 These are a few of my favourite things.  Maybe some of them are yours also!  A few of the things which catch my eye, inspire me, pluck at my heart strings, make me smile, or that I just enjoy. I hope that they will do the same for you.    
 
 
 
 
Vintage Baby Layettes . . . 
 
 
   

 
The original movie . . .  Father of the Bride.  With Elizabeth Taylor and Spencer Tracy.  I love everything about it.  


 

 
1950's day wear  . . . 
  

 
  
 
 
1950's evening wear  . . .  
 
 
 
 
1950's casual wear  . . .   
 
 
 
 
1950's night clothes  . . .  peignoir sets, etc.  So pretty  . . .  elegant . . . 
 
 
  
 
 
1950's hair styles, with perhaps the exception of the upper left hand corner  . . . 


 
 
Yes please  . . . . 
 
 
 
  
 

In a heart beat  . . . 


 
 
Big band music  . . .   
 
 
  
 
 
The 1950's malt shop  . . .  

 
 
  
 
 
1950's formals  . . . 


 
 
There are probably very few recipes that I might make from that era, but I don't mind looking at them for nostalgia's sake. In fact I rather enjoy it  . . .   


 
 
1950's Bungalows  . . . .
 
 
  
 

1950's values  . . . .


Let's just face it.  I'm a dinosaur  . . . 

A thought to carry with you  . . .

In The English Kitchen today  . . .  General Tso's Chicken for two.  Scrumptious. 

I hope you have a wonderful Thursday.  There is a heavy frost out there this morning.  I am off to the Back Doctor this afternoon.  I will probably not be posting tomorrow as Doreen's funeral starts at 9:20 so I will be busy getting ready for that.  Don't forget today and always  . . .

  2. Hi Marie~

    From one dinno to another...I love the 50's! I would have loved being an adult in the 50's. I was born in 1955, so I don't remember most of the 50's. But, I love the music, the fashion the attitude...all of it! That kitchen is adorable, I would love it too! I remember malt shops! There was one in the little town I grew up, I remember going there when I was a child, I can still remember how it smelled! My mom told me she used to go there on her lunch break and have a toasted cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato soup. Ahhh, the memories, loved going back in time!!

    Have a good day! Love you! XOXO

    Hugs and Love,
    Barb

  3. Hi Marie, love all the 50s stuff. I'll be thinking of you and Todd tomorrow. It will be a sad day for Doreen's family and friends. She lived a long life and it should be celebrated. Hugs, Elaine
