Packing the Bare Necessities

I'm going on summer holiday this Friday, so I've started packing. When it comes to jewellery I just pack the bare necessities (as Baloo sings):
Bombshells don't travel light! If I can't choose I take all of it.
All of the jewellery in the photo is vintage, except for the Titanic set and the pink watch at right.

Most of my jewellery is from the fifties. I always bring a lot of different lucite confetti ear clips, clamber bracelets, a few necklaces and LOTS of charm bracelets. I LOVE charm bracelets. The pearl necklace at the bottom right in the tiny purse is made of very old genuine pearls. You cannot buy such pearls anymore.
I started with a nice little purse for my jewellery, now this lucite box-purse is filled to the top. Hmm! ;)

I don't master the art of limitation.

I wish you all a GREAT summer! :)

Vintage Car Exhibition

Last Sunday we attended a vintage car exhibition. We just came, parked my sweet, old Opel GT and walked around in the sunshine admiring all the lovely cars. Here it is in the line:

I love vintage MG's almost as much as Morgans:

This one was my dad's first car, it was already considered vintage 45 years ago. His was named "Rolling" and kept falling apart everyday - but we all loved it (it is a Morris 8):

Dear husband and I could agree on this one - a Ford A (I thought it was a B), cute old car:

I'm not an Opel fan, I only love the GT model, but this one is very lovely too, reminds me much of a Buick:

I want a shiny, black Citroën from the thirties before I die. I'm sure it will become me when I'm an elderly lady:

The car that became James Dean's destiny:

A little, happy frog - not elegant but very cute (Austin Frog's Eye):

We could also agree on this cream coloured beauty:

Me, eating a quick and simple lunch:

"Jensen" is a Danish car, here is "The Boss" as his number plates states:

Finally, a relaxing rest at the end of the day:

Vintage Newspapers

Yours truly hunting for vintage newspapers under the roof:

Sorry about my clothes - not much bombshell glam! It is old clothes I work in, but the wooden shoes are pearly pink and the cardigan vintage, supposedly from the fifties.

When I have read all the great vintage newspapers - they were all from 1933-34 - I will scan and upload fun drawings, photos and ads.

Indiana Hunk!

Have you seen the new Indiana Jones movie!?
I have!!! He is my favourite hero and I have to admit it - he is still delish!

The action takes place in the mid-fifties, my favourite era. The action opens with a bang and a loud and great Elvis song. But don't go to the cinema if you enjoy petticoats and fancy fifties dresses, there's not much of that kind'a fifties stuff.

But back to Indy - in the movie his gotten 20 years older, but in real life his turned 28 years older. But he is still smashing, he still makes most of his stunts himself (uhm, a real man!) and I read in an article that his younger player had to work hard to keep fit enough to follow his tempo. Here he is, the lastest photo of my all time hero - what do you think? As son said: after ten minutes you forgot he was an old man. :)

Son and I saw the very first Indy movie the day before and it was a great idea, since you remember and recognize a lot of things in the action.
