>The Academy Awards

> Hey Everyone!

     Actually, this is not about last night’s awards show. I didn’t even watch. I only looked at a couple of the fashion pages this morning…..
     This is about an incredible score, obtained while shopping my boyfriend’s house. I had actually seen this a while ago and then it disappeared. I was a little beside myself, I wanted it back so badly!!! Chris (you’re my hero, babe) found it with his packed books yesterday. The item?

A collection of drawings featuring ” for the first time…A COMPLETE PORTRAIT COLLECTION OF ACADEMY AWARD WINNERS: BEST ACTOR AWARD and BEST ACTRESS AWARD. SUITABLE FOR FRAMING” by artist Nicholas Volpe.
Oh, be still my heart! Sixty-six beautiful portraits of old Hollywood players, all award winners from 1928 through 1961. This collection was published in 1962 and cost $3.00 for the entire set. Below is a small sampling of what is inside.

  1. >That is an awesome score. Imagine framing all of them and doing a whole wall, it would look incredible. Although you'd need a big room!
