More from the fabric book

A love story

Darcy's note to James, below, tells it all.




 It was the days of Lucky Lindy



And Gramophones with love songs


 Smoky Jazz Songs






And girls with more freedom than they'd ever known before...



Dancing all night until the sun came up.

Lovelovelove this one -- as you know, I'm a TCM addict and instead of anyone today Norma Shearer is my favorite actress (she retired in the early 40's after being offered both Scarlett O'Hara and Mrs. Miniver and turning both down). I love the history of this period. My dad was born in '27 and one of his aunts was a bonafide flapper who came to no good. Lots of great true stories there! You did a fab job of recapturing the feel and the mood, bravo! xoxo

I LOVE this, both the idea of a fabric book and all the 'ingredients'! Reminds me of a project I did at college, it was a textile piece, so I made the sketch book from fabric and stitched all the text for it - I'd completely forgotten about that til now!x

Wowza! Your pages are the cat's pajamas....or maybe the bee's knees.
And NO, I am NOT THAT old, but I do love those old movies.

I love this era!

Have you watched Midnight in Paris yet?

I hear it is quite good, and time travels to Paris in the 1920s.

I am planning on watching it later this afternoon.
