I can't help it, I pick up things. I've mentioned before that I'm a pick-up artist. My eyes are usually trained toward the ground looking for the unexpected, the beautiful, the useful items that others often overlook. I've had friends and followers mention that I always find such unique items, but I tend to counter with the fact that I'm always looking.
Because of this tendency, I also have amassed quite a few collections. Just in the last few weeks, I've added to these stockpiles. What I'll do with my found treasures is usually a mystery, but sometimes I have an inkling.
My treasures aren't always found on the ground, but simply items that others might not take a second glace at.
I'm not always one to stop for piles of junk on the curbside. But, a box of rusty parts had me making a U-turn in my own neighborhood.
I couldn't wait to sort through the box to see what treasures emerged.
Another treasure I snapped up was this tiny beauty.
With all these treasures in my possession, I should probably get around to using them. One day. For now, they're just hoarded with all my other collections.
Do you find treasures in unexpected places too? How do use them?
