A Home-Grown Portmanteau

The Daughter of SPOGG turns eight years old today, and has decorated the house with a variety of thematic signs (it's a kitten-centric party, if you must know).

Said child invented a lovely portmanteau on a sign illustrating Objects in a Kitten's Room: "excessories."

Excessories are extra (or perhaps excessive) accessories that pile up in the bedrooms of little girls, much to the annoyance of their mothers.

With that fine word, the portmanteau contest is closed. We have about 50 entries. Voting will come soon, so stay tuned!
