score!!!!

OK, so I've been looking for a cheap wheel barrow to plant up for the last couple of years, and I FINALLY found one at a GS yesterday for $7. The only catch, was that it was full of "junk", and if I wanted the wheelbarrow, I had to take the junk too (the sacrifices we must make....lol) So today I was starting to wade through the "junk". I found some random wire to hang some lanterns in my hummer bed, a stake to mount one of my glass suns, and a random longer piece of metal that I hammered straight to mount my other glass sun, and in the midst of the pile, as I scraped away some of the tarnish......COPPER TUBING!!! how excited am I! I was going to have to buy some for one of the many projects in progress, and now it just fell into my lap!!

Nothing is more fun than a box deal or in your case a wheel barrow deal. And what a deal it was!

Holy Cow, what a haul you made. Guess that wheelbarrow was the wait in finding one. Congratulations!

RE: score!!!!

I need several of those.


 o
RE: score!!!!

lol....I'm not up to several.....yet....I've actually been more focused on painting. At the same GS I picked up 10 or so cupboard fronts (at least I think that's what they were going to be) and painted one for a welcome sign for friends that just moved into a new home. I also picked up a cheap coat tree that is going to be a bottle tree.....as soon as I drink some more wine.....I'll post the pix I have later tonite -- off to jury duty (nothing better to dampen the creativity!!)

RE: score!!!!

Great haul and good reuses. I'm jealous of the coat tree, someone beat me to one at a YS this past weekend.
