what lurks in the wool aisle

* Greetings, it is I, here once again to share my thrift store and swap meet treasures!

In honor of upcoming Halloween (what, it's never too soon to start counting down!), may I present Junior Casuals from Mary Maxim, date unknown.

Clowns. Scary, rubber-nosed, kneeling clowns with a suspicious look in their eye. The little girl seems happy enough, like she's about to curtsey. But we'll never see her again ... in this booklet at least.

How can they be smiling and not notice the scarecrow coming to life mere feet from where they stand?!?

They've brought along carrots to appease the appetite of the White Rabbit. Perhaps they will live after all.

I think the little girl is beginning to lose her mind. The pinata speaks to her, commands her to do his bidding.

This fellow isn't too bad, but he's about to win some kind of staring contest.

That has got to be one of the worst cat costumes I've ever seen. The eyes are so blank and soulless ...

We reach the end. The little girl has seen too much today. "Come and play with us, Danny. Forever... and ever... and ever"


  1. Wow! If I didn't already have a thing about creepy clowns, I would now. And that scarecrow behind the kids? Holy horror movie, Batman!

  2. thanks for the comments ladies!
