I need to decide on what I want to hang on the pegs, there's a small shelf too which I just put a tealight on for now. And here's a look at it with the foyer table.I've gone from liking white furniture to black furniture, oh well! LOL....I'm looking forward to watching "So You Think You Can Dance" this evening....I hope you all have a lovely day!

~ Picture Trail, New Mirror, and Craigslist ~
Well here is it Wednesday again, time flies whether you're having fun or not! LOL....one thing I have to report is that I updated my Picture Trail with pictures I've recently taken around my home of the displays I change out every season, the link is off to the right in the sidebar. I do have something new to show you that is pretty exciting for me because I have wanted it for quite some time now....it's a mirror for over my foyer table....a guy on ebay makes and sells them and I've had his link saved all this time. I had a Thomas Kinkade print there which I just sold on Craigslist, a nice young couple came and bought it for her Mom. Speaking of Craigslist, it is awful how many scammers are out there, I recently posted a few things for sale on it and you wouldn't believe how many emails I got from scammers! I had to put a message in my posts to tell scammers not to bother because I was onto their tricks! If you ever want to sell something on there, whatever you do, don't give anyone your address or phone number, offer to meet them in a public place and if it's something you can't bring with you in your car, let them follow you back to your place at that point because there are alot of people who don't even live in the U.S. who are looking for a U.S. address and/or phone number to sell or use in an unlawful way. Oh and did you know that there are counterfeit money orders and cashiers checks now?....that is a huge scam!....only accept cash! One of the biggest scams is out of area people will email you and tell you they want to purchase your item and that they will mail or wire you a bank draft aka a cashiers check or certified check and that as soon as you deposit it into your bank or cash it, they will have someone come and pick up the item from you....the thing is....the bank draft is counterfeit and not even your bank will know it!!....weeks later, after your item is gone, the bank doesn't get the funds and they will treat it like a bad check with all the fees attached as well!....can you imagine how horrible that would be especially for a high dollar item? Bottom line is only deal with local people who you can meet in person and pay you with cash and first meet them in a public place!....and even then you have to be very careful! Ok now I can show you my mirror.
