Adventures in Curtsyland!

Friday, April 24, 2009


I had a fabulous time in Arizona & already miss my best friend & her dog Jack oodles, but I am always happy to return to Curtsyland. Lots of goodies for the men's section arrived while I was away. Lots of love from Sailor Jerry & a shipment from a new company for us...Retro-a-go-go....which I am adoring...

They make frames, belt buckles, card cases, cigarette cases, flasks, etc with fantastic artwork. My favorite piece that arrived is the Sideshow Frame. I have always had a thing for old circus sideshow inspired things....normal is just too boring for this freaky world we live in - right?!! ;) Their frames all hold 4"x6" photos, and are made of pine wood coated with a black enamel finish. Then the colorful retro designs are coated in hand-poured, crystal-clear resin for a shiny and glass-like finish. Other frames we received include a vintage tattoo art style, and a Burlesque frame covered with authentic 1940's ad clippings.

The flasks we received fit right in with the vintage tattoo art frame & Sailor Jerry goods. I adore the Bottoms Up mermaid design....I've always wanted to be a mermaid. Other styles include a Destination Unknown with a pirate beer wench, and Hard Times, Hard Luck, Hard Liquor with a skull & roses.

We received a collection of card cases & belt buckles....all black & white with icons that look spray painted on. Designs include a grenade, brass knuckles, a gas mask, a spark plug, and a Mexican wrestler. All the cases are prefinished steel, the belt buckles are pewter, with the designs coated with hand-poured clear resin.

Will catch you up next week on all the Sailor Jerry fantastic-ness that arrived!
