  1. I can be your sister. I once found an old, upholstered, torn up child sized recliner, sitting by the road to be picked up by the garbage man. I took it home. My husband was not happy. I took all the covers off, and rewrapped it with padding. I bought some lovely girly fabric and stapled it down good. A new cushion finished it off. It was well loved for years.

  2. I've lost track of how many vacuum-cleaners I've rescued and re-homed after a quick trip to the garage for a new belt and bag after snaking out the inevitable clog.
    What surprises me more than the number of high-end vacuum cleaners I find on the side of the road, is the number of people who mention to me in casual conversation their need for a vacuum cleaner.
