My perfect vintage christmas would start by waking up nice and cozy in bed with the smell of cinnamon buns, hot chocolate, and snow in the air. Presents are exchanged and tinsel sticks to our bottoms as we sit around the tree fighting to get our presents first. The fact that we're adults doesn't keep us from sledding down big hills and the fact that we feel like kids doesn't deter us from kissing our loves under the falling snow. Ham dinners, crackling fires, and perfect black and white movies go by in a whirl as Bing Crosby sings us into another Christmas reverie.

First up was The Changeling, the true story of a woman whose son goes missing, only to have the LAPD bring her a different boy and tell her it's her son. This movie can be infuriating and if you've seen it you know why, but the ending is 90% intensely satisfying. I wasn't at all interested in the story before I watched it, I just knew I wanted to see all the cloche hats and other flapper accoutrement...but the movie was AMAZING. I was so riveted and couldn't take my eyes off of the tv.
Second one up was (drumroll please).......
The movie that will be haunting my dreams for the next 33 years (hint hint, aren't I sly.) I am seriously terrified of Esther, but getting better. I loved Esther's whole old-world look: the coats, dresses, tights, velvet ribbons even if they did hide some nasty scars. Someday I want a daughter who dresses like this, though I will be making sure she is mentally fit and actually a child first. Ya know, just to be sure.
The moral of the story kids is that you should scare yourself witless on a regular basis, because pretty clothes are worth it. Oh, and that super long break between posts? Let's just pretend that never happened. Tata for now.

Then I will burn every bad memory I've ever had the displeasure to know.
