On a recent work-related visit to a teeny, tiny little town in the middle of nowhere, I stumbled upon this pile of old bricks. The house (a portion of which is shown in the top right corner) had burned, and these beauties were salvaged from the wreckage.

I couldn't help but wonder where these bricks would eventually end up. What would they be in their next life? My imagination went WILD with the possibilities! Personally, I would be willing to give them a nice home, and lovingly care for them. Unfortunately, no one offered to hand them over!!

What would you do with these bricks? I'm really hoping that my friend the Vinyl Villager responds to this question...he always has the BEST ideas:)

The temperature is hovering in the mid-seventies today. It gives me hope that spring is near. It's been a long, hard winter, and this chick is SO ready to get outside and play in the dirt!!!

So would be creating some sort of a path with these. Not just a straight one, but a winding type path.

I have a really large, really old school bell. Those bricks would make a fantastic base:)

They'd make a nice walkway down to my swimming pool. I don't have a swimming pool, but we are dreaming here, right?

Hope someone does something wonderful with them.

Oh I LOVE me some salvaged brick. I guarantee there is a homeowner somewhere looking for those exact bricks to match their house for an addition or remodeling job.

As for me, wouldn't they make a great patio edging? Or as a low wall around flower beds? Or maybe even a pair of pillars at the end of the driveway?

I like T's idea ... a winding path ... through some lovely gardens.

YIKES!! I am so over construction. The sight of those lovely bricks makes me a little sick. I am sure they would just give Cdub another idea! Delivah me!

I say make a nice path leading to your new brick patio with a hot tub so when I visit we can admire the good job CB did.
