Funky Town by Lipps Inc. has been my theme song lately. This is not a good funk, mind you- It's a weird place I go to a few times a year. What triggers my trips to Funky Town? I wish I knew. What I do know is that when I'm in a funk I'm way less productive- you could even say lazy, I second guess myself, I think a lot and do a little, I'm impatient, crabby and I eat more chocolate and watch more T.V. It seems as a retired teacher that each summer I do go through a bit of a self reflection/evaluation. August for a teacher is like January 1st is for everyone else. You spend the summer evaluating the school year, adding new curriculum, tweaking old curriculum and setting new goals for your class. When working I would start the school year feeling renewed, excited and ready to conquer the World. The only catch, now that I'm retired, is I can't take an entire summer to get renewed. I have a vintage market show I'm participating in that's only 2 weeks away and I have zero merchandise, my space at Qcumberz is near empty and my blogging has been sparse lately. So I thought I'd put it out there on My Dear Trash... Have you ever been to Funky Town? Like the lyrics say, "Gotta move on, gotta move on..." How do you "move on" You've got my full attention and I'd love to hear your suggestions. Love, Kelly.

What is My Dear Trash?
What can you really do with other people's trash? My Dear Trash is not just a view of what can be found while shopping thrift stores and garage sales, but also finding value in things other's throw away. I'm Laura Lofgreen and I have combined my love of shopping trash with my love for writing. Follow me as I refurbish old dumpster-worthy furniture, decorate and re-decorate my home and go down that long, bumpy, sometimes lonely road to hopefully (someday, begging, pleading and continually editing) publishing my young adult novels!
