What's that Loved Ones? Summer is almost over? How can that be? I was just getting into swimsuit shape! Isn’t that JUST the way? Guess another year has gone by denying people the pleasure of the Helen-kini!
|Dang it, Mary Lou, I told you not to bet on Helen to show!|
But summer must be winding down since we just went to the Kentucky State Fair:
My daughter inside an inflatable colon - the lighting is so flattering we decided we should have professional photos taken inside giant body parts from now on.
And, of course, being in Kentucky, there was the mandatory photo op with "the Colonel"
Juggling Elvis on a unicycle. 'Nuff said.
Pork Butt on a stick. Even alien visitors
don't try to hide their elation over that!
And with Labor Day is just around the corner, it's time to put away the white shoes.
|Remember that no white after Labor Day rule applies to fashion, sweetie, not wine. You'll thank me for that reminder when you have children of your own.|

Anyway, the point is I haven’t posted any vintage finds in a while. That’s mostly because I haven’t been buying as much as I used to. I find things but either have no space or no need for them. But there have been some things I either couldn’t leave behind or decided I would make the space for:
|Vintage style glasses and plastic prize poodle - perfect for Rednesday!|
|Look a those faces, how could you leave them behind?|
|At last, a vintage skirt with real character! And a teeny waist. How did they do it?|
|Another can't resist item - Kokeshi!|
|Purple full length gloves! I think I actually squealed when I spotted them. And PINK earrings covered in rhinestones? You wouldn't have left them on the table, either. The photos were cheap and had a great story, they reminded me of someone....hmmmm.|
Helen is taking a couple of days off this week then again on Labor Day... but that doesn't mean I won't have a new post up. Come back in a few days for the annual ritual of
Joining Wow Us Wednesday because - WOW, I mean, just WOW!
