I'm sorry that my posts have been so sporadic. It seems my lower back thinks my lower front is having a baby! I kid you not....it feels just like labor pains. I guess I lifted one too many bales and toted one barge over my limit. Ah the life of a junker! Anyway...I promised celebrity pix and I've got a couple for you this morning.How about one of Cat Daddy in his signature pose? Do you remember your mamas telling you not to make a certain expression or your face would freeze like that? Obviously he didn't listen 'cause this IS his happy face! I swear...the man is beginning to believe his own press releases and y'all aren't helping matters much. If I had to hear one more woman squealing "Cat Daddy" (yes, I'm talking to you Laurie) I think I would have dropped him off at the nearest animal shelter. Sheesh! He thinks he's cuter than me...AS IF! Speaking of cute...is this not a hoot and a half? I would love to take credit for the design...but alas and alack...I can't. Well, I could, but I know I'd get called out for it if I did...so-o-o I have to give credit where credit is due. Maggie and Lily were having a little too much fun (read that wine) in their tent the day of the blog party and whipped this out just for moi! Isn't it just 2die4? I don't know if they thought I would actually wear it or not, but strings were added and yes people...I wore it to the blog party as a name tag. I have no shame. I really wanted to win Robelyn's Red.Neck Chic handbag in the worst way and I would have done just about anything (including stuffing the ballot box) to do so. I mean really...have y'all seen her handbags? You'd be doing whatever to win one too! Remind me to show y'all my Trash Bag that she made...OhMylanta!Sadly, in spite of all our best efforts including, but not limited to, me making a fool out of myself...I did not win! I tell you I was robbed! I coulda been a contender if TOT hadn't out done me! I'm not suggesting it did...but I wonder if money or cool pieces of junk were slipped under the table.
Jodie took pity on me and upped my chances of winning by crafting this beauty in her motel room the night before. I KNOW! Who carries around stuff to make something this spectacular in a moment's notice? Not I for dern sure Skippy! She's a true Girl Scout...always prepared! Or maybe she's SuperGirl...faster than a speeding U-Haul...more powerful than a hot wax gun...able to make a name tag from nothing! Look! At the Holiday Inn...it's a junker...it's an artist...no it's Jodie of Everything Vintage!
If I haven't mentioned it before...I love Jodie. This was my first time to meet her face to face and all I can say is she is something else! When you read her posts, you are seeing her. There are no airs or pretences about her. It's all genuine and I adore her. In fact, I love all the young women out there who visit. I don't know if y'all know this, but y'all sure help keep this old lady feeling young! I wish I could bottle each and every one of you up and sell you as the Fountain Of Youth. I could be a cajillionaire overnight!
I thought y'all would enjoy seeing that it's not all about the work at the Mother Ship. We go to have a good time as well and the blog party was just that...a great time! Thanks Theresa! nWhile there were stars walking among us (Miranda for one), my surprise celebrity was none other than the Baby Trashette herself. I hadn't mentioned that she and Jenn might be coming and everyone was caught off guard. She attended the Junk Gypsy's prom (sort of) resplendent in her very own tutu and baby bling. Notice that my baby is teething on prisms. What does this tell you that the future holds for her!
She held court in our tent until bedtime called. We were a little worried about how she would react to the crowd and noise, but not to worry. This baby is a diva in training. She smiled and showed her dimples to one and all. See why you never want to leave early? Never know what or who you'll miss!
There were so many flashbulbs going off and it didn't faze her at all. She considered it her due! By the by, if any of y'all have photos of her I'd love to see them. Drop me a line or feel free to post them.

For now though, I've got to go put a heating pad on my poor back and see if I can get the hitch outta my gitalong!
