"JuNk DrAwer FriDAy!" No.12


Let the Randomness Begin:

A Piece of Pretty:
When I spied this in a stationary store, of all places, it just made me happy.
It’s a tiny, over the shoulder purse–perfect for an evening out when all you need is a credit card, lipgloss and your cell phone:))
Check out the stripes on the red fabric:))
It’s now hanging out in my closet….have no idea how that happened!
I’m thinkin’ it could just be the world’s smallest art supply bag which would of course then make it a tax deduction.  Jus’ sayin’;))
The company is Goody Goody and you can look at their colorful goodies by clicking here:)) You may just find your own “art supplies” bag;))
Earth to Dreama:
Hillbillies, of which I am one, go barefooted a lot.  Now science is finally catching up with the hill people and agreeing that it’s a good thing.
Of course they had to go and rename it to make it sound fancier:)


According to studies, as little as 20 minutes a day of “connecting” to the earth can do wonders (even Dr. Oz agrees)!
Just so you know, I am earthing as I type this.  To read more, click here:)

It All Started with a Paper Clip:
It never ceases to delight me as to what can happen when we allow our mind to think outside the norm of what is possible:))

If video doesn’t appear, click here:))

Read to Me Baby:
What if you found a great article online–and what if you saved the article thinking you would get around to reading it later—and what if later never came?  Well, if you had this little guy (SoundGecko) he would read it to you.


For Free!
Here’s one of my last posts, as read by the Gecko.  He didn’t pronounce my name correctly, but hey…he’s a Gecko.  And a free one at that:))
Click Here to Listen!
If you click here you will see how it works.  You put in the url of the article you are wanting to read and it will turn it into a MP3, email it to you and you can then listen to it on your computer, cell phone, iPad, etc.  Sometimes I feel like I am one of the Jetson’s…..as in George with daughter Judy and boy Elroy….
*Thanks to Pamela at Big Brand Systems for the tip!

Fat Feelings:
Sums up nicely my feelings on fat-free foods….

If video does not appear, just click here:)
And there you have it.  A story reading gecko, how to get rich from your paper clips, diet tips from a dog,  purses full of posies and last but not least— barefoot and pregnant…with possibilities;))  That should keep you off the streets and out of trouble for at least…er….20 minutes or so.  After that you’re on your own…

I am flying out Saturday and will arrive on Sunday in Tuscany.  Let the games begin:))
As I have been warning you, I will be posting lots of photos—and giving away my watercolor postcards, one each day.

All you have to do to get your name in the old capppello is leave a comment on this blog for each day’s drawing.

P.S.S. Leaving a comment just got a whole lot easier:)))  I have eliminated the step that requires you to squint your eyes and type in some indecipherable code to prove that you are not a robot.  Eddie and I both know you are not a robot:)))

P.S.S.S.  I know, enough with the PS’s:))  Just do me and Ed a favor and share today’s post with someone who needs a fun spot in their day:)) Big Hugs from us both!

    Hi Dreama – Forgive me, as this is going to have to be a super-quickie from me (I’m painting and plaque-ing like a crazed woman here, getting ready for a local gallery that is interested in some of my mandalas and kitchen plaques – yaaayy! – but haven’t had time to even click on any of the links you provided in this great Junk Drawer Friday post…yet), but I just wanted to wish you a pleasant and safe journey and a wonderful, brilliant time in my beloved Italia. As they’d say there, buon viaggio, and as we’d say here, slan abhaile. Lots of love, JuneReplyCancel

      Sherry–actually you can use FB:)) When you click on the comment link, scroll upwards and you will see you can use it with your FB id. That’s the best I can do;))

      And yes—obviously the dogs have figured out the real scoop on the low fat foods;)))ReplyCancel
