We were strolling the grounds of the Real Goods Solar Living Institute located in Hopland, CA this afternoon and eventually wandered into the gift shop. There are loads of amazing things and among them – a working tin can robot!
Plarn (plastic yarn) is made from plastic grocery bags cut into strips then crocheted to create virtually anything – In this case we’re using a grocery bag to create … a grocery bag.
My plan is to blow all my Swagbucks on Amazon gift cards and post those cards to my Amazon account. Then I’ll order all my Christmas gift from Amazon.com and Viola! – Free Christmas!
Another bonus is that while everyone else isrushing around in the rain looking for a parking space, I’ll be doing all my Christmas shopping online… in my PJs… while drinking coffee in my kitchen. All Is Calm.
Sock + Empty Water Bottle = Best Puppy Toy Ever!
Just insert bottle into sock – tie a knot and it’s on like donkey kong.
I love getting Christmas cards – I love it so much I want to marry it.
I hate to shop, but…
? if you could find all manner of stuff you needed – everything from the brand name classic to the completely funky, and it was all arranged by item and color, in an immaculately clean shop and every time you bought something it helped people, you’d have to do it, right?
This my friends is the Goodwill store in Santa Rosa.
