(Knit your own golden retriever)
I was reminded of this post today (along with the feeling that the madness seems to strike earlier each yea)…..it sums up such a interesting feeling that I believe it deserves another viewing, along with the proviso that whilst the spirit is there, the links probably aren’t…
When looking for presents, I start every Christmas with a simple shopping list of good intentions..
..But somewhere along the line something happens.
I can’t decide whether it’s because I’ve been beaten down and seduced into embracing the madness of the season..or it’s a bizarre reaction to the obscene commercialism that’s always lurking round the corner..
But it always reaches a point when suddenly giving a gift of earwax seems the most natural thing in the world..
And why shouldn’t a stuffed toy include the inner bits as well?
Mouse taxidermy? It could be the new baking…
As The final finishing touch, Firebox – the source of all this wonder (and recommended to me by the wonderfully talented Beth, through her Blog The linen Cat Blog ) add their own distinct wrapping service. Pure genius.
Now if I could have an unlimited supply of ‘crap wrap’ stickers, I think I would be happy for life…grunge wrapping is the new black…

OMG — I want the “roadkill” plushy (I actually have someone I could give it to, who would laugh very hard — her husband stopped to pick-up roadkill on their first date (he put it in the trunk/boot). He was one of those biology Geeks and grew up out in the countryside.
The Baby Sweeper is good, too.
Thanks for the mention 🙂 Glad you found the site as entertaining as I did, I so nearly bought the mouse taxidermy kit for my sister, as she has plenty of mice in her Yorkshire cottage! I’ll be emailing you to get a meet-up date put in the diary for New Year, but if I get sucked into the crazy haze of Christmas first, I hope you and yours have a fab one. Bethx
Every year, I have good intentions… and the closer we get the further it all slips away xx
okay, that is just too funny..Nothing says I love you like…..mouse taxidermy? stuffed roadkill? earwax? really? Very entertaining!
Put your baby to work polishing the floor….genius idea !!!
