Friday Fragments




Welcome to Friday Fragments!  This is the place where we're able to put little snippets of fun or interesting things together without having to stretch that idea into an entire blog post.

Mrs. 4444 is our lovely host and I am so grateful for her continued hosting of this fun carnival.  For more Friday Fragments finds, please head on over to Half-Past Kissin' Time.  Thanks!

Excuse me while I have a Twilight moment.... I do not believe that Jessica could have ever been the Valedictorian at Forks High School.  It just isn't possible.  I know, that movie came out years ago but it still bugs me.

*•-:¦:-•:*''''*:•-:¦:-•

I got all the laundry done today, even a few rugs.  It really feels weird not to have a pile lurking in the corner taunting me.

*•-:¦:-•:*''''*:•-:¦:-•


I've brought home many pieces of derelict furniture from the side of the road, but this one was a hard one to leave behind.  My car was empty and I was in the right place at the right time to pick this puppy up.  I took out the drawers to see the condition of the piece and roaches seemed to come out from nowhere!  I banged on it, stomped on them and banged on the pieces some more.  When I thought I had gotten them all, there were more.  I couldn't do it.  I couldn't take home a roach motel, so I left it behind.

*•-:¦:-•:*''''*:•-:¦:-•


Our new guest bed arrives in the morning and the old one is leaving.  I am so excited I can hardly stand it.  The old one has been passed around so many times and now sports a large donut hole in the middle.  No matter where you start off on the bed, you end up in the hole.  Good riddance!

*•-:¦:-•:*''''*:•-:¦:-•

I've started listing all of the fun stuff I've found at auction and have for sale at "Look what we've found" on Facebook.  Go ahead and LIKE us to get the updates.  The more the merrier!  Right now I kinda feel like I'm talking to myself!

*•-:¦:-•:*''''*:•-:¦:-•

I just got notification that I can start moving my furniture into my booth space starting Monday.  There is a new antique mall opening up and I secured a booth a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately I'm going to be out of town the week of the grand opening and I was starting to get nervous that I wouldn't be able to get all of my stuff in my booth before I left town.  I certainly didn't want to leave that to my husband.  He's got plenty to do without doing my job!

*•-:¦:-•:*''''*:•-:¦:-•


Oh my goodness, I'm so happy I can start moving furniture on Monday!  I know I just said that, but I'm just jumping with JOY!  I've got a whole painting party going on downstairs in a neighbors garage, so far nothing is completed, but now that I know I can move in on Monday -- YAY!  I can get finished and know it's being moved out.


*•-:¦:-•:*''''*:•-:¦:-•

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy St. Patrick's Day!  If I were in Lansing, MI, I'd be going to the McNamara's party.  That party used to be held in their business warehouse but the many hundreds who came just spilled out into the parking lot when the building got full.  Finally they had to move it to a larger location.  I'm happy that I attended the original, though.  That was cool.

Laundry never taunts me but I enjoyed the picture of it taunting you. Funny

The Facebook page is a great idea; I look forward to seeing the updates.

What a bummer, about the roaches! I love old dressers like that, and that was a gem (minus the roaches, of course).

Your right about Jessica!
Pretty piece of furniture but I would have left it too.
I love how much fun you are having.

Where are you? I miss your photography.

Skin. Crawling.

I picture something out of a horror movie I guess - roaches just creep me out good.

Can't wait til tomorrow! And yes, I'm reading a bit to get caught up with you ahead of time. Is that strange? :)
