A New Life for Some Old Clothes

A few days ago while out on a walk, I came across a tumbled-over cardboard box with clothes spilling out of it. Clearly somebody was tossing them out--they were in the dirt, on the street, and smelly.

But I saw they were in good condition and just needed to be cleaned.

I took them all home and ran them through a wash and dry. Here's most of what was tossed out:


Some blue jeans, some tee shirts, some sweatshirts:


This one in particular looked so cozy. The hood is lined with faux fur:


 It almost looked like an animal curled up in there and went to sleep:


There was also a hand-knit scarf, with this pretty button to fasten it snug around the neck.


I will never understand why people throw out perfectly good clothes when there are folks in this world who don't have enough warm, clean things to wear.

I am taking the sweatshirts and the knit scarf to Lovely Daughter #2, whose students--and their parents--often don't have enough warm clothes to get through a Boston winter.

The rest of the pile goes off to charity.

  1. They were in a box, maybe to be picked up. Person probably thought some lucky folk would pass by.

  3. Style has indications in every one of the fields of human movement, that is when can talk about design when we allude to points, for example, engineering, attire, music, beauty care products, excitement, types of discourse or even governmental issues or innovation. Anything in these fields can be portrayed as being in vogue or not. At the point when one talks about realism or pattern s utilizing the term 'design', it tends to be related with a negative significance.
