You know you're addicted to garden junk when you can't sleep because you want to be first in line for the President's Day Sale at your favorite thrift store AND there is a winter advisory for your area!

Wishing you all well

Max

You know you're addicted when you are packing to move, and buy more glassware & garden junk, then bring it home to pack & move!! Done this more than a couple of times over the last few weeks! LOL

You know you are addicted when you look at everything you see in terms of whether it can last outside, and wonder what flower/plant/animal or architectural feature you could make it into!

When you buy a truck, just to make sure you can move all your cool old brick with you when your house sells(Hubby came home and said"What's that?" in the yard(truck), and I said it's a piece of Garden Art.....heh heh!
AND: When you have so many Projects to do it has to spill over into the next year, just to get them all done...thus the saying: project #948!lol!

You know you're addicted when you MUST visit the Garden Junk forum at least once a day to see if anyone posted something new! You know you're addicted when at rummage sales or thrift stores, people give you odd looks when they see the assortment of weird stuff you buy. Us Kathys must think alike, I agree with concreteprimroses that you tend to look at anything and everything to figure out how you could repurpose it and how well it would hold up to the elements.

When you live in a motorhome full-time and you are expected to keep the loads light..
but you had to buy a 3rd tote to put all of your special finds in to travel back north for the summer to build..
Man!! The back of the van is full.. going to have to stop soon!!

Did I forget to mention that Saturday is also half price day at GW?

RE: You know you're addicted when ....

When you bring home another good bargain & your DH says, didn't you just donate one of those to GWill last yr!

"Nah...you're thinkin' about my friend!" LOL! Jeanne S.

Never throw anything away! Quote for the day:
