Seven Things on Sunday Edition

No, I didn't give away a car, nor do I live here. But I did finally post an ad on Craigslist for my VW Beetle car cover, dealer price $365, that has been sitting in my garage for over a year. This is the pile (mostly books) that Steve and I took to the thrift store today. Even though I counted some of the books in last week's effort, there was more.
I also posted this bathroom medicine cabinet on craigslist. We never even tried to put it together. Why did we buy it? You might well ask, but we can't answer you.

I kicked the weekend off by selling this futon for $50, thus alighting my desire to sell everything that wasn't nailed down.

Like this roof rack, which was also on my beloved Beetle until November 2008, when a nutjob on the interstate caused an accident that totaled it in a transparent attempt to defraud the insurance company. Posted on craigslist today, a mere fourteen months after it became obsolete to me.

As for knitting and felting, this is the accessory case after felting. The colors blended beautifully I think. Side one.

And side two.

Really didn't need to show the cat toy ball yet as it doesn't look much different. Maybe tomorrow, eh?


  1. Good for you. I'd love to visit your thrift's fun just to look. Of course, I always find something to buy, too.
    Hope you sell all your extra stuff.

  2. It feels good tl lighten the load and make a little money.
