WTF Wednesday: Thrashing, Churning, and Caroling

Happy Wednesday! Happy WTF!

Let us begin with a question to modern society - when did it become acceptable (mandatory?) to wear head to toe black and only black? Every piece of clothing and luggage these people were wearing was black. 

 I know I dress like a pinata, but come on.

Here's some lovely hotel art signed by the photographer - Janet van Arsehole.

 Moving along to perennial favorites - 60's record albums!  The Thrasher Brothers - 

 Are Coming Your Way!

And Are Turning it On!

These people are seriously churning butter.

And The Vicksburg

 In Nashville, in white shoes, next to a river.

This looks like an interesting book. 

Gotta read it to find out which part.

Lastly some holly jolly holiday decorations.

Pretty much sums up my feelings about the holidays.

 Are you caroling, or are you barfing to death? Hard to say!

As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.

WTF Wednesday: holidaze

Just like that, Wednesday has reappeared. 

If only a bunch of WTF would magically reappear along with it, but alas, WTF  requires me to physically go hunting for it, and this week has been too holiday rushed for that to come close to happening. 

Instead, look at this Snoopy doll.

He is being offered for sale from my friend Fresh to Death Vintage. I think he is a Boy George Snoopy - "Colour by Numbers" era?  karma karma karma karma karma chameleon!

Another WTF selection from my good friend Robin Egg Surprise.

 Perverted Christmas Mice

That's it for this week, hope to be back at full force by next WTF Wednesday! Until then, SH Vintage is open 24/7 with no crowds and no waiting - shipping every day!

WTF Wednesday: 60's Knit, Crochet, and Polka

Bienvenidos a WTF Wednesday! Fiesta!

Let us begin with a couple of early 70's Polka records. 

Sing, Dance, Drink with the Michigan Polka-Tels. And a portrait of their Godfather. 

George Poole and his Polka Dots.

 Oom pa pa! 

Next let's discover the excitement of Hairpin Lace in this 1967 crochet pattern magazine. 

Her toe is extremely excited.

The vest frees up his arms for quick clicks.

Without the vest, she's staying at home Saturday night. But with the vest...

Exactly like Mandarin China.

So snuggly, so manly. 

Ace that job interview with an afghan granny knit necktie!

This family is my spirit animal.

Last but not least, here's a little sugarshark tooth:

my old clothes: tarheels edition part I

a few months ago i admitted my vintage t-shirt addiction and promised to share a few of my personal favorites here. 

then nacho died, sugarhoney arrived, and the second busiest month of the vintage year (october) steamrolled along, but here i am today with the first real glimpse into my own closetful of vintage treasures.

i spent 9 of my most formative years in chapel hill, nc. i love love love love UNC basketball. (i don't care about football. get rid of the team, fine by me). my tarheel ardor is diminished not one iota by the recent academic scandal - i truly believe athletes at every college in this country get special treatment. every single college. we have all heard of 'rocks for jocks.' not that 3 million wrongs make a right, but i am just not shocked or appalled by the news. the issue is complicated, and i am not judging. 

i've been collecting UNC t-shirts for 20 years now. i have about 15 of them. i've sold many over the years that did not fit me, and i don't keep every UNC shirt i see. the ones i do keep are extremely soft and comfortable. they may be the best collection of North Carolina vintage t-shirts in size Medium in the entire world.

they are not for sale.

first up is this paper thin, soft Carolina Tarheels t-shirt with grumpy Rameses on the front.

made in the early 80's with a Signal tag.

this fits like a dream and is silky soft. perfect summer t-shirt.

next up is this North Carolina Tarheels Coca-Cola reminiscent design on a poly-cotton-rayon blend heathered gray t-shirt. 

made by velva sheen in the early 80s. again, soft and thin and broken into perfection. versatile.

number 3 is this Carolina blue gem with a rainbow chest print from the 1982 NCAA National Champion Men's Basketball team. (hello Michael Jordan). 

i love how the basketball is swishing. it's so soft. so festive.

number 4 is similar, but in a baseball raglan ringer form: 

 the word National is the net. it is so comfortable and thin.

last, and definitely not least is this gem of a UNC Chapel Hill t-shirt from the freakin 1960's. 

extremely broken in heathered gray. classic. 

ooooold velva sheen tag:

there you have it. 5 of my most prized t-shirts of the UNC variety. 

thanks for following along and stay tuned for more of my favorite t-shirts in months to come.
