Strawberry Singh’s latest Monday Meme came along at a perfect time; I was working on this concept anyway after finding a photo on Pinterest I’d loved, and so why not take advantage of it? I never saw The Loretta Young Show when I was a child, but the reputation of it and its star has come down through the sixty years since it premiered on NBC.
Find out more about this show on the next page.

The young cabin boy’s day was over, his captain to bed; and he knew that he, too, should be rolled up in his own hammock with the powder monkeys below. But the men were yarning tonight to pass the time, and many of them had a soft spot for the young lad. They would tell him tales of the sea, taking pleasure both in their skill at spinning tales, and at his interest in their words. The boy hung rapt now as a scarred old veteran sailor drew on his pipe and let out a cloud of smoke to be blown away on the wind coming through the gunports, then spat out out the nearest one, and launch into a fresh story.
“There are those who claim that the world is round,” said the fellow; “that the Sea bends back upon itself without end and goes about the earth in a circle that never stops; that you can sail from one point to any other point on any other seacoast without flying away into the heavens. And they would be right…except when they are wrong. For there are those who know the spells which, for a time briefer than can be measured, yet longer than the world is old, can unbend the Sea and open the door to the skies, and a ship may sail away to a world beyond the world…the world of the Sea Queen’s folk.”

Say goodbye, my own true lover
As we sing a lover’s song
How it breaks my heart to leave you
Now the carnival is gone
More of the lyrics, and a video of The Seekers, after you turn the page.
Finally, a few minutes to sit down, shoot a few photos and write! I’ve started checking out the bare bones of Corona, the venue in Mignonne that is getting login-page and Destination Guide exposure. I haven’t made it farther than this mansion, but it’s as luxurious and Old World regal as one could wish.
I’m visiting here in this dress from Sascha’s Designs. Sascha Frangilli is definitely into HUD dresses lately, and this model, Joelle, is a nice one, with five different designs in black and white. This is one of my two favorites — simple and classic. It doesn’t need much in the way of display to liven it up, because it speaks so strongly for itself.
The one splash I take here is in the jewelry — something big, new and frivolous from Belle Roussel, but still holding to the primarily black-and-white theme. If Truman Capote were around to throw a Black and White Tea Party instead of a formal ball, I think that he just might approve….
