Some toys just make you smile.
The side-eye is a powerful thing – use it sparingly.
Dolls only get jealous of other dolls – this is a fact I learned from the recluse lady that runs this fascinating doll blog. She says that if you give each doll equal attention then no doll feels left out. Hmm. She sounds a bit crazy.
Before you reach out to pick up something at an estate, garage or thrift store sale – be sure to accurately identify what you are reaching for. When in doubt just rustle the items nearby and check for movement. If an item looks dirty, it is dirty so proceed with caution and gloves OR shop with a friend who isn’t concerned with these things. But seriously, most sales are clean. This was a toy rat that gave me a good scare at first look.
The Thrifter must become immune to the clown no matter how scary. Clowns may rule your nightmares… but they also rule the shelves of every thrift store. Build up your courage and don’t let them get you down – their intentions are good (usually).
