when you realize that you get excited about something that most people would toss away.
Something like an old ladder that you can’t really use anymore because it
has been sitting outdoors for years and years and it has weathered too much to be usable.
I love pieces that were once used in everyday life without much of a thought
and every time I drove by and saw it… I fell more in love with it.
where this forgotten treasure in all it’s worn & weathered glory would be perfect.
“It’s a junky old ladder. Why would you want to put a ladder indoors?
I think it just sounds weird.”
(Can you imagine the raised eyebrows and look he got? Mmhmm. You know the ‘look’
I might add… he get’s that ‘look’ quite frequently ;)! )
So… while the husband was at work
I decided to just stop and ask the owner about that old ladder.
I offered to buy it and was so thrilled when I was told to go ahead and take it.
and set it against that lonely looking wall that was just waiting for it.
