Britney...Sweetie...


Train wreck! Did you see the VMA's??? Britney was HORRRRIBLE (shudder, shudder). Between the really bad lip-syncing (there were times where I think she forgot she was supposed to be "singing"), the whore garb, weird male dancer crotch-grabbing, creepy hair-plug looking extensions, Mom gut, and spacey half-ass dancing, I was so embarrassed to watch...yet I could not look away. Funny how that goes.

Speaking of train wrecks. Did you hear the crickets when Sara Silverman was doing the opening?? EEK. Painful.

Ok, down to business. I scored some great flea market finds this morning. I have my system down pat now. Funny I am always drawn to Japanese salt and pepper shakers and hankies. I don't mean to be-- I try to keep an open mind, really. And I didn't intend for the whole pink and red theme. It just happened this way. You can see more pictures in my Flickr Set.


Furthermore, this is my 100th (!) post! I was trying to figure out what to do, and in the effort to secure a few more than TWO comments from my last contest, I will share the wealth of my cute vintage finds instead of making something. Thanks to everyone who reads my lil' sagas of nonsense on a regular basis (and those newcomers too!).
I am snitching from Heather and Colleen a bit on this next part (thanks for the idea, girls). Comment on my blog, and you will be entered to win some of my vintage goodness! Link to my contest on your blog, and you will get two more chances to win. Just email me with your blog link to let me know.

For your consideration, I will be including a smattering of at least EIGHT items, mostly from today's conquest (and definitely what's shown below), maybe 1 or 2 from previous ventures. I'll pick a name at random on Wednesday, September 12 (Q's 22 month bday, ha). Thanks, and comment away!

Sounds cool! Flea markey finds are the best. I've been having a hard time feeling sorry for Britney lately. I've heard that her performance was great... without her. There are Brit impersonators that could have done a better job!

Utah Grammie said...

Found your blog - and my name is Colleen - so I think I'll put your link on my blog! I LOVE anything vintage (maybe because I am vintage!) Have a fun wek!
Colleen
