this past weekend i went to the glendale paper fair with cutie. cutie can look for HOURS through old postcards- always researching and on the hunt for his blog. i on the other hand- can look for hours through old photgraphs. i like getting to know newly found friends from the past. best of all- i love when i can find pics of a ceratin group or family and see them change through the time. and i love, love, love when my new fround friends have written notes on their pics.

below is one of my favorite little darlings that i found. i found a few pics so i nabbed them all! :)

on the right- you see a cute smiling girl- on he back of the pick it reads, "she's 21. hazel eyes - brown hair- and is 5'10in." hmm.. i thought it was cute. maybe soemone was trying to play cupid and write her info on a pic... sooner or laterit looks like she found a sailor friend. :) she was a looker that would make any man happy.

here are more pics of little miss darling. :) look at the bottom riht hand pic... she is just so cute... and she played the ukey! i bet her voice was like a little birdy. :) girls like htese are the kind that inspired me to get a ukey.. my voice.. ehm... i'm sure my cutie would say it was like a little birdy! (lets not ask WHAT kind of birdy.... :)

and here- we see her with a group of friends. i was able to find some separate pics of her friends in the huge box that i attacked. i tried to kind of match the friends in order. the top right hand friend is on the top. :) the one below is in teh middle- and then litte miss darling is right below herself on the left hand side. :)

and looky here- i found friend # 2. i think she looks a little older and a bti more sophisto in the picture to the right. :)

i didnt' find friend # 1, but i did find another little girly. i like her int eh main picture- she looks very happy to be with this boy. :) i wonder if it was her boyfriend or jsut a boy who she had a crush on and was maybe very giddy to be able to snag a picture with him. :)

there were also many othe rpictures that i bought, but those i'lll post later. OH! at the same show , i bought my self the CUTEST ever little lamps! they are vintage german porcelain and on the stand of the lamps, there is a dancing girl. i found 2 of them- so they can be friends- they are in perfect condition! (thank you mama and papa cress and grandma and grandpa cress- it was bought with their birthday money! eheheh) they will go nicely on my new vanity that i also got for my birthday (thank you sissy!) i'll psot pictures of the lamps once i ahve my vanity up.

what do we have here? one last final forgotten memory... i found this in the same box, i found this western union telegram... perhaps a secret rendevous and it loks like they might've had a few!

do you guys have any favorite vintage pics? are they your own family or also found new friends???

morning sunrise...

saturday morning and the sun isn't quite up yet. i woke up at 430 in the morning and couldn't fall back to sleep. so i'm watching downtown 81. so far, its a bit slow... maybe i shouldn't judge the film quite so quick.

what is this little birdy looking at???

film review- it has very bad tunes and it has some pretty good tunes. mostly the acting is pretty, "meh." debbie harry looks of course like an angel, as she always does. it's on netflix streaming. i like the band who has a tall thin white man singing an an asian girl in red on drums and a few other bands/songs in the film... what do you think?

oh my! this little birdy is looking at you! :)

hope eveyone has a fabulous saturday!

birthday weekend...

yes, yes.. i'm horrible at keeping up with posts- as i read a bunch of blogs- my daily reads- i'm a bit not so great at actually updating my own! so here are a few pictures and a quick little post on how my birthday weekend went... i am now out of my 20's! eEeeEeeEeew!
first off- at work- it was awesome! :) my boss decorated my office, desk and compy with birthday streamers, sparkly birthday garland and all sorts of fun stuff! i was definitely surprised! they had a potluck and 2 yummy cakes! people at work are so nice to me! i got 4 different plants- orchids and mums- cards- baked cookies- gifts, etc.. ehhehehe. and my boss got me the best buster keaton book i had never even seen!!!! (there will be a post on my dear buster later this week). the pic above is me and cutie at the smoke house in burbank. * note long hair* i'm quite the foodie (yes, my yelp account is also collecting a bit of dust...) we got yummy crab stuffed shroomies and lobster tails- not quite what i expected- but still super tasty! :)

then- on saturday- we went to magic mountain- (cos i still technically act half my age most of the time). went with cutie and my sissy lollie- who was VERY excited to be this close to daffy duck! :) after some roller coaster action and some bbq mini-wiches- we were ready to go home... OooOH my achin' feets and hips... :)

sunday- i ran some errands with cutie and went to visit my mama and just took it easy for the rest of the day... and found myself a good pair of scissors...
... MONDAY...

in 2006- my dearest cynthia and i vowed to grow our hair out for peace!!! after being inspired by the documentary the US VS. John Lennon. we grew our hair out for four years!!! during that time- i trimmed it only once- for my wedding cos it was major scraggles! we had discussed cutting it, but something always held us back. we were growing it out for a cause- for peace! :) well- we are far from having any peace on earth- but i decided to finally cut it for a good cause. i grew it out for peace and was able to cut it off for cancer. :) i'm sending my hair to locks of love- i have a whole 15 inches left over!!! i dont' think i will ever cut my hair again and not donate it. i'm excited to send it off knowing it will go to some little girl or boy who needs it more than i do. :)

all in all- i had a fabulous birthday weekend!!! :)

i'm gonna buy a paper doll that i can call my own...

i went to Cinecon 46- a classic film festival in hollywood. cutie and i didn't partake in any of the films but we did go into the dealer rooms later in the evening and i found the cutest paper dollies! :) one of my faves - valentino of course... swooOoon! i didn't find buster keaton (my ultimate fave of the silent film stars)- but i did find norma talmadge. buster did marry his lesser known sister.. so, purely for this buster family connection- i bought it. i'm always peeved when i see things for chaplin and not buster- above is a smaller sized chaplin paper dolly that i found. i bought it... but would've much prefered a Buster paper dolly... i will have to make my own i suppose...

we then went to musso and franks to celebrate Cuties birthday. i did take a few pics- but blogspot is being difficult with downloading pics for some reason. :( i'll have to upload them a little later. :( happy birthday to my Cutie. :)
