Retro Richmond goodness
You know how this blog thing works... you check out one site, then another, and if you are lucky you find a really dreamy site. Well, that happened to me today. First, I was checking my email when my Modern June's Google Alert said that my night out picture post had been noted on the North Richmond News site. John, father to our newest craft baby, has this great news site for out local neighborhoods.
While I was there, I saw a post about the old Bellevue Theatre. WOW! I knew it had to be cool, but I had no idea how cool! Today the building houses the Samis Grotto. I took this photo on Tuesday night. Man I love these guys. It's a hoot to see how men don't really change all that much over the decades.
From NRN I found myself at Retro Richmond for more 411 on the old theatre. I am giddy about this site--it makes me wish I had time to just sit around and read it all afternoon. Oh how I miss the days when the kids were young, before I started Modern June and I used to have spare time.
But wait it gets better! At Retro Richmond I found a great post about a photo shoot that happened at Dot's Back in. OMG, what great photos. I heard that this was going on, but I didn't know just how cool it was. The photographer is an old homeschooling buddy. Ginger pinger puddin pie! WOW, she is good!
So off to 422 studios for more retro goodness! Pin up girl heaven! Let me just say when it is time to have some real PR photos done for Modern June I have my photographer. Maybe even a few awesome models too!
OK, I really have to get off this computer! NOW!!! before I find something else incredible.
BTW, could I use more !!!!! ? I don't believe so!!!!
