Friday Night Fab Five And One Bear

EDIT: My BFF's son is severely mentally disabled and attends an awesome school for special needs where he has a wonderful teacher. That teacher is currently in a contest to win a flip video camera to use in class and the one with highest amount of votes wins. If you have a second, please please please visit THIS LINK and click the name "Shannon Moree" to vote for Zach's teacher. You don't have to sign up for anything, just leave your name and e-mail addy (you won't get mailed anything but they need valid e-mails for the votes to count). Thank you so VERY much!


Hello everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 persons, places, things and/or other random stuff I am currently obsessed with. But we have a little business to attend to first!

Congratulations to...*drum roll*...Myrna a.k.a. daylily777! You've won my blogoversary bear, please e-mail me your mailing address and I'll get him sent out to you ASAP! :) (justaddglitter at

Now, on to tonight's Fab Five!

1. Ballad of Bilbo Baggins by Leonard Nimoy

Geeky awesome 60's counter culture at it's finest! Frodo Lives!

2. My New (to me) Monkees Button

My mom's friend found this in a thrift store and snagged it for me. A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

3. This Bag From Haut Totes

If you have not seen Haut Totes on Etsy, let me assure you that you will not be disappointed. And by the way, my birthday is in October, please feel free to begin buying gifts for me now. Start with this bag. ;)

4. Egg Salad Sandwiches

(Picture from La Vie Folle)

I detested egg salad when I was younger but it has since become one of my favorite things. Either that or the fact that there's some in the fridge and I'm currently amazingly hungry may be coloring my Fab Five choices. LOL (Oh geez, I am sooooo hungry right now...)

5. This Picture of Toot

Ah, the days when a cheap plastic hanger made your day...

That's it for this week's Fab Five! Congrats again to Myrna, thanks to everyone for your sweet comments on my blogoversary post and have a great weekend!

What have been your favorites this week?

Nora Johnson said...

Lovely post, Maggi, as always! And congrats to Myrna aka Daylily777!

btw I can't access Myrna's lovely site (blocked by Blogger!) so could I please ask a favor? Could you please pass on a message to Myrna that I've tried several times to leave comments at her place but no luck so far! I'll keep trying as I'm really looking forward to *seeing* her again sometime!

Many thanks! I'd be most grateful if you could do this!

Have a really super weekend!


PS love to Toots! x

Hey Hey with the Monkees! Oh gawd I lived for that show as a kid in the 70's! I had a mad crush on Mike Nesmith & then it was dashed one day when my Da asked me 'Why do you think Mike always wears a hat? eh because he's cold?'Nope' eh he wants to look cool?' NOpe!'Why then TELL me! 'because he's BALD'! on no no ...hmph I moved my focus onto Steve Austen after that!
Another Cutey shot of Toot. Toot and her magic hanger!

I really think kids don't need expensive nephews love

Faerie Moon Creations said...

Congrats to the lucky winner! That bear was so totally cute! Love your new faves this week? Discovering a new show "Life Unexpected," receiving a totally cute photo of me and my husband, eating a dreamy new banana dessert, munching on dark chocolate with raspberry pieces in it, and packaging up lots of sales this week to send out to happy (I hope) new owners! :)

Treacle said...

Ooooh...I love that tote! And who doesn't love a photo of Toot?

Nora Johnson said...

Hi Maggi!

Thanks so much for your reply! Yes, that's the very same link I use for Myrna's great blog. But I can't open her Comment Box link- I'm contacting Blogger but don't hold out much hope! In the meantime, would be most grateful if you could just let her know my problem when you next visit her page! Happens so often now with Blogger(I've lost my Followers list too!)I'm seriously considering changing to Wordpress...)

Hope you're having a better weekend than moi here in grey,rainy Andalucia!xx

xoxo LOLA:)
PS Love to beautiful Toots!And love yr great post - terrific fun!! x

Jocelyn said...

Love the button....Hey Hey we're the MONKEYS!!!! That bag is awesome and where do I buy that little Toot with her hanger...I really want one of those!!!

Smiles to you sweet friend!!! :-)

Corrie said...

You are awesome! Thanks for adding ZAch to the famous blogg - I'll let him know Aunty Maggi is a "super-staaaar"!

Laura C-dot said...

That video of Leonard Nimoy used to be a running joke in high school - we never failed to crack up laughing at it. I think it was the combination of Spock and Bilbo...

I love the bag, and I know my mum would love the Monkees button. :)

Gonna go make an egg salad sandwich now!

PS. I hope that teacher wins, shes gaining on the competition!
Toot is too adorable, as always.

Emily said...
