Who would have guessed that a bit of art, wise-guy stories, and a few visits from a pirate (here, here, here, here, and here!)could lead to 100 posts? But here I am. And here you are, having made this lighthearted journey way more fun because of your company. So of course, I need to thank you properly. And how better than with the traditional Swashbuckler Soiree. What? Not traditional? Well, it is now!
Think ruffled shirts, buckled boots, and sword fights. Damsels in distress, fantastic flounced skirts, and of course, corsets . Maybe buried treasure, maps, and ships that pass in the night. Plumed hats, flags hoisted, and romance. And did I mention pirates? I'm sure there are many more images I've stirred up in your minds that I haven't even thought of.
The plan is to gather back here (this is an on-line web party) on May 3rd where I will have all of your blogs listed with the links to everyone. All of you will post your swashbuckler-esque creations on your own blogs. Then we will set sail and pop over to each other's blogs and see all of your artwork! We can celebrate all day and into the evening, be it in a costume, or with creations of clay, paper art, dolls, photography, etc. Or even a pirate story would be very cool - whatever!! And whether we've met before or not, you are all invited. Invite a friend to come with you. And the day after the party I will put the names of all who attended in....yes, you guessed it, a pirate's hat and draw the name of the person who will be crowned, "Queen of the Swashbuckler Soiree"! And a little something from me will find it's way to the winner.
So, who's joining me?? Don't force me to make you walk the plank!! Leave a comment (make sure I have your name and link)and I will add your name to the list of swashbuckler-ettes. This is sure to be a Jolly Roger of a good time!!
PS- Feel free to use the Swashbuckler banner on your blog if you're joining in the fun! (If you need it resized, I can do it for you).
PS!!! It's not too late to sign up so leave a comment if you want to join in!!!
