things you can really only find on the internet

Does everyone with younger children know about these beautiful games?
No first person shooters, no monsters, no blood spilling.
Lovely graphics, quiet music, simple challenges.


I'm thinking neck kerchiefs are difficult to find in retail establishments.
Is that Katie Holmes?
Anyway - if you needed a neck kerchief for those re-enactments you attend, or, say, that weekend at the cabin with no heat, or for that funny game you and your husband play wherein you are a Puritan, this is the place to go.

For the ultimate in laziness (an area in which I excel) there is shopping, of course, and recipe research.
How lazy am I that I find it easier to click through recipe after recipe rather than scour our cookbooks?


Lately I seem to be fascinated by sandwiches...

This one is a blt with fried egg and I must remember to try it -

I love Japanese clothing sites.
I do sometimes wonder if seeing these garments in person would diminish their desirability.

I'm pretty sure the internet is the only place to purchase hand made accessories for your Blythe dolls. Etsy is a fun place to browse.

Looking for fair trade, handmade baskets from around the world?


Search here.
I have no idea where to begin to look for them without the internet...

Look -

I could take a trip to see it, but only from the ground.

stop talking

I love these.
If I do see them in real life, I may buy them.

There is no power at our house.
Youngest and I are at the library.
I am bored and frustrated.

There is a 10,000 Villages store here in my town. It's pretty interesting, but

Hmm, those games are intriguing.

Keep out of the storm. Batten down the hatches, and locate all candles and matches. I remember reading by candlelight as a little girl during the big east coast blackout. I still remember how cozy it was.

Paula : They probably use yak dung in the baskets.

But, see? BETTER on the internet. It never smells on the internet.

tut-tut : the boys were pretty pleased with flashlights and candles.

I had cards that said "You are Cordially Invited to Go Fuck Yourself" as a Statement when I was going through my Dark, Mean Period after my first dee-vorce.
Now that I'm all mature and grown up and everything, I am tempted to get the Stop Talking cards. Hmmm, there is a bird card in there...
Thanks for the Orisinal link. I did not know about it.

Eyeglasses for dolls? So they can see better?

Send the rain this way. We need it.

WHERE is that maze? I must go there. I must must must go.

We have a 10000 villages store here. It's nice and filled with pretty presents.

I just happened by....

The neck kerchief cracked me up for some reason - I guess I always wondered where a a person would buy one.

I'll be back.

Hope your power is back on. Yuck.

I thought the Amish didn't use modern technology. Wouldn't they be the target market for the neck kerchiefs?

Someone needs to re-think their distribution strategy...

If you are hungry that BLT with egg looks SO GOOD that you could practically munch the computer screen. Note to self - must show it to son to inspire attempts at cooking.

The BELT sandwich looks verrrrry good.

The corn maze thing? Creepy homage and just imagining myself lost in it makes me squirmy.

And those cards? I fear you would be sliding one across the table to me.
