The summer has gone so fast and now September is here which means that the warm days are almost gone (sad face). It’s been a wonderful summer with August ending up to be somewhat of a quiet month which has been nice. BUT it all kicks back into high gear starting this Friday. I’m off to Red Hot Blue Rockabilly Weekend right here in Ontario (Brockville), then off to a friend’s wedding outside of Quebec. We close out the fun with a mini road trip with the hubby. It’s going to be really great and I’m looking forward to it (follow the fun on Instagram).

In the mean time I have been reading some really great articles and watching some really fun videos that I would like to share with you today.

While it’s not great that the world lost at MGM Musical star Gloria DeHaven at age 91, it is interesting to read what a life she lived. Thanks for the movies Gloria.

Have a great remaining week and weekend friends! I’m going to be off for one week on this blog to enjoy my trip with the husband, but as stated above just follow me on social media and it’s like I was never gone.

  1. Those were fun. I never get tired of the Watch the Birdie video with Martha Raye! Love Anita O’Day’s version of this song, too!

    And is the ole blue-eyes Frankie with Olivia? WOW!

    Have fun at your Weekender! Thanks for the tips!

  2. I read that article about the vintage gals from New York. Love to see ladies who are into the vintage scene.
    And those are some great pix of old theaters in Toronto.
    Your post also reminded me I need to get myself a snood! Been meaning to for the longest time. I think they look fabulous whenever I see someone wearing one.
