hope you found something to tickle four fancy



  1. A cornucopia of loveliness! I'll get the cufflinks, if you'll get me that Lalique vase... Jx

  2. I love your choice in pictures! And Sal Mineo.

    1. I am so pleased you like my little pictorial Potpourri.
      and I must admit that I did think of you with the Sal Mineo. I love him too and think he might well have a permanent place in future posts

  3. Gasp! The boy at work looks just like Sal Mineo!! Well, he might not now - I haven't seen him since March (he rarely shows his face on Teams/Skype/whatnot because he's been giving himself terrible haircuts...)

    An intriguing set of pictures - I love Sir Robert Helpmann as Oberon.

    1. Gosh ! If I worked with any one that looked like Sal Mineo I would never get any work done.
      We adore Robert Helpmann a Queen of the highest order and she has been well and truly documented in the 'Dolores Delargo Towers - Museum of Camp.
