Me and my sister went vintage shopping today and she said hey I have Grandmom's wedding dress in my closet do you want it? Hell yeah! What do ya know it's the same dress and hat in a picture of her and my Grandfather. We're not sure what happened to the embroidered neck piece. 2 great pieces of family history. #vintage #vintageclothing #vintagedress #1930s #1930swedding #familyhistory

Vintage silk Chinese embroidered coats and vest. 1920s-1960s
Made by Idealite, in Jersey City, N.J. back in the 1930s, this vintage world globe light fixture features a steel transfer painted orb set in a cast metal meridian lamp. The vintage world globe has gold oceans, a time dial at the top, and spins freely in its full meridian frame.
The metal globe is unmarked, but was most likely made by J. Chein, the toy manufacturer, who produced globes for various lamp companies from the 1920s to the 1960s. The early 1930s globe shows British Somaliland, Italian Somaliland (dissolved in 1936 upon the formation of Italian East Africa), French West Africa, Belgian Congo, Rhodesia, Persia, and Chosen.
The vintage lamp has its original cloth electrical cord — It’s time to get this fabulous globe lamp rewired. And, I need a lampshade — suggestions? Would love to find a vintage shade. #vintageglobe #globelamp #vintagehomedecor #worldglobe #globe #globecollector #globecollection #vintagefinds #vintagelamp #decoratingwithvintage #1930s #jerseycity #globedecor #vintagelover #globestagram
My Grandpa was sooo handsome and had the best hair !! I love that somebody took pictures back in those days and that they’re still in the family!! I can see every single boy in our family resembles my grandpa especially my cousin and they’re all really good looking ! #grandpa #vintage #vintagepics #1930s
The other interesting thing about this movie is noting how different Doug tried shaping his image away from his dad's. Where Sr typically played the hero and presented himself as thoroughly good and wholesome, Jr often went for different types of roles and opposite, choosing to play villains and bad/shady guys. In this movie, his character is accused of rape and murder. His character is ultimately is proven falsely accused. I have to give him credit for even taking a role in which he is accused of horrible crimes and is (almost) killed as punishment. #douglasfairbanksjr #lesliehoward #classicfilms #film #1930s #warnerbros #tcm
Went to California, ate some fish tacos, saw a tide pool, jumped in the ocean, sat in a hot tub, waved at some seals, bought this dress and turned 30.
SUNSET - I enjoy a #rum
&coke in the garden whilst my wife is working late. I know what I’d rather be doing! Family room with bi-folds open looks fab don’t you think?
I finally got around to watching a movie that I had on DVR for a while-Captured. I really enjoyed this. It stars Douglas and Leslie Howard as friends and WW1 airmen who get captured by the Germans and become POWs. But there is a secret,Doug's character confesses he had an affair with Howard's wife in civilian life. Angry and seeking revenge,he accuses Doug of rape and murder of an assistant at the camp but he is innocent. Its a precode movie but even then, its pretty surprising to hear them deal with topics like rape so openly. This was also an anti-war film, dealing with the treatment POWs of and conditions in those camps. It was pretty controversial too. It was banned in Nazi Germany. Recommended. Both Douglas and Leslie are excellent. #douglasfairbanksjr #lesliehoward #oldhollywood #classicmovies #classicfilm #precode #1930s #warnerbros
I can’t believe I am letting this rare 1930s set go. I’ve held onto it for almost seven years and how I acquired these will always be a special memory for me to hold onto forever, but the truth is the top is about two sizes too small for me and I have never had the heart to alter it. Not once in seven years have I worn this, so it’s time to let it go. I’m officially offering this iconic 1930s red and white nautical set for sale here on IG first. Fit for a size small. Full measurements are: bust up to 32” and waist on pants fits up to 27” total length is: 39” pants 20.5” top overall this set is in impeccable condition with only one small spot on the waist of the pants. The label inside reads Maggie Frocks. Asking 648 DM to purchase.
