April and Dumpster Diving

April is here!  We've  been enjoying a little more outside time, and having the windows open more!

Before I get to the dumpster diving. here are some pics of my kiddos :)

Finn likes to wear his sunglasses upside down :)


Liv and Finn enjoying a foot massage together!  This was before we added the sea salt, and the bubbles took over!



Finn doesn't like the sunshine all that much.  He chose to wear mommas big ol sunglasses to keep the sun out!


This was taken yesterday.....today, he is sick...I wonder if he was trying to tell me something ;)


Ok, now onto some FUN stuff!  I have never been a dumpster diver before.  We have curbside pick up in our town every April, and folks put out tons and tons of stuff.  Then, the "crazies" come out to pick through the trash all week.  Well, this year, I decided to be one of those "crazies".  After the first day, I just kept going out!  It's amazing the things folks decide to pitch, instead of sell...


Like this Little Tikes 8 in 1 climber....it was on the curb because there is a crack in one of the pieces.  So, this went in the van....it took me about 30 minutes to figure out how to tetris the pieces in to fit it, but I did :)  I'm going to give it a coat of spray paint, and then mr Finn has a new playset!  


I found 2 of these adorandak chairs!  Lots of chippy paint, but that doesn't scare me.  They were a bit wobbly, but I tightened up the screws, and after some sanding and a new coat of paint, I think they will be beautiful! :)


A battery operated remote control car!  Now, I haven't taken the batter in to see if it works yet, or what it would even cost to get this thing working, but it was so stinking cute, I couldn't leave it just sitting there!  I have to give it a chance!!!


Liv went with me one night, and found this right away!  It hadn't been used at all, and she has always wanted one!  She has been enjoying it for sure!


This beat up beauty is outside on our walkway, just waiting for some flowers!


old spinning metal chairs....one of my favorite finds!!!


a beat up old green dresser with super cute lines :)  Still working on cleaning this one up to be able to bring into the house!

Another WHAT???  Someone had this playhouse on the curb cause it was chipping some paint....so, it's now in our backyard :)

There are so many other finds that I have in our garage, but I'm saving those for another time :)
