Last week was a very busy and taxing time!! A long weekend was just what the doctor ordered. Each Saturday morning, the good ambassador of America that I am, I head to our town’s recycling center. That is such a cool place, by the way! Subject for another day. I go to dump our stuff that we accumulated during the week. I always feel good going, besides the recycling bit, it is such a relief that Americans are not the only ones with a lot of trash!
As I was finishing sorting and dumping our glass bottles, someone laid these green jugs on top of the bins. I thought, well…. I was not leaving until I could find out if this was for real. I s-l-o-w-l-y continued disposing of our bottles while keeping my eye on the jugs. That person never came back. Hot dogs!!!!! I smiled thinking another person’s trash is someone else’ s treasure. I loaded those bad boys in my glass bin and headed to my car. I really did try not to smile.
A man followed me. He asked, in German, where I found those and if I was taking all three. In my fabulous Germenglish, I pointed to the glass section and yes, they were all coming home with me. Then I smiled. I might have even batted an eyelid or two…..
I could not wait to get them home!
Yes, I got them for free!!!!! An amazingly lucky find. Even Hubby was impressed. So many possibilities for these beauties. I will have fun finding them a home! Two large and one smaller. Check out the shade when the light hit them. I am a such a sucker for colored glass.
This was on one of the large ones. Have no idea what it telling me. I am just tickled they are mine!
