Wednesday, June 2nd and I haven’t blogged in almost a week! It was nice to do nothing but relax and BBQ and spend lots of QT with friends and family but I’m glad to be back. I’ll be posting some photos from the past week as soon as they finish downloading (there’s a lot) but in the meantime, let me show you some iPhone pics from my walk last night. Taking a page out of Diana’s book (she is the brilliant mind behind Fine Diving), I took a little stroll down four alleyways and found some goodies.
I’m sure every single one of you has at one time had a chair like the one pictured above. I remember my Dad’s pretty clearly because it fell onto my right toe while wrestling with my brother when I was about 12. It’s not a special chair and I didn’t think it would fit in my car so I left it where it was. Still, it’s a decent find and would work for a side chair or on the back porch with some quality spray paint or a simple cushion.
I walked up to this bad boy with bated breath– was it concrete? Wouldn’t it be perfect for the porch? Alas, it was crappy plastic and had a gash down the side. I contemplated taking it anyways but decided my porch was getting a little too crowded anyways.
These I did take. I had been looking for some shabby windows to clean up for awhile and these are in fair condition. The paint isn’t peeling and the glass isn’t completely covered in dirt. During a visit to Sweet Water Organics on Monday, I saw some neat uses for discarded windows and doors to add to the ones I posted about a few months ago when I visited Ipsento Coffee Shop’s new back room. We’ll see what we can chef up for these windows. I’ll keep you posted!
That’s my beginning of the month alley walk. Did anyone else do the same?
