getting to the heart of the matter...
yesterday while junking, this vintage container caught my eye. i loved the color, texture and especially the black vinyl handle. it will make a great wine bottle holder or some other, unyet thought of, necessity. stored inside were a bunch of old hair rollers that went straight to the trash. but then suddenly, the "j" chromosome (junk ?, judy ?, Jesus ? not sure which) screamed "wait...back up the waste management truck!" the very thought of coiled wire inside the hair rollers caused me to begin to salivate! so I dug them out of the with the black mesh and out with the bristles to reveal the sought after precious wire...and i love them! they will probably end up on a Christmas tree, embellished with sparkle or other glitz. they will definitely be schmaltzy! i thought i was done, when again, the "j" chromosome began to speak.."what about the lowly bristles?" so i dug deeper into the trash, and after giving them great consisderation, i began to see vintage 'bottle trees'. out came the scissors and with a few snips, they were transformed into little them too! i'm holding off on emptying the trash, just in case the "j" chromosome speaks again about the black mesh.

1 Samuel 16:7..."God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart"

thank you, Lord, for letting me have wire coils AND bottle brush trees as a bonus!
