it was a good weekend

thrift store finds NaBloPoWhat? OH, right. That thing I said I was going to do back in February and totally forgot about. Oops!

I’m getting a late start, but here’s a list for your reading pleasure, entitled “Last Saturday”:

  • Farking snow
  • Farking snow!!
  • Danielle!
  • Portland
  • Food
  • More food
  • platterEven more food
  • OMG stuffed
  • Zzzzzzzzzzz

That pretty much sums it up! Alas, the Etsy Meet-up was canceled due to the weather (see the part about “farking snow”), but Danielle and I braved the storm and went to Portland anyway.

On Friday I went thrift shopping with Susan, and found lots of goodies:

  • Brother Charger 651 sewing machine in robin’s egg blue, $5
  • 2 funky serving platters with a neat mod design, $11
  • Yet another clock to add to my growing collection, $3

I was especially pleased with the sewing machine, as I’ve been looking for one to use as a photo prop for a long time (and I couldn’t argue with that price!). This one is exactly what I wanted. It doesn’t seem to work, though, so I may have it serviced at some point in the future. It would be nice to have a functional sewing machine that I could practice with!


  1. I actually read about the NaBloPoMo on your blog so I’m doing it on mine in an attempt to stop being a total slacker, haha. Thanks for the idea. Maybe I’ll actually do NaNoWriMo this year (and finish, that is).

    Cool sewing machine! Don’t forget that I have a neat old rocking horse you can borrow if you ever want to.

  2. I could almost swear I had plates like those… maybe it was just similar in color, though. I have fond memories of thrift store shopping… no more tho. No time to browse anymore. I need instant satisfaction and delivery to my front door. Shameless!

  3. sweeeet machine! Nice. Looking forward to the pics that come about from this awesome prop. Yeah, you should get that thing working! It’s wicked cool. FIVE BUCKS! Way to shop!
