gunpowder & lead

May 4, 2011

the countdown is on…and we’re working ’round the clock on fancy-schmancy, highly sophisticated, royal-esque details….

{no animals were harmed during the making of this blog}

just yer everyday, normal preparations…that involve a shotgun. and some ammo. and lots o’ restaurant-sized biggo tin cans…

{the stand-off...(cue CLiNT EaSTWOOD's 'the good, the bad, and the ugly' theme song here)}

the wildest, meanest, show-no-mercy, gunslinger of the wild west…

{just kiddin...(i do love to shoot...but don't tell anyone i'm a lover, not a fighter:)}

and i submit exhibit A. the first victim.

{decided we probably needed to scoot back a little....}

fire in the hole!

{just another day on the job, y'all}

{biggo restaurant cans pre-gunslingin' action}

{and post-gunslingin action...}

we’re half way there….stay tuned for the rest of our high-society decor! here in gypsyville, we’ve decided this is our version of a shotgun weddin’… πŸ™‚

“he hatEs THESE caNS! stay away from the cans!” ~steve martin as navin r. johnson in the jerk (one of amie’s all-time fave movies…if you haven’t seen it, go GET IT NOW. dammit.)

P.S. industrial size cans compliments of RoYERS CaFE!Β  HoLes in the cans, compliments of JG!

P.S.S. in case you’re wonderin what the heck we’re preparin’ for…read HERE.

    I am so happy now just knowing somebody else out there loves The Jerk as much as me! Every year when I find the new phone book in the mailbox I jump up and down and yell “the new phonebook’s here, the new phonebook’s here. This is the kind of spontaneous publicity that makes people!” I love yall!!!

    How do I get one of those swings that was used in the Shelton wedding? I am a huge Miranda fan and would love to have that swing. I can’t wait to hear from you. LOVE Junk Gypsy!!!
