Am I fashhionably late? I would like to attend! I havent a thing to wear, so I would have to be the scullery maid, you'll need one for all the broken dishes, what with the rum and coke drinking wenches and blokes! I am busy getting my little pirate ready now. Pam

Ready and waiting, oh Queen of the Jolly Roger!

Black-Eyed Suzie

Sorry to ask a question so late, but just wondering about the time...I have to work in the morning just for two hours and am wondering if I should try to post my pics before then or is around 1:00 - 2:00 okay?
Sorry - couldn't figure out the banner (techno-lamo...)

Shiver me timbers! Count me and me bottle o' rum in! Sounds like a hoot.

teri c

count me in . . . I love a good pirate :D


I would love to oblige, but I'm rather swamped at the moment under laces and fans and diamonds as I try to keep from drowning in all of my Marie Antoinette creatings. Meanwhile, my house is a total disaster...BUT if I happen upon a pirate idea that jumps out of me and demands my attention, I'll try very hard to be there...sure would hate to walk that plank! And do get that peanut butter...all the pirates will go bonkers over it!

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Oh my! Will Johnny be there? Tee hee! I'm in. I've got to find me eye patch! congratulations Donna!

Raised In Cotton

Ok, I guess that means I have to
bring Captain Jack Sparrow:) I am lacing up my busteia as we speak~I have lots of boost to lace up to get ready:)



Please, be so kind and count me in, too. My 4 years old son is absolutely sure that he is a knight. Rest on the family has a lot of fun because on him.


Can hardly hold my sward to my side, nor my patch to my eye! I'll be the one with bells around my neck!

Miss Maddie's

There once was a Scottish lass
Who ventured off to sea
For she knew from an early age
A pirate she would be
So she sailed on a ship named the 'Bonnee Lass'
Across the seven seas,
Plundering treasure and capturing hearts of many a pirate that be.
When alas one day on a wharf at Tortuga,
Her eyes did meet and breath did sigh
For the pirate Johnny stood he,
With his rum laden kiss and manly scent he took her heart, you see
And off they sailed on his ship together
Named, 'My Lass Come Away With Me'...

Country French Antiques

Well count me in!
Will Johnny be here?
How fun!!!!!


Oh this sounds fun!! Count me in please. Hope that I can create something worthy a scottish pirate queen!


Ann-Denise Anderson

Well, Queen of Scottish Pirates, I wouldn't miss congratuling you on your 100th post. And probably will be able to squeeze in some artsy fun ala pirate for this...since it's YOU doing the inviting.
xo Lidy

Come get your quote of the day

Karla Smith

My first swap but could not resist the story but maybe some more ideas on what to make from a veteran or two. Guidelines, media, info like that.

To be in with more Swashbucket Soiree Ladies will be just the prefect thing for me. Still new with learning typepad (can't wait to catch up to you all you bloggers and swappers) and am happy took the dive into blogland. Creative places to visit is so refreshing.

We Aarrghh going to have a fun time!

Karla Smith


ok, i'm in...mostly because i loves those little boots and want their picture on my sidebar:) the pressure is on.....arrrrrrrgh!!!

Nancy ~ Fete et Fleur

Avast, M’Lady Pirate Queen. It would be m'pleasure to attend thy Swashbuckler Soiree.
I have taken it upon m'self to add thy banner to m’blog.


;~) Nancy

Lisa Oceandreamer

I'm so glad I took a break today and stopped by your lovely blog. Of course count me in matey! There may be a fair share of sword fighting over one certain pirate I'm afraid. He will just have to decide which treasure "chest" he wants. yo ho! One two "oh Johnny, buckle my shoe".
Upon my return I will have to put my pirate thinking cap on. Because....corset it's going to be a fab party! (get that, did you get that play on words?) YO HO!

Christine LeFever

I'm sorry, I meant the pirate's hat. I will do my very best to create something worthy!

Christine again


Sign me up matey!!


Ever so often you hit a blog and you feel like your inside a wonderful enchanted land! That is the way it feels here...I WILL be a regular!

jessi nagy

o my gosh this sounds so fun!
i will be in LA that weekend!
i just wanted to say congrats!!!
i love your blog!! and you.

Christine LeFever

Well, I have purposefully avoided give aways, but anything from your hands is a forever treasure, so throw my name into the treasure chest.

In agreement with Sandra E., you look stunningly adorable at Ulla's.
