Did I show my goodies I got whilst on vacation?
I don't think I did, dammit!
THE cutest little tea towels on the planet.
Found, uh, crap I can't even remember where we were.
Just some crappy little grocery store that we happened upon.
They were .99 each!
I do remember where we got this:
Oh yea baby, a "Penguin Hot and Cold Server."
Do you have any idea how long I've been looking for one of these?
Actually, I have never seen nor heard of one before Jackdaddy spied it in this RAD thrift store we found in Durango, Co.
By the way, Durango? THE most adorable freakin' place ever!!!
All so Colorado-y and stuff, but super liberal and hippie-like.
Yum, yum, my kinda town.
Seriously though, who could pass up a damn penguin hot/cold server?
A lot of you probably, but not meeeeeee!
FinnigantheCurious with his macabre sense of humor said that we should invite people over and tell them we made penguin soup with meat that Jack brought back from Antarctica.
So hilarious, my boy. And weird.
Basket love ... found in Mammoth, CA. at an outdoor flea market.
Now you can get these same baskets at Whole Foods for half of what I paid for it, but I really prefer to grossly overspend on my souvenirs.
Honestly, I was so excited to find this booth because I looooove these kind of baskets and have been wanting one forever.
We were in the Santa Fe Whole Foods a few weeks later and they had the same &%^$#@ things for half the price.
Jack snickered and said that the Nigerian woman I bought them from probably got them all at Whole Foods then took them up to Mammoth and sold them to dumbos like me.
Sucker. That's me. Me, the sucker.
I love it either way.
I also got a tiny one that I've been using for collecting eggs and for collecting 4 baby chicks after they've had some free-range time and have to back to the safe zone.
Baby chikkins in a basket is soooooo unbearably kayoooot.
Doesn't matter if the basket was cheep or not.
PS Don't forget to say, "Jackrabbit" when you wake up in the morning for good luck. If you forget, my mama will call and remind you - she always does. She is a good, good mama in all ways, but especially for reminding me of important things like saying Jackrabbit on the first day of the month.
