Pick Pockets

Hidden on the back roads of Wacky Waco, locked away in the confines of her Fortress of Aluminum Siding, one woman works tirelessly in her laboratory to conquer once and for all...crimes against fashion.Her quest...to arm every woman with a unique, one-of-a-kind handbag (such as MY La Trash Bag crafted of the finest garbage sacks available)...to wipe out cookie cutter purses...to enable all woman-kind to make her own fashion statement and to no longer live in fear of seeing her handbag on someone else's shoulder!

(INSERT TICKER TAPE PARADE HERE!) DA DA DA...DA-A-A!

Taking that which is considered castoffs by others...locked behind the walls of her Taj Mahal...she tirelessly fights fashion faux pas and creates Fab U Lous Porte-monnaies!
Her mission...to reduce landfills and to save the planet...one handbag at a time while encircling the globe in a melange of duct tape and color!
Armed only with a sewing machine, seam ripper, and a chain saw, she fearlessly dismantles sofas for the velvet...rips into leather pants for shoulder straps...wrestles cowboys for their belt buckles...tracks the elusive Pleather then using her secret powers of transformation, renders ordinary objects...extraordinary!
Quietly living a secret dual life...by day known only as RobUhLyn, mild-mannered, demure, graphic designer...but at night...becomes Red.Neck Chic, mistress of duct tape, Queen Of The Double Wide!
Sadly, the hours spent hunched over a sewing machine and too much time sniffing duct tape has taken it's toll on our gallant heroine.

(In other words...she is a little tetched in the head or as I like to say...throwed off!)
She is removing the mask of anonymity and is giving away a Red.Neck Chic pocketbook AND a matching chapeau just by visiting and voting.

Are you brave enough to take her challenge? Will you risk everything to vote and tell her...and the world...you love hats and you're not afraid to wear 'em?

The strain of having to get ready for Zapp Hall has rendered her powerless to stop herself. This purse and matching hat can be yours!
Her able-bodied partner Mindy, The Rust Rustler, will be announcing the winner in their tent at Zapp on the 27th. Malissa (Pent Up Photos) will be making the drawing of one...and only one...person's name. Your last chance to be tray sheek a la Red.Neck Chic will be Saturday, September 25th at the stroke of noon...high noon!
If you're planning on going to Warrenton for the antique show...you must get by Zapp Hall and see what this crazy crime fighting duo has cooked up in their tent! I promise you plenty of gicks and kiggles!

See you at the blog party...I hope!

(Disclaimer: There were no animals harmed in the typing of this post!)

Ha! Debra KNEW I was imitating CD! That's funny! And indeed, there is no telling what kind of fun will be happening in our space at any given time. Y'all come see us! And by the way, I said y'all would wear the hat and purse together. Robelyn said you wouldn't. Bless her heart. ~Mindy

Glad to hear NO animals were harmed during your post. I'd hate to have to give you a PETA beating, per email! Wish I was there with all of you!! Just keep the pixs coming and it will make my days of directing my CR customers to the bathroom much easier!!

Take care, Sue

I agree with everyone, the hidden talent is possessed by the Trash Talker,girl your gift of gab is legendworthy and never fails to shower coffee on my keyboard...'would you wear a skirt on your head'...that is priceless marketing, wish I could be there to play with y'all, the talents never end in Texasville, thanks for showing, cute stuff!!!

But alas, this Iowa nut case is knee deep in bordello dreamin'...gotta go hang a swing in the rafters...is that normal behavior...thought so!!!

Hey CD, that's a pretty good imitation, but never as good as the original...y'all have fun now!
