  1. Oh sign me up! I will have to start looking for black around here - but I bet I can find a few things! Sounds like great fun!

  2. This sounds like fun! Count me in! I am going to have to start looking for all my vintage black items. This is going to be hard!

    Thanks for your lovely comments you left on my blog. I have been working on new jewelry lately and I much have 30 finished pieces that need to be photographed. I wish I had a magic wand that did that part for me, because taking photos and editing can be quite tedious.

    I went to a couple of thrift stores and was looking at the bedding today and came across a pretty pink ruffled sheet. It was Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic for Target and looked new - there were still crease marks in the sheets like it had just been unfolded out of the package. I hunted around and found the matching fitted sheet, two pillow cases and a white dust ruffle! All for the grand total of 4.99! I already washed, dryed and put it on my bed! I will have shabby chic dreams tonight!

  3. WOW Jill....all of this news is fabulous!!
    Love love the new fresh yet still you!! I would love to join in your Vintage Black Friday parties...will have to dig deep to play every week...we'll see how it goes....sounds like a ton of fun!!
