I only know TWO girls from Oklahoma (named Ninny & Christine, who also happen to be sisters) but I'm not talking about them right now. I'm referring to these three girls who came to live with me back in August. I did NOT arrange them like this! Can you believe that poor Kissing Santa is about to get beaned with a giant snowball? And that Minnie is gonna get clobbered by a smaller (yet, for her, just as deadly) snowball? Mickey gets the worst of it--HE'S in line to get whacked over the head with a shovel. WHO LET THESE GIRLS GONE BAD IN MY HOUSE??!
My gosh, the violence that goes on in this house when I'm away! Flamingos breaking other flamingo's legs and cute little dolls throwing snowballs at Santa, for pete's sake!
Here are our stockings all hung up and ready to be filled with candy and toys. Yeah right. You will note the one that says "Chris", which is now officially an antique just like its owner--the year I was born and in which it was made is embroidered on the other side. 1970! Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!! I kill myself sometimes.
(I really think that the stocking looks pretty good for actually being 60 years old, although I can't say that about myself . . .)
Remember that Block Party I went to in Slidell a couple of Fridays ago? I took two display boxes--this one is packed full of costume jewelry and a couple vintage watches. Fabulous!
The other box had all kinds of stuff I thought would be of interest to men AND women--tobacciana, shaving kits, WWII Army stuff, crystals, even a Playboy gift set. Wow!!!
And here's what I sold:
One stinking 100 year old Kodak camera (it's in the men's box next to the REALLY POPULAR Prince Albert tobacco tin). Twenty bucks.
Oh well, Mike and I had a nice evening together even though we couldn't afford to drink too much since the caterer was charging $4 for, literally, a big thimbleful of wine. I'm not kidding!
On the upside, I had my biggest month ever since I started at the antique mall in April of 2008. I made enough to pay our car note. Woo hoo!!
On the downside, that same car's automatic transmission blew up last week.
