IF IT'S MONDAY........
I must have taken these photos last Thursday.
It was a beautiful fall day, we went to Tallahassee for fun and stopped at Maclay State Gardens. Surprise! Scarecrows in the Park was up. It's a scarecrow competition that local people, businesses and schools compete in. Here are the ones I liked.
A friend of mine came by this morning and took the NuWave oven off my hands. He's going on tour for Christmas and was happy to have it. He can cook and not have to eat fast food all the time. So, that worked out well. Oh, and before I forget...

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 119
Wednesday, already? Because I didn't get to Toys R Us before they pulled the Breaking Bad action dolls, here's a pretty lady
Sometimes I just don't understand major corporations mindsets. ( oh, it's the $$$$, right?)
Sorry about the rant, enjoy the day

IS IT FALL YET?
It might be and just in time for my BFF to visit on her vacation. She drove all the way from South Carolina by herself. Thank you, GPS! What do two long time friends do when they visit? Go shopping, of course. And by "shopping" I mean thrifting.
The craft stores have discovered Day of the Dead.
On to the thrifting part
And to carry all my treasures in.......
The BFF brought me another gift. Her Mother was visiting for 6 weeks and bought a ton of stuff. One item was this....
You know you always find strange things at thrift stores? I found this
Have a good week, and don't let Twisty get you!

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 118
Not a doll from my recent travels, but she could be. She's an old tourist trade doll from probably the 1950's. I got her in an auction lot.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 117
I took some quiz on facebook and did you know in a past life I was burned at the stake in Salem? Neither did I. Maybe this guy had something to do with it
or maybe he's Snape's dad. I've been re-reading the Harry Potter book. Whatever he is, he's creepy!

TREND OR PROBLEM?
The weather has turned chilly (for here), which means I've been rummaging in my closet pulling out sweaters and long sleeve tops. I also found these.........
Or is that just my excuse for having a ton of shoes?

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 116
Another vacation doll. I bought this one new at an arts store in Seilgmen, Arizona. It's a Hopi Kachina doll. It's a bear and has F. C. on the bottom. You can tell if Native American pieces are real by looking for the artist name and official tag on the item. So much stuff sold at roadside stores is from China. If you're going to buy a piece of Native American art, buy it from an Native American artist. This doll was only $10.
oh, look, you can see the red Day of the Dead skull in the background. Heche en Mexico, not China.
