Memorial Day Birthday

I should have titled this post Getting to Know Me - Part II. Today is Memorial Day and it's also my birthday! May 25, 1964 seems like yesterday, it doesn't really seem like it's been 45 years ago. Honestly, in my mind some days I still feel very young and actually wonder how in the world I have boys that are in their 20's when I still (yes at times) feel I'm in my twenties and we won't mention how I feel the other times. Of course if you ask them they'd probably say at times I still act like I'm in my twenties. It's like my mind doesn't really want to catch up with my real age. I was born in Galveston Texas, but never lived there. My mother had complications and had to go to Galveston to deliver me. She says that's why I enjoy the beach so much.

I've had a great Birthday weekend, started celebrating early and well just enjoyed thinking that this was MY birthday weekend. My birthday cake arrived early and it's an awesome sinfully rich chocolate cake that is oh so good!! My mother knew how much I had been wanting to rent Australia with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman so she just went ahead and bought it for me. I think I really liked this movie partly because of the era it was filmed in and the great clothes that Nicole wore. Her wardrobe is just timeless and did you know her luggage was made by Prada!



This outdoor scene is one I've looked forward to seeing ever since I saw pics of it. Can you imagine having an outdoor setting as beautiful as this.



The vintage items they must have scouted for to make this movie made me want to follow them around just so that I could see all the antique shops they went to. Now, wouldn't that be the ideal job, buying vintage items for movie sets or better yet selling your vintage items that could be seen in a move.



Well you'll just have to rent the move to see the rest. It's a great movie to see.



I've had a great Birthday weekend and hope everyone has a really great Memorial Day!!

  2. Hi there!
    This was a fun movie. The set was designed by Catherine Martin, who is married to Baz Luhrmann, the director. I believe that she kept some of the pieces that she found for their home.
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog and adding me to your favourites. Your blog has such many lovely images to look at, I could be here for ages!

  10. Happy Birthday!!! I was in high school when you were born...you're just a puppy...and I'm living proof that you can still be antiquing at 60(nearly)...it just takes a little longer to load the trailer...wouldn't have it any other way!

    I loved the movie...drooled through the whole thing...and not over Nicole's luggage...HA!

    Have a great one!

  11. Happy Birthday!

    Now, I had no desire to see this movie until I saw your post. It seems there is more to see there than the plot (which seems a little - not-so-exciting). I may have to pick this one up!

  15. Hi T! Happy B'Day! I didn't know we were the same age. Mine was on the 8th. We'll have to celebrate early next spring at the show. I loved the movie too. Sometimes I wish they didn't have so much unreal hi-tech stuff though. Have a great weekend Susan

  16. Happy Birthday! I have often thought a great job would be to shop and buy the antiques for a movie set...the joy of spending other peoples money and still feeding my yearning to shop! Hope it was a great one!

  21. Happy Birthday Theresa, your are as young as you feel is what I always say. As your elder I know what I'm talking about!!LOL I was born in 1957!!! What a wonderful gift - Australia is a fabulous movie. I always love movies from past eras and find myself looking in the background and then it's rewind...rewind! Hugh Jackman is such a hotty! Also younger than me...oh well, enjoy your day.
