Harv and I went to the movies today to see The King's Speech. Absolutely brilliant. The acting of Colin Firth and the Aussie Speech Teacher were brilliant. After seeing it I could not imagine anyone else in the role but Colin Firth and equal for his teacher. If you can get to see it don't miss it. We had stopped going to the theatre when Harv went into the chair due to the handicapped situation where they put you down front in the first row area. By the time you came out you had vertigo, ringing in the ears from the noise and a stiff neck. We gave up going. Well with the new theatres now they have moved you up about a dozen rows and is much better. I would also like to see The Rabbit Hole and the other Aussie picture about a gangster family and it is based in Melbourne. Can't think of the name. Melbourne is my favorite Aussie city and would be fun to look back and see what we might remember.

I have a few more things from the flea market to show you tonight. Nothing as exciting as the fan to me.

I picked up 5 pieces of lace for $1.00 each. The first round one has a beautiful lace edging that I can remove and use. The next was a pile of hankies and I paid 3/1.00 from a jumble box. Including the Belgian lace one still in the packet. A Valentine hankie was really cute and it was 2.00. I need to buy some biz and soak a couple of them.

The next one was the other 4 pieces of lace. 2 round ecru ones and then 2 white crocheted ones that are longer then the picture shows. The little doll head was made into a hanging piece with a hook at the back in her hair. I paid 3.50 for her but she was different. You usually see a whole head. Whether she was made this way or cut in half I have no idea. She just tickled my fancy. Probably would not wear her but great for a collage which I want to start playing around with once this quilt is done.

That lace is so gorgeous. Glad you enjoyed the King's Speech. Colin Firth is just so good in everything he does, and it is all different too.

This is a movie I'd like to see but I stopped going to movies because people are so rude...lots of talking, crying kids etc. it stopped being enjoyable.
You got lots of goodies ! I don't live close to anything, sigh.

More great finds! I doubt that movie will come to our little theatre here, so I'll have to wait for it to come out in the stores.

Love your collections. That red valentine one can give some fun ideas for sure.

Great finds! I want to see that movie too...I love Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth too. I read an article about the new king's relationship to his brother who abdicated. The older one was totally abusive to his brother...he got his in the end!
