Someone's trash = our new treasures

Yesterday I was running late for the hairdressers but as I walked up the street I saw some old cane chairs out on someone's verge. 
I went through this whole dilemma of being late and thinking 'should I tell David about them'? 'Will they still be there when they get back'. 'Are they worth it'? I tried to ring David, who was home, but my mobile didn't have any reception which was completely frustrating as I was close enough to yell and he probably would have heard me, but I guess I didn't want to look silly. So, I ran back home and suggested he have a look to see if they were worth taking. Fortunately, after all that hassle they were. 
So here are our new garden chairs on a beautiful spring day in a beautiful spring garden.

I love the fact that our washing was dry and put away all before the sun went down!

All those delays meant I had to power walk to the hairdresser, but heck, it was all worth it!
 Isn't spring just beautiful!
Cheers

Spring is definitely beautiful and you have so many lovely flowers in your garden already!
The chairs are from IKEA, by the way. I wished I didn't recognise all IKEA furniture :)

Like Mirre I recognised the chairs as Ikea as well, I wonder why anyone would have wanted to throw them out. If it had of been me, I would have been grabbing them as well. Your ranuncs look just gorgeous, I didn't put any in this year, wishing I did now.

wow your garden is gorgeous!! just lovely, and those chairs!! how amazing to score them for free, you did well. I am so happy you like my recommendations. It's nice to know people are still reading even though I haven't had a finished handmade item for ages. I hope you get to read Stravinsky's Lunch it's a great read and I am sure you need a break from your homework now and then!!! I am going to mention another movie soon that I thought was fabulous
