norma jeane

Well, I know from experience that moving is a pain in the butt. This time is no different; but on top of it all, I've had no mail to cheer me up, bleh. But I guess that's for the better because I'll have less things on my plate to get done.

Also, I'd just like to say that you should STOP (:P) sending mail to the 410 16th AVE address now, and I'll have a P.O. Box address for you between Saturday and Monday. I've been wanting to get one for awhile and this blog has leaned me towards it more and more, so hopefully I'll be able to find one near by. (The post office I had planned on has none available, drat!)

So, if you've sent anything in the past week to my old address, I'll probably make the drive over here every day just to check, but I will be permanently out of this house on the 1st, and moved out over the weekend.

Not to make it seem as if I've totally forgotten the basis of this blog, my incoming & outgoing mail, but it's all pretty old and most everyone has received it, so therefore I will just show you some inspiring photographs this post.

BUT! All you old-Hollywood, vintage-y, Monroe loving blogettes like myself, will be in for a treat for my next post. A couple months back I had purchased a Norma Jeane calendar with some gorgeous old photographs inside. And those of you who are tried and true Marilyn Monroe fans know that Norma Jeane was her real name; so these photographs were pre-platinum-platinum-blonde Marilyn. Well, over the past couple days in my rare free time, I've been creating them into some - of what I think are my best, next to the Paris - envelopes! A couple are already addressed because they seemed perfect for the recipient regardless if I need to send them something or not, haha; I really cannot wait for you all to see them.

Here are some lovely images I found while tumblr-ing and flickr-ing around on the internet recently...

1. The best piece of advice I was ever given was to love like a child.

2. If I had a million dollars to give to one charity I would give it to any charity helping the children of Rwanda .

3. If I got to choose my "last meal" it would be really good eggplant parmesan and my dad's homemade cheesecake for dessert.

4. My hair is is finally getting longer.

5. If at first you don't succeed come back later and try again.

6. I have always been very opinionated, haha.

7. Oh....and by the way.... I hate warm weather. Yes, I know I live in Florida, but that wasn't all my choice. Some day I hope to move back up north, for good. Do you prefer warm or cold weather??

Hope you all have lovely weekends! Talk to you again soon!

  1. Those pictures are all so beautiful! Makes me want to fill my house with letters and make new envelopes!

  2. I did indeed send you a postcard to your current address, so be on the lookout for it - and I'll hold off a proper letter until you share your new address. Good luck with the move!

  3. OHH my goodness! That "hug mail" one is TOO cute!

    And I've been wanting a PO Box as well but I can't afford it. But also the post office closest to me hasn't had an available box in a while either. :(

  4. Having lived in the upper midwest my entire life (just about)...I gotta tell ya, an unhealthy amount of snow can get tiresome! I love snowboarding though, so I love the winter. I'm actually the happiest when it's 60 degrees and sunny outside. Not a drop warmer than that!


you're brilliant, thanks so much for commenting!
