Does This Sign Make My Ass Look Big?

I love getting snail mail of any kind – cards, letters, post cards and especially packages (who has ever opened their mailbox and said “damn it, someone sent me a package?”).  So you can imagine my delight when I saw a small box waiting for me to open one recent afternoon.

Inside the package was one of the funniest, most spot-on gifts I have ever received, compliments of Elvis’s mom, Whit (who also gifted me my fabulous Captain Morgan lamp).  I am always commenting on the ampleness of my derriere (and how I try to detract some attention from it) and this present offers a perfect explanation of my obsession with sparkles, sequins and shoes.

My total mantra on a canvas in MY COLORS!

And where else would one display such a fabulous piece of art? Well my bathroom of course (along with my sparkly deer head that you can win) where I house all fabulous things live in my mini manse.

The perfect trio. My crowned cat, my motto and a skull and crossbones jewelry dish. Sigh.

Every time I see the sign it makes me giggle, adding a little pep to my step and granting me justification for piling on more daily bling.

Sparkle on.



Who Wants a Pink Sparkly Deer Head?

A Cowboys and Crossbones giveaway just in time for the holiday season!

You know you want me.

A few months ago, I blogged about my beloved pink sparkly deer head that’s proudly displayed in my bathroom (click here to read all about it). And people went bananas (unexpectedly went bananas. I actually thought people would stop reading my blog due to my kookiness), flooding my inbox about where the hell I found this one-of-a-kind glittered jewel.

This manly buck knows all of my bathroom beauty secrets.

And now, here’s your chance to win your very own sparkly deer head (what home is complete without one?)! My personal Mrs. Claus (I’m one of Santa’s favorites) commissioned a deer head from the elves that is beyond fabulous and donated it to Cowboys and Crossbones for a holiday giveaway.

An exact replica of Prancer.

This deer is a tad more spectacular than the one I hunted down (I kinda want to keep it for myself)- complete with beads, sequins AND sparkle.  There is a small hole on the back, so you can mount this lovely in any lucky room of your choosing.

Sequins and beads and glitter, oh my! Embellishment heaven.

And fabulous readers, here are the deets for your chance to win this little sparkly slice of Nashville’s CBXB:

Share your favorite holiday memory past or present and include where you intend on displaying this deer no later than Wednesday, November 28th by simply:

1) Leaving your memory in a comment below or

2) Sending me an email at with the subject reading Deer Me.

This giveaway is open to all of my kick ass readers across the globe and the winner will be announced Friday, November 30th.

Mrs. Claus will have the final say so in selecting our grand champion, so bring on the holiday spirit (I will be feeding her Skinny Pirates while she judges).

Happy Holidaying –
