I found the 24" x 24" big pillow on top of a trash pile down the street a few weeks ago. There was a matching one, but the ruffles were torn on it, so I left it there. I should have taken it anyway, and seen what I could salvage from it, even if just the fabric. Did I mention that I snatched it as the garbage truck was rumbling down the street?
My all-time favorite curb side treasure: the rocker recliner I have spent countless hours in over the past 10 years. Has it really been that long? This was my favorite go-to spot while I was pregnant and nursing my last two babies (now 6 and 9 years old), and it's still my favorite place in the house to sit! Now I get to rock my two grandsons in it! It's in my bedroom right next to my bookcase. Years after I found this chair around the corner with a "free" sign on it, I noticed the homeowner in his yard and thanked him. He said the chair was in the house when they bought it, and didn't go with their furniture. He figured someone else could use it. He was right! We also got a white bookcase from his curb about the same time.
