Something to Do While It’s Quiet

I just wanted to warn you that it’s going to be a little quiet here for the next month or so.  I’m taking a little break from updating this ...

Good Day for a (Yard) Sale

So this morning I got up literally at the crack of dawn (not on purpose) and went for a walk around the area (actually on purpose) and spotted a sign for a nearby yard sale.


Five yard sales later, I came home with this haul:

  • 1 pair of angel wings with matching halo, good for next Halloween?
  • 2 pairs of cropped pants, I will probably alter them.
  • 1 shallow basket full of clip-on roses and similar items.
  • 1 power strip (not pictured)
  • 1 wooden doll house kit

Total cost: $8.25.  Lugging it home on foot on an Arizona summer day: priceless.

I am particularly excited about the doll house, it’s the first real one I have ever had except for the cardboard one I sort of made.  I say sort of because I still haven’t finished all the rooms and I actually can’t remember when was the last time I worked on it.  I guess I sort of lost interest in cardboard, at least for that purpose.  I am actually thinking of passing the house on to someone else.  It doesn’t seem fair to let it sit there collecting dust and waiting until I “feel” like actually working on it.  I just need to find someone who is interested in working and repairing (it got damaged in the move) a doll house of cardboard.
