Friday Favorites: Stuff I, Myself, Like

8 Mar

Cute overload by Vintage Y'all.

Lovely in Lilac by Vintage Y’all.

Happy Friday, y’all! And welcome to Spring, if it’s arrived in your part of the world.

Here’s this week’s roundup:

On Vintage Y’all, Southern expat Kathie takes cute vintage stuff, adds a little fairy dust, and makes it even cuter. I’ve got ever-expanding collection of vintage glassware and china, and her pics are just feeding my addiction. But in a good way.

And on to vintage of a different sort…Have y’all seen the weird and wonderful collection of old photos at Black and WTF? Some of them are real head scratchers. Also, bonus points for the blog’s name!

WTF, indeed.

WTF, indeed.

Raising Arizona ranks close to the top of my Funniest Movies EVER list. So imagine my delight when Todd Pack celebrated the film’s 26th anniversary by sharing 26 fun and informative tidbits. PLUS I just checked and it’s available on Netflix streaming. Hooray!

Ok, I’m not sure whether or not this voicemail is real, but it sort of falls into the can’t-make-this-shit-up camp. Either way, it’s fun to picture a bunch of old ladies roughing up a truck driver who hit their car.

And finally…even the best high school cheerleaders have nothing on these human pyramid builders. Not for the faint of heart. Spoiler alert: They sometimes collapse.

What’s your favorite thing that happened this week? Please do tell!

    Aw, man. Just when I think I have a novel idea I find out someone’s already doing it and better than I would have. Case in point: black and white photos. They’re my new thing — just this week in fact, but I could never have found a lady bowling with a kangaroo! Fabtastic.

    Why don’t I “get” Raising Arizona? What’s wrong with me??? (Don’t answer that.)

      I have a small collection of vintage b & w snapshots, but mine aren’t nearly as interesting.

      Roger Ebert didn’t get it either, so I guess you’re in good company.

    March 8, 1969, the day we both said, “Yes!” So today is my best day this week! I’m spending the day with my best guy.
