the couch & the creek…

Normally, I would go to great lengths to exclude most human imprint from such a photo. The annoying couch next to the stream was close enough to an earth tone to include…barely

Junk Store…

that certain smell between dust, mold and decay…stuff forgotten, abandoned or ejected

into the portal of another time…take it into you life at your own risk

it demands you skew your mind…toward those that came before

imagining a time, a way of life that may or may not have been true

Portland’s “Repurposing” of Furniture

People are so generous in Portland. I mean where else can one pack up the ‘old lady’ and drive about the nicer parts of town furniture ‘shopping’. On any given day, rain or shine, one can find upholstered couches, ottomans, chairs and mattresses on the corner or sidewalk. Even boxes or piles of old clothes can be found laying about. Today was a beautiful, sunny day in the low 30’s…a perfect day to see what could be found.

Portland Repur 1 SB

This floral print chair, minus the cushion, has been setting on this corner for four days. Optimum location and yet no one has grabbed this one up. It is right next to a bus stop, so imagine the convenience.

Now this rocker is a real find. It too has been on display for days. I am not sure if the pallet comes with it, but at least it has the cushion.

These are the types of finds that bode well for the spirit of giving in my area. Given I noticed grocery items were on whole twice as expensive as they were a year ago, even at a discount store, I maybe shouldn’t make light of such repurposing during these ‘forward’ leaning times.
