Finds

Saturday night we stumbled upon a dumpster parked outside one of the houses on my block. The woman that lived there must have passed away because they seem to be gutting the house-- the dumpster was full of old carpet, furniture and a huge array of her belongings. I found an white metal media cart, boxes and boxes of amazing vintage Christmas lights, old scrapbooks of 1950's movie star postcards and this green footrest and two gorgeous vintage suitcases. It was sad to see her life sort of tossed away and headed to the landfill, but it felt a little better to give some of her things a new home.
