Hi folks! Here are a bunch of pictures that i finally got around to uploading.

For those of you who were wondering about the conditions under which i find food in my dumpster, a picture:

A smashed guitar. I couldn't bear to leave it for the landfill - do you know how much labour goes into making an instrument? so i think i might fill it with dirt and make a planter. or attach legs and make a coffee table. what do you guys think?

and i finally made my polka dot wall! Scavenged coasters with magazine pasted on them:

the plant menagerie is growing:

Classic cinder block shelf (cinder blocks are VERY heavy, ugh) made from scavenged materials... the glass top is from a door i dismantled from a nunnery that i guess is getting renovated. It's bubbly! (the glass, not the nuns). Also note that every one of those plants was grown from a cutting, and they're all planted in scavenged containers, with black earth and peat moss -- also thanks to the perfect bags of potting soil i keep finding in the alleys around here.

A funny mirrored dohickey, don't know what it's for, all i saw was the perfect little rectangle mirrors, which i have now pried off and am storing for use in a table mosaic, when i ever get around to that. I've been stockpiling found tiles for a few weeks now - it'll be a major post when i finally get to it. stay tuned.

Remember the poloroid camera i found a few weeks ago? i looked it up on ebay to see if maybe i could sell it, but it was only worth a measly $8 -- so i decided to smash it up instead. i feel like the lenses from it would make neat pendants or sun prisms or something... SMASHY SMASHY!

and inside, surprise! there is a tiny spool of very fine green copper(?) wire... it's like thread. i'm excited to use it.

And a small dresser of many drawers. I've always wanted something like this to put my craft shite in, and finally the alley delivered. it was really really dirty and the paint chipping off, but after a good scrape and soapy scrub it just looks "antique", heh.
