Some of our very best finds have come at no cost.
Yes, I really like "free".
It is harder to find, but every now and again you do.
That item at the edge of the road waiting for the garbage truck.
Maybe even a "take me, I'm yours" sign on it.
This fabulous urn was a free find.
Dave found it along the road.
It is large & heavy & chippy & rusted.
Did I say fabulous?
This outhouse was a free find.
Dave found it in a cemetery down the road from our house,
on it's side...waiting for some sad fate.
The cemetery board voted to let us adopt it, even
helped to load it on the trailer....
and now here it stands in our apple orchard,
proudly holding baskets & a bird nest or two.
This charming little green table was a free find.
Dave found this along a country road -- lost & lonely.
Now it has a farm to live on happily ever after.
And the story goes on & on. Found. Free. Reclaimed.
Reloved. Found. Free. Reclaimed. Reloved.
I do like "free"....and I do appreciate Dave's ability to find & rescue.
Yes, Dave -- I do believe you are an American Picker --- or at the very least
a true Wisconsin Picker.
You win (but so do I).
What have you found "free"? -- do tell.
