I am thankful for the Fall like weather we are still enjoying as it is a sunny 53 degrees right now, but with Thanksgiving around I had been looking around for inspiration for my table and thought I share 10 Turkey themed party trays.

This clever critter was made using sliced pre-sliced cheese with an olive cut in half for the eyes and a bit of red bell pepper for the neck piece.  Further details at A Beautiful Mess.

This tray by Also, That's It used two types of cheese, Salami, Pretzel Crackers, peppercorns for the eyes and a pistachio for the nose was inspired by the above cheese tray.

This colorful fruit tray by Not My Own with orange pieces, strawberries and an apple with a bit of decorated construction paper and a toothpick would make for healthy dessert.

Gecko Technology in A Bra

Photo:  Boris Klusmeyer - Reptile Database

When most people think of Geckos these days they are probably thinking of the lovable reptilian mascot with the Austrailian accent for Geico, but what you might not be aware of is this little guy has sticky toe pads capable of supporting the weight of two humans while still allowing it to quickly scurry up walls or across a ceiling.

This same technology is now being used in a strapless bra to keep it in place with "Geck Teck" Pads that uses the same properties as pads on a Gecko's foot to cling to the skin, but can easily be pulled off without any sticky residue.

The bra is by Kellie K. Apparel  and was the brain child of Engineer Dr. Anthony Roy after his wife rejected wearing garment because of her strapless bras worked well.   

Here is more on the technology from the Kickstarter Campaign:

I think it would be cool to have a high-tech strapless bra, but alas, they don't have it in my size.  

I learned of this garment through a blog a follow Sew Well and she has an interview with one of the designers.

Kellie K Designs currently has two designs available through a Kickstarter campaign that is open for the next few days.  Below is a video.

Mini Singing Skeleton

One to file under things you don't see every day.

 Actually, the skeleton is a puppet, but for most of the time you don't see the strings it is a bit realistic, making it both cool and creepy all at the same time.

I had hoped to snap pictures of Trick or Treaters for tonight's final post for Countdown for Halloween, but life had other plans.

Instead is a video from Top10Archive on Youtube of a few Halloween Don'ts Costumes which might have seen funny and clever to the young people came up with them, but they will regret in 10 years when the reality of their choices sinks in.

Thanks stopping by and be sure to check out the other participants in this year's Countdown to Halloween and hope everyone has wonderful evening.
