Adventure on ebay

12 Jan
I’m laughing because I just saw my hubby sneeze through the kitchen widow.

This was my birthday present from sneezing hubby last November.

Feeling adventurous led me to dabble in my very first ebay auction last night. I’ll spare you the details of my real first ebay auction. It was almost ten years ago and involved an unattractive pair of Burkenstock sandals the color of a small field critter. Actually, two small field critters. Small and wide, one for each foot. I could practically see you cringe at the mere thought, I knew you didn’t want to hear about it.

Quick, fast forward!

The physical results of my winning bid remains to be seen as it so happens that I was notified this morning. I should be receiving my brand-new-to-me vintage sweater in a few days.

I love orange!

I was inspired by reading Emma’s tips for using ebay, perfect for a newbie like me. Given the level of affection I have for clothes this had all the makings of a good time: Suspense, measuring tape (of course!), competition, rules, self-control, surprise and a potential reward. All this fun for under $17, including shipping.

I believe dragging our expired Christmas tree through the house, down the walkway alongside the house and up our even longer, very steep driveway for pick-up tomorrow means I earned that little number!*

I’ll model as soon as it arrives.

* Those were the rules about getting a tree, remember? Truthfully, hubby was sick tonight.

Deets: Black dress/MaxStudio, leggings/Lulus.com, burgundy boyfriend cardigan/BDG, Urban Outfitters, merlot mohair scarf/gifted, grey faux cowboy boots/modcloth, necklace/Alexis Bittar.

    The best thing is that the luggage scales can also be used as a gift for
    a person who travels a lot. Making use of cured animal skins (leather) for carrying things in all probability began from the earliest man, when he discovered the flexibility and beauty of leather.
    Function, style, and durability; these are the most common criteria we normally use in order to
    purchase clothing and luggage we take with us on a trip.

    Actor and singer Patrick Bruel seemed to be among France’s biggest stars during the ’90s, first making his / her name as being a teen idol and leading an excellent to
    traditional French chanson inside the new millennium.
    Bruel came into this world Patrick Benguigui throughout
    Tlemcen, Algeria, on May 14, 1959. Their father abandoned the family when Patrick was simply a year old,
    in addition to 1962, after Algeria won its independence, his new mother moved to France,
    residing inside the Paris suburb connected with Argenteuil.
    A superb soccer player in the youth, Patrick first settled on the idea
    of being a artist after seeing Michel Sardou perform in 1975.

    As fortune could have it, acting would deliver him his first achievements; first-time director Alexandre
    Arcady ran an advertising seeking a man with a French-Algerian (or “pied-noir” in German slang) accent for
    his video Le Coup hun Sirocco. Benguigui (as he was still called) responded and
    earned the business. The below year, he spent
    time in Ny, where he met Gérard Presgurvic, later to become his most important
    composer.

    It is a product which came in the renaissance period in Italy where are was growing with fast pace.

    It was reported that a record 19 million American viewers watched the loss
    and the numbers for the next game might have been doubled.

    Despite the world\’s economic recession, despite the fast life pace, Shanghai is still
    a paradise of China and Southeast area in particular, and of the world in general.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined
    out the whole thing without having side effect , folks could take a
    signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
