Good Saturday to you! How is your day going? Mine, you asked? Pretty quiet here, even napped for a couple hours today.
The other day I was digging in the garage and stumbled across my Dad’s license plate collection! Now I see where I get the pack rat syndrome from. It is hereditary. Plates range from 1959 (something is older that me) to late 90’s when he stopped driving.
This first photo is hard to make out but it is ’59.
Some of the twine he tied them together with was still intact, I just left it. I found some twine I had here and tied 7 of them together to create a piece of art (will post soon). I think it’s just something sentimental in me that I brought these old rusty plates from Ohio to Florida with me! Somethings are meant to be kept and cherished no matter how old and tattered. Memories of the cars he drove came into play when I was going through these.. What old and tattered hand me downs did you keep?
Last week I was driving down a side street and saw a pile of things someone had thrown out. I kept driving to my destination, but I kept thinking about these darned panel doors I saw. I drove back past but the owner’s were in the driveway, so I didn’t stop.
But, as you can see I did pick them up. Today, I was out doing some errands and thought I will take a gander past to see if they’re still there, thinking the junk man or trash man picked them up by now! But, low and behold they were still there!!!!
Yee haw, I put ole Bessie Bella in park, popped open the back door and not walked but ran over to the pile one by one picking them up and putting them in B.B. By the time I was done loading, I looked around and traffic was behind and in front of me! Nothing stops a Dumpster Diving Diva!!! YEEHAW I scored.. No one even blew their horn!!!
6 doors in all! 3 sets of two with the hinges attached! All painted in white. I took the hose to them but will be turning them into something nice and useful here soon!
Still haven’t changed the date of the cam! Oh well…..
Thanks for coming along with me on my Saturday Junkin Journey!
What did you score this weekend???
That’s all now folks! Enjoy your weekend and God Bless!
