Big Time Yuppies

I work in my local library where this little beauty was found. We check each book that is returned for damage, loose papers, etc. This tiny piece of paper was used as a bookmark.

I found this post-it note a few months ago and I have been carrying it around in my bag ever since. Every once in a while I re-find it and I am so excited for the encouraging message!

Signed, Mr./Mrs.”X”

Found on our apartment door the morning after a party. It must have been one hell of a party.

Just when I thought the world was out of things to be found, I discovered this beauty in my local park. The dog looks like a terrier.

Metro Wheel

Found on our walk to work.
