Bunny blues

I think this fence-decorated boxy fairy bunny is having trouble figuring out where to hide these eggs.

These wrought iron wings can't be helping.

Someone get this poor thing some Prozac. And me too while you are at it.

A relative bought this light up flamingo for our yard. That way, we and our neighbors could enjoy it both day and night. "Sadly", it broke when we were trying to put the batteries in the base, a la the leg lamp.

C'mon, dig 'em up!

It's that time again, when I ask you to please dig into those closets, drawers, attics, and garages to send me pics of your hideous gifts! Even if you think that they are only slightly hideous, trust me, I will find and bring out the hideousness in them!
Send the photos to:

Family recipe

Someone actually gave this to my children as a gift. Rubbery roaches in equally rubbery spaghetti. They were actually excited because they exclaimed, "Look Mommy, just like Granny* makes!"

*My MIL.

Happy Birthday to me

Today, many moons ago, I was born. Here's my birthday cake. As you can see, I am one of Methuselah's children. Anyone have a match? I lost the use of my hands after I lit last year's candles.

"Here's the lovely ceramic cat that my mother got for Xmas. For whatever reason she has always used it as a patio ornament as you can see in the background. All those years when I would waste time trying to tan myself out on the patio, that damn cat would be gazing at me from the flower bed or the steps to the sliding glass doors. It's weirdly been out there for years!!! Too ugly to be kept in the house, I suppose."
Looks like this cat has been dipping into the catnip a little too often.

World's Ugliest Suitcase

It's time for me to pack my suitcase and go on a trip (thankfully, this is not my suitcase)! I will be back on Sunday evening with more hideous gifts to share with you. Until then, I invite you to revisit some of the hideous gifts in the archive. TTFN!

Happy Fourth!

Nothing says love for our country like a capful of glue and glitter.
