Crochet of Life

As an avid crocheter, I ALWAYS let out a yarn obsessed fan girl scream whenever I see crochet anything in movies and TV. ESPECIALLY when it involves old movies and TV shows because...well...old movies are awesome. :D

So imagine my squeal when I spied some hooking up (yarn wise) in 1959's "Imitation of Life":

That's the amazing Juanita Moore as Annie and always super cute Sandra Dee as Susie. The movie all around was great but the Crocheting is Awesome scene (as I like to call it) was my favorite. :D

Vintage Touches for a Brighter Day

Hi everyone!

I was thinking this week: While I would love to be living in a mid-century house decorated with mid-century furniture and gee-gaws, wearing authentic vintage clothing while planning vacations in my Shasta trailer, that's just not in the cards for me. And you know what? That's okay!

And it could be that some day I'll wake up with the resources and amazing good luck to find all of these gorgeous things, but right now I'm celebrating a "vintage" life in my own small way. Sometimes just having little "touches" of something with a history is enough to brighten your day and make you feel like washing the dishes isn't so bad after all. ;)

So the other day, I made banana bread in a Pyrex dish, hung up my sweet rose apron, put up my feet and listened to some Ruth Etting (on my modern day Kindle of course, HA!) while drinking a mid-morning cup of coffee from my pink Stetson melmac cup.

I love mixing up my decades and just having fun with my vintage treasures.
