I stood beside my wood guy Keith and looked on in horror at something he found that he thought I might like. “I have no idea what it’s for, but it looks like something you might use” he told me. My eyes went wide and I covered my mouth and said quietly “I know what it’s for.” He turned to me and said “Oh really?” “Yes, really.” I said as my shock turned into laughter.

Poor Keith was confused by my reaction and rightly so. You see, I had just thrown that out at the free shed when I was at the dump over a week ago! It was an epic failure. I have no words to describe how awful it was!

I stood there staring in disbelief that this thing had managed to find its way back to me. Interestingly though, and much like the ring in The Lord of the Rings, I couldn’t help but wonder if it wanted to be found! Keith got it from a lady that picked it up from the dump, who just happened to run into Keith and offered it to him, and he thought of me.

In case you’re curious, it was to hang jewelry. I didn’t take it back, and Keith has no need for it. So off it went again, and this time I hope it’s gone to it’s forever home – where ever that may be!

You can’t un-see my picture below, but if you like, check out my decor that didn’t fall flat!

  1. What a really, funny moment you described, Lisa! I can just see you shocked and amazed and cracking up?,

  2. I wish we could see the face of each person that picks these up. Don’t think the story’s over yet
