Ava Gardner > 14th Century Social Classes

I always find the best books when I have tons of school reading to be doing. Ahhhh! This biography of Ava Gardner was at the thrift store. It's been really good so far, but it's a big book and it goes on some strange tangents every now and then about the most random people. It's weird thinking about how awesome old Hollywood actresses seem on the surface, when in reality they were often so tortured and unhappy. It's kind of sad to think about.
These bangles were also picked up on the same thrifting trip.  
This was a coloring book that teaches children that it's OK to say no. The writing is tiny, but the first page asks if the man shown was a bad person. If I knew someone who looked that cool as a child, I would have hung out with him every day. Just look at his outfit, he's obviously nothing but pure class and good style. That parrot on the other hand, is a total creepster. Everything about this coloring book makes me laugh.
I'm sure a lot of people reading this blog are also going into exam/finals season, so good luck! Summer vacation (hopefully) is only a few weeks away!


  1. The only way that is a bad person is if he does not share that joint with me!

  2. Hi!
    I just found your blog by seeing your comment (and agreeing with it) on someone else's blog...
    I love it, so I just added myself to your "followers"! In case you don't see it, I show up as "MoMoDeluxeVintage" instead of Dina, for some reason.
    That coloring book is too funny! I agree's definitely that parrot we should be worried about :-)

  3. love all of this!
