A Sparkling Vintage Life

Pull Here In Case of Grinch-iness

Readers are calling this short story, “A lovely reminder of the true meaning of Christmas.” I hope it will be a blessing to you, too.

(For those of you who’ve read You’re the Cream in My Coffee and Ain’t Misbehavin, “The Christmas Robe”  features our beloved Marshall Field’s clerk, Marjorie Corrigan.)

Launch party day!

I was truly blessed today when intrepid readers and friends braved a spring snowstorm to make it to the launch party for Ain’t Misbehavin’. Held at a local coffee shop in Sandpoint, Idaho, the party was the bee’s knees.

The friends.

The friends.

 

The outfit. And–oh, yeah–the wares.

It’s a Bouncing Baby Book!

Ain’t Misbehavin’ launches today! To celebrate, I thought you might like to hear the song that inspired the title. While the song was first published in 1929, this clip is from a 1943 movie called Stormy Weather in which the composer, Fats Waller, sings it. It’s been covered by many artists over the years. (If you have a favorite version, please share!) I’ll keep looking for an original 1929 recording to see if it’s any different.
