Funny Finds

I really hate Christmas shopping. The crowds, the traffic, and strangely, the holidays somehow bring out the worst in people. My hubby and I managed avoid some of this mess by developing a strategy of heading out to the outdoor flea markets when the weather is crummy. No one is there and it gives you plenty of time to take it all in. Even if you are freezing your patootie off.

I ran across a couple of vintage items that I couldn't stop laughing at. My demented sense of humor doesn't help either. Count on vintage pieces to capture the odd.

Husband: "What the hell has gotten into you? Canned soup? Are you getting burned out on the job here?"
Wife: "Here we go again. Never happy even though I feed your face every stinkin' day!"

Guess they never thought about the literal meaning of this album. Enough said.

"It's probably best that I can't talk because I have the naughtiest thoughts running through my mind..."

The holidays can be rough sometimes. Set aside some time to enjoy what you love to do. Slow down and open your eyes amidst the rush. You never know what might make your day.
