I have had this swoon worthy 1930’s collar necklace for several years and acquired it from my grandmother. I have finally decided to part ways and search for a new home for this wonderful necklace. It does have one spot with missing beads but for its age it is in amazing condition. Check it out in the shop with more jewelry piracies posted today.

Here is one of the plans we found shoved in the third floor closest. It’s amazing how much detail is in it as well. There were 2 different versions drawn up and we have a total of 6 blueprints. We also found the original contract of work with this. The contract answered almost all the questions we had when wondering if things were original or not and really outlined how much pride they took in their work until many of the new construction homes today. #oldhouse#oldhouselove#blueprint#colonialhouse#colonial#pittsburgh#farmhouse#1930s

Had to dress colorful for my dinner with my colorful kitty @thriftybanana ... I made this suspender skirt with an authentic 1930s pattern and deadstock 1990s fabric.... Y2K mania prints and logos are so reminiscent of 6th grade for me 🤣🤣🤣 worn with 1940s wedges and socks, 1960s Fox fur trim coat, 1960s Pucci bag, and 1930s sweater. #vintage#diy#sewing#design#fashion#ootd#pucci#1930s

One of Bette's instructors in drama school was Martha Graham. In The Lonely Life, Bette recalled: “Our instructress for dancing was Martha Graham. Her job was to teach us how to use our bodies properly. I worshiped her. She was all tension—lightning! Her burning dedication gave her spare body the power of ten men.... I had already learned that the body via the dance could send a message. Now I was taught a syntax with which to articulate the subtleties fully. She would with a single thrust of her weight convey anguish. Then in an anchored lift that made her ten feet tall, she became all joy. One after the other. Hatred, ecstasy, age, compassion! There was no end, once the body was disciplined....To me, Martha Graham is one of America’s few authentic geniuses. I will always be grateful that I was lucky enough to study with her.
A mutual friend recently repeated this great woman’s happy observation that amongst dramatic actors, I have always expressed an emotion with full body—as a dancer does. If this be so, I would like to remind her that it was she who made it possible. Every time I climbed a flight of stairs in films—and I spent half my life on them—it was Graham step by step.” |
Graham later said of Bette: "She had control, discipline, electricity. I knew she would turn out to be something out of the ordinary." 💜
