If you are in Beverly Hills this month try and stop by The Paley Center to see the exhibition of an upcoming sale of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia presented by Profiles in History. Not only are there costumes and oversized photos by Milton H. Greene but also a fascinating collection of her personally owned photographs from her early years when she was still known as Norma Jeane. Always gives me a thrill to be able to see so many pieces of Marilyn’s life in one place!!!

Most of the time these have been dismantled for the dome or the individual pieces inside. This one is intact. There is no fading of the red velvet or tarnishing of the gilt. If must have been lovingly cared for over the years. I have always been fascinated by these as souvenirs of a couple’s marriage. Each one is different and unique and tells it’s own story. The pillow on the chair holds the bride’s bouquet as in this example or may feature a head piece or other mementos worn on the day. I ended up buying the horse I posted so I am still pondering this one. I already have a collection of these so adding another takes a moment to decide. Good thing I know the dealer from many years of collecting over here in the UK!!!

Nice for a change. Been coming here since 1980 when I moved nearby. I have seen lots of changes but there is still a familiarity and comfort in the things that have remained the same. Lots and lots of memories...

Jet lag has been horrible this time for whatever reason!!! I ventured out to Petworth this afternoon so as not to fall asleep during the day at home. I wandered all around and didn’t find anything at the usual places I go until I came upon a shop that was closing and the saleslady said I was welcome to look around as she was just tidying up. I came upon this wooden horse from around 1800 and fell in love!!! I haven’t actually bought it yet but I am really tempted!!! If I wake up thinking about it then it may have to come home with me. (That is if I can actually fall asleep...). Wish me luck tonight!!!

Woke up this morning super early and couldn’t get back to sleep so I went to the Ford Car Boot Sale near Arundel in West Sussex at the crack of dawn.
Found a few things. The Art Deco pottery jug is from a company called Richmond and is hand painted, signed and numbered. The shell casket is a really old one and is in amazing condition considering how fragile it is. The University Pocket Case Mathematical Instruments (still contained inside) is The Students Complete Outfit with Quality & Accuracy Guaranteed. The retractable telescope is from W Ottway & Co. Ltd. Ealing London, 1915. The little book entitled The Storm of Life had to come home with me because of the lovely cover.
Now the oil painting in the next photo was so covered in brown smoke and grease on the glass that you couldn’t really even see it clearly. I took a chance and bought it and came home and cleaned it up and was pleasantly surprised at how well it came out!!! Nap time now...
Oops didn’t mean to post the oil painting photo twice!!!

Reliving and sharing my childhood memories of early Disneyland through to Lily’s own memories was quite the special treat!!! So many people came together to see it all and talk about their own experiences. There were quite a few families ranging in age. Everyone was in such a good mood. I believe that Disneyland really does bring out the best in people and brings them together. No wonder it is called “ The Happiest Place on Earth!!!
If you are in LA or plan on being here up until August 24th you have to go see this amazing exhibit collected by one man and his passion for all things Disneyland!!!
It will definitely make you smile!!! #lilycollins

Uniquely decorated mannequin from a well know swimsuit designer here in California many moons ago along with vintage photographs of her and her team along with her son. Thought I would add a window full of shells all bought from an estate sale from a couple who collected them over the years and create a boardwalk with found fencing and hung a bleached wooden sun also found. Crabs and lobsters along with the odd bits and pieces came from a party supply store. I thought it came out how I imagined it!!! Doesn’t always work out that way. Ha! Ha!

So no one had walked in the stores all afternoon and just when I decided to try and book a plane ticket and had been on hold forever a customer walks in. He was looking for a birthday present for a friend of his who is a pilot and needed something immediately. I was wracking my brain when between speaking to the booking agent, who finally came on the line and trying to think of what might work I remembered these great 1930’s first edition books. He was very happy with them and relieved to have found something and I was able to book my flight!!! Win!!! Win!!!

I found it up a narrow staircase, past a utility room on the wall in a service bathroom. The people that ran the estate sale said they always have one hidden treasure and are curious to see who will discover it. Must have been waiting for me!!! If anyone can translate this please do. I would love to know more about it.

Dictaphone was an American company founded by Alexander Graham Bell that produced diction machines. The name “Dictaphone” was trademarked by the Columbia Gramaphone Company in 1907, which soon became the leading manufacturer of such devices. This perpetuated the use of wax cylinders for voice recording. They could be played back and then typed onto pages using a typewriter.

The chair was just because it would make a great addition to a window display. It is on it's last legs but has a good look. The framed vintage romper was too cute to pass up. The mid century painting titled "Champs-Elysee" is by Mabel Landaker, a listed artist. She was born, Mabel Beatrice Holtz in Chicago, Illinois on June 11,1902. She specialized in painting impressionist portraits and still life works. She was also quite skilled in ceramic pottery work. She met her artist husband, Harold Charles Landaker, while attending the Art Institute of Chicago. Mabel also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Chicago, and the Carmel Art Institute. For about 15 years the couple were part of the Clyde Beatty Circus, and in addition to painting posters and wagons for the business, they managed some of the attractions. During this time they had two sons. From 1940 to 1846 they lived in Southern California. In 1946 Mabel and her family moved to the Monterey Peninsula and resided in Pacific Grove.

In honor of Derby Day here is a great pair of early Abercrombie & Fitch leather riding boots and a photo of future jockeys in the making. Of course the jockey scale had to make another appearance. Shame about the rain but major congratulations to the winning horse, Justify. What a race!!! #vintageridingboots ...

This is a set of Victorian jockey scales from the Doncaster Raceground made by Young's of London in 1884. It was also known as the Town Moor course. A map from 1595 already shows a racecourse there. In 1600 the corporation tried to put an end to the races because of the number of ruffians they attracted but by 1614 it acknowledged failure and marked out a racecourse. Doncaster is one of the oldest (and in terms of physical capacity-largest) established centres for house racing in Britain, with records of regular race meetings going back to the 16th century. It is located in South Yorkshire and is home to two of the World's oldest horse races, the Doncaster Cup (1766) and the St. Leger Stakes (1776). Some amazing jockeys must have been weighed in on this scale throughout the years. Amazing piece of British horse racing history!!!

Original sign from Madame Wu's Garden in Santa Monica where in it's heyday smartly dressed A-listers vied for seats amid white-tablecloth splendor. Madame Wu, born Sylvia Chang, opened the 40-seat restaurant in 1959 in a storefront on Wilshire Boulevard. It quickly became known for it's attentive service and simple, beautifully presented and well priced fare. It moved in 1969 down the block into a much larger space that sat 300 guests in four dining rooms. The proprietor's upswept hairdo, strands of pearls and oversized tinted glasses set the restaurant's elegant tone. She typically wore a brightly colored long silk dress topped by a floor-length embroidered jacket - which had been tailored in Hong Kong to her specifications - to greet the patrons who passed through the restaurant's crimson door. Some of the more notable guests included Princess Grace of Monaco (Grace Kelly), Mae West, Gregory Peck, Julie Andrews, Charlton Heston, Paul Newman, Frank Sinatra, Mia Farrow, Kirk Douglas, Cary Grant, Jack Benny, and Carol Burnett to name only a few. Madame Sylvia Wu dished up Chinese delicacies to presidents, stars and dignitaries from around the world for nearly 40 years before closing her doors at age 82 in early 1998. She had become a celebrity in her own right and was highly regarded by those who knew her. She celebrated turning 100 in 2015!!! #madamewu #gifts #uniquegifts #unusualgifts #designer #decorator #setdesign #vintagedecor #restaurantdesign #wehoshopping

A few more finds from the NBC Universal 'Garage Sale' last week. The Wolf dress form had just been brought out but it looked nothing like this. It had layers and layers of hip padding and four bras!!! Before I bought it I wanted to make sure that it was alright underneath all that. There was quite a pile before I got down to the actual form. More and more layers kept coming off. It was pretty funny!!! It was well worth it in the end. The stand is the original one with a working foot pedal that raises and lowers it. The small hammered copper topped table and cool vintage pot were just added bonuses. I can't wait for the next sale!!!

I saw this the first day at the Seymour Stein estate sale and had to do some research on it as I found the makers name on the side. It turns out that it was made by C H Hare Patent and is a brass 19th century (around 1880) adjustable revolving piano chello chair or piano stool in the original button Victorian upholstery. C H Hare and Son is listed from 1832 at Crown Works, Tyseley, Birmingham and was listed in Whitakers Red Book 1914 as Manufacturers of Loose Leaf Metals, Automatic Machines etc. Amongst their specialties are listed music stands and stools, pianoforte tools etc. Luckily it was still there on the Sunday and I snatched it up first thing after the gate opened. I guess it was meant for me!!!
