LITTLE LADY LINGERIE makes creepy costume fun time hey!

Here is me in my Halloween costume:
Me and my pretty pretty dollie!

Remember when I blogged on Happy Valley Crafters about finding a booth called 'Little Lady Lingerie' at the Quilted Bear? Well, I was just too enamored by the whole concept of creepy boudoir nightgowns, that I went and bought one for myself! Mr. Floozy was appropriately freaked out by my Halloween costume choice. 

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. Hate me because I just told you that I was beautiful.



HAPPY HALLOWEEN from Ctholly's Eviler Twin

So, remember Ctholly? Secret love child of Cthulhu and Holly Hobbie? As it turns out, in a shocking plot twist, Holly gave birth to TWINS. One was raised on a moisture farm in a galaxy far far away, and the other was raised on . . . . 


THIS PILLOW.


Licking Cats is a family HOBBIE.
I did the stitching, but my mom made this pillow sham in like twenty seconds. She was all zip zip bibbity do dah SHAM WOW! And then it was finished. 


If you sully me, I can be washed, yo.
Ctholly 2 was presented with love to Dame Toadstool. It was her birthday and I was only like two weeks late in giving her a present.


Cthulhu, Holly Hobbie, Ctholly Twins, and I would like to wish you a HAPPY WEENIE!

DON'T BLINK

Why hello! I have been unnoticeably absent on this blog and other internet hot spotz because I have been busy in the real world. The most notable thing I did this last week was clean my pantry, because it was becoming seriously lethal. You're going into the pantry to get some Cocoa Pebbles when BLAMMO -- a can of cream of mushroom soup falls on your head. Who wants "A Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup Killed Her" on their tombstone? .... Okay. Yeah. I do. Can someone make sure my gravestone says that? K thnx.


Today the TV QUOTE FRIDAY HOOHAW! is late because I went to the Witch Fest at Gardner Village. It was fun but oh so crowded. But my favorite part of the day was when I saw this at the Creepy Doll Store:

I want to call you 'Mommy.'

I know!


Anyhoo. Today's movie quote comes from my friend who wants this stitched so that she can hang it over her daughter's bed. It's from Dr. Who. Tell me you know what the Weeping Angels are or I will weep tears of blood and sadness. And blood.


DON'T BLINK


A much MUCH awesomer embroidery was done of this quote. I featured it on my Pinterest. If you want me to follow you on Pinterest, let me know. I'm all about following other people till they issue a restraining order.

AAACK RUN AWAY!


Wait. Don't run away yet. Here is one more photo so you can see the stitching better.

My kids are "alternative-beautiful."

Every Halloween I set up this little spooky tableau on my piano.

Notice the holy water. That is 100% real holy water! I got it from a Catholic shop in Salt Lake. I pretty much wanted to buy everything in the store even though I'm not Catholic. I feel so much more prepared for the Apocalypse now that I have holy water.

And check out that photo of my beautiful children!



You too can beautify your children for Halloween by simply covering a photo with plastic wrap and then defacing it with sharpies.

Make sure you keep checking Happy Valley Crafters! I am posting a photo every day this week. It's so good, it will make you want to live in Utah! hahahaha.

BAZINGA! and my secret shame.

Last week's "Arrested  Development" quote was a hit. Asking for television quotes from you people who are supposed to supply me with material, was not. Only ONE (1) person gave me a quote. KrazyKris suggested "BAZINGA!" And I liked it because it was short and exciting, but confession: I HAD TO GOOGLE IT. And then I learned that it was from The Big Bang Theory, a TV show that I have been planning on watching, since, oh, the big bang ( I am that old.) I know! I am a loser! Here is a list of all the television shows I haven't watched. but I know that I should:


The Wire: Just power through the first three seasons, someone told me, then it gets crazy good!

Modern Family: I am 100.3% positive that this show would be my style, but I didn't catch the first episode, and if I don't catch the first episode, then I have anxiety knee-pit sweats about starting in the middle.

The Middle: I have heard that this is funny, too, and that it has waffle jokes.

Breaking Bad: I actually started watching this and loved it, and then my mom got cancer and I jettisoned all shows about cancer (see: The Big C).

Survivor: I am not highbrow enough to make any sort of holier-than-thou comment about reality television. I'm sure that this is fun, but doesn't this show take place all outdoors?!


Treme: This show looks stressful.

And of course, The Big Bang Theory.




Dork alert! The main reason I want to watch The Big Bang Theory? It has Billie from Charmed.


And I am sure that there are plenty more. I would recommend a few shows that maybe you're not watching? The United States of Tara (uh-maz-ing), Wire in the Blood (on Netflix! British, not for the squeamish), the Sherlock Holmes miniseries (also on Netflix, it has Benedict Cumberbatch, the most Britishly-named man of all time and Tim from Gervais' the Office), and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (so funny!).

Okay, so what should I be watching? (and include a quote with it, pretty pretty please).

Be Weird

My new interwebz friend,  Sarah, from wonderstrange arts, made this wunderlich creation called "Death's Minions -- Be Weird." And I bought it.


And it is now in my house. And I am happy.

As a mother, I think that 'Be Weird,' is one of the best messages that I can tell my children. That it's okay if they are different. That it's okay if the jokes that they love are only funny to them. That it's okay if they are not always smoothly acceptable to everyone else.

Make sure to check out all of the beyond awesome items at wonderstrange.com. I love all of the artists there. I will probably be buying some more of their work, because it is my style. And don't forget: BE WEIRD!

'Don't Take My Spot' Pillow

Every time my kids sproing from the couch to do a quick something (pee, eat a snack, sculpt a bust) they without fail say the same thing, "Don't take my spot!" Because once a spot has been claimed on the couch, it is now a special spot, full of mysterious comfort and perfected butt grooves. Inevitably, another child will sidle in and take the other kid's spot. Like nest stealing cuckoo birds.

Because I went to college for 7 whole months, I am now a Problem Solver. I stitched this pillow.

DON'T TA E MY S OT
Yeah, I need to restitch a few letters in darker thread. 

Now, please place the pillow down on your favorite sitting territory and go read my latest Floozy Finds. I won't take your spot. I promise.

Arrested Development Embroidery Sampler

To celebrate the return of Arrested Development I am going to start doing Friends of Floozy: TELEVISION Quotes Friday!

This sampler was screaming for lace, so I added it. (Actual lace cut from Lucille Austero's control-top panties.)

 

Comment on this blog or tweet or carrier-pigeon me your favorite TV quotes. Sitcoms, Courtroom Dramas, Reality television -- you name it. And don't forget, the shorter the quote, the more likely it is to be stitched. I'm tired.

Creepy Doll Heads Find Purpose and Meaning and Inner Light

I like Halloween. A lot. Pretty much most of the books I read fall into a subset of Halloween type literature. If a book doesn't at least have a vampire or a zombie or a ghost or a werewolf or a succubus or a demon or a gay angel, I have a difficult time mustering interest. Now, I've read a lot of great literature. I'm a sucker for a superb novel, and I will be coerced or guilted into reading one now and then. But, I'm a sad, ennui-riddled po' white stay-at-home mofo so I read mostly for the sense of escapism. My imaginary world is Halloween all year long. It is awesome.
That being said, here is what I did with the creepy doll heads I bought at the thrift store:
Would you like to play Twister with us?
I poked out their eyes and stuck them on battery-operated tea-lights. 
My children might need therapy for this later.
I also used an old doll I had from my childhood for my creepy doll shrine. I didn't even have to deface her or poke out her eyes to make her creepy. I just stuck a gray cheesecloth over her and put a fake crow, some rubber rats, and a plastic spider on her face. So cute!

Floozy says Happy Halloween!
