Pink Saturday PS 9-29

I was going to leave my Moonlight Party post up for awhile but I COULD JUST NOT STAY AWAY from  How Sweet The Sound  PinK SaTurDaY!  First, I was like .... Then, I was like .... I decided to go with ... Just had to share Lucille Ball with Lucie, 1952 What fun - a PINK cardboard kitchen! Happy Pinkness fellow hoppers ~ Red and pink carnation print dress, 1955 How Sweet The Sound

Moonlight Party Under the Big Top and Hop Along Friday

This was an oil on canvas I created some years ago.  It was one of those fun pieces, where I experimented with colors and techniques.  I began with a white underpainting.  When the other colors were applied, I drew in loops and swirls.  Finally, the flat circus characters were added in. A cartoonized ferris wheel located outside of Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington. Clown cutie pictured above was a thrift shop rescue earlier this month.  A sextet of clownies have joined the party too!                             Since I am on a "clown roll" - I located these inmates on (all three are bidding around $5-$6).  A surefire way to develop coulrophobia (fear of clowns).  *queue screechy music* Creepy #1 is offered through GW New Mexico - Albuquerque Creepy #2 aka Bozo the Clown hails from Northwest Ohio Creepy #3 is from GW serving Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa Look who has made an appearance!  Fashion

Friday's Frock and I Am Proud of My Size link up

I'm entering this Apt. 9 skirt ($7.99) in Thrift Town's quarterly "What A Find!" contest under the Fashion Item category. I also picked up this round Conair brush for $1.49 and a darling box of watercolor notecards for $1.99.  The brush I will soak in ammonia to clean.  The notecards, along with other items such as lotion gift sets and lap quilts will go for Home Instead Senior Care.  You pick a tag from the Christmas tree and fill the items on the list.   Linking with newly discovered (to me)  Nearsighted Owl  - I am a sassy size 12! The Nearsighted Owl's mission: All sizes are beautiful! Don't be ashamed of your number or keep it from living your life and doing what you love. There is no perfect or wrong size. It doesn't determine our worth and nobody has the right to judge someone's health by their size. So let's show the world that every size can be happy and that we are not ashamed!

Oops, I did it again ...

joined a photography challenge, that is.  Mike WJ of  Too Many Mornings  and Ziva of  Ziva Inferno  are hosting the 30 Days of Photographs III.  I missed last year's challenge by one month.  I have found it is much, much easier to join in established challenges, rather than host my own.  There are a few rules, but nothing too onerous. This is the extent of my tablescaping - claim to fame, nearly all were thrift shop rescues. On to my hospice thrift shop finds - fishy glass serving plate ($2.50), Two blue shirts (one short-sleeved NWT, one sleeveless) total $5.50, and The Crafter's Garden  by Joni Prittie (1993).

Pink Saturday - the Puyallup Way

The following PINK images were captured at the Puyallup Fair (aka Western Washington State Fair) for PS 9-22. Post Alley in Seattle, Washington. Thrift shop finds this week ~ The lot above totaled $7 with pink tags being $1 and half off white tags - black twin sheet and black pillowcase, two frames, a tuxedo bear, a pair of black stretch jeans and The Vintage Book of Contemporary American Poetry   (1990). This next lot was approx. $20 with a pair of black stretch jeans (not shown), CDs, ceramic clown ($2) and clothes organizer ($3.99). I was so jazzed about that organizer, I installed it the same day and went through the clothing that hung in dry cleaner bags.  Now I can see them all in one place - I like the blue and yellow flowered front.
