Last week went by way too fast.
I had company come in to town and they are looking for a house here.
So we did some driving around. And as luck would have it we spotted something at the curb.
I never find anything good on the curb around here.
Were they really throwing it out? It seemed just fine to me.
We were unsure so I went up to the door to ask. No answer.
So we drove around some more and went back.
Again no answer.
We couldn’t fit it in her car so we decided to wait and come back with hubby’s truck.
You see, there was also this.
A very cool table.
So, later that night hubby and I went back.
Hubby went to the door.
Still no answer.
He’s like, I don’t think it’s trash.
I’m all, it’s on the curb with the yard waste. Of course it’s trash.
After driving around a bit more and after one more knock on the door we took them.
Then we ran them home really fast.
They weighted a ton!
There is a little bit of rot on the back leg so I am sure it was trash.
And no police have showed up at the door.
I’ll work on that back leg to level it out a bit.
See the stick? I need to replace that.
I have been looking for a garden bench and I think this works out perfectly.
I haven’t finished clearing out the planter bed but it will be all mulch where it sits now.
It’s just a little too hot to be clearing it out now.
They look like they had some sort of high gloss on it at some point.
Or paint. You can see it on the table legs.
What do you think I should do with them?
Paint? Stain? Clear coat?
Henry looks like he’s guarding my garden.
Actually he’s eyeballing the mailman.
That’s not what I want you to look at though.
See that little plant to the right? In front of the purple salvia?
That’s my tiny key lime tree.
And guess what I have?
Baby key limes!
I didn’t think that I would get limes until it was bigger.
The bees are always all over the salvia so I think they did their job with the lime blossoms.
I see margaritas and key lime pie in the future.
Let me know what you think I should do with the bench and table.
I’d love to hear some ideas.
Would you have picked them up?
