Dumpster Treasures


Look what I found today at the dumpster.  Beautiful!  I should tell you all that at our dumpsters people set things out beside the dumpster for others to get.  It is amazing the things you will find.  It is not uncommon to find appliances like dryers, etc.  Sometimes they will even put a paper on it telling you what is wrong with it.  We call it “greenbox shopping” (our dumpsters are green).  Anyway, today when I stopped to put the trash in, there was a box with this beautiful teacup in it.


Also this set of old teacups.  No saucers though.  Oh well, I guess you can’t have everything.


And this old sugar bowl.  I could hardly wait to get home and clean them up.  I love old dishes.

Today was busy running errands and shopping.  We have been gone all day.  Thank the good Lord our car has air conditioning as it is hot again today.   Grace has a dentist appointment tomorrow so we will be gone most of the day again.  Well, it is past time for us to eat supper so I better get busy.  Tonight’s menu is garlic bread and baked spaghetti with cantalope for dessert.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

  1. What beautiful treasures. I am sure they will be nice to use. Your supper sounds good. We are in the mid 66s right now with a breeze. I do have a window open, but I am ready to put a light weight jacket on.

    Have a great evening with your family.



  2. Those dishes are awesome! I can’t wait to see them! I guess you got my message that Quentin does work on Sunday-phooey! He is off tomorrow (not Friday) and Tuesday and Friday next week. Tuesday evening he will be traveling to somewhere for meetings on Wednesday. I hope we can work something out soon!
