Elvis Didn’t Leave The Building, Elvis Went to Goodwill!

Why hello there, you hunk of burning love. Are you feeling shy today?


No reason to hide. No one’s going to hurt you.

There now, that wasn’t so bad, was it? I think I saw a pair of blue suede shoes over by all the used sneakers.

All I can focus on is the face-on-the-side-of-the-toaster image up on the wall. Like toasters at Goodwill come with people inside of them or something.

I took extra care to include the toaster poster, so it’ nice to know ya’ll appreciate my blogging efforts. 😉

that toaster picture is kind of creeping me out.

That’s what I was thinking too!

(1) Does Elvis think that the Goodwill is the Heartbreak Hotel, or the Jailhouse Rock?

(2) On another matter: I found a Marimekko tote bag (the twin of the one you used to make the lampshade, I believe; it has a breast cancer awareness doodad on the zipper pull) at my local Salvation Army last week. Slight grime on bottom, but most of this came out with a laundering. If you want it for another craft project, email me with your street address, and it’s yours. My pleasure.

Take the Marimekko bag! You can have a matching pair of shades!

I come for the inspiration and stay for the laughs. You never disappoint, Katy!

Oh, this had me in stitches!

Thank you so much, Katy, I sorely needed a laugh today and you had the grace to provide it.

Merci beaucoup !! 🙂

With big hugs from France,

It’s important that everyone understand how very little I take myself seriously.

Too funny….and the toaster poster is kind of surreal.

Maybe the toaster is posessed, like the sweater.

argh! I really really want that basket sitting on the chair! If only I lived in your area…

Speaking of blue suede shoes, you should see the Italian (so I’m told) pair I got at a yard sale last fall…for $2.00!! Just started a new job, and they’re perfect for it– comfortable and fun. Worth more than every penny!
