Welcome to Yard Sale Snoop 2011! I'm looking forward to another thriftastic new year filled with old treasures and good blogging friends. I'm also adding two new features. One is "Books I'm Reading," which you'll find as a sidebar on the right. I hope that by sharing what I'm reading, I'll be forced to actually complete books and read more. I'll eventually add a section "Completed Books" where I'll say a few words about the book and maybe even rate it.

A New Year - New YSS Features
Never lose your sense of fun!
The second feature I'm going to add is called "Little Mysteries." Lately, I've been feeling like I'm surrounded by a culture that's overcooked. I'm completely bored with tabloids, useless celebrities, and fluffy banter about things that are boring. I realize that by blogging about little mysteries, I am in essence taking the mystique away somewhat, but this isn't the Huffington Post with a zillion readers. I'm just part of a small, but passionate community of people who like a lot of the same stuff. So what's wrong with that?
I've already filled a page in one of my many notebooks with little mysteries that take me down pathways that a million others haven't. A big thanks to Kate from Love You Big for sparking many of my new artistic interests. Kate also has a reading list on her blog, which is fascinating. Do check out Love You Big.
All the best!
