and now for something a little lighter....

... y muy practical!

I have a few things on my list - to buy, trade, borrow...can you help me find any of these things?

- a cone type coffee filter holder (for making 1 or 2 cups at a time)

- some magnetic tape - I think it would usually be used to make fridge magnets

- a piece of foam that is (or could be cut to) 2" x 3" x 72" - to extend a mattress topper

- a fishing tackle box - (useful for sewing supplies)

- any kind of old "totes" that could be used to make a worm bin for composting

- some boracic acid (to mix with borax and make non - toxic termite protection for plywood)

- a wide roller shade or 2 narrow ones (even a wrecked one is OK, as I have fabric to replace it with, but need the mechanism).

That's a good start -

If you have some of this, or can tell me where to get it, I will be grateful.
