The other day I started out on a walk with one of my pugs, and around the first corner, I found a driveway filled with stuff. It looked like a garage sale, but there were no signs anywhere. So I knocked on the door, and the owners told me they were just tossing everything out.
Could I pick up a few things?, I asked. Sure!, they replied.
So this is what I nabbed:
Two adorable china dog bowls. The first one has a polka-dot brim (yay!) and a really cute little bone painted in the bottom of the bowl:
The second bowl has this on the side:
In the bottom of the bowl is Mr. Adventure Dog, himself:
Love the beret he's wearing. Around the rest of the sides are more cute canines:
In addition to the dog bowls, I found two terrific picture frames:
I love the carved roses in the corners of the white one:
And the texture in the silver one is great:
I think I'll spray-paint both of them glossy white and hang them on a dark or colored wall. Even with nothing in them, they should be lovely:
If you want to find curbside treasures, this is a good time of year (spring cleaning, you know). Alleyways are always a good place to look, and the day before the trash is picked up is a good time to troll the neighborhood.
Good luck treasure hunting!
