Dump Haul And More

Sunrise this morning. As you can see the leaves are not on the trees yet but if you look at all the color you would think it was fall not spring.

I went to the dump with husband on Monday. 
Well, he needed help, didn't he???
We got this table and two chairs (that I did not get a photo of) that a friend took. 

2 packages of never opened single white shelves. I know if I can't use it someone will. 

A never opened picture frame that I believe will fit the new artwork I just got. winner winner!

But the very best thing of all!!! a yard of this wool!!!
It has been in the washer and the dryer all set to use. It was folded nicely on one of their shelves.  
How I love picking our dump! 

On Wednesday husband shoots pool, he is usually leaving when I am getting home from work. Every man for himself for dinner. I grilled a hot dog poured a glass of wine and I am enjoying the glorious weather we are having. For some reason I am now an early riser so this morning I put on my sneakers and headed out for a walk. I spooked a deer on the way back. I got home and was out in the yard and my neighbor was walking by and spooked another one in my yard. They are looking to eat my hosta!!! 
I am getting ready to go away on Friday morning for hooking fun. Work figured out my replacement. I may have packed enough wool for 10 rugs! But what to bring? I do not want to get caught short on wool! No one is selling wool at this retreat, so I have to be prepared.
We are in for summer weather, and I will be near the Maine coast pretty perfect. 
Enjoy the rest of your week!

Hi Cathy, wow, you really got lucky at The Dump. We have 7 deers that are eating all my poor Hostas and tulips and they make their rounds in the neighborhood. I'm not so fond of deers anymore.
Good for you relaxing with a nice glass of wine after a good day's work. At least you have one more day to get ready for the Hook-In. Have fun. I'm going to a Hook-In on the 28th. It should be fun but I need to dye some wool.

Take care, hugs

Seems your area is warmer than the southern parts near my area. The high today I think was 62 degrees and had drizzle and still windy residue from the nor'easter. The best pick from your da'dump was that wool, good score!!!!

Wow, great finds at the dump. Hope you enjoy your outing and have a nice weekend! said...

Have a spectacular time hooking! You surely got some superb finds. Why would people toss brand new things?

Lady Locust said...

Wow! So is this really called "dump envy" ? ๐Ÿ˜‚ You find such treasures.

That dump find looks just like my oak table in my kitchen! (Without the white paint.) What a find! Have fun at your retreat. You'll be getting the beautiful weather we've had this week. Enjoy!

Wowza.... You have some kind of high end dump LOL. I know you told us about it before, but...dang, "dump envy" is right! Have a great time! Looking forward to see your accomplishments. We went from a wintery spring smack dab into mid-August-like weather....I can't believe it....91ยบ today! Seriously??!! I don't think we broke 90 at all all last summer. Yikes. ~Robin~

Cathy...your "dump" goods are always amazing! Good find on the wool!
I hope you are having a blast off hooking. I packed everything but the kitchen sink for my rug camp. Since I drove alone, I went! It is always great to spend time with like minded people.
