The Unit

     Thank you Chari at Happy to Design for another Sunday Favorites where we get to go green with our previous posts.  This is one of my favorite kinds of recycling.

Sunday Favorites


Progress report on the list:  I am slowly but surely making my way through it all.  I am not sure why I thought this was a good idea.

I loved Lavender Chick’s idea of NOT putting something on the list until you do it.  I almost collapsed laughing when I read her idea.  That is exactly the kind of  thinking I love.

Now to The Unit.

     You know and I know that a powerful demographic of society, who can single-handedly impact world events, including national defense, has not yet been discovered or utilized.

     Who are these people, unknown to the general public?
Women and men who go to flea markets, garage sales, or simply pull  onto the side of the road, if they spot something interesting.

     Their special forces-like skills include:

*the ability to size up a situation , to do a sort of junk recon, without revealing that they are

*the ability, once triggered , to move fast, regardless of age or athletic ability

*the ability to grab with lightning fast movements ( although not a particulary social skill or a skill that wins new friends, it is extremely useful nevertheless)

*the ability to stretch small amounts of money into huge pay-offs

*and finally, the ability to mobilize quickly, with multiple offers from like-minded friends and family of-

"I'll drive."

I don't know who those folks are, but I'd like to go junking with them!

I'm right now spray painting a dresser and mirror for my daughter -- heirloom white! Well actually I am at the computer, which has inspired my husband to pick up the spray can. Method to my madness....
