If You are Moving, I will Take Your “Crap”

 

The gift of having a bum arm/hand this week has been that I didn’t have to help Art’s daughter move. I haven’t had to help clean her apartment and have not had to lift one thing. In fact, I get yelled at if I try. Yeah me, except for the yelling part!

The cool thing about other people moving is they get rid of a lot of stuff. Since she is moving out of state, she is getting rid of almost everything.

So far, I have grabbed this lovely and in major need of help dining set.

I didn’t even have the heart to show you the table top, but here are the legs. The poor set was serving as their patio table and is going to take a lot of work.

And just so you don’t think that everything could be better described as road kill, this wonderful mirror.

Yes, I know that it would have been photographed better outside, but remember, I get yelled at when I try to lift things.

I could get totally used to having my Thrifty Thursday finds delivered right to my front door.

I am hoping that I will get that table and chairs all rehabilitated an pretty again in time for

That is so true about taking stuff off of moving people's hands. I have a great stained glass my neighbor had in her garage covered in paint, and now it is gorgeous and hanging in my kitchen. She just didn't want to lug it and do the work another day, so I did. So fun to give something new life.
