Top 10 Unusual Car Decals and Stickers
Growing up I realised that car window stickers are not just cheap souvenirs of places, but a badge of honour! It showed how well travelled the car was, from beach towns, cities, theme parks and zoos, if you had a sticker from all of them people respected you.

Top 10 Creative and Unusual Flip Flops
When it comes to footwear there is one thing I can’t stand wearing and that is flip-flops. Also called jandles, go-aheads, slappies, slides and step-ins people call them all sorts of things, but I only call them one….pointless! But I am being too harsh?

And I also enjoyed all the fun American football themed things around the walls and ceiling, so I thought I would try to find some of my own…
