flea market finds - do you like Daniel Craig?

Not long ago at work, I was discussing a client's difficult housing situation with a colleague, trying to come up with another way to help her, when my colleague said, "you're a stray puppy kind of person, aren't you?"

She was right. Even though I've never adopted a stray dog, I'm the kind of person who notices scared, stray dogs on stormy days, and cares for them till their owners arrive.

I've noticed my op-shopping is beginning to reflect my "stray puppy sensibilities", buying items just because I feel sad that they're still in the shop after weeks, or because the item was handmade and needs someone to respect that and care for it again.

This instinct led me to take this home...

Yep, it's a lovely, well made tea towel, still available for sale new over here, and I'm pretty sure it featured in a recent magazine (Notebook I think). I felt sad that such a good quality product was buried on the floor under old sheets and pillowcases, and so I took it home.

The thing is, I don't really like Daniel Craig - I like him, but not enough to dream about him.

So I was thinking, does anyone else?

So put up your hand if you really like Daniel Craig (on second thoughts, write a comment and tell me why you like him, that might be more effective), and I'll get some random number selecting device to choose a winner. Entries close 12 noon next Sunday 15 August Australian Eastern Time...

Come on, let's find this puppy a home!

Who's Daniel Craig? Should I google him? Am I revealing my ignorance?

maybe if it said johnny depp I'd be in it ;)

p.s it's funny, we were discussing him last night whilst watching a James Bond movie

when i saw your title, i thought. no, sorry, don't like craig. and now i can admit that i don't, because, luckily, you don't have the hots for him either, and i won't hurt your feelings.
BUT! the type on that towel is luring. i totally understand you took the towel home.
not sure if that's got anything to do with stray-ing... :))

That's hilarious all right! I don't like Daniel Craig either, but I have been known to also bring home ugly bizarre things that people have left heee hee!

mmmmmm neeeehhhhh! He doesn't do it for me I'm afraid... now if it said:Joe Manganiello I'd be smiling wide!

hee hee! I had thought I might be in a non-Daniel-Craig-enamoured minority, but in fact I seem to be in good company!
Still hoping someone will come along and claim him though - starting to feel a bit sorry for him!!
