Foto Fridays: One man’s trash…

Though I hope never to amass so many things that I don’t want or need, I really enjoyed going to the World’s Longest Yard Sale last weekend. It was amazing to see what kinds of things people hung on to over the years, and fun to imagine what kind of makeovers I could give the old furniture (in the vein of design*sponge Before & Afters). And it kind of makes you wonder, what kind of junk will I keep for fifty years and then decide to sell on the side of the road?

While I’m not crazy about the one example in this picture, I usually LOVE old bottles and things made out of blue glass. For no good reason at all! Some day I want a mostly black and white room so I can accent it with blue glass pieces like whoa.

Also, Andy’s mom and I totally would have fought over this chicken — if it hadn’t cost $75.

    Looks like fun! Did someone say fun? Yes that’s what I’ll be having now that I’m done, and not feeling so sick.

    Did I take you to Uncommon Objects on South Congress? The photos remind me of that store.

  2. Kristan says:

    Hmm, nope, don’t think I’ve been to Uncommon Objects.

    i stumbled across this; i don’t know if you already know about it, but thought it’d be of interest:

  4. Kristan says:

    No, I haven’t seen that, thank you!!

  5. michelle says:

    Oh this looks like fun! Your puppy is cute too.

  6. Kristan says:

    It was. A great designer like you would probably have a field day there. :)

    And thank you! I love him to death.

  7. Michele says:

    I love the chicken! Wish I lived closer. I would love to go to the yard sale!

  8. Kristan says:

    Yeah, he’s a pretty cool dude. ;P

    By the way, your jewelry is way cool!
