I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. If you have a loved one whom has served or is serving in the military, thank you so very for his or her service and sacrifice.
Thanks again everyone for all of your comments regarding Lori's fairy. Lori, I meant to ship her out today, but got behind in my day catching up with work stuff after a long holiday weekend, so I promise she'll be headed straight to the post office first thing in the morning. And I'll ship her Priority so she gets to her new home in a hurry! :-)
No new pics of fairies today thanks to my camera issues (and terrible photography skills). I am going to recharge my camera ( and myself for that matter) tonight and try to take some better photos tommorrow!
I had expected to post some pics of a few finished fairies yesterday but we got distracted by a little movie you may have heard of.... Pirates of the Caribbean, At World's End. Whew! The title is almost as long as the movie's 2 hour and 40 minute run time. But still, not quite as long as the line we had to stand in to get into the theater. Thank goodness for the nearby bookstore and the tantalizing issue of Somerset Life that I picked up to read in line. As for the movie itself, I found many scenes in to be visually enchanting, but also, in some scenes, quite horrific. It was more violent then I remember of it's predecessors'. What movies did you see this weekend, if any?
My favorite movies are ones made before 1950. I love the fashion and dialogue and the way actors could covey passion fully clothed. And the hats! Why don't men still wear hats?! Nothing to me, is more attractive than a gentleman with a jaunty derby pulled just at the right angle... like Gary Cooper here...
Okay, well, that is a cowboy hat. But Gary Cooper could have worn a soup pot on his head and still managed to make it look good. My Nana used to sigh over movie starts like Gary Cooper and Jimmy Stewart. She called them "SAH" men ( something about him.....) As I have mentioned before in this blog, I enjoyed nothing better than a night at Nana's watching old movies, sighing over her favorite movie stars.
Some of my favorite old movies....
Stella Dallas... if this movie doesn't make you cry... I am a blubbering fool at the closing scene every time. I love Barbara Stanwyck. She was the most fantastic Actress.
To Each His Own. Another tear jerker. Stock up on the Kleenex.
All About Eve... a gem of a movie. Bette Davis at her best, and most vulnerable.
The Philadelphia Story... Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant!... sigh
Rebbecca... I have three words for you... Sir Laurence Olivier....based upon Daphne du Maurier’s page devouring mystery. Almost as good as the book.
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington... Jimmy again, directed my favorite, Frank Capra.
I could go on and on. But I need to go to bed! Hope to be back tomorrow with some new fairy pics :-)
