Pic of my “New” Wine boxes headboard

IMG_4947The gap between the bottom of the boxes and top of the mattress is on purpose, for my future memory foam mattress topper. The curtains will be hung higher someday. My antique receipt spike will also have a picture impaled on it and something on the top so I don’t impale myself while dreaming. I hope to find more wine boxes to put on the other wall in the corner, plus add at least one above for more shelving. This is what it is for now. I like it, I have somewhere for my tissues and lava lamp. What more could a girl ask for? You see someone else is comfortable and stinking up my pillow with dog funk oil.

 

Posting Until My Eyeballs Burn Out

IMG_4457I did not bake anything today, but it has not been too stormy out. I had more snow in that previous mailbox picture than we have now. That is with a few inches already on the ground. I went out this afternoon to get the real queen her hypoallergenic $100 a bag food. I did not have to clear off my car. My son stayed home from school sick, school was not cancelled. He has a touch of bronchitis, which he always seems to get. He must be sick, he went to bed early without me suggesting it, on a weekend.

I have been trying to list my millions of items of junk for sale. I need to ramp up the profits to pay for all my repair woes of late. I suppose the next electric bill will be off the charts as well. I sold only three items so far this month, about 1/5 of the dollar amount I made the first week of Oct., Nov., or Dec. and lower than last month too. Last month tanked, and this month so far is much worse. I won’t give up my hope that better things will happen.

I received a helpful email from someone who identified my pulley gadget  I have had listed. He said it was a barbed wire stretcher, for putting up or repairing fence. I guess I won’t need it. I like my barbed wire un-stretched. That is the picture of part of the rusty contraption. I really did not buy this, it came inside the wagon I bought at the auction. I might as well make a few bucks on it. It takes me hours to take pictures, list, pack, send, so in other words I am worth about 50 cents per hour. I only need to work 10 hours to buy a quart of juice.
