Recycle World

We have a local Recycle World or as most people refer to it as "The Dump Shop."  Which as it's name suggests is a little junk shop at the local tip for treasure that is too good to be land filled.  Our family loves a trip to the dump shop, you never know what you are going to find and you can have anything you want.  Most of the time the staff give the stuff to the kids for free and everything else seems to cost $1.00.  Mr Daddy worries we are teaching the kids be big consumers when we go there but I think we need to worry too much about the long term effects of over indulging at the tip!  On our last family outing there I got this fabulous vintage light fitting.
It needed a really good clean up as it was caked with dirt and dead insects.
On the whole it came up even better than I expected.
and  now makes a great vase.
Perfect for roses.
