This weekend I finally managed to get the Christmas tree up and decorated. We don't really use any sentimental type ornaments... the tree is mostly covered with various glass and plastic vintage ones I've picked up here and there at thrift stores mixed with a few "nicer" ones kept up high out of cats reach. Standing back, it looks nice, but I realized I feel like it's missing that homemade touch. When I was a kid my mom made the majority of our tree trimmings: crocheted snowflakes, a red and white garland and shapes made of cookies coated to last year after year. The Creature Comforts blog has posted a great alternative to these cookies which I remember had a strange and distinct smell- use Fimo clay! Now I know what I'll be up to this weekend.

I love wood + metal. $150
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/fuo/2092025575.html




Giant curved 1960's couch. But it's white. I can't tell if the discoloration in the photos is actually on the couch...only $150 though
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/fuo/2093646541.html



Personally, I think these would look great with the frame painted black. $395 for the pair
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/fuo/2092238255.html

that's a bit sad- but a score for you?

"couple boxes of old photos. They look like they are from the prairie days forward. There are some gun toters, old timers, etc. The photos are actually very cool, I just have no use for them...I contacted a descendant of the owner of the photos (who has passed) and asked if they wanted them. After several no shows and unreturned phone calls, I just want them out of my garage."
