Creepy Toys From The Past

I Do Wonder Why Toy Makers And Designers Were Thinking When They Created Some Of These Toys … For Children

It makes me question how society has changed … Perhaps with better communication with the internet that we are more aware of things today than things 10 or 20 or more years ago … Perhaps we’re paying attention more now than then …

There are a couple of these toys presented in the video by Kris Star that really creep me out … But … they each stand high on the creep out meter …

Take A Look Along With Kris Star At Some Really Crazy Scary Toys

 

If I Had To Choose One Of These Toys To Be The Creepiest …

I could have to go with the giggling doll … It makes you wonder what’s so funny … And when the batteries run down … that sinister laugh does raise goosebumps on your arms …

Well … what can I say other than dolls are creepy to me … This was before the Chucky movies … Even before I learned about Annabelle … Robert The Doll … Oh my goodness!!

I do have a creepy story posted on this website about a haunted doll … Check it out here …

I hope this gave you a bit of a pause to think about the toys you bought for the children in your life this holiday season …

Are You Interested In Old Stuff?

Many Go To Estate Sales, Antique Malls And On-Line Auction Sites

There’s a great variety of old stuff … toys … pictures, magazines, gizmos … old diaries …

I was looking at YouTube Videos and found a few regarding old diaries … This young woman was interested in the romantic stuff one would record in a diary … 

I’m not especially interested in snooping on the private thoughts of others … It was written as a personal thing … not to be lost and picked up and sold to be shared publicly …

I Was Thinking It Would Be Kind Of A Good Idea To Keep A Diary Or Journal For The Upcoming New Year

A diary or a journal would make a lovely gift …

Just know that in 20, 30, 50 or even a hundred years, it may be “found” and read by complete strangers!!

But … with social media … Many share all aspects of their lives publicly … So … is a diary something one would actually keep?

I Keep A Tarot Journal As I’m Learning To Read Tarot Cards … I Do Have A Different One For Each Of My Tarot Decks

I wonder if they are something I would want to share with others … Initially I thought of them as a learning tool … But perhaps some of my questions and answers are a bit personal … I may not want them to get into the wrong hands …

I’m really leaning towards private thoughts are to be kept private … And, then again … It may be interesting to look back on in later years as we mature or our skills become more refined …

I think a personal journal or diary in learning to play a musical instrument or learning to dance professionally or something of that nature would be worthwhile …

Well … there are all degrees of what one would consider personal …

 

I Thought The Diary Above Would Be Fun For All Ages

I believe diaries should come with a warning about what to keep private and what to write down …

You could write poetry … limericks are fun … Maybe a secret recipe that was handed down in your family … Look for something interesting and fun that you wouldn’t mind others reading …

Diaries can be fun … so if you decide to buy one or several keep in mind what would happen if they fell into the wrong hands … It’s not a slam book … Try not to make it hurtful … Yet at times we do get hurt … even by a best friend … but we don’t have to get all ugly about it …

I’m interested in your thoughts on the subject of diaries and journals. Leave me a comment below.

Enjoying The Holiday Season

Holidays Are About Sharing With Family And Friends … And Taking Lots Of Pictures …

I’ve been making a few changes to my websites … Watching Holiday movies on Amazon Prime Video … And doing a lot 9of thinking … Especially about this website …

I’ve had this website since 2014 … It has gone through some major and minor changes over the years … And I want to keep it .. But what niche market do I want to address?

Thinking about it … The concept of two cans on a string is about communication … Stuff we talk about … Things we want to share with others … Right now we’re thinking about Christmas or the hoidays you celebrate this time of year … 

Or you may be looking forward to the New Year … Wondering when your ship is coming in … Good fortune, hopefully is on the horizon …

What form it takes is entirely up to you … a job … job advancement .. a new home … retirement … 

We all have dreams … some times they work out … and … But we still have them …

The Ghost Ship

Over at RavensBlight you’ll find some interesting haunted toys that you can make … This could be your ship … The ship you’ve been waiting to come in to bring you and your family good fortune.

This could be a fun family project … Or something you’d like to make a lone … Or for a friend or family member …

I know the concept of a Ghost Ship can be creepy and downright scary … but it doesn’t have to be … You’re making this looking forward to better days and smooth sailing …

Assembling this ship could be a labor of love … Depending upon your desire to complete this project … it could take a few hours, days, weeks, months or even years … It all depends upon you …

 

I’m All About Being As Positive As Possible As We’re Approaching Christmas And The New Year

We don’t need distractions to keep us from achieving our goals …

TwoCansOnAString.com has gone through a lot of changes over the years … moving from one niche market to another … But what I’ve found best for me is to add content that is of interest to us due to the season or just because … So we may be a bit of a kitchen junk drawer — we all know the treasures we find there … or Grandma’s Attic … full of all kinds of adventures …

Of course my niche product is cell phones … I’ll be encouraging you to upgrade … but just have fun as you visit and read my blog … Visit my other websites, too …

Candy Canes And Hot Chocolate

I’ve Been On A Christmas Movie Marathon

For me Christmas Eve is my time to celebrate. The tree has been decorated … the stockings have been hung … presents nestled under the tree … A time to make hot chocolate, add a candy cane, sit in front of the fireplace and enjoy …
Why should Santa have all the fun on Christmas Eve? 
Yes, parents need the time to put together some gifts and make sure batteries are in the toys …
But remember … it was Christmas Eve when Scrooge had his visitations from the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future …
So … Celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve … Stay up all night … And sleep all Christmas Day!!
