“One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” My mom told me in our orange convertible rabbit. I felt myself melting as my mom pulled it over to the side of the road and threw in an old dresser that ended up sticking up above the seats. With the top down everyone could see me.
As a kid I was embarrassed but I soaked in her smile, and joy as she found something that she knew had potential. She cleaned it up and brought new life into it. She invested time.
Something many people don’t want to do anymore. Invest time.
I married a man that has no problem investing time into something that may not have value or use to another person.
When we moved out to the country from the city just over a year ago we were strolling through our very own woods and found some old tractor parts and then an old farm truck.
I like to think I can see potential in people more than old farm equipment so I let my husband take the lead on this one.
He knew we would need a trailer around the farm so he decided to turn that old farm truck into a trailer.
That’s exactly what he did.
Now if you have been following my blogs for awhile you know I have to get a deal on everything. Patience is a big contributor to finding amazing deals. We were driving home from church one day and found these tires on the side of the road, free. Wouldn’t Ya know they were the exact size we needed for the trailer!
The trailer has served a wonderful purpose already here on the homestead. The rides the girls and I take in it up to the woods over the bumps laughing and giggling while we sit on old pillows. We joke and laugh that one day we could create a pumpkin patch and give rides to other kids up to the pumpkins, we’ll see.
Welcome! I have desired my own backyard farm since I was a girl. I started a frugal crazy couponing lifestyle that allowed us to pay off our debt, create an online business and purchase our farmhouse and land. Join me as I share everything we are learning with you to encourage and inspire your dreams.
