Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Thrifty Vintage Thingies Thursday - THONGS


It's THAT time again!!!!
Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Coloradolady and Thrifty Thursday at Bloggeritaville.














Be sure you click on both of the above icons or links to check out what everyone else is posting.

Today I am ACTUALLY more thrifty than vintagie. Can you believe it, Leigh????

Just look what I got for $3 yesterday:


Oh they are so bright and full of color and 70's flowers and BLING on the straps - - - it was love at first sight!!!

Then I put them on my little feet - - - with my OTHER thrifty find, a $10 pedicure from the Beauty School, and VOILA!!! That's double thrift in one post.

What about the VINTAGE part you ask?

Well folks - - - my feet ARE vintage. Oh yes they are - - - they are 55 years old and I believe 50 qualifies something to be an antique, so I ARE ONE!!!! :-)

AND, if that isn't vintage enough, I'm referring to these brand new flip-flops by their very vintage 50's and 60's name of THONGS.

No - - - you will NOT EVER catch me wearing the OTHER kind of thong. Don't EVEN bother to picture it in your mind's eye - - - - Don't go there - - - it's UGLY. :-)

Hey my vintage feet have yours beat by one year! So respect your elders from now on, young lady.

Very cute thongs. . . we used to call them "zorries" when I was a kid, back in the covered wagon days.

And what is this ghost story you've got? Give, girl, give!

Cute, cute... I would so wear those too! and I never thought about a pedicure from a beauty school. Good Idea!!! now I just have to find a beauty school, where's the phone book? Vintage, I like using the word seasoned instead... vintage just sounds older. Right there with you K.B.:)

Nice thong Keetha! I mean thongs! They're pretty, and your feet are cute! You gotta love the beauty school. That's where I get my hair cut, and one of these days I'll have to try a pedicure!

Ulla said...

Those flips are the cutest! Love your toes too. :)

Miri said...

Very funny LOL...I never even thought of the other kind of thong! Thongs were flip-flops!

Nancy said...

How words have changed! My favorite thong / flip-flop story: A wonderful pastor of ours announced the church picnic to be held after morning services in a couple weeks. In the first service, he told everyone to dress casually and wear thongs to church on picnic Sunday. In between services, a few of us informed him of the current definition, and he corrected his announcement during the 2nd service. Good thing most of the younger generations attended the 2nd service!

Bea said...

Funny post today. Enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed wearing my thongs when I was growing up. Now I wear flip flops and no thong. =)

marianedwardsdreamweaver said...

that was ssoo much fun!!..love your thongs and your red toenails!..btw we call them thongs downunder the other type of thong we call a g-string..like you i haven't worn one in quite a while lol!!

Cindy said...

hahahaha! The thongs have a great vintage look, your feet don't look vintage. Man, I wish I lived that close to a beauty college.

Headless Mom said...

You and your cute thongs! I need to find me some!

Oh, and I had to laugh at the statement "50 qualifies something to be an antique, so I ARE ONE!"=PRICELESS!

Sarah said...

CC said...

I wish my 53-yr-old feet looked as good as yours! I adore the thongs!

mary'smom said...

Oh...I really do need your help. I don't know what I'm doing at all. I will delete the others, except for Mary's artwork because this belongs to my daughter. She wanted to join me with her own blog...I didn't know the best way to do this. Yes, please follow Mom's House Book.
