Raspberry Rascal

Fricken Furniture !#$%?

The hubbub is not about the f-bomb in my world. (See the video here.)

The price was $400 for the entire set. The seller was from Oakdale, MN.

And no--I did not buy it. But was highly amused by it.

Even priced at a $1.95, I couldn't pull the trigger.

A quick sneaky photo in the store, and I'm good to go.

Fair Finds

Judy's first of course.

Sally's Hot Man

edited down became this:
The eyes are speakers (the backs of them are big magnets). The nose is a cable from Mike's camper. "That camper had every accessory on it from the Kmart automotive aisle!".

Sue's Bookshelves

Sue finished her basement a few years ago. Her husband created these built-in bookshelves using the area between the studs. Trim was added to cover the 2x4s and then it was painted. Deeper books in the bottom row steal room from the area behind the shelves.
