A sad broken Christmas ornament.
Hi Lavinia. I think she was a figurine that was to be placed on a mantle or table. She very large for an ornament.
I think it is the hat that makes it look like the flat top for the metal hoop of an ornament. She is so thin and hollow. A fragile beauty for sure. You do find amazing trash and turn it into art.
Her bottom part, a long dress, was under the dumpster. It was double her top, which would make her about 18 to 21 inches tall when she was in one piece.
Clever! You find the most remarkable trash, Tim! She’s lovely as half the woman she used to be, she’s no doubt a stunner as a whole woman.
There seems to be a never ending supply of remarkable trash downtown. There is now so much more trash downtown these days. 3rd street was covered with trash between Central and Gold this morning.
Hard to like your reply. I image it will get worse between now and then.
When we move in the spring, I will no longer have all the trash for subjects. But it will be nice not to have to wade through trash to get to the office.
Sounds good, I’m sure you’ll find some interesting subjects.
There’s a Harley dealer next door to the new place we will most-likely move into.
No shortage of inspiration there.
Ouch. Not unlike 2020 though, eh?
Very much like it. Thanks, John.
A near perfect commentary. The degeneration is sad.
Very sad. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
Oh, the poor thing! But she was left with something to read, at least…
At least. Thanks, Dale.
You do find some interesting things laying about there!
Life in the dead zone. Thanks, Teri.
Looks like some Balkan female costume, a souvenir someone might have loved before it broke.
I agree. Thanks, Puzzleblume.
I must say she’s more than that she’s another entry for the caption comp.
Thanks, Shey. Are you up to putting on a comp?
You know I should get the dues on that Timothy. Leave ti with me!
certainly some strange trash…!
Like Dale says, at least she’s got something to read during dire times!!! 😉 Great find!
What a puzzling find, Tim. You made it into a composition that really does speak 1000 words. Hugs on the wing.
If it was a different time I would have fished the other part of her out from under the dumpster and glued her back together. But I’m not touching anything on the street, especially around a dumpster.
Yeah… I wouldn’t either. Stay safe.
Ciao Timothy 🙂
If only we knew of her torrid past and what led her to this dichotomized state!
One of those unsolvable dichotomized mysteries. Thanks, Tiffany.
She is fairly tall, even for a figurine. Even the book seems to have met the same ending.
She was tall. Many books discarded in the toss. Thanks, David.
She was tall….
Yes she was. Thanks, Holly.
A pity. 😊
As I mentioned to Teagan, if it were a different time, I would have retrieved the rest of her that was under the dumpster and tried gluing her back together. I’m not touching anything on the street these days.
Smart man. What kind of Draconian world are we living in?
hidden treasures of Albuquerque
Sad treasures. Thanks, Holly.
Well, unfortunate things happen to people, and they break under the pressure. At least she still reads, a bit!
