Spraypaint Is Good For The Soul

I'm totally stoked about finding out about ReStore for Habitate for Humanity. It is a place where you can donate your WORKING appliances, lighting fixtures, etc. and it is open to the public if you want to buy anything. And everything is guaranteed to work. Need a door?

Even a new bathtub?

And best of all, any money spent goes directly to Habitat.

Wow! What a great place! Can't wait to see the finished product.
Oh, and I love the wax candies. Disgusting and delicious in at the same time. What more could a kid want?
