Decluttering books

So DH's book collection was getting out of control so I did something that kinda turned into a pain in the ass for me. I saw a nice bookcase ($25) on Craiglist so I went and bought it for him so he would have room to expand his collection.

So as he is going thru our bookshelves, he starts weeding out all sorts of cool books of MINE - and decides we don't need them anymore. I don't think so. If he thinks I am getting rid of my "How to Pick Up Men!" book (copyright 1972) he is crazy. If anyone ever asks me for picking up men advice I will need to have a resource handy since I am pretty rusty.

For example I'll give you a tip from the book (page 58). To get a conversation going, go up to a man and ask him the size of his chest. Explain that you are knitting a sweater for your brother.

You're welcome.

My first thrift store buy of the year

Here's a pic of my first thrift store buy of the year.  Bought on Jan. 2 for $5.  It's a sewing machine cabinet (minus the sewing machine).  I plan on refinishing it and giving it to my mom (who needs a table about this height).

Just a post to say I'm alive

Happy New Years to all and just a quick post to say that I'm still alive and still amassing my fortune in junk.

Just returned from a trip to upstate New York where I got my annual re-qualification in driving in hazardous and treacherous snow covered road conditions.  And managed to find an estate sale to boot!

More to come, I promise.
