same same, but different

Well, it happened again... at Back-to-school night, no less.
Here's an earlier post about another time this happened to us...

I have a lot to blog about, but haven't had the time or the internet access to do so. I've been at the new apartment for almost 2 weeks and have been busily aquiring furniture and appliances. Most of the stuff I've found has been from Asiaxpat, which, I have to say, is a great place to look for deals. It's a site that allows you to place free ads for almost anything that you want to buy or sell. So far I've bought a chest of drawers, a sofa, an arm chair, some sofa cushions, a TV, DVD player, and will get a wardrobe sometime this weekend. As I said, there are a lot of deals, but boy, all the address-hunting and picking up has been exhausting. I'll be glad when I'm done... but I think I'll definitely keep tabs on what's available for a while. I have some interesting stories about my pick-ups that I hope to share soon. Stay tuned.

another cozy...

... but surprise! It's not around a coffee cup! Or even a tea pot. Instead, it's around... a gas station. Pretty weird. And amazing. Note the gas pump cozies. I love the attention to detail! It's the work of artist Jennifer Marsh. I saw this post just now on the Craftzine blog, and though there's a lot of blog-worthy stuff going on for me personally right now (school starts tomorrow, I'm about to move into a new apartment, the Olympics are in full swing, the Friendlies are literally EVERYWHERE!), I'm choosing to blog about a ginormous cozy. Go figure.

And I haven't forgotten that I promised a couple more UK posts... I need to make a "to do" list.
