Aqua Blue Heaven Friday: I've Got A Heart-On For You.

For this Aqua Blue Heaven Friday, I found something that's not not only aqua, but Valentine's Day-friendly! Not an easy feat, that, finding something aqua and heart-y. (Plus, I really was just looking for an excuse to pull off a borderline-filthy title, so there's that.)

Get a heart-on (heh heh) with this Vintage 50's Aqua Heart Print Dress, currently available from Etsy seller Adeline's Attic Vintage:

(I love the dorky little happy faces and the grumpy bunny-looking hearts.)

Way-Out Wednesday: Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

First, let me half ass-edly apologise for skipping yesterday's Atomic Tuesday. I was having a torrid and tempestuous love affair with my accountant for a couple hours and writing a blog after all that hot and heavy action is not possible. Well, OK, it's partly true. I was at my accountant's office yesterday. Gettin' my taxes on. Yeah, not so exciting anymore, is it? And when I got home, I was beat. Game over. I was spent, like yesterday's nickel for a shoeshine and pastrami on rye with a deli barrel pickle on the side. Or whatever. Make up your own damn film noir similes.

Next week we'll be back to our regular themes. Unless my accountant calls me back in for more ... number crunching. Ooh-la-freaking-la.

But there IS today! Yes, today I will make it all up to you on this fine Way-Out Wednesday, my little cherub bottoms, with another Holiday Horror: Valentine's Day edition.

Behold, the most romantic and charming Vintage Valentine's Day Card you could possibly bestow upon your love muffin:

If you have to fake a suicide attempt in order to get your object of affection to agree to a date with you, you're doing it wrong. Unless you happen to like psychotic, bat-crazy nutjobs, then it's your lucky day!

Prints Charming Sunday: What A Jackass!

It's the last Prints Charming Sunday for the month! You know what that means, don't you?! ... Well, nothing. Sorry to disappoint with a fake sense of "something good is gonna happen!". Though it feels like something cool should happen, doesn't it? But no.

I figured since I've been showing alot of novelty prints for women lately, it's time the menfolk ... you know, should.. get their dues ... have their day in the sun ...get a mad dope shout-out, yo. Whatever. I fail at popular expressions of teens these days and their love of their jazz records and Tab and Fonzie. Or whatever it is that people say and like these days. (It's painful how hip I am, no?)

So for today's Prints Charming Sunday, it's all about the novelty print- for a man, baby! How stinkin' awesome is this Vintage 50's Donkey Novelty Print Men's Shirt, currently available on Etsy from fab seller Fabs Gabs:

Donkeys? Hell yeah they are! "Burros", to my south of the border amigos. "Jackasses" to my fellow sailor-talking, lovers of swears!
