Pretty Pretty

After watching copious amounts of  'Mad Men' for the past few weeks (three seasons in as many weeks!) its safe to say I am getting pretty obsessed with everything sixties..


My mama sent me these images of my granny and grandad today and I thought I would share as I think they are truly beautiful. I'm not sure exactly what it is about that era I am so addicted too..I know I wouldn't really want to live at that time...the sexism and inequality for women would have been unbearable but its nice to dip into a show like mad men for a minute (take a shot or two of whisky and a cigarette while i'm at it) and use it as pure escapism...those dresses *sigh*.

Anyways these are my pretty pretty grandparents (the Stricklands)

 and these from their wedding day..uh-mazing dress..
I'm sure life back then was just as hectic and chaotic and mundane..but pictures can make things look so beautifull and simple cant they? xo
