RIP Shirley Temple

You may know already that I deeply loved Shirley Temple’s films as a child.

Maybe it’s because people used to compare us a lot (I was possibly her child doppelgänger. . . see below. ), but I have watched every movie that she has ever made. Several times over.

So, it is with great sadness that I found out that she passed away last night, on February 10th 2014.

Feel free to join me and drink a Shirley Temple in her memory this evening, preferably while marathon watching her films/songs.

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
