I’ve always been fond of the original Christmas in Connecticut! It always makes me laugh.
While decorating our Christmas tree I had Rob and I watch this (he’d never seen it before).
Oh how I loved the hair in this film so very much!
I have seen the ’59 version of Imitation of Life a few times, and I usually did so because I love Sandra Dee a lot and always wanted to wear all her clothes (the first vintage dress I bought was one that I thought looked like a Sandra Dee dress). The clothes in this film were spectacular, but unfortunately I couldn’t find too many screen shots from the film online)
That Hamilton Woman was a little boring at times, but I have never seen a film with both Vivien Leigh and Lawrence Olivier together (they were married for a period of time). The wardrobe was amazing. They did modernize (for that time) a bit of the old periodical clothing of the time. . for instance there is a picture of the actual Hamilton Lady and Vivien Leigh. . You can see what I mean considering 1941’s fashion too.
Of Course A League of Their Own makes me want all of their dresses all the time, and the hair was beautiful. Please let me invade their costumes from the film!!
Somewhere in Time was a very boring film. It was also so depressing. I didn’t feel a connection to the characters but the hair and clothing: YES PLEASE take me back to 1912! haha.
Music Suggestions
Lately I’ve been listening to Christmas music. Here are just a couple that I suggest that I continually have been playing in my head too – more soon. . I just am running out of posting time!! sorry!
Louis Armstrong – ‘Zat You Santa Claus
Bing Crosby & Doris Day – Baby It’s Cold Outside

  1. Aw, these are wonderful suggestions!Can you believe I've only listened to TWO Christmas songs so far this year?Unacceptable!Hope you and your family are having fun gearing up for the holiday!<3 Grace.

  2. I never tell anyone this, but Somewhere in Time is actually one of my all time favorite movies. It's just so hopelessly romantic. And yes, just hopeless. I love a good movie with a horribly sad ending. And that's why i never tell anyone that I love it… haha

  3. I told you that you need to see Buffy the show first 😉 It isn't like the movie at all. Buffy is not a valley girl and she is only a cheerleader for one episode. I would suggest the first few seasons. It starts getting dark at 5. A lot of people don't like 6, but 7 is pretty good. I would suggest not watching it around the little ones since it has scary stuff and some episodes have sexy stuff. I don't like the sexy parts..I always look away haha. Angel is the show that comes after it and it is pretty dang good as well. I am sorta a nerd now haha

  4. Mandi – Somewhere in Time really is depressing. I too am a hopeless romantic, but at the same time I just felt like I couldn't connect to the characters even falling in love. I did love the monologue in the play though! I just think of so many questions when I watch it such as "How did she know he was from the future that she was able to find him when she was old?" for instance. My brothers adoreeeee this movie though. It is in their top too. Leanna – I was raised on classic films, and just find them to be amazing. They are also so clean and nice to watch around my boys since I don't have to worry for the most part about vulgarities or nudity or anything. I HIGHLY recommend Imitation of Life for you because it is about two women who come together raising their two girls – one of the women is a black woman who has been raising her half white child (in which the girl has a hard time coping with having a black woman for her mother). . .of course this was in the age before Martin Luther King Jr. even came around in popularity, so you can figure how the times were. I always loved this movie so much because it shows that it doesn't matter what colour you are, because you will be loved and should be happy with who raises you. It's a very strong film! both versions.Mellie – Since Buffy the movie came out first I wanted to watch that first. Rob and I cracked up the whole time it seems, but we know that the show is different. I will watch the first season at some point to see if it is worth it to me.

  5. Grace – That is sad that you haven't listened to more CHristmas music! I hope that when my internet is back up I can post more. I have to make these posts from my parents' house at the moment though.Allison – yey!
