I was tagged by Ritva of Finland a while back to name six random things. Funny blogworld!

1. My favorite color is yellow and this is my favorite yellow jumpsuit.

2. I need to pursue my archivist and librarian tendencies—I have a weakness for paper goods.

3. I swear like a sailor and miss the sea.

4. I've been misplaced>> I should have been born Scandinavian.

5. I'm related to Pocahontas.

6. I don't like chocolate and coffee but I enjoy teaparties.

So I tag ANDY of Reference Library come on play--kinda odd for your blog, but...?
Andy, here are tag rules: Link to the person who tagged you. Post the rules on your blog. Write 6 random things about yourself. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.

Deadlines prompt productivity. Construction on my upstairs begins on Monday so I'm sorting and tossing and did a little scanning. During the process, I found a minipicture of my design instructor——George LaRou. Biggest crush ever !! That's him on the bottom right.

curious goods

Tim's mum is visiting from Wales, therefore we had a mini cleaning frenzy which entailed looking through boxes of stuff---found some good old photos as well as my pulled and babyteeth.
Can't recall the whereabouts of happy tooth photo, but I believe Curious Goods signfront is from Superior, WI (?) and the Dinosaur is from SD--Walldrug.
