A Swashbuckler Soiree

I was doing a little blog-hopping yesterday and found The Ribboned Crown where Donna is hostessing a Swashbuckler Soiree tomorrow.

She issued her invitation to one and all last month, and encouraged everyone to make something appropriate for the occasion. On such short notice I couldn't really commit to making anything but I do intend to participate. Can't resist them pirates! Especially this one. (And there was a rumor that he would be there!)
I have instructed my helmsman to sail the pirate vessel Bluebird down the coast and my crew to rummage in the holds to see what treasures we can bring to the party.

"More sail ye gobs! We don't want to be late!"


  1. Thank you for sharing your pirates for this swashbuckler event. I have been sailing through Blogland enjoying each and every pirate's adventure. Such a fabulous and creative event. Donna has surely awakened the pirate creative in us all. Karen

  2. Did you say treasure? We pirates love to rummage for treasure. Off to the next port. Enjoy the Soiree.

  3. Nice Pirate!
    Happy Swashbuckler's Soiree!

  4. As the ship was pulling away I saw you sprint and just make in time!!! Happy to have you along!!!

  5. Sure and I would not want to cross swords with your helmsman...he doesn't look like a happy camper!

  6. I am so glad you made it. Bring us back some treasure.

  7. ooooooooo... such a scallywag of a helmsman ye have there! he'll make a fine guard over the gold coins!


  8. Gad your participating on such short notice! Johnny is so easy on the eyes you could just post images of him and flocks of people would come and we'd all be satisfied:) That pirate is mighty scary looking but I bet his bark is worse than his bite..maybe:)


Due to my health issues I am frequently unable to respond to your comments but please know that I appreciate your thoughtful responses. I cannot respond to 'no-reply' bloggers either, much to my frustration.
