you won't believe this

Have you ever found something hidden within a thrifted treasure? Well I have. And some of you remember the story... when I found a marquise diamond wedding ring set inside a vintage purse. Oh and forever losing my diamond in a pair of jeans at Goodwill. Read those stories HERE. And then there's the piano that friends gave us, that came with a dead mouse. But this latest find could seriously beat all. This may go down as the most unusual hidden find within a thrifted treasure.
You won't believe it.
Ok, you've seen this picture before. Truly one of my all-time favorite yard sale finds. Love this hutch. Purchased several years ago for $40.00. Well, today I needed to pull out the heavy-laden drawers so we could lug it outside while we start demolition on our kitchen.

And this is what I found.

I KNOW! What in the world is a black strapless bra doing smashed behind the bottom drawer of my beloved hutch!!

And what do you suppose were the first words that came out of my husband's mouth?

"LUCY, you got some 'splainin to do!"

I've been laughing about it all day!!

But you can be sure that Randy & I have had more fun surmising how that bra got there from the questionable past we've created it to have. My poor hutch. I shutter to think what she's been party to.

SO, can you top that?!
Tell me what you've been surprised to find inside a favorite find?

Linda, I hate to tell you this but I think that your linens occupy a drawer that held undergarments in its former life. What a funny thing to find!

Thats hilarious! LOL!

I found something the other day, but much grosser and NOT inside a treasure! The bottom drawer of our vanity wouldnt shut all the way, so I pulled the drawer out to see why. I was disgusted to find that it was an old toilet brush in the way! ANd it wasnt alone, there were at least 3 more. Gross! I just pushed the drawer back in and moved on. I cant wait to redo out 48 year old bathroom!
