A Morning with Friends
I also had some vintage magazines hanging around, since these "ladies" happen to be my book club friends. After all we're used to discussing what we read. Of course we're also used to meeting at night with wine and laughing into the wee hours. We did the laughing part! But our discussion (and laughter) had more to do with the old cigarette and bathing suit ads and the creepy looking recipes and stylish home decorating tips!
Besides... we've discussed fifties classics like Catcher in the Rye and On the Road in past gatherings. Sometimes we need to just let loose with a little daylight and caffeine!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
