i love the 20′s

i’ve been staying close to home lately, taking care of my dog daisy who pretty much needs full time assistance til we leave for florida. (she’s 15 and not in bad health but getting kind of doddering). anyway she’s kept me on my toes, running to make sure she is comfy, etc. this time together has allowed me to watch tmc all day long while i work, i can’t count the films i’ve seen this week! and finally able to blog for a sec when i found this fun incoming link on my stats page (try to ignore the disturbing avatar). it led to a 2 hour trip thru utube. what a wonderland! i had no idea what was available cause i just haven’t had the luxury of time lately to explore this big beautiful world. so here’s to those who create it: thank you for this exquisite merging of past and present!

(ps AND i clicked one button and uploaded all the following videos straight to my site :)

hope you enjoy as much as i did!

pss if you need a french fix,

    I just had to say, like you, I have a few spare hours here in blog land and I just had to comment how gorgeous your blog is…. My daughter who is 14 and already has amazing taste was just drooling over the numerous books you had selected especially the fashion ones at the end…. Thank you so much for sharing your precious time with us we all so appreciate it… Take care Cathy (from down under)

    Isn’t Florizel just the best? I love browsing her site. And the 1920s – I always say I wished I could have lived then but only if penicillin had been invented.

    I hope your dear Dasiy is doing better today. It’s sad when our pets are not well and they can’t just tell us what they need. I have a scottie and 2 cats (old cats) and my daughters have guiena pigs. I love them all so dearly they are precious friends.
    Best Wishes and Happy Holidays!
    Julie
