Old soul....

I've been called this many times and, well, I guess those words accurately describe me. I love all things vintage and glam: Cary Grant, Katherine and Audrey, Jimmy Stewart......there's nothing better in my book. There's always an old Hollywood movie playing in my head, and if I could, I'd go back in time just to throw one of those lavish parties worthy of Hollywood royalty. I can see myself flitting about the room in my fabulous gown and massive cocktail ring. Oooohhh, I'm pretty sure I was born way too late. I've always loved that time period and the glitz and glam that come along with it. I think some of this comes from a picture of my Grandmother that I've always been in love with. To me, she looked just like the enchanting women of the silver screen. When I was little I knew she had to be famous when this picture was taken! In reality, lavish parties were not  a part of my Grandmomma's life, but in my eyes she will always be the perfect portrait of a lady.
