Trailers on Craigslist

 Looking for a new trailer on Craigslist- I love this boxy shape

 Great color but kinda Broncos

 Cruiser bike and trailer for sale- great set but cruisers weigh a ton. Forget about getting up steep hills with ease

 Love how clean and simple this looks but need a cover

 This is the winner pic- with waterproof bag. Asking $225

The Thrill of the Hunt

Print by Ashley G
 I just picked up my books from the library about living with less and I can't stop the urge to go thrifting. How can you say no to 50% off Saturdays at ARC? It is all about self control- don't buy a lot of garbage. I buy mostly clothes because I get bored with clothing so easily. I just rotate them out.

Vintage Book Expanding File

 Check out how to make on

  I don't know if I would want to tear apart that Handyman book- it looks interesting but I would love to make a cookbook file to put all the recipes I find in magazines. I could separate them into categories- chicken, soups, salads, sandwiches, pork, sides, etc. Vintage cookbooks are everywhere- so easy to find at thrift stores and estate sales.

Pop-Up Sale

All photos from The Brick House
  Brick House, Modernhaus, and Terri Planty held a pop-up sale (garage sale without all the crap). This is a dream sale- so much good stuff!

  This looks familiar. Fiendish Pickers- do you really have to run? The same crowds go to estate sales-  people with no manners who will haggle the price on everything.

I am always writing down songs that I like so I can post the video on Fridays. I wrote this song down twice.

 I have a stack of books on hold at the library about living with less stuff. I just cut my living space in half and now I feel like everything is right there in my face instead of spread out. I have done my best not to hold onto anything I don't need or love- my storage areas are works of art. It is so much easier getting dressed with all of my clothes in one closet.

Adeline Adeline

 It's time to update the bicycle with better toys. I need a new rear rack. Went on and found some goodies.

 Knog Cable Lock $39.95- only weighs 2 pounds!

 Compass Bell $4.99- because I have no sense of direction.

mmmmm. Nice!

a bike about town

I wanted to find a new rear bike rack and found this non-sporty bike shop, Adeline Adeline. They partnered up with Kate Spade- it so has that feel when you look at their website. Nice video- cupcakes, puppies, champagne, and flowers. Who are these people? Get a job!

 The rain has been brutal the last few days. Cold blowing rain not good for travel by bicycle. Do they make waterproof gloves for riding in the rain? They must. I was about to take off my socks and put them on my hands yesterday- it was that bad.

Cul-De-Sac Prints

 Classic Italian and Danish design in pop art colors. That's tight!

173 emails

Image from Big Apple Boxes
 I have been so involved in unpacking that I am up to 173 emails to read.  I read a post that mentioned having a distraction pad. When you are doing a project and see other things that need to be done, you can write them down instead of having several unfinished tasks started. I need to do that- I feel like a pinball machine, bouncing from project to project.

Still not completely packed and moving tomorrow. What an ordeal. I was trying to clean everything during the process- the walls need a major paint job, but the rest of the place looks good.
