my Best hard rubbish find .. and so close to home.
Then, one day I walked down our driveway to check the mailbox and There She Was, -- outside my opposite neighbours house, waiting for me... Helen of Troy ...
Nick at Collecting Feathers featured recently. At some stage she has been covered with a woolly fabric. I'll investigate her further, but don't want to damage the underlayer just 'cause I need to know!
Took the pics quickly late yesterday, sorry about the mess in the garage as a background, no time to bring her inside and style her yet.
It's early on Sunday here and I'm off to my Sunday Market but had to share and hope you'll all pop over to Sophie's Flea Market Finds this week for more great bargain hunting.
PS for all our non-Melbourne friends, Hard Rubbish is conducted twice a year by our Local Council. They come around in trucks and collect you larger rubbish to take to the tip/landfill. Once Hard Rubbish Week starts you see lots and lots of cars, vans, wagons driving up and down the streets looking.... looking .... looking.... for Treasures amongst other peoples Trash, and saving our Planet from more landfill.
PPS why Helen of Troy? well my dear old neighbour is Greek, so I thought a good Greek name would be in order. -- I am open to other name suggestions of course!
