one man's trash is another man's treasure...

this past weekend i participated in a really neat service project to help raise money for my friends, Lesli & Ryan's adoption from Ethiopia (same folks i designed this for)... we filled seven 45-ft. long dumpsters on Saturday all in an effort to help a widow out while raising money to help an orphan get a family through an organization called Lifesong for Orphans... the widow, Ms. Lucille, had two houses packed full of really interesting items-antique & vintage stuff that she had collected over her 70+ years on earth... all very cool to look at but don't worry...i was not distracted beyond being helpful...i was still very helpful even though i came home with a carload of items from the "Goodwill" pile...wanted to share them with you since they are some great finds & may appear in an upcoming Posies & Plume photo shoot

read more & check out the pictures from the day here

what is discarded by one, may be another's most precious treasure
in the case of my "finds" & in the case of the lucky kiddo
who will be the adopted son of my sweet friends
