There's a garden center not too far from us that uses lots of old furniture outdoors as props for the plants. I loved this old chair, and I longed to rescue it from the elements.

Confession time: I have a toy box. Several, actually. Plastic bins full of interesting junk that might come in handy for photography someday. There's the liner from a cereal box, several dozen egg shells, string, pressed leaves, buttons, broken tools...you get the picture. So to speak.
Included in the pile are the salvaged head components of a discarded electric shaver. This is one of three blade covers, photographed on a Fisher Price tracing toy (back-lighting box) I held onto from when my kids were little.
Hoarding. It's a Good Thing.
