Yes, I'm a hick...but hey, it keeps it out of the landfill.....and money in my pocket....Yea!! more stamps.....See, there is a method to my madness.....lol!!!
Sheri -- good find!!! I am not above that myself. I have this gorgeous painted tin tray - like 24" by 40" - big enough to sit on top of my bookshelf and look really pretty. The paint was chipped in places but I touched it up. Picked it up right out of someone's trash pile. Yup. Happy day for me!!
