No I'm not depressed.
My Black Friday
is not referring to the 
Financial Crisis of 1869 
where the market crashed 
because of attempts to corner and control 
the gold market .... 
or the 
day after Thanksgiving shopping binge 
which has been called Black Friday 
since policemen used the term
due to the difficult traffic Philadelphia
in the mid 60's  ....
BUT ...

We have White Wednesday
Pink Saturday

Isn't it TIME for a

It is said
black "grounds" a room and
every room needs a little black.

I have a lot of black bits in the
Who Villa ...

This quote

"Black is the new Black"

Gotta love it!
"Fasten your seat belts: Black is the new black. Decoratively speaking, it's been known as somber, soigné, and serious. But when you want to pull out all the stops, you pull out the black."

Bottom line ...
isn't it time for a little
in your life ...

that is, lol!

Invite black into your home
and have some fun!

Candlesticks - any style! 

A dresser, perhaps?

Ask your house ...
what kind of LBD is it waiting for you 
to find (or paint!)?

Hugs and have a stunningly wonderful "Black Friday"!

  1. What a cute idea! I love black and have lots of it in my house.

    Well, I've never hosted a linky party so I have no words of advice other than you need to make a button for it and then spread the word via leaving comments.
