Trash to Treasure Tuesday - Redneck Inventions

My friend, Diane at A Picture is Worth A Thousand... hosts Trash to Treasure. She's a creative and crafty lady. She finds what someone thinks is not worth much and tweaks it a bit to create a thing of beauty and value for her home. If you'd like to join in the fun, click on the link.

I'm stretching the idea of trash to treasure as I am neither creative nor crafty, so please bear with me. I'm offering what some people may think is TRASH and hopefully, after you've inspected, you'll agree that it's TREASURE.

I have special friends who live in Jackson, Mississippi, and they sent me these pictures in an email. (I say that right up front so that you Southerners don't hate this Yankee gal!

Redneck Tree Swing


Redneck cooler races
Now that's class. Notice that she is not spilling her beer.


Redneck windshield defroster


Redneck toilet paper holder


Redneck camper


Redneck motorcycle mover


Redneck revenge


Redneck motorcycle sidecar


Redneck discus



Redneck ice fishing



A Redneck Wedding
(Is that a mermaid on the far left? She is even pulling the top to stay down. )
Don't laugh, you know you are related to these people somehow!


The Treasure here is the chuckle that these Redneck jokes gave you.

LOL, Sally! I've seen some of these before, but this one is news to me! Too funny! I love the one that says God will get you for stealing our mower. ;-)

Life is such fun, and people are so colorful! I can't imagine how those people can keep an upholstered piece as a swing when it rains! Maybe they cover it with visquene or something. Enquiring minds want to know! ;-D

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hi Sally,

I came across your blog via Diane and Lorrie's blogs. So glad I found you! Your blog is a lot of fun to read! I'm originally from Arkansas and have lived all over the south, so it's sad to say, but I can relate to a lot of these photos. And, yes, I do believe I could be related to a few of them in that last picture. :)

Those are funny. I've seen one of a redneck wedding cake which was a multi-tiered tray of Twinkies and a redneck gingerbread house which looked like a trailer.

Barbara H. said...

I thought maybe I had posted about those pictures, so I looked, and the wedding cake is here:

Heidi Pocketbook said...

The redneck wedding photo looks like something you'd see on "Keeping Up Appearances"-the British sitcom! I'm thinking they are long lost relatives of Hyacinth Bucket..

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Nope, don't see any of my relatives here, and if I do, I'm not telling! LOLOL! I've seen the tree swing but not the rest! Now they were all just too funny!

Your backyard is amazing in your header picture! ...paradise! ~hugs, Rhonda

Elizabeth Ann said...

I've just moved to Mississippi and I sooooo want to fit in...this post will help tremendously!! ROFL!!

I really have to say though that the TP holder is a clever idea! But I do need to get a floppy hat with flowers for the next wedding.

Thanks for the treasure.:)
