Ruffles are everywhere. They are so trendy right now and I love it. I have seen them on shirts, onesies, aprons, skirts, tank tops, socks, necklaces, shoes, purses, and pillows.
I told you I wanted to add some color to the Roadkill Rescue headboard and bedding. I love all the stark white and how versatile it is. With a change of pillows I have a whole new look. However, it was killing me not to have some color on the bed. So I had to whip up some pillows to change that and ruffles were necessary.
What do you think? Do I need something more? Maybe one more pillow between the two of them? Or is the outrageous pattern and foofy frills enough?
See that beat up desk in the corner? Yep… found it roadside. FREEEEE BABYYYYY! I haven’t decided if it is going to stay there yet. I usually have things sit there for a couple of days before I make a decision of whether or not I like it in that spot or not. Then it gets a refab.
Speaking of free…I always run the night before trash pickup. This week was heavy trash pickup which means you can throw out anything. I loves me some heavy trash pick up days! I always seem to score some incredible treasures. Do you like how I schedule my runs around trash? LOL!
So I was doing my 4 mile run and I spotted that desk. I didn’t know if it was truly trash or not because there were no trash cans around it. I went up to the door all sweaty and gross and asked the guy and he looked at me like I had horns on my head when I asked if I could have it. So I moved it out of the way so no one else would snatch it up.
Then I spotted another beauty that was clearly being thrown away…
So I actually did my four mile run in 37 minutes, 15 seconds. That is the by far the fastest I have ever ran four miles. I was so nervous someone would take the chest that I think I was kickin’ chickin so I could get home, hop in my mom van, and go grab it before someone else saw the potential in it.
No I will not tell you where I live or what day trash pick up is. It is my trash…step off!
Tomorrow I will show you the uber cool prize pack for the Roadkill Rescue party on Monday.
