The Things You Find in the Trash


Hard to believe, but there it was, sitting with a broken spool bed, a broken chair, old mattress, post hole diggers, old garden fence and other junk: a Hoosier cabinet in all her glory. It was clean-up week in the town closest to me, and as I drove down the street, I spied this beauty.


For once the seats were in the van. We'd put them in for family reunion and they were still in place. On top of that my hubby wasn't with me. I turned my van around on a dime, I swear, and was standing there trying to figure out how to get this thing in my van when two guys walked up. And one of them was a friend of mine!

They obligingly rounded up tools and tool the cabinet base and top apart so it would fit in the van, and then loaded it up for me. Men--I admit I love the way they are.

Now it's waiting for a little repair work and it will be ready for use. I am so happy to have found this one and brought it home.
