I recently started my last semester of college! Meaning, I likely won’t be able to post as often as I would like since I’ll be at my sewing machine & dress form up until May! For now, I’d like to share my latest “obsession,” PINTEREST! For those of you who don’t know, Pinterest is a resource to create online inspiration boards. You can search a wide array of categories, and find the most amazing pictures, recipes, DIY tips, etc. It’s a fantastic source of inspiration for me these days when I have to come up with many designs for college. Feel free to FOLLOW ME on Pinterest And please let me know if you have pin boards as well! Below are a selection of some of my favorite pictures I’ve discovered thanks to Pinterest! I hope y’all start pinning! Here’s a fair warning though, it’s addicting!
Today marks the birthday of Hollywood legend Lucille Ball. She was born in 1911, meaning she would have been 100 years old on this very day! Life.com has released exclusive, unpublished photographs of the woman we all knew and loved as Lucy Ricardo on the classic TV sitcom I Love Lucy (1951-1957). Below are two of my favorite photographs from LIFE:
Lucille in 1942, prior to I Love Lucy:
Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz in 1958, 1 year after I Love Lucy.
This morning on The Today Show on NBC, they discussed the never-before-seen photographs:

My friend Cheryl, she has a great blog by the way, just recently brought this photo of the Queen and Prince Philip to my attention. I had to share it as well. The above photo in black and white was taken on their honeymoon in 1947! The second photo is from their diamond wedding anniversary in 2007 (60 years!). So lovely!
According to the UK paper the Daily Mail, “The Queen met her husband as a 13-year-old in 1939. Throughout her teens, she stayed devoted to Philip, who proposed in 1946 at Balmoral. The engagement was controversial and both of Elizabeth’s parents were initially opposed. It was not until April 1947 that George VI (played by Colin Firth in ‘The King’s Speech’), gave them permission to marry.”
Here is a photo from their wedding day in 1947:
