Post 602: She May Have Seen Better Days

Doll
Okay, so I picked this out of the dumpster in my building. It was on top though, so it’s perfectly clean. It looks like someone went to a lot of trouble to knit a dress around a pillow for this doll. So it’s sort of a doll/pillow combo. Probably shouldn’t end up in a landfill. Come and get me.

Post 593: How is This a Thing?

Hula Exercise Chair

post 593 chair

Still functional. Seat and back rest are worn.

Oh, wait. No, I really wish I hadn’t seen that.

Love my local Craigslist.

Pretending to be happy and healthy piggies for a sitting concern. Continue reading

Post 567: Long Ago and Faraday

Now get that contraption off my lawn! Continue reading
