About Vegas…I’m planning on going in October IF I can get a week off and I can pay for airfare. I’m less worried about getting the time off than the airfare. I won’t mention Vegas again until I officially book it. The hotel is already paid for but I still have to pick the dates.
I was supposed to be studying for finals last Saturday and I was pretty bummed about missing the big 4 hour flea market that morning. I didn’t know about it until the night before and I had already planned to work (off the clock). So I worked and skipped the flea market. As I was sitting outside studying, my (soon to be) ex-neighbor came up to me and asked if I wanted FREE STUFF. “Like what?” “lamps, household things”. “okay?…” Well here’s what I got:
- 2 coats (one leather, one peabody)
- clothes galore (mostly t-shirts, capris, shorts, PJs, boots, tennis shoes, suit jacket, etc.)
- pans and knives
- 2 prints (sort of paintings – see below)
- baskets (I love baskets!)
- a comforter
- 6 ft. like new Xmas tree (gave it to my mom because I have no use for it)
And other random stuff. They have been trying to sell the house since their mom died over a year ago. It finally sold. She was going to donate the stuff but for some reason didn’t want to give it to the Goodwill. So she let me have anything I wanted. I really don’t need to go thrifting for “new” clothes because I’ve got a ton of clothes now. Here are some pics of some of the stuff:
I was watching videos on youtube where people put their knitting needles in vases. I thought “what a good idea”. The next day I got a vase so there ya go.
Yes the lamps look a little worn but I’m not picky when it comes to home decor/furniture. Most of my stuff are hand me downs.
I cannot wait to get this dry cleaned in September. It fits perfectly.
I need to get this dry cleaned too. How much will this cost me? (I really have no idea…)
I love these! Too bad I can’t hang them since I’m living in a rental. I could probably figure out a way or I will save them for my next place.

Knitting projects of the week:
This is a scarf I’m working on. I’m not sure I have enough yarn to finish so it might just be a collar thing (?).
Hopefully this will turn into a handbag. I like my purses big. I like to be able to carry a tablet, a book, and maybe lunch…if I want. This will only be big enough for my wallet. I hope it turns out right. I love the color.
