A Good Monday Morning

Look what I found on the street curb Monday morning.  Just waiting for me to drive by and claim it.

This was my first time claiming something I have found on the side of the road.  I have always felt a little weird doing it but this time I really wanted this.  Of course, it didn't fit in the car so Mike and I had to walk about two blocks, not far at all, each way.  I have to admit the way home seemed a little longer but I wasn't about to complain since this had been my idea.  Quinn complained for me instead when he fell down and skinned his knee, yelling, "I didn't even want to come and get it!"

When I initially saw it, I immediately thought of using it as a display unit for my soaps when I do craft shows.  However, I realized as a tried unsuccessfully to squeeze it into the trunk that that wasn't going to happen.  I believe the previous owners used it as a potting table so it is a little dirty.  Nothing that a good wash can't take care of.  A little TLC.  I have plans.

To make the morning even better, when we returned home, I learned that I had won a hand dipped indigo-dyed tote bag from bookhou.  Can a Monday morning get any better?!  I made Quinnie high-five me which he did because by this time he had forgotten about his scraped knee.

As much as I want to start cleaning my find, my spare moments this week are going to be spent preparing for the Mamas and Chicks show this Friday, March 30th in Oshawa.  It's my first show of the year and I am really looking forward to it.  If you're in the area, pop in and say hi.


  1. I love a good roadside find!

  2. What a wonderful find!!! And so close to your house!!!!!
    I wish I was near enough to come see your show . . .
    Maybe you'll go on soap tour someday : )


  3. great roadside find - i look forward to seeing it all fixed up. and yay - i was so excited for you when i saw you'd won a bookhou bag - i was lucky enough to win my own last year.

  4. That is a LOVELY find! Now, why can't I make finds like that??

  5. Happy find! Happy win! And I know you'll have a happy first show of the season.

  6. Great find! I can't wait to see what you do with it. :-)

  7. cool find! i could use that right now for the diaper changing station i don't have.

  8. Looks like it used to be a change table or something. Regardless...I love the idea of a potting table and will have to keep my eyes open for something like this to use as a potting table - the dirt all over our kitchen table is getting old.

  9. I love this! I wouldn't have been able to resist it either...what great fun to clean up! Theresa
