Desktop Goodies 5/25

I’d love a copy of this.

This was the ONLY way to play with Weebles back in the day!

“Hey…would you cut me a slice of that potato salad?” I’m not sure why the mid-20th Century as a whole felt that all food was better served molded and congealed.

Maybe Snuggles can cook up something better.

Now THIS is a great piece of food!

My kinda cookbook…

Clearly the world’s most amazing self-help book:

And a book I want very badly!

A book that the occasional SheWalksSoftly reader might have actually had:

Why it pays to be nice…

“Hang on…I have to put my face on.”

An accessory for the man about town:

And quite the dress design…

I’m intrigued…

I never expected a Mighty Dark-Winged Avenging Lord of Chaos to be named “Bryan.”

Pleasant dreams, kiddies…

It seems I had a bunch of images lined up to post, so expect another Desktop Goodies installment soon…

  1. As always, I LOVE your goodies! I wanted the Weeble Haunted House as a girl but got the Pooh Bear one instead. I’m hunting for the haunted house at flea markets but coming up empty.

    Do-it-yourself-coffin…have you read the Amazon reviews on this one??? If not, you MUST read them ALL! That’s all I’m going to say πŸ˜‰

    The grave marker…someone is rotting in a place not very nice…ouch!

      I had no idea there was a Pooh Bear haunted house!

      I did NOT read the amazon reviews of the coffin book…but I sure will now! πŸ™‚

      • You are so cute! Not a Pooh Bear haunted house…just an innocent Pooh Bear tree house. How fun you connect all things haunted with me πŸ™‚

        Oh, and you MUST read the Amazon reviews! Hopefully the ‘one’ is still up…quite thrilling and horrible actually. Something right out of a movie!

  2. what that cat has opposable thumbs?!

  3. OMG that Weebles Haunted House is giving me flashbacks to my old Weebles Magic Kingdome

    • shewalkssoftly Says:

      I don’t think I had that one! I wish I had kept the haunted house. Maybe it’s still in my basement somewhere…

  4. two things that stood out to me: That the weebles had a haunted dollhouse and that potato salad can be served in loaf form….. I’m a potato salad fan and as a potato salad fan, I can say… that looks wrong. very wrong. yuck.

    • shewalkssoftly Says:

      In the mid 20th century, all food was somehow transformed into a loaf and sliced up for serving. You’d be amazed at the congealed horrors of this time period!

    Carrie, I can’t respond directly due to WordPress’s absurd 3 comment thread limit. But Pooh Bear SHOULD have had a haunted house! Everyone else was getting on at the time. Why not Pooh? (*imitates sad bear voice* “Oh bother…”)

  6. DIY coffins! Unbelievable. Looks like the next guy needed a DIY tombstone. It reminds me of an episode of Jam where a guy had a living funeral. He was sitting in his coffin waving at people as he was brought to the grave. I think he read his own obituary! Then he was buried alive and left to die. Jam was incredibly creepy like that.

  7. YAY! I needed a DTG fix today… Thanks!

      You just reminded me I have to get going on the next one. I had tons of leftover images. Perhaps I should make it a weekly thing because these posts are the most fun to make!
