Spontaneous Moving

Hello luvs! I did not fall into a black hole. We have been enduring this house sale nightmare for close to a year and I couldn't take it anymore. We already owned the little home we are moving into as we were renting it out for a few years. It turned out that we are way to nice to be landlords and we always ended up with the worst of humanity as tenants, which is why we decided to move there ourselves and  sell the farm house. Neither Larry or I are teenagers anymore (even though we act and feel like it most of the time) and the stairs and upkeep were getting too much for us old buggers. So...we up and moved! I am slowly unpacking all my "stuff" that I had stored in the storage garage at our "new" home and am finally getting a little settled. Number 3 son hooked up my computer in a nifty little set up and I can finally post again.

I did take time amidst all this to visit with my little friend Hope of "Pink Champagne". She wanted to show me her new place of employment. She is working at the Atomic Warehouse in Harrisburg, Pa. Since I only work about 10 minutes from there, I met her after work for a tour and some East Indian cuisine.

My camera is dying so the pictures are courtesy of Hope. I was hoping I didn't have to by a new camera so soon, but it looks as though it is a goner.

Sweater retail clearance
skirt is part of a suit from Goodwill for $6
red fishnet tights .99 from Gabriele Brothers
Fur collar $6 from the Dillsburg Charity Shop
The shoes were gifted from the gracious Mary

With her bad hip she can no longer wear them and she said she knew I would appreciate them...and I do!

I played Vanna White at the radio counter. Do check out the Atomic Warehouse website, he has all sorts of cool goodies. Unfortunately he does not have his clothing posted as of yet. The store was affected by all the flooding this year and they are just now getting the goods back on the main floor. After we are all settled in, I plan on going back for some household items.

I have a ton of blog reading to catch up on and I will manage to get postings done somehow, even with a wonky camera. When our house is sold, I plan on a trip to the U.K. and will be asking you Englishers the best (and cheapest) places to stay and the best flea marketing destinations.

Later my friends.
