Vintage Black Friday and a Blogiversary!

My vintage booth hussy Helga pitched a raging fit
to let me allow her to participate in
Vintage Black Friday
over at Gypsy Brocante, so to keep peace in the family, 
I allowed the old embittered floozy to play dress up just this one time. 
If I don't cater to her every whim, she rearranges my booth vignettes while I'm gone, 
so what choice did I have?

There ya go, you brazen manipulator, you.

You'll recall this is Helga in her more genteel state...

Happy Helga?
You likely grossed out all of blogville 
with your over-the-top, ghoulish frippery.
Ahhh well, at least now my booth finery is safe for yet another day!

To see all the other spooky, elegant, classic vintage black, head on over to

And now for something completely different (Python reference for Tom!)....

One of the absolute sweetest, more talented 
and heroically tireless bloggers I know celebrated her
on October 17! My birthday!


Just look at that pretty young bride and her handsome hubby!

We're all invited to her big
so head on over and get the scoop on how to enter her celebratory giveaway!

trash talk said...

"I love to go swimmin' with bowlegged women and swim between their legs"...what...wrong post? Oops, my bad.
Helga needs to learn who's in charge...I bet you could whip her with one arm tied behind your back.
