Remembering Elizabeth Taylor


We lost a great actress, a beautiful lady, and a wonderful humanitarian today.

Remembering.....

Millions fell in love with
NATIONAL VELVET

 One of my very favorite movies

FATHER OF THE BRIDE





FATHER'S LITTLE DIVIDEND



A PLACE IN THE SUN


SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER


GIANT
Filmed in our great state of TeXas!





CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF

 



ELEPHANT WALK

A lesser seen movie, but one I love for her acting, her fashions, and the gorgeous scenery







CLEOPATRA


And so many others.

Miss Taylor had a great sense of fashion, a wicked and fun sense of humor,  an up and down again fantastic figure, and a true love of great jewels.





Her 69 karat Krupp Diamond


Those Violet Eyes

She will be missed by many.

Hugs,
Stephanie

What a great tribute to Elizabeth Taylor, I enjoyed looking at the pictures you shared of her! Stephanie I wanted to let you know I will be adding the little doll you were asking about to my website soon, maybe even to today if my web lady has time to add my new things, I bought her in an antique shop, but don't know much about her, I have a small collection of these dolls, so thought I would go ahead a sale her! Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

That was a lovely post Stephanie! She was truly a legend and I must say, I was shocked to hear she had passed away. She had so many health problems I just figured this was another one of them.

I love watching Father of the Bride, it's such a wonderful movie! I adore the part where Spencer Tracy is trying on his old tuxedo, hilarious! I didn't really watch too many of her later movies (post 50's) but I know she was wonderful in them.

Love your blog header!!!
