Reminiscing for the Nostalgic

"The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealized past." - Robertson Davies, A Voice from the Attic

I'm Kelly; lover of the 1940s, Gene Kelly, and Jesus. This blog is devoted to early 20th Century history, period dramas, Doctor Who, and my sexy French lover, Jean Dujardin.

I don’t know a single woman who wouldn’t hit me with something if I gave them Pyrex for Christmas.

Seriously, Santa. You should know me better than this. Let’s start over: If we’re going practical, getting rid of that mountain of student loan debt the size of Mt. Everest would be a FANTASTIC start.

December 1955 by Decoupage girl on Flickr.

I’d sure love a Caddy for Christmas. Anyone keen?

I sure wouldn’t forget that Christmas present, especially if it came from a Cary Grant lookalike.

You can say that again. I’d like more excuses to cross the border.

Well sure, who doesn’t want a toaster? They’re the miracle of the 20th century, after all.

Don’t worry, Santa. Come 2013, all the kids will be wanting iPads.

Listerine, 1933.  “Actual tragedy can enter a girl’s life through halitosis…”  Illustration by James Schucker. 
(Personally, I think the men are running from the creepy dead animal she carries around.[Yes, I know it’s a fur.  Still creepy.])
