Hello Blogland!! Hope everyone’s been having a wonderful weekend! Mine certainly has been BUSY!! Managed to get in some quality thrifting and yardsaling on Friday-more to come later as I’m learning to do collages in Picmonkey! I made some awesome scores.
Stopped in Joann Fabrics last week to pick up some more fabric for daughter’s quilted wall hanging. I was helping a young girl (I know the store better than the employees-LOL) find some fabric for a project when out of the corner of my eye I spied THIS:
Stopped DEAD in my tracks in AWE!!! Be still my beating heart because I love me some tacky christmas kitsch. Pulled the bolt out to get a better look and was just gobsmacked with the trashtasticness. Because NOTHING says Christmas like half-nekkid teenage boys in Santa Hats!!
Behold the close-ups:
I immediately thought of the fabulous Miss Helga Von Trollop and knew she would totally get a charge out of this and make something utterly divine with it. I knew I had to get some for her. Helga–this is going to wending its way to New Zealand for your holiday decorating!
The ladies at the cutting table and I (all of us of “a certain age”) hooted and cackled over the fabric for a good ten minutes. We all noticed how “young” these boys are and how , um, “anatomically correct” they are! Still trying to figure out WHERE the guy that designed this mind was….ok in the gutter!
Now for some minimally dignified stuff!!! This is what I wore Friday thrifting and running errands. Saturdays outfit isn’t fit for public viewing (cleaning and gardening).
I dressed for the miserable hot weather and ease of changing for trying on clothes. The thrifts are pretty bare right now, I must say. I did manage to find a couple of things on my need list.
Here’s the clothing I thrifted:
No Miss Kae pix today–she’s been in a “mood” lately and all I can get are butt shots. Diva’s are known to be temperamental! I think she’s jealous because I posted a picture of Mr.Bill, the little hussy!
Have a great rest of the weekend!
