Thank You For Being A Friend....

I am now the proud owner of two (that's right, two!) new pieces of wall art from the talented Magpienight.  I hung them in my crafting studio, on the wall in my sewing corner.  Of course, the guys in the house think I'm absolutely ridiculous but they don't know what they're missing!

The color isn't the best in this photo but that corner sucks for lighting despite being next to a window.


I love watching stuff as an adult that I'd seen as a kid.  Now that I actually understand all of their catty remarks and dirty jokes, The Golden Girls is a new found favorite of mine.  So when I saw these I knew that they had to come and live with me.

How about you?  Re-discovered any old gems waiting to become your new favorite?

Hee-hee! I knew it! I love Maggie! Those pieces are so great!

I used to watch that show with my grandma back in the 80's when I didn't get it either, but I loved Rose and her St. Olaf stories. :)

Love those, seriously L-O-V-E! I was actually thinking of doing a Back in St. Olaf for my 19 year old niece who's just discovered the GG's and is OBSESSED. I think I might, she'd really get a kick out of it. So inspired, thanks for sharing your goodies!

I also watched them with grams. Totally different appreciation nowadays. I always knew Blanche was a dirty-bird, but now I get it :o)

My mum used to share a house with a couple of other fiesty women, and we dubbed them "The Silver Sisters"....I barely remember the GGs but I do remember liking the characters. That wall art is very cool :-)

Ummm... hello?!? I LOVE the GGs! I actually wrote about them in my new year's resolution post---> New Year's resolution #3: Watch more "Golden Girls"! I, too, have fond memories of watching them when I was a kid, and just started watching them again as a grown-up. Whenever I watch the girls, all I can think is, "They were 'Sex and the City' before 'Sex and the City'!" Love them! :-) Super awesome stitches, too! Working through major jealousy issues, here.

Wow, I didn't realize that there were so many Golden Girl's fans out there. Now I don't feel so alone, lol.
I totally agree with VegKat- they were the original sex in the city, complete with the fashion. Their 80s garb is so over the top!
I hope you all visited Maggie's shop, her stuff is very resonably priced and she'll do custom work. So, once you have your favorite quote in mind, drop her a line!
I'm going to be spending the next few days working on my etsy shop- so much to do, so little time :(

Oh, wow, thanks! It's so neat to see them on display! I just came across this when I saw you fanned my FB page - thanks! I love finding fellow GG fans. :)

I wish I still had TV. I used to watch reruns every summer. Sophia was my favorite! Those are awesome. Only a true fan would get it. :)
