My Second First: Trash or Treasure

Last night, I went to a Trash or Treasure party. Each guest brought 10 items she wanted to get rid of. Upon arrival, we put them into categories on tables, like kitchen, holidays, jewelry, home dec, etc.

We had time to look around at all of the offerings. So, we secretly picked out the items we wanted to take home. Some things were brand new, some were really used.

Oh yeah, snacks!

Our hostess announced round 1. We each selected the thing we wanted most. She gave us 10 minutes to make a good decision. Then she rang a bell and announced round 2. We chose again. And so on.

I had a mental list of 5 things, and would you believe it? Every one of those things went in round 1. Bummer! They were good....

So I tried to think creatively and ended up happy with the stuff I selected to take home. My first pic was the dictionary. I plan to use it to cut up for mixed media projects.

I also got a hard back cook book. I am going to paint the pages and make myself a cookbook with new recipes that I try and like.

These are cookie decorating thing a ma jigs, I don't know what they are really called. They could be used for that or to press into clay, or for painting backgrounds.

I had a great time, met some fabulous women, got rid of some stuff I didn't want, and got a few new things that did not cost me a cent.

Who doesn't love a party with a purpose?

I like your idea of using the cookbook for your own. Hope you'll share how it goes with us.

Such an excellent idea! Really goes to show that one person's trash is another's treasure!
