Ya know when I was talking in an earlier post about not wanting to be a collector of stuff?
I was totally talking about the kid's stuff.
Cuz, if I was talking about my stuff, the following pictures would confirm that I am a hypocrite.
And, who would want that.
with that being said...
Here are my freebies of the week...
All these art supplies came out of the dumpster at GW.
A lot of the little brushes were new, some still in their package.
We couldn't even reach them all but just grabbed the ones near the top.
This cute little V-tech toy was still in it's box.
It hooks up to the TV and is for toddlers.
Lily had such a fun time pushing all the buttons and watching what was happening on the TV screen.
Apparently it was a bit too much for my supercool 15 year old, Michael.
He left the room but not before remarking that he was ready to go throw himself off of the room.
Four picture frames (with GW tags still on them)
Two games (haven't checked to see if all the pieces are there yet)
One little glass globe thingie
One hardback American Tourister Suitcase.
I sure love me some suitcases.
I still haven't
Guess I'd better get on that...
Small metal file cabinet.
Really good shape except for the circular rust stain on the top.
Corey needed somewhere to store all those old files from his business that you have to hang on to, like forever...
I scored this heavier then sin dresser for free off of Craigslist.
Corey thought that it must have its drawers full of bricks because it was so heavy.
No drawer pulls but that is easily fixed.
A free oak coffee table that just needs a sanding and new coat of paint.
I admit that I squealed out loud when Corey unloaded this free dresser.
I can't believe that someone just wanted this gone...for free.
They were moving and just wanted it gone.
And last, but not least...
When Josh, Liz and I were out garage-saling this weekend we picked up this chair (with matching couch) off of the curb in front of the cutest old lady thatyoueverdidsee's house.
This set (in need of new upholstery) she had owned since before I was born and it dates back to the 30's or 40's. I lovelovelove the wooden accents.
These will look perfect in my front room...
After it gets remodeled...
And after I get the set reupholstered...
She made me promise "after" pictures.
And I promised her visitation rights.
The furniture has lived through teenagers once.
Hope it can do it again...
