On Sunday, August 19th I will be attending The 7th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party which will give me an opportunity to make a dream of mine come true. Does anyone have a crush on the 1930's? I mean a deep, long-standing head over heels, mad crush?? I am sure my hand is not the only one that is up right now hehehe
I have been longing to learn more about the 1930's and longing even more to dress the part. So I decided to dedicate this week to the 1930's. My hope is that we all learn a little something more about this decade in history.
