|"Yard-sale" Larry and Bozo|
Larry and I both have too many "collections." We like vintage stuff. I like old pottery, vintage Corning Ware, scarves, handbags and of course YARN.
|Out-of-control Yarn collection|
Larry collects old guitars, thrift shop paintings, too many records and vintage toys. He will often alter the look of some of these toys.
I have a child mannequin for my knit and crochet projects in my yarn room. One day I walked in and Larry had added a crazy clown doll face. Scared me when I entered the room!

Another time, Larry was washing the jacket of his ventriloquist dummy, Jerry. Jerry was sitting in our laundry room, staring at me when I walked in. STARTLED.
|Jerry, waiting for his clean clothes|
Jerry usually sits on our dresser, along with my knitted Slug (thanks, Suzette), a very distressed unclothed Woody Woodpecker toy and a broken Robbie the Robot model. Larry had recently aired out his Halloween wig. This is where I found the wig yesterday.
