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. :-)

This post was very funny! I needed a good laugh this a.m.
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!
You seem to have a way to brighten our day with your fun post.
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!
Such a funny way to tell about your treasures!
Those are some cuh-ute flip flops!!
I always love your thongs. Smile.
And they are bright and sassy like you! So Keetha! I LOVE IT!
From one vintage to another...while doing a little Walmart shopping the other day I see they are now making thong panty liners, I kid you not, is that just the grossest thing ever???
Great looking shoes and toes!
Cute cute cute and thrifty. Those are very nice for $10.00 vintage toes. Thanks for sharing!
Lol..my vintage feet are doing the happy dance for you...now sigh...if I could just find ME a pair of those thrifty thongs! Peace to ya sista! Lovely bloggie and happy VTT to you!
You are a hoot!! I love the thongs....you are right, very retro looking indeed....now about those vintage feet....they look great!!
Hava a great VTT!!
Sequins are so now - what a great thrifty find!
They totally look like you :) flowery, sparkly and totally comfortable!!
Those are the prettiest flip-flops I've ever seen! Fabulous find!
Thanks for sharing!
Those flips are the cutest! Love your toes too. :)
Very funny LOL...I never even thought of the other kind of thong! Thongs were flip-flops!
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!
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. =)
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!!
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.
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!
This post is such a ray of sunshine...you have me laughing!!
Great find. I really like your shoes..and your post. You have the sweetest sense of humor.. :). Happy VTT and I hope your weekend is a wonderful one.
I wish my 53-yr-old feet looked as good as yours! I adore the thongs!
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.
