2221  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: piano? on: April 01, 2008 08:45:41 AM
How about contacting the music department at whatever school/college is near you? They might know who you'd contact in your area.Someone has to maintain the school pianos, or maybe one of the teachers is knowledgeable about old pianos. If you could get someone to come out and take a look at it, that would be perfect. Word to the wise-you may not want to sell it to the person doing the appraising, or at least let them know you're getting 2 opinions(no matter if you really are or not). Most are honest, but it's not unheard of for someone unscrupulous to tell you it's junk, offer to take it off your hands, and resell for a tidy bit.
Even if it is just worth a few hundred, like you said,that's a lot of craft supplies! Good luck.

A sister of mine fancies herself a gourmet-so I had to get the 99 cent New Joys of Jello cookbook when I saw it at Goodwill. It'll be part of her birthday this summer.  Jellied salad Nicoise(jello and tuna,yum),Antipasto salad(jello and salami),Barbecue salad(I'm getting ill), jellied gazpacho, and let's not forget the creamy blue cheese salad! Copyright 1973.
That being said, I love your magnets! But where did you find the tiny jello molds? Are they vintage, or can you still buy them? I just bought my first jug of resin, and I'd love to try my hand at your inspired idea. Anyway, most adorable kitchy magnets-thanks for posting!

I'm so excited! The sooner the better-my brain is going to explode if I keep getting crafty ideas for this!
Any neurosurgeons in the house?

Thanks for posting the atom pattern! I'm going to try it on a scrap piece later and make sure I've got it right. I am so going thrifting thursday.

oooh, potholders! I've thought about buying plain dishtowels to embroider/applique on. But I can't decide between atoms,robots,or spaceships. Grin Decisions,decisions. I'd love to see the embroidery info.Thanks again for sharing!

I like your hanger covers.Very pretty! And clothes won't slip off them as easily.This may be odd, but looking at the crochet made me think of a jump rope.Plarn would make a good jump rope,wouldn't it?
Tip for anyone who shops at kmart,ect and buys clothes on plastic hangers. The cashier takes them off the hangers, and tosses them in a bin under the register. Some hangers will go back to the clothing dept.dressing area, to be used for returned items. The majority get thrown in the dumpster every day. I used to work for a big box store several years ago.They didn't recycle them-I have no idea if things have changed now, but it would suprise me if they do. So ask if you can have some. It's a tremendous waste.If you like plastic hangers, better to save some from the landfill than buy new ones. I do try to stay out of those stores as much as possible.These won't look as spiffy as RecycleCindy's hangers, unfortunately, but they'll do the job. I can't crochet, but if I did, I'd make hers!

Thank you, AlternaWidget, for posting those cool pics. Man, I need an atomic afghan! If only I could crochet....
Okay, added to my thrift store list-keep eyes open for knitted/crocheted afghan, so I can embroider atoms on it. And I love the couch/daybed with the built in drawers. Can't have too much space for craft supplies!

Wow-I love the bag, and the doll,and I am blown away by the detail on the cuff. That's amazing!

However, I must cringe at the West Side Story/R+J book!  That's the same one we had to read in 9th grade!  Sad
Okay,here's a better comparison for you-Gilligan's Island and the tempest-"the weather started getting rough,the tiny ship was tossed..."Any better?
Anybody here remember when they really did a musical version of Shakespeare on Gilligan? I can still sing that!

I love your bangles,and your steampunk pieces, and,well, all of them!

I think it's been decided-while Sweets4ever is the supreme high priestess of all things melted, Ammasmama is the Queen of Resin.
All hail!
