I see the Cactus Candy Company has new single serving size packaging.
Now you can buy 1 small hard candy all by itself. And they will ship, too!
Does this look delicious to you? Why should I post a link to a candy company without offering my readers the yelp-like opportunity to review the product first, right here, in the comments. And since you probably haven’t tasted this single piece of candy in it’s own package, all you can review is the packaging of course. So much packaging for one little piece of candy!
I could tell you they come from an interior design blog that looks to inspire people to better design, but then you would have to assume that there is something about these cactus chairs that is inspirational and clearly that is not so.
This one is yellow. That is an inspirational color for modern home decor? You could have a yellow stove top to match or a yellow kitchen table?
This one compresses when you sit on it. Maybe it’s not so inspirational for your interior design but it is very inspirational for your photography. I think I like this photo of a headless man squishing a cactus ottoman. I’m now inspired to take headless photos with squishy objects. Yes!
I have made frosting by mixing a few tablespoons of fresh-squeezed prickly pear juice into confectioner’s sugar. It makes a nice magenta-colored glaze when dribbled over oatmeal or sugar cookies and has that subtle flavor.
Is it October yet? Can I start posting about cactus costumes yet?
This one is a professional mascot costume, which means it’s expensive and probably not what you would want for Halloween.
I’m not particularly clear on who would want a cactus mascot costume, except maybe a cactus store. That’s us! In fact, I’ll bet Keith would love to dress up in this as the store’s mascot, and hang out on San Pablo Ave. waving down potential customers.
Well, it’s finally October, and the cactus costumes come out to play. But what do you do if you want a cactus themed dress-up party, and you don’t have inflatable cactuses (inflatable cacti?) available for inflating up as decoration?
Why, you go to the Inflatable Cactus Page and buy one, for only £5.86 each. Uh oh, I guess that means you need to be in Great Britain.
Halloween is coming soon, so I better pack in a few more cactus costumes for fun before it’s too late. I wonder if you’ll notice next year if I reuse some of these?
This one is frightening, indeed. A cactus head in a buffet! What, no sausages?@?!
And I see that Misty Garrick Miller has uploaded her cactus costume photos onto flickr finally. Who’s Misty? Why, she’s the one in the costume below. A very clever use of yarn to simulate cactus flowers.
And in case you were wondering, here’s a picture of Misty at work in her costume.
You know, it might be easier if you just googled cactus costume images yourself. You know, cut out the middleman. Hey, wait, that’s me! I’m the middleman in this transaction. Maybe I shouldn’t be giving away my secrets that easily. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone about the magic search engine called google, OK?
More Cactus Costumes from the internets! I don’t own these! Not the costumes and not the pictures! I don’t sell them either! Enjoy!
Holy Cow it’s the same costume as yesterday, but in Adult size! And this time we have a link to a website that sells them and has it in stock. For a very reasonable $90. Well, maybe reasonable is a relative term.
I think we could get that one for Keith to wear at the store on a regular basis. At least on the weekends.
Burda Style’s cactus costume comes with a story.
When I asked my son what he wanted to be for Halloween, he said, “a saguaro cactus.” ?? Sure, no problem 😉 lol! It took a whole lot of fiberfill to stuff the channels. A big hit though, he loved it! Only one person asked him if he was Larry the Pickle from Veggie Tales.
Finally we have another little kid in a cactus costume. A baby! And the costume is available for sale on ebay. Quality!
Every year I see the quality of the top cactus costumes in the country gets better, so if you want to be featured in next years post, or maybe in a November followup, send along your photos ASAP!
The Canapé Cactus sofa and matching Tattoo ottoman feature a graphical print of the spiny succulent on bi-elastic fabric. The seating set is made of high-density structural polyurethane foam over an internal steel frame.
So that’s a couch. Really!
Ottomans are interesting too, especialloy if you scatter a few of them around your empty room.
While you might think twice about taking a seat at first, I think it actually looks pretty cushy!
Random Cactus cupcakes posting. My sister posted these to my Facebook timeline but I don’t know the original source. Are they for sale? I don’t know! Is there a recipe? Still don’t know. Delicious? I assume so.
Since my sister is vegan, do you think that means these are vegan? Since they were posted on facebook do you think that means they’re viral? Since they’re Cactus do you think I can name all the species?
Nice use of fabric. I wonder who the fabric designer is, and where we can buy the fabric, and if we bought the fabric what we could do with it – would you buy a cactus print muffler from us? a cactus print finger warmer? a cactus print fabric square? a cactus print laptop bag?
