It's a good thing I always have my camera or my phone with me at all times so I can take pictures of random crap for you.
So I really have a thing about hoarders. I know that it's a mental illness and all of that, I've seen countless episodes of the show yet when you come in contact with a hoarder in real life, it still throws you back. My mom's neighbor is a total hoarder. Just by looking in the windows you see all of this crap and the thing that sets me on edge? The deck.
You see, they have this really great deck on their house. It's gorgeous. The things I could do with a deck like that. But they have this area rug draped on it. For the last two or three years. In fact, it only moves from one section to the other when it rots out part of the deck. This summer they actually replaced a section of the deck only to put the rug back on it.
Then one of my favorite things is to wander around second hand stores and thrift shops to find cool stuff. While at a second hand store the other day, I saw this sad gem:
And sometimes it's best just to recycle something. Because this is not a decorative tin.
