Thing 99

99. Buy an item off the “Things I Want to Buy” list

I have been wanting a UU chalice necklace for over a year now, so now that I have a fulltime job, I let myself buy one. I searched through the many I had favorited on Etsy until I found the one I liked the most.

Thing 40

2. Hunting Pokemon (Middle of mountain)
3. Fishing (Bottom of mountain)
4. Blue's Enclosure (Jurassic Park for Brickfair's dinosaur theme)
5. Bad Witch & Good Witch (Wizard of Oz)
6. Poppies will put them to sleep (Wizard of Oz)
7. Mickey Meet & Greet at Fort Wilderness (Disney World)
8. Pride Parade (double-wide)
9. Toys R Us
10. Cookie Season (socially distanced girl scout cookie delivery via drone; double-wide)
11. Gryffindor Common Room
12. Slytherin Common Room
13. Ravenclaw Common Room
14. Yard Sale
15. Crime-fighting pups

The 2021 Habitat display had 17 different builders! Most of mine are on the left.

On my way to the July BCinDC meetup, I stopped by the special Becky's Hugs Little Free Library. I left 4 books there, all of which had Becky BookCrossing labels in them. It's a beautiful site for a LFL and a wonderful tribute.
