Throw out week 2013

Rescued this adorable beauty!
Again my theory becomes reality-"Us junkers are "Saving the Earth one piece of Junk at a time!"  True story.  This should be a junkers NATIONAL HOLIDAY!  This year played a nasty trick on our heart strings,  because of the flood forecast in the Fargo/Moorhead area they postponed Throw out Week for Sept. We were devastated and lost sleep!  But we soon talked ourselves into the idea of it being a good thing, allowing us to get things organized and gain room being we have been hoarding during the off season so we were healing slowly!  BUT then they changed the Forecast- No Flood and Garbage Week was back on! This meant that our curbside diving would start in just a couple days!  WHAT!!!!  We were jumping with joy I truly almost started crying!  This was a good day....our backyards were just going to have to look like a yard sale for a couple days until we get our goodies organized!  We joke around that our divorce rate goes up about 75% during this week, nothing more attractive then digging through garbage and loading up our back yard with CRAP, rarrrr!  Hahahah, they love us!  Okay back to our finds!  This year was good and bad, we didn't have a trailer {next year this is a must} so we had to pass on some AMAZING finds! Make sure to {Like} us on Facebook because through out the week we updated the page with curb alerts and hooked some people up with some fantastic curbside finds!  The weather was so so, a little chilly and it sprinkled off and on leaving some of the upholstered goods wet {sad story!}  Our Mother even blessed us with her presence and joined in on the fun!  Her first throw out week experience, and she fit in great!  No shame in the game when you are finding the treasures we did!  She'll be back! So all and all we had a good year!  Can't complain about getting a load of FREE JUNK!  Until next year, we already look forward to it {our plans are to become hired by the city and be a garbage man for that week, can you imagine what they see and find hands on! haha okay we might not go that far but maybe we could become best friends with them!}  We were also discussing that EVERY city should do this!  It SAVES so MUCH, so so so so so MUCH from going to the dump!  That's our story!  Enjoy the pictures!

A tufted chair.....perfect condition!
What my backyard was beginning to look like! Yikes! But check out all our finds!
I know right, can you believe people throw these things out!
Just some more goodies....

You know you have a problem when you take something from your own garbage pile! haha my mother-in-law was throwing it out! I saved it , took the legs off of it, and added it as wall art in my little boys vintage sport room!

This one was adorable! Even had the glass knobs!  Couldn't fit it in our vehicle, but posted it on our page and it was rescued!!

This little guy was so stinkin cute!  Reminded us of a chair that was on the set of the Movie {UP} Carl and Ellie's chairs!

Really excited about this one!

Couldn't fit this one either, but we are hoping it was saved!

Probably our favorite of our curbside finds!  Each drawer was an old filing cabinet style!  Amazing!!! But oh so BIG!  This guy was snatched up by another junk loving family Rustic Trunk!!  Yippie, so glad it was saved!

The Cutest little bed frame!
We have chairs coming out of our ears!!  But we love them!!
That concludes our Curbside diving of 2013!  Ya'll come back now ya hear!
