 i just posted an entire entry on thriftwhore  about some junk pile finds i scored yesterday and then after publishing realized free finds were against the rules...so here ya go personal journal!


 i found all of this on the side of the road in the RAIN! so it was all FREE!!

an old blueprint holder? i'm going to use it for wrapping paper

there were 2 old desks out there that had the drawers thrown all over the place. they were in bad shape, but i found these already taken off...

and these i unscrewed. i flipped a 100 lb desk over to get them. when i want something, i want it!
i also snagged 6 of the drawers so i could remove the handles. it was a vintage desk.

i also found TEN unopened curtain rods from pottery barn. i think they were donations to a church that got discarded for some reason!
along with that i found a cool table top base and brand new table top!

the solid table top i might donate, but the frame thing reminds me of the dharma initiative logo and it might need to be painted a bright color and hung on my wall...

and the most AMAZING free find ever that made me come back to the pile with a truck...

a 6ft tall antique frame! you can tell it held a canvas oil painting. i couldn't believe my eyes.
(it was by my mom's church. the nun gave us the go ahead)

i know nobody likes a "woe is me" person, but for the 1 or 2 people who read my journal, please be honest with me and tell me why my sense of decoration is so off. here is my submission to the ohdeedoh contest that didn't even get accepted:

i get that the walls arent bright pink or tourquoise and that its not covered in ikea curtains, but i honestly thought that it was a little better than these entries...

lee and i are leaving thursday for virginia. we are going to hang out with the guys in his band and see daughtry in concert. saturday we are going to get tattoos. i changed my mind on what i really wanted because i cant express what i want exactly and the artist, although good, doesn't have much of an imagination. i'm not 100% happy with what he did last time because i wanted him to change the picture i gave him up a bit and he really didnt...so i'm going with my original plan and adding mountains to my hell scene. its kinda like i'm covering my back from heaven to hell if that makes sense. here is a collage of my general idea...

1 is what i want in the sense that it climbs up. 2 is NEAT and i would love to have the very obvious watercolor style, but it would have to be less extreme to match my "hell" scene i already have. 3 has more of the darkness rough style i want to match what i have...the rest is just more of the same....picking designs is STRESSFUL!

Brewer has been awake since 3am. His schedule has been all kinds of
fucked up because of our A shenanigans! Ugh! I had a 9:00
dental appointment that I called and cancelled already cause I knew we
would both be grumpy!

Yesterday was a "neat" day starting from dinner on...we have hawks
again this year and they have been VERY active the past few days. I
wanna say there are 4 and 2 of them are babies. Its almost as if they
are being taught to fly or maybe hunt? Yesterday as Lee was grilling
burgers we could hear them squawking like mad and flying from tree to
After dinner we took brewer to riverfront park in our 'hood. Its where
"army wives" is filmed and today they were filming a scene. On our way
out we noticed Catherine Bell walking away from set. I'm not typically
star struck, but I must say, she is gorgeous. Much more so in person
if that's possible.
Then when we got home one of the hawks was just sitting in the grass
in front of our window. It was cool to stare at him so close. He flew
off with something in his claws. Looked like dirt, I'm guessing it was
a mouse or mole.
Theeen we noticed a possum outside! So, we watched him run around and
try to climb on a chair. He kept falling and was the cutest thing! He
was my favorite creature of the day. Sorry, Catherine!
