Craigslist Archives - Victoria Elizabeth Barnes


Let’s start the year out right – giant antique card catalog.

I like my New Year’s resolutions to avoid any whiff of self-evaluation. I am already the best at what I do: irritable, controlling, whimsical, hoarding, weird grammatical choices… there is no room for improvement.

As validation that I am doing life extra right, the universe has sent me yet another giant piece of furniture that I do not need… practically for free.

Thanks, universe!

This antique card catalog is the latest of my AMAZING finds… You should SEE the list of things I’ve scored on Craigslist!!

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

Salvaged wardrobe I considered for the kitchen remodel.

At this point I am waiting for THE THING.

When we started this house, I did not know about THE THING… I did not know that if you wait, giant fanciness will show up on Craigslist and enrich your life.

It makes me sad to think of all the fanciness I missed out on before I was enlightened… But all I can do is try to make up for it now.

At this point, I am a little frustrated that THE KITCHEN THING has not shown up yet, but I know it is all part of the process.

Planning our DIY kitchen remodel – salvaged and repurposed cabinet ideas.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

Kitchen design possibility of ridiculous proportion.

It took me no time at all to extrapolate an entire kitchen design from a single photo… a photo that is completely indistinct and has nothing to do with anything kitchen-related.

I am just that good.

I walked downstairs and silently handed the computer to Paul… Then I waited patiently, because the concept might not be immediately apparent if you are not blessed with my innate ability and imagination.

Also, the person who speaks first loses.

Planning our old-house kitchen remodel… I want to repurpose some unusual materials to make the design interesting.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
