Golden Girls Go Funko

The Golden Girls getting Funko-fied!  Whether you are a collector of these crazy bobbly-heads or just adore the girls you probably need these to add to your cubicle or Golden Girls fan room to go with your Script Prints 😉

To celebrate here is the best rendition of the TV Show theme song that I have ever heard:

Oh Betty… you’re too good for words

The brassy dame tells Oprah what her biggest regret is, check out the article here.  Moral of the story ladies… JUST. SAY. YES. To life, to love, to everything that makes you grow.

And if reading it makes you have feelings like you need to hang this bitch on your wall immediately, go to my Etsy shop and get yourself a Golden Girls script print (pictured below).

Holiday Gift Boutique

Well this was a first for me.  This past Sunday I teamed up with two of my incredibly creative and talented friends from Bella Star Jewelry & Analie and the three of us hosted a Holiday Gift Boutique.  We had our friends and friends’ friends over for mimosas, brunch and shopping!

It was such a thrill to sell for the first time in person (I love my PayPal swipe).  Definitely going to make this an annual event for all you LA locals.  In preparation for this event I have at least 5 new items ready for the online shop so its not too late to get the same UHMAZING items in time for Christmas!

Check out what’s new from Avant Dante!

The Golden Girls Drinking Game

Friends, it is time we all got down to brass tacks here.  It’s time I give you what you really want.  Thanks to Buzzfeed I finally can. I present you with the Golden Girls drinking game

And while you are getting tanked with your favorite ladies set your drinks on these Golden Girls Coasters or even let your guests take a pee break while appreciating these Golden Girls Script Prints you have so expertly decorated your bathroom with.  Have fun and eat cheesecake responsibly.

Golden Girls Script Prints Now Available

Don’t call it a comeback… no.  Call it golden.  After a spring hiatus the shop is back and fully in stock and to celebrate, I’ve added a brand new Golden Girls item for your purchasing pleasure.  The idea for this came from a custom order request I received from a gentleman in Brooklyn who was outfitting his retro bathroom to be Golden Girls themed.  He wanted my coasters but he wanted to hang them on the wall.  After some experimentation I think they came out lovely and really compliment his pink flamingo shower curtain.

This whole request got me thinking.  How can I use the Golden Girls art as wall decoration for the many many cheesecake eating souls out there that want the Girls on their bare walls?  After some failed experiments and a few terrible ideas, what has come out of this brainstorm is one of my favorite items to date.  I am happy to present you with the Golden Girls Script Print Series:

Each page is hand torn from a vintage book page of one of the original scripts from the Golden Girls TV show.  The pages are selected at random and no two are alike.  The page itself measures 3″ x 8″ and is mounted in an 8″ x 10″ float frame so it can be seen and read from all sides.

Available as individual framed prints or as a set of four.  Check out my Etsy shop and happy decorating!
