My digital personal assistant is named Thing Addams for a reason.
Amongst other things, I have it set up to text me the YouTube link to various cartoons based on various catch phrases.
I want my own Thing.

This was what I was looking at when I accidentally clicked the photo post on my phone.
What are we looking at?:
A corner of my coffee table/workbench/supply storage, the headless dolls are a part of a project I’ll finish someday
On the floor, my pink lint brush, Tinkerbell and fairy friend dolls, a Strawberry Shortcake princess doll, and a pumpkin bucket of toys my niece can play with when I watch her, so she’ll leave MY toys alone.
The Strange History and Mystery of the Ouija Board
Does the Ouija Board really communicate with spirits or is it just a harmless game?The first advertisements started to appear in papers by 1891: “Ouija, the Wonderful Talking Board”. The board was described as magical because it answered questions “about the past, present and future with marvelous accuracy”. It’s price was $1.50.The Ouija board (pronounced Wee-ja) is a flat board marked with the letters of the alphabet, numbers 0-9, and the words “yes”, “no”, and “hello”, “goodbye”. The invention of the original design in still unknown.The Ouija board was, at first, regarded as a harmless parlor game. It’s popularity grew out of the strong American 19th century obsession with spiritualism - the belief that the living are able to communicate with the dead.The first patent was granted in 1891 to Elijah J. Bond as the inventor. Bond’s sister-in-law, Helen Peters (who was reportedly a “strong medium”), is credited for naming the board. While using the board, they asked what it should be named. The word “Ouija” was spelled out and when asked what that meant, the board replied, “Good Luck.”To this day, mainstream religions and some occultists have associated the use of the Ouija board with the threat of demonic possession and have cautioned their followers not to use them.
Many believe that evil spirits, disguising themselves as deceased friends or family members, can trick the users of the board and unwittingly invite “them” into their homes. To be rid of such hauntings, Ouija “experts” advise either to burn the board or dispose of it in a lake since spirits supposedly cannot cross water.
"Pull out the witch board, kiddos! We need to ask Grandma Poppy a question!"
I couldn’t help myself, and picked(heh) up more of these cute cake toppers.
Found some vintage cupcake decor at the rummage today, I may go back for some turkeys. I am IN LOVE with the witch and owl. Mayhaps there will be more of them in the future.
