Gorgeousness X 10 !!!!

doing this post has brought tears to my eyes...
you see, I remember James Dean, I remember President Kennedy,
yes, I was very young but even then they were iconic men in my life.
and, God, weren't they beautiful people?

  1. Oh wow what a post. Six degrees - or less - of separation.

    I also remember James Dean - just. And Kennedy more so. In fact my husband taught his daughter Caroline at Sotheby's in England and she played with my baby daughter in the 1970s.

    Such a beautiful necklace but can't find it on your website (BTW many links don't work). I will try emailing you. Best wishes, Cx

    1. If one of our merchandise photos doesn't open it means the item is SOLD OUT, and it redirects you back to the main page. We will work on making this easier to deal with. The necklace will be up tonight. Thank you for telling us and leaving the comment.

  2. I'm just wondering why it is not possible to pin images from your website. Thank you.

    1. Goodness, I thought you could pin from my blog. I'll check it out.

    2. Hi - I tried again to pin an image just now and received the following error message "“Sorry, couldn’t find any pinnable images or video on this page.” Thanks in advance if you can correct this.

  3. Pierce Brosnan.....such a handsome man, despite his dreadful singing in "Mamma Mia", I have almost managed to erase that from my mind!!
    He always seems like a very decent man, glad to hear he was that way in real life.

    Gorgeous images Marsha Xx

    1. Yeah, I forgave him for Mamma Mia too. He's one of the best isn't he?
      Love you, Simone....

  4. Wonderful pics, Pierce Brosnan is the best in my opinion.
    Have a nice week.

  5. soaking up the lovely gents and gems and style!

    smiles to you.


  6. Beautiful images Marsha..I LOVE the sheep; they made me smile. I too have met Pierce Brosnan at a Polo Match....a gorgeous gentleman indeed!
    We have the same taste in clothes and men ;-)
    Have a wonderful week. xx

    1. Couldn't resist the sheep, so I'm happy you smiled a bit because I did too.
      And, yes, we seem to match with apparel & gentlemen, don't we?

  7. Heavens...what is this post??? Sheer, utter, beauty and a reminder of how many incredibly beautiful things there are in life...oh the gorgeous....and the men....well...what needs to be said really....the clothes...the jewelery...outdone yourself here with a timely balance to the turmoil of last week...x

  8. I love all those gentlemen...I too remember them, speially President Kennedy, even though I was a kid. My mom was crazy about James Dean and I thought he was gorgeous too. My first love and idol when little, was Elvis too. Love the passarella cloths too; the white coat is to die for.. as I love cloths and shoes..I do love dressing up! Have a super week.

  9. Pierce is one of my favorite actors; loved how he stood by his first wife when she was ill. Those angora goats are AAAdorable! Marsha, I don't think many people know I started out with two adorable Pygora goats...pygmy x angora...Agatha and Esmeralda: The Fabulous Goatini Sisters...I wrote little stories about them, their antics were wonderful. Many thanks for that lovely photo; I can just feel that fabulous fiber.

  10. Marsha, not sure my comment is going thru...?
    Anyway, Pierce is a favorite and has been ever since he took care of his first wife while she was ill. What a gentleman of the old school!
    Love those Angora goats; not many know I started out with Pygora goats...pygmy x angora and they were totally cute! I called them
    Agatha and Esmeralda: The Fabulous Goatini Sisters. They were a hoot! Into everything and I still have photos and stories about them. Love them dearly; Marsha, thank you for those wonderful memories and that terrific photo...I could just kiss them to pieces!

  11. Just the MOST beautiful post Marsha!! You have the best taste....N.xo
