This seemed kind of funny at first, but then it made me sad! Fremont St in Las Vegas, last week. So many naked men (mostly old and/or over weight), taking pictures in hopes to get money from the crowd. The night before I was on the strip watching high rollers throw down $100k for a single bet, then I go down the road a bit to see this. If nothing else, it makes me realize how fortunate I am to have the life that I have. Please, do NOT take your young children anywhere near Las Vegas, not ok!

I have never seen a bike like this before, which is why I took a picture, haha. I rarely shop at Walmart, but every time I do, I see interesting things. My son was looking for a display port (tech stuff), but I had to stop and look at this bike. Not a bad price, I guess. I think you would need to be quite strong to ride the bike though, it’s a bit heavy. Something for everybody πŸ™‚

Day Dreaming About Dobby

Yes, I admit it, I took these pictures sitting at my desk at work. I often stop and day dream.

I bought these at the 9 3/4 store at San Pancras station, London. There was no way I was going to pass on these beauties!
Dobby is delightful, even cast in metal. Dobby will always be alive in our hearts πŸ™‚

Furniture with soul

I am addicted to restoring old pieces of furniture that I find. Each piece of furniture that I refurbish has a story to tell. This chair was full of horse hair and springs, dating back to somewhere around the 1930’s.

I found this beat up rocking chair sitting in the street, for free. For less than $40.00, I gave this old girl a lift, a tuck and a snip! I chose not to fix every nook and cranny because I want some of the wear and tear to show, some of it’s history. I had some left over fabric, so I made a quick pillow.
