Project 365, but which day is it?

It is Day 80, as a matter of fact.

I love going to thrift shops. There are all sorts of interesting items that people collected and then decided they could do without, or inherited and didn't want or just got tired of and there those items were, waiting patiently for some other person to come along and just not be able to live without them! As one who is currently de-cluttering, I don't need any of those items, but I like to look and think about the stories of who used them.

Like the photograph below of the bicycles. Five of these little girl bikes were hanging outside at the front of the thrift shop. They looked so giggly, and pink and glittery, and girlie. Do those girlie bike riders now have iPads and text incessantly with their friends? Are they driving? Do they have boyfriends?

And the photograph of the blue desk chair that used to be red and was painted blue. What is its history? How is it going to be used next?

So, here are my thrift shop photographs for today.

I've also added a photo of a beautiful sunrise from a couple of days ago. It was early and the sun was just coming up, bathing the top of the tree in brilliant gold. It was incredible! I guess you had to be there.
