I remember what Father used to say: “If you see a man drowning, you must try to save him–even if you can’t swim.”
“Another Holocaust story?” might be an understandable reaction to “The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler,” but that would do a disservice to this fine Hallmark Hall of Fame production. It’s hard to think, in fact, of a story possessing a more poignant connection to the next “send the very best” holiday — Mother’s Day — chronicling as it does Polish Jews who gave up their children in the face of the growing Nazi threat, and Christians who selflessly took them in. So yes, by all means, another Holocaust story, provided that it’s this true, gripping and unfamiliar.
I love old things! I’ve been collecting Vintage and antiques since I was practically a kid! I love researching the Edwardian era. … I am so… sentimental and concerned with things of the past…my family and friends cease to talk to me at times. I love period movies: Horseman on the Roof, Wuthering Heights, The Woodlanders, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Bleak house, and John Adams. My favorite actress is Juliette Binoche, in the movie Chocolat. I know it’s just a movie but, I feel if people would act that kind the world would be a better place to live.
I am on a constant mission to discover treasures; I love one-of-a-kind items, no one else has. Because I buy too much, occasionally I sell my items; Vintage prom, purses, antiques and incredible Edwardian jewelry. Originally I started this blog for myself, my little space to keep all my research notes, price realized and my photo creations. It seems there is more to this blog now, hopefully you can feel my love for the past.
Have a lovely day! Love
