A Little Bit of Blue Treasury

My Shabby Shoe Stretchers are in this very pretty treasury: A Little Bit of Blue . After Dec. 31 at 3am this link will no longer work so visit and click now ! Thanks :-)

p.s. I wish I could figure out how to capture the entire Treasury. When I select the image, it disables the scrolling function :-( Help needed !

Completing the Outfit

To promote our party wear collections, April Evening and RetroThreads (me) are collaborating. We both have a "Party Time Glamour" section and we've added a link to each other's sections in item descriptions. Her shop has lovely vintage gloves which she embellishes with vintage trims. I have a variety of items like gowns, blouses, shoes and purses. Take a look at April Evening's Party Time Glamour section and mine, RetroThreads's Party Time Glamour section.

World's ugliest jacket:front

An idea I've had for several years is finally going to happen. I always wanted a website devoted to nothing but showcasing the horrible clothing I run across in thrift stores. Rather than honor these items with monetary value, I simply take a pic, tag them "uglyduds" and post them here on my blog. More "gems" to come ! Stay tuned, and enjoy this beauty while you're waiting :-)

Red and Green Plaid Taffeta Skirt

Ready to wear to your next holiday party, that is, if you are very tall. This skirt is almost as tall as I am ! The fabric is that wonderful, rustling taffeta that makes a statement. If you're not tall enough for the skirt as is, it would make a great dress or holiday home decor. For more photos, check it out here.
