Vintage Love

 Since I was very little I have always admired the women in black and white films. I grew up in a musical family. My mom could sing and play the bass. I played a plethora of instruments in school. I sang and took some piano lessons. I had to quit not too long after I started, though. I did however steal some of my sister Allison's sheet music and sit in my room with my little Casio and teach myself how to play.
Allison is the one who got me to love music the way that I do now. There was always a musical on in my house. So thank you sister for helping me love my music. I guess she kind of shaped who I am now. We would sit around belting out every word to every song in
 Or, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers
I didn't say that I was good then, so Allison don't say a word. I am thankful she didn't have a camcorder then because a video would be on YouTube as we speak...

That love of those movies has turned into my love now of Black and Whites.
I could sit on my sofa all day and watch TCM!
Irene Dunne has fast become one of my favorite woman of all time. She starred in one of my favorite movies of all time. My Favorite Wife, with Cary Grant. Mmm Yum.
The woman from the 40's and 50's just had class and style.  Not like the hoochies from now walking around showing everything they have. No offense.
They just left a little something to the imagination. Even the Pin-Up girls were classy beautiful woman. I wish I could walk into a store and buy that type of clothing, but it just isn't that kind of time. I however, did realize there was a show called Mad Men and that was exactly the kind of life I would love to live. Well I have yet to watch it, so I might need to be careful saying that. But, the clothes are amazing. The hair is phenomenal. I can't get enough.
 I finally came across a few blogs the other day that absolutely blew my mind.
These women are so incredibly beautiful.
I always tell my husband I dream of being the quintessential housewife. To look the part, talk the part. I just need the accessories...
These woman are it.
I will become the woman I know I am on the inside.
I just might need to clean my own mouth out with soap.
Just check out their blogs and you will see what I mean.

This is just one of those things that makes me happy.
