You'd Think I'd Stop....

Hello, My name is Mickey Jordan... and one of you should take my money away and lock it up where I CAN'T spend it!!!!!
I went down town today...  I found the little black planter first, for $0.50~!  Then as I was checking out I spotted the "Frank" record for a $1.00 ( In my defense, It will be played at As Time Goes By!), I popped into my favortie thrift store "Value Village" and found another Jello mold for $1.00 and then the thrift Gods tripped me and I found the cactus salt and pepper shakers for $0.99!

*  *  *

However I did get Crafty today making some inside jokes!  Our stage manager has had jury duty all this week and at one point she said "Dear Santa, Id like a Barbie Dream House, and a better Judicial System... Thanks!"  We I couldn't change the Judicial system... so i got busy on the Barbie dream house I made it out of card board, and painted it up. It stands about 4 inches high and 5 inches wide.
It's got 3 rooms...
Complete with Light fixtures!

It took me about 3 hours to tape and paint it, I was going to make here little furniture to go in the house but I ran out of time and had to go to rehearsal. She Loved it! haha

Tomorrow we start putting Mom and Dads place back together...  I'm going to go buy the paint for the house in the morning, and if there's any money left from that, I spotted a pair of Chinese figurines  you know the kind with the hats, that's are wearing little green coats and are carrying buckets of water...  With any luck they will be mine by 4:00 p.m.!  They are $19.00 for the Pair and I think that's pretty reasonable...

There I go... spending money again ;)

Here's the night owl, peeping in on your blog again...I must be the Night Stalker. Oh, I forgot, you're too young to remember that tv show. Cool stuff. The prices are really good, too! So..don't beat yourself up!

I don't think you should stop at all, but then I dont think I should either so I guess I'm no help at all

I'd lay odds that Mick has indeed heard of and maybe even seen Kolchak: The Night Stalker, one of the all-time great TV shoes. Now, about that Barbie Dream House. IT IS INCREDIBLE and you are just about the most creative person ever. Just whips up a dollhouse 1-2-3. Amazing.

Absolutely nothing wrong with spending $3.49 on things you love!

Cute house - how thoughtful!
