I love when i find things, especially things i would otherwise pay for. A few weeks back, as Krissy shared, a great neighbourhood in our city had a huge garage sale. I caught the tail end of it, but i did manage to score 4 sock shapers for free! The dude just didn't want to put them back in his attic, and i was walking by at the right time. While they are too big for my socks (i am a size 6 after all!), they would make great necklace holders and other fun projects.
I also love the night before garbage day. J and i were driving by a house that had a recent garage sale and had a whole lot of stuff out on their front lawn. With a bit of work, the rusty seat of this chair will be no more! It's such a cool office chair, that we just had to drive around the block (one way streets galore in Toronto) and get the chair.
My mom recently gave me a bunch of fabric pieces. While i can't admit to 'finding' these things, but they were free and fell into my lap unexpectedly, so that's close enough right? Here's a great one for you to see:
Don't you just love good ole free stuff?
