Loretta Young

Hello dear ones, 

I took a walk today and visited an antique shop. I found an old metal frame with a picture of a beautiful young lady on a yellowing, old, paper. It was signed Loretta Young. At home of course, I looked her up right away. I wanted to know who the happy girl in the picture was. Turned out to be an actress of Hollywood in the years 1916-1960. 
Honestly, I have never heard of her before, but lookig through her photos I admit I have seen the face, it was familiar. In 1949 she received an Ocsar for her role in the movie "Come to the Stable." 
I borrowed a couple of pictures off the internet to show you guys.

I will of course renew the frame, since the material is faded after the all these years. When I took the paper out of he back I found some snippets of lovely blue velvet. 

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!


Witajcie moi mili,

Na dzisiejszym spacerku odwiedzilam antyczny sklepik i znalazlam stara metalowa ramke  ze zdjeciem pozolklym i podpisanym Loretta Young. Kupilam .W domciu oczywiscie zaraz sprawdzilam kim jest ta wesola dziewczyna na fotografi. Okazala sie nia amerykanska aktorka Holywood z lat 1916-1960, Loretta Young.Szczerze powiem nigdy wczesniej nie spotkalam sie z tym nazwiskiem,chodz ogladajac jej fotografie twarz wydala mi sie znajoma.W roku 1949 otrzymala Oskara za role w filmie ,,Come to the stable,,.
Zapozyczylam kilka zdjec z netu tej pieknej aktorki.
Ramke oczywiscie odnowie bo material po latach stracil kolor .Kiedy wyciagnelam zdjecie w srodku byly kawaleczki pieknego niebieskiego aksamitu.

Zycze Wam najpiekniejszego weekendu!

Hello Katherine:
What a very splendid find and how intriguing to have included the video clip of Loretta Young in 'Come to the Stable'. A somewhat improbable situation for two nuns, a jeep, and a very snowy landscape!! But she was certainly a very beautiful woman in her day.
