Starting My Garden

I am an avid flower lover. And not having a yard of my own takes its tole come spring time. This year, I've decided to make a container garden on our porch. This is the very beginning of said garden. Keep posted to how many spaces I find on this little porch for my flower collection.

Some gems from the booths in my row, but seriously, there are so many wonderful things here. I just need to sit in my booth so I don't go broke

Style Icon: Betty White

I have always loved Betty White. I find her absolutely hilarious, whether it is in her new roles or back when I watched Golden Girls with my mom. I did some searching and came up with these beautiful pictures of her in her younger years, mainly from the late 1940s-1950s.

Also, did you know the lady can sing? Check out the cute youtube clip

Original Teen Idols : Vintage Style

Wanted to share these couple of cuties. In today's age, it is totally normal for most our musicians starting as teen idols,  but in the music of the past there weren't all that many. Check out a couple of the original Biebers.

If you didn't know already, I spend a lot of my time working in one of the studios in which a lot of this music was recorded, Historic RCA Studio B. So, as you can imagine I have a special love for this music. It is a place where people come from all over the world to visit. It is common to have women in their 50s or 60s cry as they walk through the studio. They sit at Elvis' favorite piano and cry. It is so incredibly cute that after all these years they have such a love for the idols they held as children.
