Found my new love on the side of the road...

Yes, on the side of the road, standing in the rain...(actually lying on it's side in the mud), no umbrella, no coat. My new love waited for me...and I found it, rescued it and LOVE it!!!! It has seen better days, but that's okay. I love it's chippy, peeling beauty. I would NEVER trade it in for a newer, sleeker model...Plus, it was FREE. Yes, my friends, free. We have an annual bulk item pick up day in our town. Once a year, we can haul out as much crap as we can find and put it on the curb and Waste Management picks it up for free. (free is a GOOD word, no?) Well, someone mistook it for trash, cuz there it was...waiting for me!!!
Here's my loot I found at an Estate sale today:

Don't you love when that happens? I once found a pottery barn bed and a mirror in a large dumpster... My husband couldn't believe I had actually climbed in!!
