between work and school the amount of DIY time I have has dwindled. I have been in the process of making a Boba Fett costume, but the going is slow. As for work last night I got shit on... literally.. aww the joys of working ICU. So went to staffing got a pair of hospital scrubs and threw away the blood donor shirt I was wearing... (everyone should donate blood if they can). Other than that not too much going on around the homefront. The girl is in school too so we are busy busy bees and don't see much of each other, other than sleeping next to each other.. but alas it's all worth it in the yes?

Clean Clean Clean

SO since school starts very soon (i.e. monday) trying to make the most of my days... did the dishes today, shaved my head, and started the process of cleaning out my garage. I used to and kinda still do run a bicycle co-op outta my house. Build bikes for kids and help people out with their bikes free of charge.. haven't built one up in awhile so I am eliminating tons of stuff from the garage that I don't need.. gonna take more than a day... but it will get done can't wait to have a nice clean garage again...

Craigslist and a lazy week

So, the girl is in class it's 616am way too early.. I start school on the 23rd, last year of my RN. So to kill some early morning time did some cleaning and thought I would share some beautiful Craigslist finds that sadly I just do have room for at this time.. but, hopefully when we move and buy a house out in the Pacific Northwest I will have room for such beautiful finds... anyways enjoy!

and the best thing is all these are relatively cheap, nothing more expensive than 200 bones!

still tooooo hot

So, I figured I would just post a thrift store find.. prob one of the coolest thrift store finds that I have found in a long time.. was still in the box when I got it.. the coolest part, you can rearrange it however you like, in whatever shape and even stack all the tiles up... Sadly I don't have the box anymore.. but it did have a norwegian/scandanavian name and was apparently mass produced modular art from the 60-70's... anyways enjoy your day.

So Hot!!!

It's been 100 degrees or more almost all month and it just keeps coming, no rain just HOT! Makes it very hard to do anything crafty or not... sit in front of the TV and watch a movie or read a book.. that seems to be the only options as of late... but, I did manage to repaint my cheap-O grill to match the bench/rocker on the porch.. here's some pics...while I got back to enjoy a frosty beverage.

By the way this is one of those cheap 10-20 dollar grills. A can of Rustoleum blue and voila new grill!! Ok now back to that beverage and watching Nine.

Mid Century Score

I love craigslist!! Scored for a total of 30 bucks, that's two small benches placed by the doorway, a small wall table I placed in the office and when they are done I'll place the three stackable yellow tables outside with some plants will be very nice...

Now I will admit that in the past I have never even thought about decorating my house in a certain style, always been drawn mid century style and now I've decided or finally just grown up enough to do so.. Me and the girl will be moving to Portland, OR in a few years and it's nice to think that we will have a nice house.,,, can't wait to get everything settled and have a beautiful house of my own inside and out.

Some recent finds from a local thrift store, first off a heavy awesome brass ashtray (yea I smoke) and a mid century record cabinet (which I didn't buy, but may go back for. Just don't have room for it) By the way has anyone had any experience modifying one of these into a bookshelf/storage/credenza?

So after a week of being on call I worked all weekend which was good.. need the moolah since school is starting very very soon. Though while I slaved away in the ICU the girl was on call all weekend.

On an odd note look what I found that someone was getting rid of!! Man, they loved orange in the 70's and ya know what? I love orange so it works out well.. need to give it a good cleaning and will be the proud new owner of an orange mushroom footstool.
