Trash Walking

disposables, keepers, treasures

keepers and treasures

I mentioned previously that I would try, at least some of the time, to write about things other than trash. In the interest of organization, (I’m a list maker, folks, I can’t help it!), I’ve created the keepers and treasures page for the “not trash” posts I make.
Some of my keepers and treasure will be things, for sure. Sometimes things I have found while trash walking, like my weathered statue of Lord Ganesha that I picked up on the shoreline of Lake Ontario.

Found on the shoreline

Found on the shoreline

Lord Ganesha lives at my house now, on a bookshelf surrounded by an eclectic assortment of other keepers and treasures. I love the look of him, I love the story of Lord Ganesha, and I love that I found out about why he was on the shore from a Facebook friend who I have never actually met.  (Thank you, Hippie Peace Freaks!)  Some of these are gifts that I have cherished for years, that hold a great deal of meaning for me, and so I might feature one of them, and write a little something about it.  Sometimes my treasures just thrift store finds that I liked the look of, for one reason or another.  The old saying about one person’s junk is another’s treasure is very much a part of my life.
Not all of my keepers are tangible. A keeper or a treasure is a feeling that I want to hold on to, a memory that makes me smile, a moment in time that I like to revisit, a book that I love, a friendship that has stood the test of time, or an act of friendship that has brightend my day.
I hope I’ll do these keepers and treasures justice on this page.
