My birthday was a smashing success! Thank you for all the sweet wishes, I really appreciated them! I got a few vintage goodies that I would love to share with you all. Aside from going to the WWII & NYC Exhibit, I received a great stash of vintage goodies from family and friends. I totally didn't expect it of course and am so grateful.
My sister 'n law came over and gave me two bags full of vintage presents; dvds, yarn (to knit), jewelry, a nightgown, and lots of other things. The cherry on top was six issues of Life Magazine from 1955 and they are AMAZING! I cannot wait to take photos of inside some of them for you! I think vintage magazines are a great tool to use to learn more about a decade, don't you think?
My sister n' law outdid herself! I just LOVE everything to bits!!
I just adore Beccie's passion for life and ability to empathize with a little ole mama like me. She knew how much I would go nuts for something like this and the fact that she went out of her way to do so shows not only that there are incredible and beautiful people in this world but also reminds me to pay it forward when I can one day! Thank you Beccie!!!
Another amazing surprise was this awesome film called Swing Shift. My good friend Trina at Retro Fashion Is My Passion has been telling me about this film for a while. So, it was such a sweet gesture on her part to send me my very own copy! I cannot wait to watch it! She knows how much I love films and I truly appreciate this thoughtful gift!
Another friend sent me a goody package as well but I haven't received it yet. I will share what I got once I do hehee I love surprises, don't you!!
Thank you again for your sweet birthday wishes and hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
