The Old Grey Mare, She Ain’t What She Used to Be

I know this movie should make me cry, and it does…with tears of laughter!!! I think soon everyone will be wearing cardigan-cowls and sweater-skirts. They are so slimming. I plan to start as soon as I finish my Grey Gardens diet, which mainly involves cans of Purina pate, saltine crackers and checking your weight with binoculars…

Grey Gardens 1975 Edie Beale, Edith Bouvier Beale

Co-dependency at it’s finest! Jackie O’s quirky relatives recall richer times and take a sentimental journey in their minds. One of the original reality shows. Should we be sad about this, yes. Did they need help, it was offered.  Can we stop watching? NO!



How to Succeed in Knitting Without Really Trying

I love when knitting and crochet show up in other things that I love- like movies.  It  amazes me how often fibery goodness appears in films.  Sometimes it’s in the costumes, sometimes it’s part of the plot.  Since I am a Netflix nut this happens fairly often and I thought I’d share the fun with you!

First spotting:  How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying 1967 starring Robert Morse, Michele Lee and Rudy Vallee.

Winder washer J. Pierpont Finch decides to get ahead in the business world by the book. Funky Fosse choreography and Frank Loesser lyrics bring this sixties musical to life.

“I knit, too!  I find it good for my nerves.”
