“PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF”

Hi there! I was created by the nice lady. She calls me a purse, but I’m confused. I am a decorated wooden box, with a handle. She’s never used me as a purse, or hand bag, or anything, really. I could be a treasure box, or a jewelry box, or a memento box, but so far I’ve just sat here looking cute.

The nice lady glued all kinds of things onto me. Mostly the items are things to do with all the pets she’s had over the years. There are photos of the cats and dogs, a parakeet, and gerbils, and there is a photo of her, when she was a little girl. She called herself ‘Critter Girl’.  There is also beads, a dog tag, and chain. Inside you can look at yourself in a little round mirror. The handle beads spell out ‘Friends’, which is a nice touch, as all her pets were her friends.

Several more box/purses were made to give to her daughters and sister, with photos of memories of them on the sides and back. The nice lady has two more blank boxes she could decorate someday. 🙂

“PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF”

Hello, from Melmac! Oops, sorry…my planet doesn’t exist any more. I live here with the nice lady now. I am a funny, sarcastic, hungry all the time, puppet. I used to have a TV show, “ALF”, which ran from 1986 to 1990. My name was the title of the show, and here’s what it means… A = Alien L = Life F = Form… ALF.

I was given to the nice lady quite a long time ago, by a friend. She was moving and thought I’d be happy to live with the nice lady’s family. This photo of me was when I was working a bit for Burger King, the fast food restaurant. See my apron? It says ‘Cookin’ with ALF’.  Cool, huh? I’m retired now, and am taking it easy, here at home. I’ve met the cats…I didn’t eat them. The nice lady would not approve of that. I do play with the cats sometimes, though, with the nice lady’s supervision. 🙂

“PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF”

Hey Hidy Hello!

I am a little autograph book, so open me up and take a look! Yeah, I’m all about the rhymes. I’ve belonged to the nice lady since 1961. She took me around to all her friends, teachers, and relatives, so they could write something in me. I have to tell you, I enjoyed it. I met so many people, and they wrote all kinds of cute words. Some were in ink, and some were in pencil; some rhymed, some drew pictures, and all were saved in my pages. They are a little well-worn after so many years, but I say it gives me ‘character’.

Here’s a couple of the fun and typical ways people signed in my pages…

2 sweet

2 be

___

4 gotten

Please let me name your very first nut

I’m happy the nice lady kept me all these years. 🙂

Hello

We are Japanese Temple Dogs. We have many other names that refer to us, such as… Fu Dogs, Foo Lions, and Temple lions. We  are the guardians of temples from the old days up until the present time. We resemble another guardian, the gargoyle.

Our job is to ward off evil spirits. We’ve been living at the nice lady’s house since 1979, and have been prominently displayed for all those years. We used to have orange tassels hanging from the swords in our mouths, but I think sometime along the way, the cats confiscated them.

We have traveled many miles over the years of living with the nice lady. We came to her while she was living in Japan, where we were created. Then, every time the nice lady moved to another country, state, city, we were carefully packed and shipped. We then were unpacked and resumed our important job, once more at a new house.

Thanks you nice lady, for the chance to protect you and your family! 🙂

Hi there!

I am the nice lady’s charm bracelet. I was a gift to her on her 16th birthday, so I’ve known her for a long time. I’m the best, because I have the most charms to show. On lots of occasions, I was presented with a new charm to remember that day in history. If you have a long time, I can tell you a story about each individual charm. They all have a special meaning to the nice lady.

Hellooo! Nice to meet you. I am the nice lady’s newest charm bracelet. I haven’t been in her possession as long as my ‘ahem’ friend up there, but I’m special, too! I was given to her either for a Christmas present or a birthday present, several years ago, by her daughter. Her daughter buys the charms to add to my links, and they are very cute. They also come from a famous jewelry designer, called James Avery. The nice lady wears me on special occasions.

There really is no contest…the nice lady loves both her charm bracelets for different reasons, and treasures the memories each charm brings. 🙂

“PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF # 7”

Good Afternoon! I am a desk. I have lived with the nice lady for many years. Her parents bought me for her, back when she was in elementary school. I think I’d be called a ‘student desk’. Here is where the nice ‘girl’ could do her homework.

I have sliding doors on the lower part, a shelf space in the middle, and up top I have a slanted door, which opens. There are little shelves and spaces inside, to keep supplies you might need. My door does make into a sort of table, to put your homework papers and books on.

Now, the girl is all grown up, and is the ‘nice lady’. I’m glad I’m still useful to her. She puts some of her art supplies in my shelves, now. These items change from time to time, and is usually disorganized. I don’t mind at all. I’ve found that the more chaos there is, the more creative she can be. Also, way up top, the flat space, acts as a staging area for many of her photos. All kinds of scenes are created up there, with fun bits and pieces, papers, and doo-dads that she arranges for blog challenge photos. I have some fun with this sometimes. I make things fall off now and again. I also try to hide some items in my shelves. The nice lady gives me a look, you know the one, and I have to give it back. I’m glad I live here! 🙂

Greetings! I am Wizard. I’ve lived here at the nice lady’s house for several years.

I came from a different land…a land of bright lights, chaos, and mood music. I resided upon an exalted shelf, among lesser minions. I did not know my true calling until the nice lady and her family chose me to come to their castle house. They gave me a trial application performance, there in my big grocery store dominion, one late evening. It was an easy task…I only had to guide them around the land of bright lights, being their navigator.

I am a master at directions, and also accents. For this occasion, I used my Scottish accent (sounding like Scotty, from the original Star Trek TV series) as I guided the family among the aisles of my realm. I’d holler out with authority, “Come about!” , “Turn to the right!”, and so on. They were impressed, and were even happy I was filled with a sweet side of candy, which the nice lady ate. It tickled.

I’ve been Captain Wizard  now for many years, and have enjoyed being a part of the nice lady’s family and their memories of that special evening.

Well, hello there. I am Gopher, pronounced ‘Go – ferrr’, if you please. I am quite famous. Let me tell you why.

I had a starting role in the golfing movie, “Caddyshack”. Maybe you saw that one? It also had a lot of human stars who appeared in the movie. Now, before you get all snooty, and say how can you be the original famous Gopher, if you don’t live in Hollywood? Let me explain… it’s true, I am not the original, but a very good copy. I live with the nice lady and her mister. I’ve been here many years, and they took me into their family, because they really liked the movie, and the mister is a golfer.

Me…singing and dancing

Me…in my dirt pile (see my smile?)

I do sing and dance on request. I sing the song chosen for me by Kenny Loggins, called “I’m All Right”. Here’s a still shot of me in action.

I’ve also been on my very own adventures. I took a safari out into the back yard,where I was given an actual dirt pile to climb around in. That was fun! It was supposed to trick the cats into thinking I was a real live gopher…haha, it worked, too.

Another time, I was taken in a clandestine night time case of trickery. The nice lady’s daughter took me to her friend’s house, had me sit in their front yard, and pretend to be a mole. They were so confused by the trick, but then thought it was hilarious.  Of course I was the star of the whole thing, again!

I spend time now, entertaining the grand-daughter with my singing and dancing. Thank you nice lady and family for all the fun times! 🙂

Hey there! Nice to meet ‘cha! I’m a ‘looove’ chime. Haha … well, I’m a metal wind chime, and I spell out the word ‘love’, and look, I have cool cow-bells for making my music! They sound awesomely strong when the wind blows me around. I’m not one of those tinkle-y kind of chimes…uh-uh, none of that for me. The nice lady tried to take a good photo of me, but she’s no professional photographer, so it’s not the greatest. I have been hanging in this tree for a long time.

I used to live at another house, but one day, the people there were selling off everything in that house. I think it was an estate sale. I thought I was safe, but then I see a lady peering out the back window at me. She came out and grabbed hold of me, and took me home with her. I was hung in another tree, in her back yard, but then the tree was chopped down, and I was stuck laying down on the porch for awhile. Next thing I knew, I took a little trip to the front yard, and hung in this bigger and better tree.

I like this tree, and I think the tree likes me, too. Do you see how tree has trapped embraced me? It grew it’s branch all around my silver chain, and here I’ll stay put, probably forever. That’s ok with me. I enjoy hanging out here with the nice lady.

Hey, welcome to another November of every day blog posts for Nano Poblano, otherwise known as National Blog Posting Month NABLOPOMO.  For this challenge, we are to write a post each day in November, of our choosing. Since I post pretty much every day, anyway, that part won’t be difficult. I could just add the emblem to whatever I post. I have another idea, though. It’s one I’ve been thinking about for awhile, and now is as good a time as any to try something new.

My plan is to take a photo of something of mine, that I own, and write a little story about it, in the words of the object. I’d seen something done like this once before, (sorry, can’t remember who or where), but it was fun to read. So, wish me luck, and enjoy my contributions to Nano Poblano 2016. 🙂

Hello, my name is Honeybee. I am a vintage cologne decanter. I was created by the Avon Cosmetics Company back in 1978. I look like a cute little beehive. Do you see the little gold bee on the side?  I have a sweet yellow box with a bee on the side, too. I am filled with the awesome fragrance of the honeysuckle flowers. Mmm, I smell so good.

I was very popular back in the days of the 70s, and very collectible. Many people purchased a copy of me. Then, other fragrances were created, and everyone kind of forgot about me, so I was retired. So sad… However, someone saved me from oblivion, and eventually I was sold to another. I was set on a table at a yard sale, with some of my other Avon friends. You can see the green sticker on my box. It was the price of fifty cents. That was quite a come-down from my youthful prices. I’m not complaining, you see. I’m happy to have been chosen to go live at a nice lady’s house. She loves me, and my sweet smell. Thank you, nice lady! 🙂
