Well, welcome to spring in Colorado:

Spring in Colorado

Woke up to this today.  At least eight inches of heavy wet snow and it is still falling.  It was bad enough that dear hubby went out, spent about five minutes trying to clear the car, came back in, called in to work, and went back to bed.  There are a ton of kids in our state who are pretty bummed.  The perfect snow day, and they can’t even head out to the favorite sledding hill, as they still have to social distance.  Hopefully, there will be some really artful snowmen later on.

We will be keeping most of our regular posts kinda short to ration our photos, plus a lot of you are really enjoying our Boredom Buster posts right now, and they take a bit to put together, so here are a few things to make you laugh on a Friday.

There seems to have been a theme running through a few of the finds this week.  We spotted this first:

They were supposed to be sweet, but they just came out terrifying.  I see zombies.  There is no other way to look at it.  The only good thing I see here is, apparently, he loves her enough to send a letter about it, and she didn’t immediately mark it “Return to Sender”  A match made in hell.

As we continued down the aisle, oops, there is another sighting:

Guess she was the third side in a cursed love triangle, and to console herself, or maybe use it for revenge, she has taken up with a Frankenstein of a teddy bear.  She is praying right now for the lightning to strike and give her creature life.  Then she is going to send it after the first two.  OK maybe not, but we knew we were in trouble when the next one showed up:

We had to do our duty and place the Night Mare with the Terrible Teddy.  Yes, we admit to arranging the shelf, but we consider it our duty to keep all these things together, so as to cause the shortest amount of time dedicated to visual distress.

While we are on bad “art”:

We sincerely apologize to every Native American out there.  What the heck were the makers thinking?  And who, in their right mind, would buy these and hang them on their walls.  I suppose I answered my own inquiry when I questioned the purchaser’s sanity.  Just say no to AWFUL southwest decor.

While we are apologizing, I am sincerely sorry for these.  We debated long and hard about even posting them and it if weren’t for the juxtaposition of the toilet with them, we would have refrained because they are nasty:

The camera was having a hard time focusing on this, but what the F*&%?  I don’t get it, and if that weren’t bad enough, the figure permanently glued to the top had two faces/heads:

It’s kind of hard to see, but there was a face on each side of it.  Even the dolls nearby were completely terrified.  We were shaking our heads, and rejoicing in the fact that we had no idea what they could have been thinking, as our brains just do not work that way, when we came around the end of the aisle, and low and behold there was another one:

Argh!!!!!!  I hate to say that they were gone the next week, but I believe they were.  Hopefully some really helpful employee just casually knocked them off the shelf into a dust bin.

This may bring me neatly around to my last photo:

I think this is really good advice, and there are some folks in the world who really need to take this to heart.  Luckily, our dear readers don’t have this problem, and we are thankful you are still with us!  Please take care of yourself and your loved ones.  Thanks for reading and tune in on Tuesday for another Boredom Busters post, or go back and finish up the stuff in the first three.  You know you want to.

    Honestly you find some of the scariest stuff, i’ve ever seen. Clearly people have more time to have BAD taste out there…LOL. Painting those patchworks had to be a pain….on the ceramic project. The toilets???I have no idea?

      I go to thrift stores all over and I have to agree with you. I might find a couple of scary things during a visit, but all of those plaster wall thingies were here at a thrift store during one visit!! Eek! People seem normal in CO, but who knows what’s going on underneath the surface veneer? Or, we can just blame it all on the transplants from other places dragging their weirdness across the country! Stay safe, Sandi

    Grossssssssssss! Snow…blech! We don’t have any of that on this side of the mountains, but we have had enough hard freezes over the past few days to pretty much doom the peach harvest. They are, right at this time, predicting a 100% crop loss. waaaaaahhhhhhhhh Your posts brings smiles, so Thanks, Ladies! Hugs from GJ! – Dawn

      Whaaaa not the peaches!! How awful for the Western Slope on top of everything else! So glad we could provide a bit of distraction today. Stay safe and we’re thinking of you! Hugs, Deb and Kathy
