I happened upon this red wagon, free – curbside.
Really? Was this cute red wagon (with all the sides!) really free to take?
It had all the tell-tale signs of needing to come home with me.
Spiderwebs. Dust. Chips. Rust.
I passed it once, then came back ‘round. Still there.
To be sure, I went to the front door to ring the bell and ask.
All while noticing the planters leading up to the house as I walked up. A good sign.
A dear lady answered the door. Yes, it was free.
She had used it in her garden, was downsizing and went on to share her life story.
She was a sweetie and my daughter and I didn’t mind lending an ear.
Once loaded and then home, I gave it a good sweeping and de-cobwebbing and stored in it in the garage for a week. Then dusted it again and set off to buy Mums.
On a quest for kale, I looked at a few stores before I found it. Hard to find this year!
I finally did find and huge. $5.99 each at a local nicer grocery store.
I’ve had the old enamelware chamber pot for a while,
just waiting for kale and a pair of gloves.
I went the opposite of DIY and bought the burlap banner at Target for $3.
It's pretty fun seeing this greet me each day, coffee in my hand.
My mind is percolating with ideas for Christmas…..
