blo molds in Summer

Susie QT got me obsessing about my (and others) blo molds yesterday -see her post yesterday! She scored some awesome blo mold Halloween items, so I thought I'd do a post about them and get everyone else obsessed! I love these things and can't have too many! I mean more is better, right? Just look at Magpie Ethel's Santas ...further down on page! What an impact! How happy to walk up on a porch and be greeted by all of her light up Santas, especially the one peeking out of the picture window !


Wish I had them for every holiday! I once had an Uncle Sam, and I sold him. I regret that now!! Show us your collection!

Happy but tiring day

Hey all! What did you do on your Saturday?I cut the grass, worked in the garden, picked some beans, and took my Mom to the grocery store. I managed to stop in one of my favorite thrift stores...more on that later. Then, I came home, transplanted some basil, had dinner at Mom's, chased down 2 dogs that always seem to get away from me, (they're finally home now-very stinky and wet), sat on the deck for a while.
