Almost time for a shopping intervention





I finished painting today. The paint I used yesterday was a new gallon of Olympic Premium - bought at thrift for $3. Not as wonderful as my favorite Benjamin Moore Aura paint (the unofficial paint of the YSQ Castle) but it was still a good, low odor paint.

Anyhow, long story short, I did end up removing the mattress and boxsprings today of the spare bed (the bed frame is missing a few nuts & bolts, so I figured I would stop at my local Ace store tomorrow and buy what need. Don't need the bed falling apart when my guests visit.

Anyhow, look at my junk under the bed. I found some neat stuff that I hadn't seen in a while. Like my favorite Liddle Kiddle - my Kozmic Kiddle. If you didn't grow up playing with Liddle Kiddles, then you don't know what you missed. And I found my Car-municator. A paddle communication device used to get the attention of other cute drivers. And my ice cream scooper collection. Some of the scoopers are in my Marx beauty vanity (I removed the legs for storage)






p.s. yes, that is some empty cereal boxes you see. You don't save them do you? Because 50 years from now, they are going to be worth tons. And I will be the only one who was smart enough to save them. Mark my words. Email me 50 years from now so I can tell you "I told you so!"

You and my mother--Cut from the same cloth

The ice cream scoop collection is killing me!!

I'd say it's past time for that intervention! LOL You sound just like my mom. She saves stuff and used the logic that it will be worth something someday, LOL

I need to show these pictures to my husband. He said he doesn't believe there could possibly be other women who rabidly collect things. Ah-HA!!!

From the looks of it, you could pack a lot more stuff under there. I know I could.

I had a Kosmic Kiddle too, but mine is long gone. :(

Wow! Just think of the all the cash you could make if you had your own yard sale!! In 50 years, I mean.

I store things under my bed, too. I am in real trouble if the frame breaks.

Ooh, I love the Carmunicator. I'm surprised that thing didn't catch on. That would be fun!
