I am really happy for you...really

The other day as I was reading how Christina at No.29 picked up this up Ballard's mirror on the side of the road
I thought to myself, hmmm, maybe I can be so lucky and find something so wonderful, beautiful and free.
 I wouldn't mind finding one of these beauties on the
 side of my road

That would make me happy,
or one of these would be super cool

Or, I would be over the moon thrilled if I found this

But no, instead I found these
Wait... look, there's 2. How awesome is that!
  Anybody need a mattress? I would be happy to share my roadside treasure. I will even deliver it to you.
What  junk treasure have you found on the side of your road?
Note: Unfortunately living in the country has it's disadvantages, one of them being the above which was taken on the way to drive my son to school. People see country roads as a way to dump used, nasty, old mattress's and their dogs . I don't get it.

It's amazing what can be found on the side of a country road! I've found A/C units, washers, and more dogs than I care to mention! But we still love where we live and I could never be a city girl!

It's crazy, isn't it? I don't know why people think they can just dump their garbage on country roads. Drooling over the mirror find! Thanks for sharing.

Just found your blog and I loved looking through your pics. Those chairs are so fun with the white trim. AND haha, about the mattresses, I hate when people dump stuff on the side of roads expecting other people to deal with it. There is so much gross trash all over the sidewalks in SF. Nice post, following you now

Believe me this doesn't happen everyday! I'd love to pretend that Ballard items are dropping out of the sky. I think it was just my fairy godmother.
