Way-Out Wednesday: Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems

Welcome to Way-Out Wednesday! And in case you're been wondering: why yes, today's title does come from a Notorious B.I.G. song, thanks for asking. My second choice would've been 1970's Funky Dollar Bill, Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow by George Clinton, so there you go. All this talk of money will make a helluva lot more sense in a second, I promise. The references to gangsta rap and funk? Probably not so much.


Since you haven't been truly terrorized by bizarre, unearthed vintage items from the evil clown underworld in a few weeks, today's your lucky day my friend, because I give you this:

Vintage Scary-Ass Clown Piggy Bank:


Could you imagine waking up in the middle of the night, rolling over and seeing THIS staring back at you? I'm repelled yet oddly want-y of this little guy!

Bank-o-doom is currently available on Etsy for a mere $12.50 from seller Luna Park Foundry, who has, in fact, quite a charming shop full of lovely vintage bits and not filled with, say, evil clowns of evilness, I promise.

My Triumphant Return!

Just a quick pop-in to say I'll be back to my regular blogging features as of tomorrow, right in time for Way-Out Wednesday! I've missed you all SO much and missed reading your blogs! Thanks to a most un-characteristically dramatic personal life crapstorm involving, but not limited to: a heart attack, double bypass surgery, multiple sclerosis, job loss, moving, and most recently, breast cancer, my commitments have been to my family and sadly my blog has taken a temporary breather.

(No need for concern- most of what's happened has NOT happened to me, but still, when it happens to your family, well, it might as well happen to you.)

Many thanks to those of you who dropped me a concerned line, phone call, telegram, secret note, (or whatever)- you guys rock so hard you don't even know it! Special thanks to my good pal and soul sista Cherry Bubbles of Past Life blog fame, who puts up with my flakiness and scatterbrained-ness for some unknown reason and deserves an award so grand and fabulous, it hasn't even been invented yet.

So no worries, mates. Tomorrow is another day (or whatever) and we'll be back on track with Way-Out Wednesday. See you then, loves!
