Oh my gosh!!! I am glad that you were there for the save. I can't believe someone would just break those up. But then again I can't believe the tile that was pulled out-what I would give to have a bathroom with that tile.
In my neighborhood I believe that I am your
neighbor. Someday people will be hauling off my treasures from the big dumpster they bring in to clear out my years of collecting. ;-)


Ha Hs Ha....Maybe we should call you the "Dumpster Diva". I keep learning new terms or words from you like "Dumpster Stalker" :-)
Love those colored tiles too!What a save on those glass doors!!I'm sure you'll put them to good use.Not sure how anyone can throw things like that away.I'm glad you were able to salvage some of it. Seems like such a waste to not recycle things.
Have a great weekend!!


Those doors are magnificent! Good diving!! I hope they will work out for your bathroom. Somehow I know they will. I would have saved the sweet garden girl, too!
Have a great trip to FC.

Nice save! I'm glad you rescued those doors. They will be fabulous in your remodel.


I can't believe that people who are flipping houses don't know the value of items they are ripping out. Those doors are fabulous!

I'm glad you left the toiddy in the dumpter. I recently saw one in a front yard -- it made an interesting planter!

What a wonderful day with wonderful saves. I love the cards and doors you found.



Those windows are an awesome save. Just thinking about that boy breaking them makes me cringe. I don't "get" people who don't "get" it and I suppose they don't "get" me - LOL!!!
And no, I wasn't wondering why you saved the dust pan. I would have done the same thing. "Got" it!

I am mighty glad you saved those doors ..... they are beautiful ! Good for you and I know that you will put them to very good use. I can't get over how great they are. Wow. I am also sure your neighbor would be happy to know that you have them !

The dust pan is so special!!! and the doors!! Can't wait to see your bathroom remodel using the doors!!


Laurie, What an amazing save those cabinet doors are! I hope one day you give us another tour of your collections behind the cabinets you had made.
Cupcake liners and such - It always amazes me that with the HUGE antique malls here in Ohio we NEVER see the items you find where you live. Darn don't these Ohioans know any better!
PS MY absolutely LOVELY M-E creation came in the mail today. I love that we all get the chance to own some of your finds through your art! Elizabeth


Hi Laurie!

Oh, these doors are fabulous!!! I can't believe the kid was going to break them up!! Love those moth ball containers too! I can honestly say, that I have never seen one. Now I want one for my shelf collection of vintage things. I love the idea of putting in the air freshener. I would have been in that dumpster too!! lol!


Oh, what fun goodies!! Those doors are awesome, and I can't wait to see what you do with them!! Have a great day!! xo Heather


Ohhhh I love me a good dive in a dumpster :)

Good save on those doors, they're fabulous!


That green tile is gorgeous...I can only imagine it in its glory days...why on earth anyone would want to pummel these doors is beyond me...I would run screaming out the front door...wait. What must we look like? crazy stalker vintage ladies....fun times...smiles...Renee


Phew! You saved 'em! Your neighbor sounds like quite a character ... I'm sure it took someone with your cheeful disposition to turn him around.
