One Man's Trash is My Treasure!

Okay enough bitchin....

When Roy strutted into my life......like a peacock on a Turquoise and White Harley, he instantly thought that I needed to be put high on a pedestal....I'm gonna let him, and he carries me around on a pink satin Goose-down pillow still to this day! He tries to make all my dreams some true.....I am so spoiled!

I was bitchin'......aaahh...casually mentioned......once that I wanted some new furniture. His love seat is a piece of shit!
"I like my love seat! It's comfortable!", he retorts.
It was cream colored but thru 3 kids and umpteen bazillion cats and dogs and Roy, it's more of a dirt color.
And after one wrestlin' match that some how involved food, the arm is broken...the kids were really tough on the furniture!
And it has a good coat of hair.....I hate it!

"Wouldn't you like a big ol' leather lazy-boy recliner?" Something not bought at an auction.
"It matches Your couch!"

Well now, that was the point of gettin' rid of his love seat....I would get rid of my couch!

Hold that thought.....

He likes to go to estate auctions....the manly kind where there are manly things like tools....his obsession with tools is about like mine with shoes.....though he has more!

And there is NO DEAL beneficial to me!

At these auctions, we usually come home with all kinds of junk....my house is furnished in Late American Crap!

Lots of end tables and dressers.....that are just full of clothes!!
We have some very nice pieces...none of it matches!
He has brought home all sorts of thingamabobs that I have no clue...nor does he....he just wanted it.

He once bought me a rockin' chair....two actually.....one for the back porch and one that sits in the living room....it has clothes in it.

The one on the back porch some how was put upstairs a couple of years ago....he didn't want someone comin' to rob our house to take my chair....his heart is in the right place.

They have stolen the lawn furniture.....which was bought at an auction......it was built in 1922.....right off my front porch!!
I was workin' on it.....a project that lasted 3 years.....and poof.....one day, it was gone!!!
Roy thought that maybe the neighbors could see the potential in it and thought they could use as I hadn't touched it years.

Damn those neighbors!!!

I told him that if I ever see it sittin' someone's yard, I am takin' it back!!
To which he replied, "Don't hold your breath!"
That is his story and he is stickin' to it!!!


I have seen the other rocker upstairs....it's under a pile of clothes.


But where were we......my new piece of furniture!!


He bought me a buffet!! It's a nice piece.
"You said you wanted new furniture!"

Matchin' pieces that smell new!!

He didn't say how much he paid for it.....I don't want to know those things.

We spent most of the weekend rearrangin' my computer desk.....bought at an auction...so my new buffet would fit in with the rest of the junk.....Late American Crap!

New crap is cool.
I hate when old crap 'disapears'.
Like three little crap BBQ's have flown the coop...

I know I have to post pictures, and that will come in time, but right now I'm babying my computer. I like the new look with your collage however, so I am inspired.
Blessed Be
