Reinventing Rubbish

When it comes to making someone else’s trash into our treasures, we are definitely not shy.  Our city offers a “bulky trash pick up” once a year.  Creeping slowly through the neighborhood during this time makes us feel a little like Joe Pesci & Daniel Stern in Home Alone.  We’ve stumbled upon some great finds, including a neat suitcase (circa 1970) that still waits patiently for us in the garage.  This time, we discovered these adorable terracotta planters hiding underneath some old wood.  They definitely needed some work but we immediately saw the potential.  With a little sand paper, soapy water, and a brush, these planters have been given a second chance….terracotta pots 1
