Jul 59

Young Esther and her first four babies.  

Nancy, Donna, Jim, Sue and Mom.

Esther and Jim were visiting grandma and grandpa Hansen in Oshkosh.

I had never seen this picture until my cousins posted it on Facebook.
I need to remember how to repair this image and blow it up.

I just adore this close up of Suzy and Mom.
Sue's grand-daughter looks very much like Sue. 
It is the most precious thing in the world...

We all have invisible wheelchairs...Katherine Wolf

I stumbled upon Katherine Wolf's Instagram this week and I read and watched all I could find....
She is an incredibly inspiring woman...and her husband is wonderful too.
I have not read much about suffering since my many years listening to Elisabeth Elliot in the 90's.

This short movie tells Katherine and Jay's story.

"we all have invisible wheelchairs inside us"

God bless this amazing faith-filled family

Oscars 2020 Red Carpet

They all wore their best dresses already, I guess.

Most of the dresses I loved were worn by guests of the stars...their partners. :o)

If you saw James and his wife Julia Carey on the red carpet I am positive you knew I would pick this dress.  Every time.  I will pick a pretty dress like this!!!  The designer is J. Mendel.   I love this so much.

It's a little hard to see but Kate Fahy looks so lovely and calm in her deep green dress.
This really is a favorite of mine this year.

Here is Outlanders' Caitriona Balfe.

She chose something unique and pretty but not weird.
So many ugly weird dresses this year.  

This was definitely the prettiest unusual dress of the night.
That pink color is just right and I love the fabric and perfect bow.

Not too big.
Not too little.
Just right.

Julie Louis Dreyfus always looks stunning.  This is on the verge of ho hum, if you can image that, but I decided to choose it because there was so little else that I wanted to share.  
The fit, the color, the neckline, the jewels.  
Her figure.
She is amazing.

I honestly could do a whole post of the flops.
But I don't do that.

Be the light.
Be the light.


My friend Crissy, just loved this and hoped I would post it today!  
Regina King looks absolutely stunning.
The color and fit of this dress are beautiful.

Another stunning couple.  This is Mark Ruffolo and his wife Sunrise Coigney.  Sunrise is wearing Valentino and I love her bright pink, layered dress!!  Beautiful!

Lucy Boynton is an American-English actress...and I love her style.  I will be watching her because when I was looking for her name I spotted what she wore to the Critics Choice awards a month ago and I loved it too!

Lucy played Beatrix Potter as a little girl in Miss Potter and is currently in The Politician on Netflix.
(Which I also just found out)

She should have played AMY in Little Women.
I'm like a dog with a bone.

This is Joanne Tucker (partner of the amazing actor Adam Driver) She is just perfect in this pretty dress!  The flowers are divine. 
After searching I found that Joanne is wearing Oscar de la Renta!!  It's vintage too!!!
My favorite!
She looks beautiful and totally at ease.

Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner.


After the Oscars there are lots of big parties.
I saw a few outfits that were kinda cool....

These two make a perfect pair, don't they.  Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union. 
Her dress is different and feminine and pretty.  His lace coat is so odd but works here.  
I really like this!!

Katie Couric out at the party....

Tra La.

The show was host-less again last night and it suffered for it.
The acceptance speeches were long and strange.
There were two funny bits and Elton John sang an average song....and won...which I was happy about...You know Rocketman was my favorite movie of the year....

But as usual the Brits brought the funny bits.
James Corden and Rebel Wilson came out in CATS outfits and made fun of their terrible movie and Olivia Coleman just came out and was funny.

that's what I've got for you this morning!

“Ford v Ferrari”
“The Irishman”
“Jojo Rabbit”
“Little Women”
“Marriage Story”
“Once Upon a Time in . . . Hollywood”

The only movie I would recommend for this list is Ford v Ferrari.
 As for The Irishman, Little Women, Marriage Story and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, I was not a fan of any of them.   I do look forward to seeing Jojo Rabbit.
What did I enjoy this year?
Downton Abbey
Last Christmas

Do you like any of the dresses I chose this time?
Are there any movies on the list that you LOVED?

Thanks for visiting!

Your red carpet hostess,
