I love these glimpses into mid 20th century life. Who knews what these peoples' lives were like, or what they lay ahead of them?
For me, photobooth images are intensely romantic. They are quick, evanescent, the moment is ephemeral ... all of it caught with a coin or two, a curtain and an ordinary camera.
Memories are made of these ...
(this one is my favorite -- don't they look thick as thieves?)

These gorgeous images are from a post on the blog From Me To You.
First seen at another Paris Hotel Boutique Journal, another beauty of a blog.
These are the kind of blog Buttercup Bungalow would be if it ever grew up ...
... which is unlikely to happen, because I am much more involved in my primary blog, The Daily Corgi.
But a gal can dream!

Ziyi Zhang played the role of Nitta Sayuri in the 2005 film Memoirs of a Geisha, a movie based on Arthur Golden's 1997 book of the same name.
Zhang was absolutely exquisite in the film.
The images that came out of Memoirs were some of the loveliest I'd ever seen ... in web searching for more, I came up with some that very nearly took my breath away!

If you've been visiting the blog for a couple of months now, you've no doubt noticed that the Rooms of the Day have explored the possibilities of pink, in a primarily traditional setting.
Much as I love pink (and I do, I do!), it's time to roam ... there are so many other things I've flown right past on my search for pink rooms. A great many interesting spaces -- inside and outside -- to which I've said only the briefest of hellos.
What colors and themes come next? I don't know ...
... but that's half the fun, isn't it?
