Hand Towels, Old Movies and Poetry

Drama, mystery, romance, dancing, intrigue, cool threads and witty humor...

...not to mention hand towels and poetry.

I've been watching old movies these past weeks. Among other things, one of my Christmas endeavors involved the applique and embroidery of some hand towels (about 15 of them - and counting). 

As a backdrop to my time in front of the tree, while sitting on the couch as I stitched, old movies and the likes of Fred Astaire, Spencer Tracy, James Stewart, Jean Harlow, Cary Grant and Elvis Presley have been my companions.

My, How Times Change

Remember the days when folks would come home from their travels and invite everyone over for those infamous slideshows of their vacation photos? Having to humor friends and relatives by watching their slides became a running joke. Back then I guess people didn't always value spending their precious time yawning through the poorly and/or unimaginatively composed sights and scenes from other people's travels. But times have changed, no?
