Some Things That are Beautiful

GR&DF the end of the week and two glorious days off!! Tomorrow the plan is to help Dale with his yard/garage sale - it is supposed to be a nice day so we shall see. Sunday I think that will be a stitching day for sure!!

Yesterday the mail brought a great package!! I traded for a chart with Janet and included with the trade she sent me was something extra - and what an extra!! Here is a snap -

All this beautiful over dyed floss by Home Sweet Home!! Thank you so much Janet!!!

Yesterday in the comments Beth mentioned "Chicago Style" kettle korn - and I was intrigued.... looking it up on the web I find that this is a combination of cheese korn and caramel korn - how delicious dose that sound!!!! I need to be on the look out for some this stuff -

Last night the flickers started off with "Affair in Trinidad" - 1952 - starring Rita Hayworth and Glen Ford. This was Hayworth's return to the movies movie. This was also a reteaming of Ford and Hayworth trying to recapture the spark they had in the film classic "Gilda" - 1946. "AiT" turned out to be very much a blending of "Notorius" and "Gilda" - but does not come close to either as a classic - it is a goodish noir film and worth seeing for the two steamy numbers that Hayworth does.... The second number is "I've been kissed before" - here it is.....



It is interesting to think that she is doing this number at a fancy schmancy Party and it is very Gildesque!! I enjoyed the film and it is short enough to not feel overwhelmed. The second feature of the evening was "Pygmalion" - 1938 - starring Wendy Hiller and Leslie Howard. I love this film and would heartily suggest a look. If you like "My Fair Lady" this is the first non-musical version. Wendy Hiller is stunning and really very funny in the glorious B&W film.

Stitching was non existent so no snap of that.

I think that wraps up the week sports fans!! Thank you again for your continued kind comments. Do stop by again!!

Take care,
edgar

So glad you liked the floss! By the way, in Michigan, we call that caramelcorn/cheesecorn blend "Mackinaw Mix"- it's a midwestern delicacy...

Great Goodness you really make my old black and White movie heart go pitter pat. I love this movie and the last one you had the trailer for. Love Rock and Jane together in that film.
