auction freebies

the buyers have a week after our local fire company 
has had their auction to pick up their articles.
after that, what's left is for the pickings -
or the scroungers!

several years ago,
i picked up an old victorian wooden bed...
delightful score!
one which you'll see on later posts.

i almost forgot it!
this is what i picked up this time...

a foam mattress for the foam
a blue door for which i have n.o.i.d.e.a what i'm going to do with -
i have no blue in my decor...
i just liked it!
there was a stack of old doors there,
 with the old door knobs and hinges...
'twas a shame to throw them away!
(i did advertise on facebook!)
- two bed frames -
again, i don't know what i'll do with 'em...
but i sure have seen some lovely posts on stray bed frames!
an U.G.L.Y! lamp for which i do have plans
a hanging light with shade that i will use outdoors
this board that was too interesting to let there
a milk glass dish (?), black binding (?), sconce-turned-cloche
if i change my mind on any of these,
i can set them out at the end of our drive as freebies!
shocking, i know!
...time will tell...
it was fun scrounging!

Great finds! And yes, I think you have probably seen some cool headboard frame posts on Funky Junk Interiors. Just happened across both your blogs in the last week. Good Luck!
