A Goodwill find

wood-on-stand

Sometimes you find the most unusual things at Goodwill, and if you’re like me, you buy those things.

Today I went to the Goodwill across the street from my house and I found, what I can only describe as, wood on a stand. It looks like some kind of cool driftwood attached to a metal base. I think it’s weird but it seems really modern. Continue reading →
