HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!  My daughter-in-law had a pumpkin contest at work and the winner got a day off.  She asked me to help her decorate a pumpkin and I found the decorated pumpkins that Sue & Ki did for Country Home several years ago and basically copied one of them.  Thanks to Sue & Ki she won first place and is getting a day off!  The hat is an old funnel, the ears are bed springs, the eyes are faucet handles, the nose is the spout from a coffee pot and the mouth is pieces of an old chain.  Basically a junkin pumpkin.

I'm so jealous--2 yards that you get to go to everyday. I get the same thrill going to the salvage yard that I do going to a great garage sale. I ALWAYS find something. It is amazing what people get rid of. One thing about it--you get VERY dirty. One day on the way home from scrounging I stopped by the store to pick up some sandwich stuff and the lady looked at me (I was pretty scruffy looking)and asked if I was paying with food stamps! It's a big family joke now. Has the lower price of metal affected how much you find now? I can't believe the difference in the price now and 6 months ago.

And congrats to your DIL for winning and getting a day off. How cool is that?
