One Woman’s Trash


My friend Steve refers to his flea market finds as “antiques of a dubious nature.”  I’m sure his wife calls them something else.  A few weeks ago I purchased this rusted metal frame during my Colgate University reunion weekend, intending to turn it into a wonderful memento.  When I brought it to the folks at Architectural Metal and Glass and tried to explain my vision, their reaction was, at best, dubious.  I picked it up today and I think they were actually sorry to see it go.  Perhaps it is possible to turn an ugly duckling into a swan?  Now if I can only figure out a way to hang this in the garden to reflect the hydrangeas while they last.  Nestling it in the shrub is not a practical solution.
