Totally unrealistic depiction of a gas station stop. No man would ever ask for directions.

What was THAT? It's Helen zipping through just long enough to refuel!


They even started the Olympics while I was away - here's what they would look like if Helen designed the uniforms -- or was allowed to participate (note the lady in back who isn't even sure what to do and may shoot that arrow through her hat - that's Helen)

New Flash, Loved Ones, unbeknownst to Helen when Helen isn't around apparently the world keeps spinning without her! 


You mean time doesn't stand still when Helen is away? Say it isn't so!

So she came back from family fun time...

Where my fab cousin Patje came me THIS footstool!  Jealous? Of course you are.

to a lot of catching up to do and very little time to do it if she plans to hit the World's Longest Yard Sale tomorrow. And Loved Ones, Helen DOES plan to hit it, and hit it hard!





I promise to take photos and share finds when I return. 


Matador Schmatador, there's a whole field full of vintage goodness to snap here.

In the meantime remember Helen's yard sale motto: If you value your fingers, you'll back Away from that -- it's MINE! 


Words to live by, my friends. Words to live by.

  1. Hello Helen:
    Well, better to just have a quick flash of inspiration from you than nothing at all. Life is dull without you, so please hurry back soon to delight us with all the delicious goodies, obtained for a song, which you have begged, borrowed, robbed, stolen and, perhaps, bought on your travels. We fear the lengths that you will go to to get your hands on the retro delights which catch your eye....we would never stand in your way we value our lives too much!!Hurry back soon!!!

    1. You jest about the robbed and stolen yard sale finds BUT last year a man stopped me in no uncertain terms from photographing anything in his booth... turns out the previous year some took a pic then showed up with the cops claiming his 'finds' were actually stolen property!

  2. Oh don't even start me on Olympic uniforms, if they don't have a floral headband or crown, they're crap. I do heartily approve of your archery design - I think there should be an Olympics for people who have never played any sport before. Thank you for taunting me with the gorgeous footstool and the "no man would ask directions" pic;))) xo

    1. LOL on those Olympic outfits - I am sorry but all of the divers, gymnasts and the girl swimmers and volleyball players all seem to have an unrelenting case of the wedgies! That's what you get when fashion designers are in charge, maybe?

    1. Oh Diana I would never mud wrestle for anything - it's too dry here! Kick some dust up? I just might.

    1. Thanks Margie! We used to have a crossbow and a target in our back yard when we were kids. WHAT WERE MY PARENTS THINKING?

  10. I love that color coordinated matchy girl on the clock. I wonder if they have guns pointed at her because they are offended by her fashion choices?
