Dear Lord - please send me a sign that I'm not the only one obsessively scanning the landscape for DIY-supply-junk while driving around these days. I will be looking for a Scavenger's Anonymous group very soon!
Today while out running errands, I asked my husband to "bear with me" and pull over to a junk pile area I had spied from the highway. Having just decided to start carrying my camera around more often, I was prepared for a little blog eye candy goodness. Plus, I already knew in my heart of hearts that I would find a little somethin' somethin' to take home.
Here was my quick 5-minute stopover:
First of all, having grown up in the middle of the U.S. with no natural lakes or ocean, I am a sucker for seagulls. I like them. I like what they stand for. If there are seagulls, then big water is near! Now I live on the west coast of Sweden - so I get to enjoy lots of seagulls these days. This little guy caught my eye as soon as I hopped out of the car.
This was the pile I spied from the highway. We didn't pick up the pallet today...but I know where it is :-)
This little heavy metal guy did find his way into my car and is now waiting patiently out with my marble slap bits until inspiration hits.
Do you also make random and sudden stops by the side of the road and think..."I can do something with that!" ? If so, please leave me a little comment sympathy and tell me about your 'condition'.
Until next time...
