Over the last week or so, we've had an inorganic collection here, do you have them where you live? It's a once a year "rubbish" collection where you put out all those things that can't fit in your weekly rubbish collection. Furniture, clothing, bric-a-brac etc. It's quite a sight! All those big piles of rubbish filling up front yards. It really amazes me what people think is rubbish, stuff that I feel should be donated to charity shops rather then end up in the dump.

This year like most others, we've found a few treasures amongst those big piles. We didn't do too much looking around, but just keeping an eye out on our normal walking to school/preschool routes. Mr A spotted  a stool and proudly carried it home, I spotted this piece of printed vintage linen. It was nice and clean and just a bit damp from all the rain, nothing a spin in the washing machine couldn't fix.

I like to think that all the "treasures" find new homes before the rubbish trucks turn up to take them to the dump. Have you had any luck finding roadside treasures?

Speaking of treasures, have you seen this lovely giveaway?

  1. We have them here. Unfortunately people drive round in vans all day picking up anything semi decent that gets put out though, so we never manage to get anything at all - too slow!
