Skinny Minnie Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Actually she never lived here.
Well, maybe once in my 20's, when I had hyperthyroidism and weighed as much as a seven year old- although I could out-eat a smoking linebacker, if you know what I mean.

It's just that I came across an old skirt this morning and wondered what it was doing as even part of my antiquated wardrobe.
Was I ever "small" enough to wear that?!
The only thing it might fit was a rolled up 3x5 rug!
I figured it had to have been S.M.'s.

Skinny Minnie has long since moved out. 
She hasn't been here in decades.  
I guess she just forgot some of her clothes.

New Year's Resolution List Add-on.
Go through my house and fill up Skinny Minnie bags and send them to the place so many people want to go: DISNEYLAND!

Simple Furniture Re-do

Besides finally posting a new picture of myself, I also was able to get my creative, repurposing furniture blog figured out.
(Somehow it was tied to this one and what went on one, went on the other too.)

Some of you may remember this table  I did almost 3 years ago.  Well, I finally have started a blog just for sharing my creative/tangible side.                

I started out posting a  simple re-do on a piece I picked up at the thrift store.

In conjunction with the personal unexpecteds in my life (here), I will also be transforming and sometimes repurposing items into unexpected treasures (there)!

THANK YOU for taking a look at that side of me too!!

I know this may not be a big deal to some people but it is a huge deal to me.

I finally put a real picture of myself on my profile.

I do not like pictures of myself and don't even have very many.

This is one taken with the New male in my Life when he was older.

There is only a picture of me because his parents requested it and I obliged.

Anyway, there/here it is!

Hopefully it won't change too much the perception you had imagined of me.
If it did...well, time to update it!  :)
