Trick And Ye Shall Be Treated

(The following post has been sitting in my drafts box for a year now! If you're a blogger you can probably relate.)

It's amazing how much stuff people will just give you when you merely mention that you love Halloween and toys and such. So, I just wanted to take a moment to thank all the kind and generous souls that gave me all this sweet stuff!

A few weeks ago a coworker of mine, Angie, gave me all of her old Halloween decorations! I showed a few of the things that were included in the bin of macabre decor. I finally got around to decorating our front porch with the string lights. I think it looks pretty good.

Poor Donkey is missing an ear.

Another coworker, Laurie, gave me this sweet Shrek themed gumball machine! I love that it's not the usual red, it's a beautiful Shrek-green color. It's metal and plastic and it really takes quarters too! I filled it with peanut butter chocolate eyeballs.

I like Shrek n' all, but I kinda like the look with out the figures on top

Yet another coworker, Jeff, gave me this trio of Final Fantasy figures by Bandai.

  1. Mason people are usually kind to people who are kind. Your an awesome guy and it's cool to see people give you these goodies.

    That Shrek gumball machine is awesome. Another piece of well done merchandising. And good choice with the chocolate eyeballs.

    1. Thank you! I have learned from experience that what goes around really does come around. Speaking of which, I really need to send you that Halloween mystery box that has been sitting on my desk for some time now.

    1. It's fantastic! I used to have the same metal gumball machine in red, but I sold it at a garage sale a few years ago, so i'm glad to have this one.
