The Muppets 2019 Calendar

I would definitely call the Muppets calendar for 2019 trippy. I Love, LOVE, love the bright, bold and beautiful backgrounds and the images of our favorite characters.  You will find Kermit the Frog singing "Life's A Happy Song", Miss Piggy getting ready for Christmas and proclaiming "Got Mistletoe" and the Swedish Chef greeting us with his signature expression "Bork Bork Bork."

Harry Potter Herbology Print

Previously, I found another Harry Potter Herbology themed poster on Etsy. However, it is no longer available so I went searching for another and found this one! I love the mandrake especially. How about you?

Etsy seller Kovvac created this image and she has a host of other great Harry Potter-themed items. You can find this print in her Esty store by clicking right here. Be sure to look around in her shop and see the other Harry Potter items that include but are not limited to a mandrake family, niffler items, stickers and greeting cards.

If you need extra help with your Herbology studies or just a plant- or garden-themed Harry Potter image, then this print is for you.

See you

Christmas of Many Colors (2016) Movie Review

Dolly Parton's A Christmas of Many Colors Circle of Love Christmas Movie ReviewI think that Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors Circle of Love is an excellent movie. It comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by me if you are in search of a family friendly movie with a heartwarming story of hard work and sacrifice.

Set in 1955 in Tennessee's Great Smokey Mountains where Dolly Parton was raised, it continues Parton's story and follows on another successful made-for-television movie that I have not seen yet called A Coat of Many Colors.

In this film, we meet a struggling family with eight children and some members of the rest of their community, including my favorite, a very supportive and well established 26-year old 'old maid' school teacher and the preacher grandfather.

The family lives in a small rudimentary cabin and the school teacher in a cute little 1950s home with all the luxuries of middle class including indoor plumbing and the electronics of the time. All are fascinating for Dolly and quite a contrast with her family's home.

The family and members of the community work together in various ways in order to allow the father to gift the mother with the only thing that she wants.

The real Dolly Parton makes cameo appearances as a woman of possibly questionable morals. Since our moments with her are very brief, her profession is never truly established.

Watch this brief YouTube video to get a better understanding and feel for this movie:

Alyvia Alyn Lind takes on the role of  Dolly. You might recognize this young actress for her recurring role in the program Young and the Restless. Other actors I recognized include Ricky Schroder, Jennifer Nettles (actually a country music singer) and Gerald McRaney.

The New York Post calls the movie cliche and "contrived, especially as it leads to a series of near-disasters that can only be erased by another series of convenient miracles." I will agree with that statement but add that I do not think that it matters. 

USA Today says, "enjoy this movie for the message, the music and Parton's benevolent spirit." . 

A Christmas of Many Colors is a beautiful faith-based film that is full of hope and joy and peril and yes, humor, too. It is perfect for Christmas viewing by all, and it is an emotional roller coaster that will have you laughing and crying. It is predictable at points but it is perfectly enjoyable and very entertaining. As I said earlier, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by me. It is the best Christmas movie I have seen in awhile.

At the real Dolly Parton says at the end of the movie, "Hold your families close at Christmas. Love and accept each other. And always be kind." Thanks, Dolly.

Have you seen A Christmas of Many Colors? Will you be adding it to your holiday viewing list?

Merry Christmas!

Oreo Limited Edition Music Box (Turntable) Cookie Tin

Oreo Music Box

As one who has just pulled out her vinyl records again after many years of them never seeing the light of day, Oreo's Limited Edition Music Box made me smile. As a novelty gift for someone with a turntable, I think it is brilliant though it will probably also make someone who does NOT own a turntable smile.

Oreo Music Box Gift Set
Place any Oreo cookie on the plastic turntable and it plays one of four songs from previous Oreo advertising campaigns. The manufacturer says that any Oreo brand cookie can be used and I assume that other brands that are the same size might work, too. The song changes each time you take a bite of the cookie. You can even record your own song or personal message.   I like the handsome tin advertising container that it comes in, too. It will allow you to safely pack the turntable away until next year. Add some new cookies and the fun will begin again.

The set includes the record player, collectible holiday tin, white fudge Oreos, double stuff Oreos and Oreo thin cookies. It requires 3AAA batteries. See how it works in this short video from Oreo:

Oreo Cookies TurntableUnfortunately, this item is a hot seller for Christmas 2018 and it is sold out at the moment. I put my name on the waiting list at Amazon but I have no idea if one will become available or at what price. I believe that it originally sold for $19.99 but what would you be willing to pay for a novelty gift item like this once it is sold out?

Meanwhile, I know of two places to check on line if you are trying to buy one of these Oreo cookie tins. Try Amazon by clicking right here and, as I did, you can sign up to be notified when one becomes available. Or maybe you will be lucky and find one available on the day you visit this page and click through. Next, you can try eBay by clicking right here. I do see some available there right now but they are out of my price range. However, you never know what might be in store for you visit the site.

Oreo Music Box collector's advertising tin

What do you think? Isn't this a cute item? Do you have someone you would like to buy it for? I am thinking it would make a great gift for my sister, my grown sons or my sister-in-law and it would also be a lot of fun as a hostess gift for the annual ugly Christmas sweater party, the office party and the bring-a-consumable-item gift exchange, too. With the resurgence of interest in vinyl, Oreo's timing could not be better. As Oreo says, "It's a sweet holiday treat!"

"Play that cookie music!"
