Aqua Blue Heaven Friday: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Jail Time.

Welcome to Aqua Blue Heaven Friday!


Don't you hate it when the last song you heard on the car radio gets stuck in your head for eternity? That happened to me this morning and you know what I learned? I learned there are apparently 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover. You could

1.) Just slip out the back, Jack
2.) Make a new plan, Stan
3.) Don't need to be coy, Roy
4.) Hop on the bus, Gus
5.) Just drop off the key, Lee

Really, Simon and Garfunkel? That is your sage advice? Those are my options?! Well that sucks. Thanks for all your no help, jerks. My advice would be a little more fruitful, I think. I'd suggest something more along the lines of "Just stab him in the head, Fred" or "Superglue his junk to his belly, Nelly" but apparently you have to be a slightly depressing, brillo-haired, Hobbit of a folk-singing duo in order to give advice, so ignore my suggestions. If you're planning on leaving your lover- you know, or taking a vacay, whatevs- then perhaps this would be more appropriate (plus, it wouldn't lead to 20 to life or becoming someone named Big Shirley's bitch):


This super cute Vintage 60's Aqua Floral Suitcase is new old stock and has never been used. (Bonus!) Suitcase is currently available on Etsy from seller Beppie Bags. (Although, I still recommend to just "Set his trailer on fire, McGuire".)

Way-Out Wednesday: Like A Gay Tarantella


Aww, hearts really *will* "play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay,
like a gay tarantella."
Dean Martin sure knew a thing or two about a thing or two. Especially about lovin'. Sweet, sweet lovin'. Big ol' manly lovin' with Mike Brady sideburns, long hot pokers, tousled Farrah Fawcett hair and a side of sizzling crotch beans. Ahh, amore.


Many thanks to Etsy seller The Spectrum Vintage for offering this awesomely hilarious Vintage 70's Apron/Mitt/Chef's Hat Simplicity Pattern #6440.

Atomic Tuesday: Time Keeps On Slippin', Slippin', Slippin'...

Welcome to Atomic Tuesday!


First, let me say that I have no idea why "Prints Charming Sunday" didn't post this past Sunday! Or why I didn't even notice it until today. (Oh wait, I can answer that one: because I've been distracted by shiny things lately and not notice-y of things.) Still, I blame blogger for it's malfunction-iness, and like I always say: always try to blame someone else for crap going wrong when you can. It's the right thing to do.

Second, since time sucks for me these days- as in: I have none of it lately (OK, more like I'm just exceptionally bad at managing it), I thought it apropos to do a clock theme for today! I do so have a thing for kitschy vintage clocks--come to think of it, have I been showing off too many clocks lately? Are you bored with all the clock action? If so, the staff here at the Girl Can't Help It want you to feel free to lodge any complaints. Management wants you to feel secure in knowing all letters will be read and action will be taken against complaints... Which probably means no action will be taken at all. In fact, I'd make sure your grammar and punctuation are correct or else your letters will be published for public pointing, laughing and extreme mocking.

Onward to our clocktacular Atomic Tuesday theme!

(All clocks are currently available from Etsy sellers- click each link to get to each one. Obviously.)


Vintage Howard Miller Clock. (So sputniky!)


Vintage Seth Thomas Atomic Clock. (It's yellow! But looks like an orange slice!)


Vintage Elgin of Germany Clock. (Avocado green! Fat and stumpy little hour hand! Oh. Sorry. "Fat and stumpy" isn't PC. I meant to say it's "vertically and weight-challenged.")
