Curbside Joy

Spring in Prescott marks the town’s annual garbage pick-up week, where citizens can put just about anything on their curb to be taken away.  Piles begin to appear around the neighborhoods and sometimes on our walk, my husband and I will spy something we can use.  Here’s what we came upon this week:


I actually think this was made by a close friend of mine and his late mother a few years ago when they were making folk art crosses, altars, and such.  It needs some fixin’ up for sure, but hey, that’s what I do!  I’m going to call my friend and see if he wants to I.D. this piece…but regardless, I can’t wait to mess with it a little.  I wonder what this incarnation will bring?

I find JOY in the craziest places!
