A Tribute to the Feuding Queens ..

"Attempt the impossible in order to improve your work." ~  Bette Davis

I love these ladies!  Although they were arch rivals in life ... They were both so incredibly strong and charismatic on the screen

Ahhhhh Bette Davis ... I just watched her in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane"  and she was fearless!  Absolutely amazing acting, and to embrace her age and allow herself to 'be ugly'  ... she is amazing

Joan Crawford ... the ice queen.  Although she played the nice sister in this movie I didn't buy it for a second ... team baby Jane (Bette) ... but isn't she gorgeous!  The face, the grace .... what an era ..

In 'Baby Jane" .... goooo Bette!

So in honor of my leading ladies Iv posted 2 antique hats in my shop ... 1940 & 1950 ... :)  Im in Joan character here ... hehe  :)

My Shop Was Featured in Etsy Weddings ~ Yay!


Vintage Find of The Week 1919! WOWZA

Half price sale at my fav thrift shop in Toronto!  I had to pinch myself ... and make room in my trunk .... I was off like a prom dress, as my best friend would say ... headed to Toronto ...

Pick of the day .. this antique Coro Graduated Pearl necklace ... from 1919!!!  Yeppers, 1919.  Of course when I purchased it I didnt know.

this is how you can tell its age, the detailed clasp is stamped with a patent number, but thats not the interesting part ... check out the end of each strand of pearls .. they come out separately and are stamped form 1 - 3 and 1b - 3b ... wild!  " Evokes the days when women dressed in hats and gloves, with jewelry matching their outfits, just to go shopping or visiting..."

these are a personal fav .. they are 'pop it' pearls.  The pearls can be pulled apart and snapped back together ... My nana had them and I remember playing with them as a child .. plus what a great color these are!

Victorian Pearl gloves .... these babies go write up to your elbow ... fru fru!

Sugar Sugar ..  a pearl and sequin clutch.  I posted this in my shop and it sold within a day!  Ahhh and its so pretty :)

If Only We Could Be More Like Our Pets ...

.... why do we love our pets so much? 

Because they do not judge us.

Because the love they give us is a direct result of the love we give them.  It is not based on how we look or do not look ... it is simple and true.

It would be nice if in this world we where judged by our actions and not by a pre concieved perception of who we are.   

Our body is sometimes a disguise that people can not see past ... maybe thats why we love our pets so much ... they see us.
