I was so fortunate to receive this huge pile of Junk!

My elderly neighbor moved into a retirement home recently and her family has been cleaning up around her house hoping to put it on the market this summer. I watched them loading up a piece of fencing and decided I must ask them if they would be reusing it? They did have plans to use it but a few minutes later they came over to see if I wanted to look through the rest of their junk pile since they know my husband and I like to make things. I was so excited I could hardly stand it! Here are some pictures of all the "junk" I brought home.

I love to see what everyone is finding out there, it proves that less is going to the landfill and that is a great thing, Georgia Posted: 2:28 pm on May 30th

What I wouldn't do to get my hands on some (most) of the items. What a wonderful thing your neighbor did, by giving you so much FUN stuff. Can't wait to see what all this becomes.

(I can only guess your neighbor's family was happy to see this all go, so it's a win-win situation for all.)

Congratulations and have a blast creating!!!
