FLASH BLOGATHON: #CurateMyLife Classic Film Style

I’m delighted to participate in Margaret Perry‘s social media campaign/experiment to connect the public to a sense of heritage through sharing curated images.

Object that once belonged to a classic film star

Paul Becker, the mayor of Jacksonville Oregon , knows Ginger Rogers is my favorite actress so what do you think he gave me? A framed photo of Ginger Rogers and William Powell that actually belonged to her! She had it sitting on her fireplace mantle for years. He was good friends with Ginger. My first piece of classic movie memorabilia! Woohoo!

Picture of yourself with a classic film star

Don’t have one of these yet.  I’m really hoping to come back from the 2016 TCM Film Festival with at least one! : )

Selfie with Robert Osborne (of which I will be INSANELY jealous)

This would be an absolute dream!

Classic film book collection

I used to have a huge stack but gave them away for the sake of space.  Sadly, home can only fit so many collections. : )  This is a library book I’m currently enjoying.

Misc. – anything missing from this list that you feel is part of your classic film curated life. Be creative!

Favorite movie soundtracks on CD:

Grew up on these.  Could probably sing almost all of the songs to any passing stranger.  Restrain yourself Mary.
