Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 11:46 pm

This afternoon we saw a little deer while driving back to our camp. As we drove up she just stood there. Just staring at us, not breaking her stare. I’m frantically pulling my phone out of my purse to take a pic. I wanted to take a pic through the windshield. When I finally took her pic, she jumped across the street. If you zoom my pic, you’ll see her hind legs up. She looks like Rudolph but in the summer.

So then we mosied on and founds some good finds. A brand new lamp behind a hotel dumpster. The base was broken but it was still good. The shade was a little worse for the wear but we replaced that with a shade we had at our summer cabin. It has a nice little glass top table in the middle so it’s really handy.

Found a used wok (good for cooking outdoors), 2 Currier and Ives TV trays and some shelving for the cabin.

On the way back attended a garage sale. Found some great deal. Vitamin/pill holders (the plastic ones) for a quarter, a brand new shelf and candle holder for $2 and 6 beautiful glass food containers for a $1. Don’t discount garage sales or goodwill store



  1. I love deer!

  2. I really enjoy your posts, I hope that when we get a car I’ll be able to dumpster dive frequently. You are an inspiration, thank you.
