Dumpster Diving.

I am going to miss the folks at the Bellair Garden Dump something serious when I move to Hluhluwe. My latest haul includes 3 wooden tool boxes, a perfectly good pine chair, some window frames and light fittings.

The selection of windows is staggering. Some are going to end up as picture frames, chalkboards, mirrors and all sorts of funky stuff like that. The trellis cabinet doors are going to become bedside table tops. 

I got four of these wall mounted light fitting. Imagine what it will look like with flowers cascading out of them.

And my favourites. I have always had a thing for boxes. Some tool hire company threw all their wooden boxes out and replaced them with plastic crates.

I am not going to be able to do much about my treasures-in-the-making for the next couple of days as I am going on an extended roadtrip. Durban toOrpen Gate at Kruger National Park, then to Hluhluwe, where I will meet the Hubcap, and the all the way to Vilanculos. And all this is 90% work and 10% play.
