Punch of Red

To cha cha for words, is it just me or does this typewriter remind you of those exquisite high heel shoes, you know the ones with a with red soles, made by Christian Louboutin? This style 3 1/2-row Monarch Pioneer was made for only four months, from October, 1937 to Jan, 1938. Notice that the "O" is to be used in place of zero when typing expense reports for shoe shopping at Bergdof Goodman and Barneys. Well, a girl can dream can't she?


There is nothing better than a good kiss.

Take Flight

Carole Lombard, ready to take flight and always stylish.

Good Morning!

Could you imagine this face greeting you every morning? I sure could, but then again I happen to have a bit of a soft spot for Frenchies. If Joe didn't think they looked like bat-dogs we could very well have ended up with an adorable Frenchie instead of our beloved Blue. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't change Blue for the world, but Frenchies are pretty darn cute... even if they are part bat-dog.

Grace Kelly in a stunning evening gown made from refreshing mint green silk. Kinda makes me want Crème de menthe ice cream.

More Steam

Oh, how a long for those bygone days of slow travel and all the steam powered marvels of another time.

Flowering Crown

With her flowering crown and etheral face, this is definitely Alphonse Mucha's dream girl reincarnated.

Pocket Kitten

I have it on good authority that pocket kittens are going to be all the rage as this season's must have accessory. Just make sure and coordinate them with your shoes and handbag.

Seafoam Green

No matter if they are Roseville Pottery, McCoy or even unmarked, I can never get enough of vintage vases like these.
