the residents of brooklyn building where i live have a wonderful habit of leaving unwanted items on the "free" counter in our hallway. this is a fantastic way of recycling and preventing miscellaneous stuff from ending up in a landfill. one person's trash is another man's treasure as they say. this is my find of the week: a dandelion paperweight. this takes me right back to the days when my dad experimented with making resin paperweights. to this day, i love the toxic smell.... really.
let's hope this dandelion really is a harbinger of the spring weather we are are all dying for.
