On Sunday evening, Lucy and I went for a walk to get some fresh air and get out of the house for a little while. We ended up walking near the Georgetown campus and quickly realized that it was move out day judging by the trash piles on the sidewalk. Most of the stuff was junk but we did find this treasure:
An oriental rug
We loaded it up on the Natty Caddy (which was also part of the trash pile) and wheeled it all the way home. We even got a few shout outs walking down M Street from some frat boys about the Natty Caddy.
Where was this for my guy friends in college!?
After much cleaning (which included draping it over our table outside and me standing on a chair to vacuum it), we put our new oriental rug in our front hall.
Not too shabby!
It just goes to show that one man's trash is another man's treasure.
