It's a Pirate party!

Grab your bottle of rum and let's celebrate The Swashbucklers Soiree!
This is a pirate Madame Alexander doll. I started collecting the dolls a few months ago and of course one of the first ones I had to have was a pirate!

This is what I made. A pirate wall hanging and two wands.

I found these little plastic swords at a thrift store a couple weeks ago and the anchor was pulled off a big fluffy pin.

This is Mom's pirate costume for Halloween she wore a couple years ago. I bought her that Jack Sparrow standup for her birthday earlier that year. I've mentioned before that we always have a theme for our birthday's and Pirates or more importantly Jack Sparrow was her theme for a couple years in a row.

Have a swashbuckling good weekend, Lindsey and Twyla

Apparently *my* crew needs to be put on notice about the abysmal lack of pirate-y birthday celebrations at the Magpie's Nest! Hmph. I need more rum.
