ZootSuitMama had a giveaway and gave EVERYONE who entered a prize! Since my current giveaway isn't generating much enthusiasm I may just wind up doing the same thing, saying thank you to those of you who take the time to stop by on a regular basis. Also, there are a couple newbies who deserve a big GRACIAS, CHICA, too. Anyway, I'll see.
Miz ZeeEssEmm sent me a very cute plush flamingo--he's a Ty and I'm sure he has an official name but I always like to name toys "Fred" that I consider to be male. First boyfriend, made an impression, yada yada yada. She ALSO included a fabulous Florida ashtray. Of course both of these wonderful items are heading for La Condo in about a week to join the flock.
Unfortunately for Fred, the one flamingo that hasn't made it yet to Florida, Miss THANG, took umbrage with this interloper's arrival and broke his little leg (which is really really hard to do when you're plush). Miss THANG rules the roost around here but hopefully the flock at La Condo will be more accommodating to poor Fred.
I think Miss THANG feels she's special since she was included when I purchased some rather pricey Red Wing pottery last year when I was spending money like a drunken sailor. Bee-atch.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the weather holds out this evening for the Olde Towne Slidell Antiques District Block Party. I'm taking two cases packed full of beautiful costume jewelry along with some small items like an antique Kodak camera, sterling WWII-era captain's bars, a vintage lady's Bulova watch, various interesting pieces of tobacciana including a beautiful .830 sterling Swedish cigarette case, etc. etc.
Happy Friday, y'all!
