And the Oscar Goes To...

Loved Ones, I had so much fun last year saluting the Oscars noms for Best Picture in vintage tablecloth prints that I couldn't resist seeing if I could do it again... this year with vintage finds. Adding to the challenge, including Pink Saturday in the fun.  Had to take a few liberties, but then Helen was gonna dot THAT anyway so...

Without further ado or Billy Crystal...

Will Willy (the whale) and some chandelier crystals Do?

In no Particular Order: The Tree of Life

Not vintage, but so pretty - Birches in Autumn by Natalie Jones

Hugo

Mantle clock handed down from my Mother, moon, vintage poodle pin (I know the dogs in Hugo weren't poodles but he's pink so mind your own beeswax! Yes, beeswax, also not appearing in the movie but if you the picky sort you will be instructed to mind it plenty during this post)


The Artist

Art Deco Ice bucket, silent movie review, cutest pink dog on the planet (He does look like Uggo, right? We aren't going to have to go over that beeswax thing again, are we?)

Extremely Close and Incredibly Loud

I pinked up the glass apple paperweight a bit, yes it's a cheat but it's gorgeous so...

Moneyball

My little collection of lucky old coins, not too old, not so lucky really. The large one coming out of the piggy bank was my father's lucky 1942 Australian penny. I have no baseball vintage, so stop asking where the ball part of Moneyball is. You have to relax. Really.
The Descendents

I do have other Hawaiian stuff but for some reason I couldn't find anything but this glass. If you think she's risque from the front, you should see the back view - that's why the teenybopper in red is so wide eyed and the one in pink is calling to tell everyone!


Warhorse

Have not see this movie. Will never see this movie. Just thinking about the story makes my heart heavy. On the up side, I got the 50s lamp for $2 at the World's Longest Yard Sale 2 years ago from a lady who used to run a boat bar - why don't they make THAT into a movie? I'd watch it.

Mdnight in Paris

On my list to see this movie, think I can squeeze it in before Oscar night?


 The Help   

Pink note scroll typewriter, southern belle, Flowers of the South. Yes, I SHOULD have had something to do with maids or housekeeping or... ugh, really, I had to use what I had around and... well, if you like maids so much hire one named Beeswax and mind her because I am out of here!
There you have it. I haven't seen them all... have you? But of the ones I have seen, I kinda want The Artist to win. Happy Pink Saturday and have an award winning weekend!

Joining Show and Tell Saturday! 
and Think Pink Sunday.

  3. My friend from High School is in the Artist! I haven't seen it yet, but I want to. I saw Moneyball, I think, but maybe not... I dunno. Fun, fun post! I watch the Oscars to see the purdy clothes...that's about it.

    1. That's cool about your friend. Maybe you can't remember if you saw Moneyball because you were hypnotized by Brad Pitt's cuteness.

  5. Helen, I enjoyed your post. You have a great sense of humor. And the same name as my mother! I just may have snuk a peak at one or two letters. And maybe when she is no longer living I'll feel freer to delve into that bit of history! I have hers to my dad too!

  6. Great MCM era collection and more. Hoping my piggy bank has enough pennies to make The Artist possible this weekend. Otherwise, I'm batting zero on seeing all. Happy Pink Saturday!

    1. Oops, meant to punctuate after eventually. Don't tell my writing students I slipped up. Fifty lashes with a wet noodle. (That's a vintage saying of my Mom's.)

    2. Punctuation is for weekdays! We can relax around here. Have a great weekend, Karen.

  12. Wow your mothers clock looks amazing and very grand. Loving that little pink dog very cute ;-) I haven't seen the Artist yet but i would love to at some point its just so expensive to go and view a film. Have a great weekend, dee x

  13. Dee - those mantle clocks must have been quite popular because I've seen a lot of them, they are gorgeous. I always say that's why I don't have one bit of guilt vintage shopping - I go to so few movies, (don't go to bars, get my haircut at Supercuts, use drug store cosmetics) spending money on old hats, jewelry and kitchen kitsch is a bargain compared to to a weekly movie outing!

  14. Love this post! And, as usual, you made me laugh. This time it was the beeswax thing. :)

  17. Happy Pink Saturday Helen Sweetie...
    Oh my goodness, what a superb write today. You really outdid yourself and I
    am so tickled to see this post. LOVE, LOVE the Oscars.

    War House is my favorite, but I also loved The Artist and The Help as well.
    I will have my supper early and be ready to sit and watch from start to finish.
    I am so excited. This is one of my favorite watches for the year. Can't wait to
    see the fashion brought out for the occasion.

    Thanks for the wonderful display dear one. Once again, you so outdid yourself.
    Love it. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

    1. Thanks for the visit - do you dress up to watch the Red Carpet doings? I Mostly like the clothes and the speeches, could do without the singing and dancing but now that Billy Crystal is back, it should be fun.

  22. I really really want some girly glasses - I saw a gorgeous set at an antiques market but they were too pricey.

    1. I am obsessed with girlie glasses. I have about 10 of them and usually found them tucked into big shelves filled with glasses with Smurfs and superheroes and beer logos on them.

  23. Stopping by for my daily dose of smiling and laughter! You did it again! Would you believe I haven't seen "The Help" yet. I'm cheap. I'm waiting for it to come out so I can rent it...if you tell me that it is already out, then I'll say that I obviously "need some help".
    Happy Pink Saturday!!
