So here's the Scoop,
I have an obsessive passion for anything Vintage.
Surprise, Surprise.
For years (I really mean years) I've said to myself and to friends -
" I should try to sell Vintage goods on Etsy"
For some reason, I never followed though with the idea.
But Alas, it's happening DAMNIT!
Plus, with my sister on board too the Hunt is intense.
so if you constantly scavenge for the quality, design, and uniqueness of Vintage goods such as myself...prepare!

: Look at the size of that boy's heed.
Tony Giardino: Shhh!

Mrs. Miniver

Just finished watching Mrs. Miniver and ...
*deep sigh, wiping tears*
gets me every time.
such a beautiful film, but heavy on the heart.

As Idle as a Painted Ship

'I want to go all over the world
And start living free
I know that there's somebody who
Is waiting for me
I'll build a boat, steady and true
As soon as it's done
I'm going to sail along in the dreams
Of my dear someone

One little star, smiling tonight
Knows where you are
Stay, little star, steady and bright
To guide me afar
Blow, little wind, over the deep
For now I've begun
Hurry and take me straight into the arms
Of my dear someone
Hurry and take me straight into the arms
Of my dear someone'

It's de-lovely

'Give me books, fruit, French wine and fine weather and a little music out of doors'

yes, yep, thank you, always.
lets add to the end as if it were a fortune cookie:
-in europe-

This is not my life

Bits of History

'some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed,
and some few to be chewed and digested.'
