Notes from the commute: vintage dustpan

The photo above is from our chaotic laundry nook, which is where I stash my bike gear. This little dust pan was left here by the previous tenants (or maybe the owner?). For no good reason, it reminds me of my grandmother. I don't know if she had one like this, or if it's the colors, or design, or even the 'old'ness of it, but every time I see this goofy remant of someone else's life, I flash back to my own childhood.

Have you ever kept something that belonged to someone who lived in your home before you did?

  1. Some curtain rods were left behind (no not fancy ones - the cheap spring-loaded ones) and I've been reusing them! :)

    Other stuff...hm. Not so much, but then most places I've moved have been devoid of "stuff." Nothing fun and sentimental like that!


Thank you so much for taking a moment to leave a comment. I love hearing from you!
