A little bit of fun

This is the nature scene painted on the right side of my newest little house.....
 
 
and on the other side of the house is this lovely tree in bloom......
 
 
 
My newest little house is an English Amersham from the 1930-40s.
Here is the front door and the red flowers painted there....
 
 
and the greenery around the garage....
 
 
 But this post isn't about this new little house...
the only connection to this little house is that i found it on eBay....
as I have all but 2 of my little houses. 
I am addicted to surfing eBay. I can't say it is cheap entertainment
because I end up buying too many things...99% of which are doll house related.
One thing that does entertain me, and IS free on ebay, is discovering the eBay ID 
that other members have given themselves. And that is what this post is about.
Probably because my eBay ID is so dorky, I started noticing others and it made me wonder why I picked the one I did. But I know why, my son was visiting and insisted that I sign up for eBay that very day....little did he know what he would be starting! 
So this is just a little bit of fun, and if you find your eBay ID listed here,
please know that seeing it made me smile!
 
....and listed in the order that I discovered them......

  1. I've seen My Dog Has A Big Head before. I couldn't help but laugh the first time I saw it. The others are all new to me. It's not as much fun now that eBay disguises the bidders' names and it's only the sellers that you can see. My name on eBay is HopefulBid. I guess that says it all. I usually bid and then leave so I'm not tempted to bid any higher.

    I think it was up in Canton, Texas at the big monthly flea market that I saw a booth called "Dead People's Stuff." I thought that was kind of cute.

    1. Tulsaarchitect! Before IDs were secret code, we used to bid against each other all the time!!! No matter which one of us won, items always went to a good home!
