I’ve been riding the bench (and loving every minute of it) for quite a while now. This is me stepping onto the field:
I am addicted to thrift stores, rummage sales and reading thrift store blogs. I think of myself less as a thrifter and more as a rescue worker. I feel like we are all urban archeologists, digging through layers of muck to pull out our own personal treasures.
So in the rescue vein, I’ve started Operation Channukiah Rescue. I can’t stand to see these little Channukah menorahs on the shelves of thrift stores so I adopt them and give them a cluttered home. So far I have rescued 2 and am hoping I don’t come across an electric monstrosity because I will have to stand by my mission. We can’t just play with the cute puppies at the pound!
I’m still waiting on the Geek Squad to help me figure out how to make my photos magically jump from my old camera to my new computer. Apparently you have to call them and make an appointment, they don’t just anticipate your needs. I set up my own little light box (light is too strong a word) using a toddler comforter (taken off the sleeping guy) and captured the shot using Photo Booth on my Mac. I’m hoping that won’t become a signature look!
Am I really going to push publish…
