The Muppets Back Together Again Blog Hop

To show tribute to our love of Jim Henson's Muppets, this hop is dedicated to the Muppets Back Together Again!

Sit back and recall your youth of the 80's and remember your favorite Muppet! And we have retro blog candy!

  • two 8.5 x 11 tie died paper, two 12 x 12 Groovy Baby tied die paper, Just Add self-stick peace sign gems, Scrappy Cat Peace Sign, Peace, wit bling, and Jolee's by You Dimensional New York Sticker along with a yard of some tie-die ribbon to "tie" your project together!! What a groovy candy for all you special people. 

Be sure to remark on each of the hops along the way while we show you our favorite Muppet, with your remarks. Be sure to let us know who your favorite Muppet is. 

If you just happened upon my blog today, I don't want you to miss any of the show!!! The hop begins with Kari at Go visit Kari and check out her phenomenal project with the muppets!

NOW, it's on with the show with Scooter and Kermit being the emcee . . . just don't pay attention to the hecklers up there in the private booth - they're just too opinionated and OLD!!

My all time favorite Muppets show was Muppets Take Manhattan. I even think I when to see one of the movies at the theater. Here are my two favorite clips from the Muppets Take Manhattan.

Today I pay tribute to the one who has us coming back for more EVERY TIME!  Ms. Piggy!  This is a one sided card/plaque/sign that I created.  Now I know Piggy usually is a little pudgy, but just like EVERYONE else that got on Weight Watchers, Piggy had to get in on the action.  Doesn't she look good? Don't tell her though.  It'll go to her head which is ALREADY big enough!  I hope you enjoy.

The sentiment from K. Andrews Designs says, "The right shoe can change your life. Just ask Cinderella."
