The Good, The Bad & The REAL Bad

"She's a big sister. She hugs her little brother really, really hard. Sometimes she holds his little hand so tightly his knuckles pop. What can she say? Sometimes love hurts".

Did that tickle your funny bone? Are you snickering at least a little? Are you rolling over with laughter? Do you need to excuse yourself? I about fell off my chair when reading the descriptions for these "Quirky folk art dolls in the primitive style" from Gravel Alley Primatives (pocomedio's) Etsy Shop.

I came across this shop one day from one of my Team ESST member's blogs. Let me tell you, just looking at these "rag stuffed for that old time, heavy, lumpity bumpity" handmade dolls, will make you smile - and then wet your pants after reading the descriptions! Like this one:

"Keep hands and feet clear. She doesn't have much to say but she has teeth like a shark. She loves to wait until mom's making a left turn into heavy traffic before she sinks her teeth into her baby brother's shoulder. When he learns to talk, she's in trouble. "

Just one more doll to share with you then whether you are in need of a smile, chuckle or laugh until you... well, cry? You MUST go check out her shop. You won't regret it. Promise.

"Stand back. She's gettin' ready to sweat. Her change of life is in full swing and if you say one more thing she may help you slip into something more comfortable, like a coma."

Oh, and the Menopausal Matriarch? Stand back... she's mine! Yup, just bought her. I can hear Mark laughing right now. Or is that the laugh of fear wondering what it will be like with two of of us in the same house?

Happy Friday,
Rocki

They are so cute..What a good sense of humor she has..I didn't get your address at Christmas..just wanted to send a little greeting. What I thought was fun, I was worried I was stressing people out, so I stopped.
