One Man's Trash is Another Cat's Treasure

Hey all you flea market junkies, thrift shoppers and garage sale addicts out there! Are you the type who can't walk past a great bargain or a see the potential in something that can be repurposed? Do you worship the junker's patron saint, Fred Sanford? Or do you just love to see old objects live out their lives 'til it hurts?
Illustration Friday posted the word and "One man's trash is another man's treasure" immediately came to mind. Not admitting guilt by any means...Ahem. But do you understand how the concept of spring cleaning can morph into a four season, life long affair?
Gotta go now- I have to throw a few things out today. Swing by and see if you'd like any of it! ;o)


  1. It would seem that great minds think alike! haha
    Very charming illustration!!

  2. I do hope you're not throwing out the cat too Michele...LOLOL! Enjoy cleaning out your closet x

  3. I have to admit I'm very guilty of feeling a need to "repurpose" everything, but I'm getting better about it. It's only fair to leave some treasures for others, right? I hope you're keeping the kitty :)

  4. Hi Folks-
    Just to clarify, cleaning the closet is where I find many of my best bargains. Lots to "repurpose" there, so it becomes necessary to sometimes just look the other way and pitch 'em.
    No cats (or other animals) are ever harmed in the process! :o)

  5. Kitty seems to be very satisfied with new comfort sleeping place. Nice work! :)
