My Dumpster Runneth over – Trashy Tuesday

Feeling trashed from election results?  Jumping for joy but have a media hangover?  

Regardless of how you feel from election results, I’ve got all the junk and a fabulous round up of junky news and trashy finds.

If you are a regular here, you might be wondering if I fell in a Dumpster and couldn’t get up.  I have been BUSY!  I had a fun Sister’s getaway weekend in Cayucos, California.  A beautiful little beach town in Central Coastal California.

The next weekend I jetted to Utah with Suffering Husband to visit College Aged Daughter. Even though I only had a carry on little suit case, it didn’t stop me from checking out the local trash.

Anyone in the market for theater seating?  I can tell you the secret location if you have an extra 30 feet of seating space in your home.

How about a dresser that looks like it has survived a harsh winter and rainy summer!  

Are you in need of some extra plates for Thanksgiving?  I know where to find a secret box of them! 

How about a pile of inspiration!  What?  You think that looks like a pile of junk? Well guess what, it is!  It was a giant pile of junk I found on my way home from a birthday hike with a group of friends.  My friend’s birthday, not mine, but I got a fantastic birthday present too with some of the junk I hauled home from this pile. 

What I didn’t haul home but was generously gifted to me was this HUGE old Steamer Trunk and a wonderful little Sewing Cabinet.  

I can’t wait to make over my free finds with Debi’s DIY Paint.  If you haven’t tried it, check it out.  It’s 100% Natural, 9 ingredients + love and check out the labels, the cans even come with a QR code on the back that links directly to a fun Debi’s Design Diary video showing you how to use the products.  

That’s it for my piles of trash.  I hope your proverbial Dumpsters Runneth Over with good things for you too.  

Happy Trashy Tuesday!

    And are you going to show us what you found in that ugly pile ? What was the thing near the pink plastic kiddie chair that looks all carved and lovely??? I’d certainly go through that pile if I had a pair of gloves…. and even if I didn’t have the gloves! There would have to be SOMETHING in there! and you found it! WHAT ? WHAT !?

    Also glad you had some fun! Gee, CA looks so dry in that first picture. I hope y’all get some rains soon.
