REALLY??!!


Ed and I have decided to part with the enormous collection of Lava Lamps in our home (all are his).  Seriously, who in their right mind owns five lava lamps??  I can see one or two...but five?!!  We will keep one, but the rest must say adieu.  I love Ed but his taste in lamps is weird.  He has a skull head with a light inside it, as well as a large plastic pile of bones and skulls that light up.  For some reason, he keeps them out year round, not just on Halloween...which I find odd.


He also has not one, but two of those plasma ball lights...you know, those lights that have plasma beams and when you touch the ball, the beams move towards your hand.  One of the plasma balls is held by a golden Buddha (where the hell does he find this stuff??).  

Anyway, I think both of us are struggling to let go of things, but we are both trying to make an effort.  Both of us are looking to create a more minimalist look in our home.  Next up will most likely be the souvenir brown glass mug collection in the kitchen...(Also Ed's).  Looking at these make me feel like I'm back in my grandmother's house.  


Getting rid of stuff has been liberating, but I must say that I almost cried when I had to say goodbye to these guys....

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!

Ha! I've owned these mechanical pets for years, but as of late, they have been stuck in a closet getting dusty. Now they are on the way to their new home in California. I'm excited for these little guys, but I will miss them terribly. The little black dog had a name tag that said Tessa. Only the brown dog worked....Tessa and tne monkey were broken.

Out with the old, in with new. Such is life.

I got an email over the weekend, from the person who purchased the mechanical animals...apparently they were thrilled! Makes me happy that they have a nice new home! You would think that these guys were living creatures the way I carry on about them.
