I got no strings to hold me down.

I was cleaning up the other day and found this vintage French magazine from 1967 in a pile of stuff. That's how it is over at the ol' lemonade stand. It may often look like a thrift store exploded over here, but I guarantee you will always find something fun and interesting to look at!! OK, back to this amazingly cute magazine, that I can't read a word of. Loads of amazing stuff, but this one is my favorite by far. How cute are these models?? I love the dresses and mod flats. It has me wanting to paint on rosey cheeks do a little marionette photo shoot!

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. What a totally unique photo shoot of those models!
    So 60's!
    I know you adored finding that magazine.
    Oh I love old magazine!

  2. That's such a beautiful photo shoot.

    And Alex...

    I'll have to pop over there sometime when I have an hour or so...Ha!...and check out her writing! I know she must have something WOW going on to have this many readers!
    Good for her!
    Yes...The Pioneer Woman...have popped over to her blog a time or two and was quite simply amazed! I bet her cookbook is just fabulous!
    Blogging certainly does open up a whole world of ideas and realtionships...I actually created my blog for friends and family back Alabama...and now I am chatting with gals from England (oh I do love England!) and charming, unique lovelies like yourself!

  4. Thank you so much...Chantelle, that is the best compliment ever!

    And Teresa I'm so glad you like the name!! Thank you!
    It's a silly play on "When Life Hands You Lemons", because I try to be positive in my everyday life (doesn't ALWAYS work, haha). The one downside with the blog name is that if anyone tries to search for it, they get recipes for strawberry lemonade first!! haha (i guess that's not such a bad thing though, eh?)


  5. OK, I can't believe I'm admitting that I know this, but didn't they rip off this idea on America's Next Top Model?
