The Sassiest Unicorn in all the Land

Standard

I love vintage things. I love them and I buy them and, because I have no desire to be featured on a future episode of Hoarders, I list most of them in my Vintage shop on Etsy.

I found this vintage tea towel yesterday.

“Lion and Unicorn”

The lion is all RAWR and stuff but the unicorn – he is fabulous.

He is the sassiest unicorn in all the land. His name is Frank. Frank doesn’t have time for this crap and he wants you to know that.

Double Unicorn Success Club

Standard

So, I was at a favorite thrift this morning. As I walked down their figurine aisle, I spotted something amazing, and then I spotted its mate.

Double Unicorn, WHAT?

Then, I turned them around.

Oh. My. Rainbowlicious Goodness. Double Unicorn Rainbow Success Club, yes indeedy.

I knew I’d have to pass these along to The Bloggess as they look like they sort of belong to her. I hope she understands that I mean that in the best possible of ways.

(Also, great timing – she just announced the paperback release of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. See post below.)

Fondue Forks as an Art Piece

Standard

I love fondue. I love the kitsch factor of fondue parties from the 70’s. I can’t help but smile when I see vintage pots in shops. I can’t help buying all the vintage fondue fork sets I see when I’m shopping. It’s a sad, sad addiction.

This is one of my favorite sets – the stand makes a simple housewares item into a sculptural piece.
