Picking the Garbage Pays Off!

So on Sunday we went to visit G'ma and as we walked by her condo's garbage cans in the parking lot there was this very elegant lamp sitting by the side all forgotten. My Husband said maybe he could fix it so I packed it in the car and we took a chance and OMGOSH...I'm so Happy!!

I also share a fast Wine Cork holder idea that I saw from another Blogger..Very Country!

My camera's batteries are dead so I just uploaded a video...Hope u have a few minutes to watch!

Have you ever picked the Garbage for a prized find before? Don't be shy..Share with me!!
