|Hollyhock Cottage - a house of finds.|
|The cabinet on the left was found by the side of the road.|
Large things like metal kitchen cabinets, an apartment sized washing machine, a glider chair, a leather office chair, a rolling filing cabinet and two bookcases rub elbows (it is a small cottage) with innumerable baskets, a Cuisinart, a blender, a French coffee press, a Williams Sonoma popover pan, countless picture frames, a floor lamp, decorative pillows, a couple of framed cork bulletin boards, and toys for the grandchildren.
|Discarded picture frames and found bookshelves.|
A repurposed towel rack serves as an over-the-stove pan holder, an old steamer trunk at the foot of the bed holds off season blankets, a table my father made 60 years ago as a kitchen counter extension for my mother now holds my TV, DVD player and VCR. A small wrought iron kitchen rack holds movies and CDs. Even my kitchen counter tops are made of leftovers from a remodeling job. The decorative wreath at my front door? Yup, the Transfer Station.
|Bookcases, glider chair, floor lamp - tossed treasures.|
|Fence, table, umbrella, chairs, even the purple moon decoration - all finds.|
|The platform and trellis, cement steps, swing, chairs and tables, cushions, even the chandelier - all free.|
