All I want for Christmas is Cary Grant

You didn't know that Jenn and Jacqui over at the Bower Birds Nest ( were miracle workers, did you? Well I've heard that if you wanted a mountain moved to get an Aussie. But wow. I stated somewhere that all I wanted for Christmas was Cary Grant....was he not the perfect man? Yes, I believe he was. I first saw him in Arsenic and Old Lace and when I wasn't laughing my behind off I was drooling over the beauty of a man...I was 12. I haven't matured much since then, sorry to say. So, my sweet Nestlings apparently contacted heaven (for where else could he be?) and I've been sent a gift...Girls, you are simply the best, hands down! Merry Christmas, and thank you for this...I'll treasure it.

Loved Carey Grant movies! He was so dashing & debonair.

Thanks for stopping by to see more of my Christmas, Sandi! Those big leaves on my mailbox swag are sprays of magnolia leaves. They are not the usual large magnolias, but must be another variety. I love them too..had to sneak & cut them from an office parking lot, LOL.

Very nice! Your friends were really paying attention now weren't they?

BTW, I just learned what a bowerbird is and just how fancy schmancy a nest they make.

Cary Grant...oh my, what a looker! Loved his voice too. I loved ALL his movies.


Susie Q said...

This is the cutest thing I have ever seen...can they make a Brian Dennehy one?? *grin*

Cary was inimitable. There was no one lie him before nor will there ever be another like him.

I loved him, still do. My favorites are Mr. Blanding's Dream House,
My Favorite Wife and Charade. He made it all look easy and that is NOT easy to do.

The man oozed class.

Oozed it....

Love and hugs,
