Friday's Five

I am going to do something I have never done before!

I am going to start a weekly regular thang, that I am going to call 
Friday's Five.

Kind of like The Jackson Five...
...but not.

I am finding it hard to get the time to take photos, let alone post a Frock on a Friday, due to running around like a maniac most Friday's and having a Flange (my new musical project with G, Cousin Phil and our mate Mikel) jam late afternoon, so.......
I've decided, each Friday, I will show you some of what has especially excited me in Blogland over the past week! I can gather pix during the week, and have it all set up ready to go whatever the craziness that might be happening.
(but, OMG, just 5?! Am I mad?! SO many things excite me each week, but I'm trying to be sensible here!)

This week, they are, in no particular order:

Blogger Meetups!

ha, got these pix all out of whack, but I likey!
When Amber met Shelley and Sheila met Melanie!
I so wish I'd been the meat in these sandwiches!

Lovely Carina had a dirty weekend in Stockholm, and then rocked it in the snow in this divoon frock!

Lucy's Lounge-this woman is incredibly creative, and blew my mind this week with her redecorated handbags!

Vix has unleashed The Kinky Melon Boutique!
Apparently, it isn't as easy as one might think to create a website, and she's been working that tight little arse of hers off!

 Our very own Rainbow Brite Krista scored this amazing cape and jazzed it up with pink buttons!

Sarah has had the most stunning week of good things and splendiferous frockery!
Incidentally, have I mentioned that Helgastock 2013 is scheduled for May?!
(Search Helgastock 2011 and Helgastock 2012 at Misfits Vintage if you are wondering what the feck I am talking about!)

That's 6.
So bite me!

Realistically, y'all give me the horn.....we'd be here all farking day if I showed you everything I loved this last week!

But it's not Friday, and there's 6! Stop confusing me **sob** it's not fair! I can't cope! lol :D ♥

Ofelia said...

Great idea!
Thanks for the introduction since I didn't know must of the ladies on the list.
5 sounds like a good beginning; a way to enticing us on what or whom may be in the list.

Melanie said...

Thank you, Helga, for being my substitute blog brain! Your Helga Alerts will fill me in on any gaps in blog fabulosity that I have grievously missed, such as Karina AND Krista's incredible cape. You punting rulebreaker!

Penny-Rose said...

Great idea Helga! Hope you have a great Easter!

Carina Rosenholm said...

Oh Helga you rock my world! Im so honoured - what a great start on my day!!!

Lucys Lounge said...

Lucy Nation said...

Yay, what a great idea, and what a fine bunch of ladies. I'm particularly excited by the launch of Kinky Melon and Carina has some beautiful dresses xxx

edie pop said...

I love the idea!! It 's like a fabulous top five news, the kind of news I prefer! I adore Lucy's bag, the meet-ups, Sarah's leggings , Carina in the snow and our Krista's new cape!
I'm very excited too by the launch of Vix's boutique!!
I'd really love to meet you and all these ladies in real life!
Lots of love

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

How could you possibly choose a mere five? I think the blogger meet-ups can count as one don't you reckon? ;) Look at Melanie's coat - I would give that woman a piggy back ride through a muddy estuary just to get jolly good squeeze!! Sarah + knickers-over-pants = fecktarstic!!!!!! Helgastock 2013? I think I just pee'd!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxooxoxox

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

Absolutely a great idea!

My sister is Margaret said...

It's so cool idea!!

Hope you have a great Easter!! :)

Devil made in Heaven said...

How lovely! And what a great outfits everybody is wearing.
Love the cape from Krista. Such a great color.
And Melanie's coat is gorgeous.
I wish I could meet up with other bloggers/vintage lovers one day.

xxx have a lovely day.

CityScape Skybaby said...

That's a great idea Helga, and you've already given me some new and interesting bloggers to look up, at this rate I'm never ever going to catch up with comments. I must admit I have been a bit mystified by Helgastock so I shall go and investigate further. Have a lovely weekend! xx

Val Sparkle said...

Yes, you can consolidate the best of the best and excise the rest! Now I must go look at those handbags...

Krista Gassib said...

I have always wanted to know what else give you horn:) I'm honored to be among so much yumminess. Blogger meet ups rule and I too am so proud of our little Vix. Thanks for love sweetie! Have a killer weekend!

thorne garnet said...

Crap, now I'm totally confused. I just went to a doctor's appointment on the wrong's for 5/28/13. (yeah, 2 months off) And now it's Friday? So the show I'm working on has opened and I get the day off? the idea! And I've got some new to me blogs to check out.

Vix said...

What a brilliant idea, my darling!
What an honour to be surrounded by such hotness, Sarah in her pants, Krista in her cape, full-on blogger meets, hot Swedish blonde Carina and our new playmate, the lovely Lucy!
Have a marvellous time playing with Flange and speak to you next week!
Love you! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'm amazed that you are able to take so many pics and post as often as you do! I do like the Helga-curated photos of this post.

Forest City Fashionista said...

This is a great idea, and thanks ever so for including my meetup with the lovely Amber in the first installment! I've been having difficulty posting regularly lately, so I think it's amazing that you post as often as you do.

And double thanks for introducing me to Lucy's Lounge - my Gawd, the woman has crazy awesome style!

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

You are such a doll, Helga!!! When I met the Forest City Fashionista, you were on our "wish you were here" short list, love!

Lately wishing I were more able to be visiting and commenting as much as usual, must say you've been generating a fabulous string of amazing posts, you're incredibly awesome!!! xoxoxoxo
