The Angry Pumpkin and the Night of the Living Dummy

Happy Fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸŽƒ

I’ve been so excited for this post! (I was going to wait and post it at the start of October, but I caved – close enough!)

I’m happy to 1) showcase my pumpkin purse and 2) showcase my creepy/cute ventriloquist doll. It will be a fun fall post, so I hope you enjoy! πŸ‚

This cute little pumpkin purse I bought off of Aliexpress is the bee’s knees; I love how he looks angry, like he’s my little protector and he will bite you if you do anything out of line! Those little teeth look like they would hurt, too. (Side note: the purse originally came with a longer chain handle, but I switched it to a different one!)

And for his grand debut on this blog, I will now introduce my ventriloquist doll I have owned for the majority of my life!

I found him in an antique store as a kid, and I was drawn to his perfect blend of cute and creepy. My mom very kindly bought him for me, and he’s earned a cozy spot on my shelf all these years.

The best part about him? He’s fallen over at random, and ironically, only in the dead of night when I’m asleep, or about to be. It doesn’t happen very often – maybe once every few years, out of nowhere, and never in the daytime. Chalk it up to coincidence, or maybe he’s haunted – in either case, I adore him! ❀️

ALSO, I WENT TO DUNKIN’ DONUTS… πŸ’œ

This may be no big deal to those with easy access to one, but for me, who lives in a city without a Dunkin’ Donuts, it was a grand adventure to try it. SERIOUSLY!!!

My sister and I decided last Sunday, heeeeeey! Let’s go to Hanford to try Dunkin’ Donuts! And thus, we were off on the 45 minute drive out of town on a whimsical adventure to seek such a treat that Fresno has yet to offer us.

You bet your bottom dollar it was worth trying! I was like a little kid in a candy store, eyes wide with joy at the sight of neon pink and orange everywhere in the store. How can you not have a big fat smile on your face being around such colors?!

And of course, the donut and coffee put a big fat smile on my face, too. I was literally so happy to try this place, finally!! Apparently it’s more commonly found on the East Coast, but not the West. So it was a real treat!

See ya next time!

  1. Spooktacular post! I noticed the bamboo handle on your adorable pumpkin purse right away; it’s impressive that you added it yourself. And it’s hilarious how you describe him: “I love how he looks angry, like he’s my little protector and he will bite you if you do anything out of line.” LOL! As for your ventriloquist doll, he’s indeed creepy cute! He really rocks that plaid blazer, and the Goosebumps book is a genius touch. Way to look at his random stirrings with a sense of humor πŸ™‚ Finally, I’m glad you made it to Dunkin’ Donuts! There’s one right down the street from me — but I’ve never been there. Not too long ago, I said something to the husband about it and he thought it was funny because I rarely go to any of them. Now every time we pass one, he’s like, oh, we have to stop at your place. Anyway, hearing about your trip there makes me want to stop for real next time!
