Weird Wednesday – I’m Dreaming Of A Weird Christmas

Wow. It’s been a week since I last blogged! Quick update: the Winter Wonderland Festival was a success! We raised a substantial amount of money for the church, the vendors did well, the kids had a blast … despite snafoos like the bouncehouse guy never showing up, and the wind being so strong that we had to move games inside, it went really well.

In other news, we’re listing more items in the shop this week to stock up for Christmas! You’ll find inexpensive stocking stuffers, more “just vintage” listings, and pretty, sparkly things to wear for the holidays, like this:

Sparkling Beaded Vintage Applique Brooch

Now, onto Weird Wednesday. Today’s collection is inspired by che4u’s (aka Gypsy Roses) Goin’ Stag Antlers:

Goin' Stag Costume Horns

Lump of Coal Soap by burntmill

Yellow Snow Winter Elegance Bracelet In Brilliant Citrine And Quartz Crystal by OneEyeCatDesigns

Loopy Art Doll - Valerie by loopyboopy

Hoping you’re all enjoying the holidays this season!

TillyBloom, I’m sorry I haven’t noticed your delightfully crazy work before now, because I think I’m in love.

Go check out her shop for some more of the really surreal!

Weird Wednesday – Gnomes and Ninjas

This is one of the first things I saw this morning, and it made me smile:

Felt Gnome and Ninja Fingerpuppets by FeltLunchbox

So, I thought I’d check out some other gnomes and ninjas on etsy:

Gnoming Around Gnome Reusable Snack Bag by sacksavers

Baby Ninja Plush by vivikas

Hiding From The Rain Art Print by pipodoll

Lego Ninja Cufflinks by Cufflinks

I won’t be surprised to see Ninja gnomes start sneakily popping up around the custom order requests!

Weird Wednesday – Presidents and Gangsters

So, a little known fact about our family – we are related to Grover Cleveland, the 22nd and 24th president of the U.S. (he’s the only one to serve 2 non-consecutive terms.) He married Francis Folsom at the White House when he was 49 and she was 21, and he didn’t think women should vote. Thanks, Grover.

Perhaps more interestingly, though, we’re related to Pretty Boy Floyd, one of the infamous bank robbers of the 1930’s. He hated his nickname, escaped from prison, and was shot down by officers and FBI agents in Ohio. I’d say that makes for a much better Hollywood movie. As a matter of fact, in the opening scene of “Public Enemies” starring Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum portrays Pretty Boy as he’s being killed. Needless to say, I was pretty excited they included him.

So, that’s today’s inspiration. Presidents and gangsters. Which side are you on?

Thoughtful Thursday – Happy World Smile Day!

Today, ladies and gents, is World Smile Day. A day proclaimed by the U.S. Congress to celebrate the smiley face (invented by Forrest Gump), and to commit one act of kindness or make someone smile. I say, make as many people as possible smile today and every day! Be kind, rewind, and turn that frown upside down.

So, I made a treasury for you to smile at, because I just couldn’t fit so much funny in one post without hogging the whole page:

Happy World Smile Day! 🙂

Please click until you just can’t click anymore. There’s more where these Etsians came from!

I hope your day is full of happiness, and that you give some to everyone you meet.

Weird Wednesday – Double Trouble

I’ve always been fascinated by twins, especially of the Siamese variety. Twins run in my family and my husband’s, so we’re convinced we’ll have them someday. In fact, our little niece (the day after our wedding) looked up at me, unprovoked, and said in her sweet little southern voice: “Is y’all gon’ has twins?” Um, yeah.

Also, I thought today would be the perfect weird day to share my project from yesterday: our new Halloween door wreath! Have I mentioned I love dollar stores? Everything I used to make this wreath was a buck or less (and I already had the ribbon.) Total: $7.00, including the wreath hanger.

When you look out the peephole you see feathers, but it's worth it.

What do you think? Not too shabby for 7 bucks, huh? What seasonal projects are you working on?

Weird Wednesday – Mustache Mania

This is just one of those trends that a lot of people don’t get. Why mustaches? Well, first of all, they’re funny. Think the silly disguise glasses without the big black rims and fake nose. Second, look at all of the people made cooler by mustaches:

Dali, Burt Reynolds, Chaplin, Tom Selleck

Third, Halloween is coming up, and what better costume-in-a-pinch could you ask for?
