Some favorite things...

This is one of my favorite movies. Rosalind Russell is amazing. The costumes are amazing. If you have never seen it you should. TMC has it on today and of course I am hooked.
There is a musical version called "Mame" starring Lucille Ball which is also pretty great.
You will be a huge Rosalind Russell fan if you invest the time to watch this.
And who knew that Forest Tucker of F Troop fame could look so amazing :)
Here is another. Merry Hall by Beverly Nichols. If you have friends that are gardeners and Anglophiles this book is a must. It was written after WWII by journalist Beverly Nichols about his purchasing Merry Hall and his adventures there. This is the first book in the trilogy and I recommend them all.
Well, I think I will stitch and finish watching the movie :)
Don't forget you have until Christmas Eve to enter my Holiday Giveaway.

Hi Chris! I was just thinking today I needed a good book to read. I will have to see if I can find Merry Hall at the library. Thanks for the suggestion. :o)

I had the same thought as Myra. I've never read B Nichols and have always wondered. Thanks for the recommendation!
