One of My Favorite Images…

I love this image. I have a thing about pin up models/art from the 40s through the early 1960s – I love the representation of femininity and sex. It’s not demeaning or nasty, it’s a celebration.

I had an entry to write and then I read this really, truly sad story and so meh, I’ll leave you with this image instead.

    Lauren what a beautiful image. I love pin ups like these, just gorgeous and so decidedly feminine and sexy.

    I’m sorry about the sad story . . . there are always a share of those during the holidays.

    Just checking in to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    She’s lovely! I love the movies from these times, too. Gorgeous. They’d throw up their hands in shock if they saw me in my ratty T-shirt and shorts today 😀

    Sorry about the sad story! But the image sure is lovely. Here in Minneapolis, there’s this bar that uses those images from that exact artist for all their advertising and signage. It makes the bar look really cool, but when I went in there once, it was just sort of a lame sort-of sports bar in a mall. Oh well.
