"We have less than 24 hours to take action to protect our stations.

Tomorrow, the House Appropriations Committee and the House Budget Committee will vote on legislation that could affect public media funding."

Back some great causes

In case you have not seen this I ask that you go take a look. They don't have that many days to raise the rest of the funds to make the movie. Great perks for locals donating too.
My Summer as a Goth. After posting this to the Halloween blog several people joined and donated so if you read here too thank you so much! This film could pump some dollars in to our local economy and I really have a good feeling about the production.

Another local project that is so close to being funded is Street Books: A Bicycle-Powered Library for People Outside. they only need $700 more to fund the project with 17 days to go.

Yeah, I know times are tough but this is one of those if you tell 2 friends and they give $5 or $10 it could really make a difference. The arts are taking a big hit in funding and I love that kickstarter is a way to help fund projects.

LiveJournal Woes

I clicked on my LJ link and got some russian guys page. This is getting old fast. Trying to find friends with LJ and Dreamwidth accounts to add. Rolling around on the floor with kittens is our nightly routine. Fern loves to ride in the laundry basket. Ivy loves to play with a little plastic frog that we slide along a long sheet of craft paper. Tonight were all sprawled on the bedroom floor watching Oddities on TV. :o )

Changing the world


One Peace at a Time is a movie you have to see. Available on Netflix. Individuals and organizations making a difference in the world. From this movie I found this clever little game at Freerice.com that donates 10 grains of rice for each answer you get right.

Looking to trade a pattern

1877 Plain & Striped Zephyr Wool Dress
34 Bust - 20 Waist
This a new uncut Ageless Pattern pattern. I realized after purchasing it that the 1870s are not my style. My heart and big bustle are firmly planted in the 1880s. Can't find my Folkwear 253 Bathing Costume Pattern. Anyone have it and want to trade? This is a public entry so feel free to share if you think someone might be interested.

Its a long shot..need help finding a toy


This is the version I'm looking for of Hungry Hungry Hippos. Made by Milton Bradley its one solid piece.


This is the one readily available made by Hasbro that is a piece of junk in a small box. You have to assemble the game. It has bad reviews.
The annoying thing is some stores use the MB image. So far only FAO Shwartz in NY has it in stock. Used older versions on ebay are going for a pretty penny.
So...if you happen to be out and about and see the MB version the 4 year old great nephew wants it VERY VERY much. I'll pay you plus express shipping.

Classic Orange and Black


I have had some trouble buying the paper lanterns but Target now has them back in stock on the web site. The paper fans I ordered from partycity.com. They arrived today and they are gorgeous. Both items area made by Amscan and a search will bring up other suppliers. Filling my vaulted ceiling with paper lanterns this year.

Time is almost up

My apologies for no updates. The move is in progress and I have limited internet access for the next 2 weeks. So many people have asked if we could extend the closing date until after the 1st. More precisely until after pay day! Inventory is SO low I'm not sure there will be much left in another week but I'll keep filling orders until the 6th. Thank you.
