A Portrait of Free

Free garbage picked table, free vintage pottery and flowers from my backyard. Yeah, living frugally is a terrible sacrifice.

Free, free, free- I like it! (pottery especially…)

Very pretty, but I wish I could see the table better. Are the legs metal? Is it bow shaped, or straight and flat.

Beautiful vase and flowers btw!

Oh, yes! Such a giant sacrifice! If everyone realized how fun it is to be frugal, everyone would be doing it.

You poor, deprived child. It must be so hard…Ha Ha! Looks like something something out of Better Homes and Gardens. Makes me want to go dumpster diving.
