Piggy you rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard
The devil went to a thrift shop, he was looking for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind: he was willin' to make a deal.
When he came across this old pig sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot.

You Can't Dust M&Ms
I had to buy this retro turquoise glass snack dish -- I mean, come on -- it's fab-u-lous
! As the rooster says, "It's something to crow about!" (The photos don't do the turquoise color justice.)
At $2, it was a thrift shop steal.
But then, being 9.5 inches tall, and having a mouth diameter of 4.5 inches (much narrower than the base), it would cost, what, $45 to fill it with peanut butter M&M's?
Plus there's the additional cost of "a lifetime on the hips" -- because you cannot dust off M&M's, you have to eat

Proof That The 1950's Were Nutty

The seller says:
UNBELIEVABLY FABULOUS photo print of NUTS...shelled, and unshelled WALNUTS, and it looks like some shelled almonds are in there too, the 'photo' is black and white, which has been hand-colored in tan, sepia, green and gold with grey 'shadows'....LOVE IT!!!
