A Little News for a Sunday Morning

I wanted to share some goodies from followers who were kind enough to share the information with me.
"Come follow us to find some grooovy stuff!"

After my post last week about Cabinets of Curiosities, G at Doves Today wrote to me and told me about a Cabinet of Curiosities near her in L.A. If you are interested in reading more and seeing more, visit the Museum of Jurassic Technology. It looks fascinating! And be sure to visit G - she always has the best photos - and her tours around L.A. are fun, fun, fun!

The Queen of Venus wore her opera length gloves to get this information!

Then, Karen Harvey Cox of A Scrapbook of Inspiration forwarded on a blog to me that she thought I would enjoy. Indeed I did! (The fabulous coffee cup sign with C'est si Bon! at the top of this post is from the blog.) I think a lot of you would enjoy it too, so I'm sharing it with the rest of you. It's called Lisa Golightly - Vintage Finds Real and Imagined. She has some terrific stuff - check it out! Oh! And if you're not familiar already, you must visit Karen's site to see her paintings and her digital images and her .... it's a wonderful, warm and welcoming blog!

Because everybody needs to know the definitive guidelines!

And, finally, yesterday, after my post about Pink Not Being Just for Girls!, Chrisy of Art Decadence left these very interesting quotes from yesteryear. How times change!

"At one point pink was considered more of a boy's color, (as a watered-down red, which is a fierce color) and blue was more for girls. The associate of pink with bold, dramatic red clearly affected its use for boys. An American newspaper in 1914 advised mothers, "If you like the color note on the little one's garments, use pink for the boy and blue for the girl, if you are a follower of convention." [The Sunday Sentinal, March 29, 1914.]

"There has been a great diversity of opinion on the subject, but the generally accepted rule is pink for the boy and blue for the girl. The reason is that pink being a more decided and stronger color is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl." [Ladies Home Journal, June, 1918]

So, now we know! (...and Lustre Creme was dead wrong!) Be sure to visit Art Decadence for lots of interesting and fun photos from fashion to art to (yes, I'm going to say it) a baby doll with a full body suit tattoo!

Tell the truth, now. Don't you just want to stick a pipe in his mouth and plant him in the front yard?
And, finally, one more piece of updating. Everybody who guessed correctly that the Who-Is-She photograph was Audrey Hepburn as a child (which was almost everyone!) was spot on! You all are soooo darned good! I have the cleverest followers ever! It's a good thing I didn't offer a prize - I'd be spending two days just addressing mailing labels! Speaking of prizes, however ...

Let's draw us a winner here!
So many people entered ... and left such wonderful and kind comments - thank you! I went to the Random Generator, and it chose number 2. How unusual is that for such a small number to come up?! I guess it was meant to be that I was
to crown as the winner of the Marie Antoinette Mini Theatre, none other than
Marsha of Sassy Mini Dolls!

Congratulations Marsha, Marsha, Marsha! If you will email me with your address, I'll package this prize up and get it into the mail for you this week.

Everybody else - thanks so much for entering. I wish I could award everybody the prize. But, then, it wouldn't be a prize would it? Please visit Marsha's site if you haven't already - there's always something fun or pretty there!

Hmmmmm. Now just what will we have for breakfast. We already decided last night to play hookey from I can make a big 'ol mess! I'm thinking walnut pancakes with warm CT maple syrup. Sound good to you? Me, too!

Hope you have a lovely Sunday - but don't spend the whole day lounging around ...
Go make something beautiful!
