Happy World Goth Day! -


Not all of us subscribe to the lukewarm ambition of life.

I've always gravitated toward the more eccentric, flamboyant, outrageous styles and will never change. Don't expect me to cut my hair into a little old lady 'do (I'd rather shave my head instead!) or wear boring clothes.

Ain't gonna happen, peeps! Life is too short and full of too many fun colors and styles. 

My style SHEroes are Cher, Dolly Parton, Siouxsie Sioux, RuPaul, the Boulet Brothers, and a few others of the like who also were never interested in fitting in with the rest of the herd. I salute you lovely ladies!

Though I'm getting older and there's a slight hitch in my giddy-up, I still LOVE dress to the nines and wear wigs, false eyelashes, black velvet and thigh-high boots. Let's just say, the more drag queen the look, the more I like it! 

One of my favorite Dolly Parton quotes is, "It takes a lot of money to look this cheap."  I love that beautiful, creative woman so much!


My hair has morphed into so many different colors over the years, from white-bleached blonde to blue to blue black, red, purple, magenta, orange, you name it. As long as I'm able to reach up and slather some dye on my locks, I'll keep at it!

In honor of World Goth Day, I'll leave you with this oldy but goody of me, circa 1990s.

Share your best Goth look!

Staying safe and sane ...

...well, sort of!


I generally have little to no problem staying home, and, being easily amused, have lots to keep me happily entertained!

However, lately, yup, starting to definitely feel some cabin fever creeping in. No worries, Halloween is but a mere 164 days away. Got plenty to keep me busy with, including my garden when I'm not indoors working on projects.

This ongoing project, "Batilda," is continuing nicely! The second decorated box (of four total) is complete. Quite different from the original, which was tres GOTH, this one is resplendent with summery flower colors of lavender, greens, and pinks. It is going to be gifted to a very special lady. Nope, can't tell you who it is just yet, but I promise it will be worth the wait.

Not the best quality photo, but it'll have to do for now.
"Batilda" decorated cackling keepsake boxes, by me.
