I’m not sure who’s more alarmed…me or this pumpkin

In honor of Jack-O-Lantern carving season, I present to you this effed up little piece of knick-knackery I’ve dubbed the panicked punkin.  Judging by the look on his face he:
A) Just watched Paranormal Activity
B) Unexpectedly sharted in public
C) Just discovered his picture here on this blog.

panicked pumpkin
Does anyone else find the inclusion of teeth and a tongue disconcerting?

Creepy Clown Revisited Equals Way More Creepy!

Remember this creepy guy?
freaky clown smiling
Well it turns out there is much more than meets the eye that we missed the first time.  Kim picked him up and turned him around at our last visit (no one has bought him yet, imagine that) and found this considerably more disturbing side to him.
freaky clown wtf
I’d have a frowny face on too if someone sewed my eyes shut!
Apparently he is from the Golden Circus Legion of honor.  Considering how freaking scary he is, I’m not sure that’s an honor.

Salty, Peppy and Snobby

These little guys scream hilarity to me, but as I found recently, when Lisa and I ventured to Junk Bonanza (which is 3 days of fabulousness involving antiques, crafts, repurposing and a whole lot of fun – think Craptastic times a million! anyway…) these little guys were rather popular.  Well, Salty and Peppy were anyway.  I never saw any of the snobby little chef, that was just at this thrift store.  The point is, that I obviously missed the boat on these.  (Ok, I still think they are ridiculous, but antique dealers everywhere will apparently beg to differ).

P.S.  So far so good on the “close to the end of the year resolution”.  Although, it seems that, for the time being anyway, I have lost my counterparts for for now y’all are stuck with just me.    Apparently I just had to get over my case of blogathy.  Or what I affectionately like to call a serious case of “I don’t give a damn!”  Any of you readers still out there who blog ever encounter that?

Update… and Kickass Video

hello all!  Well, it’s been about 2 weeks since we’ve posted anything.  We have an array of excuses… some good (moving!!) some lame (just too busy!) and everything in between.  In all honestly, I will admit to feeling less than inspired to write anything lately and I was beginning to feel like my posts showed it.  I’d rather give you a “vacation” from us than to post total crap everyday, so I took a little hiatus.  It probably would have been polite to say so before now, but hey… I never claimed to be perfect. 

What this all means to you: you will be seeing more from us.  hehe, you can’t get rid of us that easily.  But what I want to share with you today has nothing to do with thrifting, or horrendous thrift store finds.  While this originally goes against the whole purpose of this blog, this is a good enough reason to stray from our “mission” and I hope you will agree. 

If you’ve read past posts, you may know that I am a nurse by day (crazy ass thrifting goddess of snark by weekend.)  :)  Today I want to share with you a brilliant little video made by the fabulous place where I work.  Not only is it awesome (!) but it is  a really good message.  check it out!  comment!  share!



We may live in a podunk little Minnesota town, but we are overflowing with awesome if I don’t say so myself.  Share the love and pass it on!
