Turner Classic Movies = love

Hello all! I seriously love classic movies.  They have been the one constant in my life regardless of where I live, what job I've had, what art I've been into, or what stage my life was in.  They have influenced me so much that my wedding last April was sprinkled with vintage influences.

So, I have made a list of the movies current waiting to be viewed in my netflix rotation.  A few I have added based on another blogger, Mandi of ::Here's looking at me kid:: who runs a regular feature called Movie Monday. It seems she shares the same love of old movies that I do.  It always amazes me just HOW much creative/design inspiration I can get from an old black and white movie.  The envelope please...rather, here is the list!

  1. The Palm Beach Story
  2. Christmas in Connecticut
  3. Splendor in the Grass
  4. Royal Wedding- Here's looking at me kid Rec
  5. Guess who's coming to dinner
  6. Million Dollar Mermaid
  7. From the Terrace
  8. Sex and the single girl
  9. The Seven year itch
  10. Strangers on a Train
  11. Gigi
If you have another recommendation, please let me know.  I have tomorrow off *woohoo* since I worked on Saturday.  Even better the hubs has the day off too.  Sleeping in, lunch together, shopping downtown.  I am so excited to have no "real" agenda.  I hope you all have a great start to your week too!


  1. You look radiant in that picture! (And I looove the green shoes!)

  2. Sounds like a perfect day off, or a perfect day in general! I love TCM! This is the channel I watch during the week.
    One of my all time favs has to be Sabrina with Audrey Hepburn. No matter what I am doing, just like when the Godfather 1-2 is on, I have to watch it. Sabrina and her style actually inspired my upcoming wedding. I think it's cute how these movies inspire us! It's an artist thing I think ;0)

    Some of my all time favorites:

    Gaslight with Ingrid Bergman
    American in Paris (anything with Gene Kelly basically)
    Double Indemnity
    Now Voyager - Bette Davis and Claude Rains
    Mrs. Skeffington - Bette and Claude again

    Anything Hitchock
    especially Marney (omg hot Sean Connery when he was younger...any day Sean...any day! lol)

    OMG! Sabrina is my ALL TIME FAVORITE. I even like the current one with Harrison Ford. Thank you for adding to my list. I have never seen gaslight or New Voyager. I am adding them to the list :)
