Happy Monday! We spent the afternoon yesterday raking leaves, which is at least a month long job around here. I love our trees but the work they create in autumn is slightly daunting!
My favorite find this week is this huge, extremely tall metal horse. To add to his charm, he has a jagged metal tail that is very child friendly and makes him the perfect addition to a family home.NOT. I’m just joking! I saw him the other day in my favorite HomeGoods store and had to take a pic to share. I get such a kick out of some of their inventory. Funny thing is that it all sells! Amazing!
My real favorite find is this sweet little chest of drawers. A little boy named Howard owned it and wrote a sign that he attached to the drawer – Baseball Card Collection. He also stuck many baseball stickers onto the drawer (thanks, Howard) and this was obviously a well loved piece of furniture. It is now in terrible shape and needs a lot of TLC.
I think it will look great when fixed up and painted. I hope that another child will use and love it next!
i love quirky animals, but even that horse is over the top for me. 😉
It wouldn’t even fit in my house – too tall 🙂
Never know what you will find–metal horse is certainly unusual. Raked leaves this weekend, big blister on my thumb and lots more leaves to fall
Hope your blister heals! Many more leaves to fall here too and its supposed to become very cold. Raking in the cold – not looking forward to it!

who ever buys that horse has way more money to waste than i do ha ha, can’t wait to see the howard dresser xx
Yes, I agree! And it was expensive, too!
I have seen that horse in two other HomeGoods. They must have gotten a really good deal on those. I want to know who buys them.
Can’t wait to see how beautiful Howard’s dresser will be once it’s painted!
About 4 or 5 years ago, whilst my hubby was raking leaves and I was helping to bag them, I asked him why he couldn’t use the lawn mower with the grass clipping catcher thingy attached to pick up the leaves? Once the bag was full, the shredded leaves could be spread in our flower beds as mulch. He gave it a try, and it worked like a charm! We still have oodles of gum balls that need to be dealt with, but that’s another story! Sorry to have turned your blog in Home & Garden! 🙂
Oh, and have fun with those stickers! 🙂
I wish we could! Our lawn mower finally gave up the ghost 🙁 so bagging leaves it is!
