So I made myself an Easter basket..

I am one of those eternal, materialistic children that still loves getting an Easter basket. My mother used to put together the most amazing, fun little Easter baskets that it was like having a second Christmas. There was nothing big or stupendous or expensive, but she has always had a keen sense of fun and would put the most nifty items in the ones I received all my life.

So, I made a little Target and Five Below trip and assembled a few things I love, and only one thing was over four dollars(the basket). Let’s take a look! (click on the pics for descriptions)

Toylanta 2018!!

Toylanta was this weekend—it’s a big annual toy convention held in Atlanta over a weekend. It started as a hub for GI Joe collectors but expanded to include vintage toys across the board.

Halloween Countdown 2017: Gifts from my Nephew!

Sometimes I really enjoy being the crazy aunt. For one thing, my beloved nephew and niece send me fun stuff, like this:

Bryan gift 1

My nephew works for a logistics company,so he’s conscientious about including a “shipping manifest” for a box of stuff he sends. In the box were all kinds of things for me, my husband, my other brother,and my mother and stepdad, and my nephew Bryan neatly wrote a description of everything and who it all should be distributed to. 🙂

Here is most of my stuff before I uncovered a few more things. I should note that my oldest sibling’s children attend the University of Arkansas and therefore are big Razorbacks fans. I by default apparently now have to support the team —Bryan asked me if I would send some good juju—–so.uh..WooO PIGS! SOOOIIIEEEEE!(did I do that right, kids?)

Anyway, I got a kitty candleholder and candles, a lighter with an awesome reptilian eye(I don’t smoke, of course,but people can send me stuff like this anyway if it looks cool), a couple of Oreo Halloween eggs that I have to share with Steve, a sweet kitty and pumpkin magnet, and a great drawing of a Jack o’ lantern face on the envelope with my card. 🙂
