Finders, Keepers

Our church has a table in the social hall where anybody can put anything for 2 weeks. If in that time anybody sees something he/she likes, just take it. Charlie and I have both helped ourselves in the past. (Charlie has also put things on the table that had to be thrown in the dumpster at the end of the allotted time.)

This past weekend there was a flower pot.

Found this on the free table.

I liked it; I took it.

It matched our terrace furniture perfectly.

And it was free, free, free.

Have you had any freebies lately?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
