They LOVE this echinacea (which died down to a nub in the winter and was in danger of being pulled out!); there were two of them (boy and girl, I think) on this plant for about half an hour. It's remarkable to me that they are so lightweight that the stalks don't even bend one bit under them.

Up top: a Muffler Man! Love. Them. If you don't know what they are, here's a history of them. And here are a bunch of Google images of them. I especially love the fact that a little bird is sitting on his head!
And I think I just might like to go drinking at the Tattle-Tale Room...according to the sign, it's "exciting." It is described various places as a classic dive bar, which, delightfully, has its own website (karaoke EVERY night!). Check out the ultra-fab exterior (the light changed and I couldn't get a shot of it.) Love!

The second car--a VW Beetle, one of my loves--was one of three similarly lowered VWs traveling in a caravan.
And the last one: sure, why NOT paint your Karmann Ghia lavender?

They actually do taste different. The Smarties coating has a bit of a flavor to it, while the M&M coating is basically just sugar. Here is one person's comparison of the two.
I confess to preferring M&Ms, while B.--who grew up in Europe and has an English mum--prefers Smarties. I guess that childhood nostalgia thing is hard to overcome! Now, let's talk Reese's peanut butter cups vs. Trader Joe's...THAT'S a tough contest!

These dudes/dudettes are soooo cool--love them! (He's pretty big, actually--that tail is about 5 inches long.)
Two posts today, because, well...there was none yesterday! Mistakes were made...this was in draft but never got published. Oops!

The bottom two photos are from a vintage 1972 needlecraft magazine--I am addicted to them and love everything in them! I may have to knit that sweater with the heart (but I'll skip the short shorts and knee socks...they might cause a riot if worn by me).
