    Detail of the train on the #ReemAcra. Yeah, it's dirty but who cares. So, for all my brides-to-be, #cosplayers, mixed media artists or #collectors like myself, listen up! The 4th Thursday of every month all orange tagged wedding gowns at #Goodwill are one dollar. For my local Arizona gals, it's at Recker and Main in #Mesa. It's a great place to get frilly fabric at rock bottom prices. Good for fabric journals and other projects. #thriftstorescore

I’m Out of Surgery!

This is Chuck, posting a little update for Nicole. Chuck is writing this for me, as I am presently hopped up on synthetic morphine being delivered by a “Patient Self Administration” device (I get to press a purty green button, and everything feels grrrrrrrrreat!)…

The surgery went well, and I’ve been admitted to the hospital […]
