My new favorite find happens to come from a wonderful jewelery designer named Susan Cesa , of Backstreet Creations. Find her amazing vintage inspired lockets made with a modern twist HERE , on Etsy. Reasonably priced, each locket comes nicely wrapped in a little gift box with lovely pink organza ribbon. These make a perfect gift (especially with Valentine's Day just around the corner). I promise, you will not be disappointed ! ~ Nadia

Sometimes you just find the perfect old home…. the one that makes your heart sing and feel warm inside. This lovely Queen Anne Victorian home in Wyncote, Pennsylvania has inspired me since the first time I ever layed my eyes upon it. From the warm, perfectly painted clapboard exterior, to the woodwork and layout with all of it's little nooks and crannies…. This home has soul. The soul of those who lived in it over the years and gave it the love and history, and the soul of the current owners whose evidence of great care has allowed it to be so beatifully mainted still today. For more details on this lovely warm soul of a home and listing information, click HERE . ~ Nadia

Safe to say, I enjoy my daily troll on Ebay looking for interesting old house stuff. Today, I happened to run across an entire solid Mahagony room complete with fireplace, coffered beams and wains cotting. For $18, 000 this room could be part of a great New (Old house). You can even have your new /old room delivered ! To find out more about this great potential project, click HERE. ~ Nadia

|ABC's Pan Am|
Looking forward to my favorite new show returning tonight ! Pan Am… Sunday's on ABC , at 10:00PM Eastern.
|Off to somewhere amazing|
Luckily, I have my very own real life Pan Am Stewardess as my most lovely and wonderful Mother- in- Law. Travelling the world entire, and meeting her future husband, my Father- In- Law( who also happened to be a Pan Am Pilot) were just a few of the many adventures she encountered.
Back in the day (the 1950's to be exact), Pan Am Stewardesses had to be skilled and formally educated as a nurse. In addition to airline safety procedures, Pan Am Stewardess's were formally trained in etiquette and all social graces. Weight restrictions were strictly enforced… (I think that may be still a good idea today !) .The wearing of a girdle was required, as well as the lovely white gloves and pill box hat. The uniforms were flawless in there tailoring and style. The epitome of elegance, glamour, fashion and dreams come true; The idea and memory of the Pan Am Stewardess' glory days of flying was, and in many ways still is, an iconic vision of what little girls often dream of .
Now, you know to see the world( and get paid for doing it) is not a bad dream to believe in. I do really know….. my dream to one day fly the skies when I grew up, came true. Although the glory days of flying are somewhat changed today, the mystique and draw for the job is still firmly in place. I do miss flying the world like the girls from Pan Am sometimes. But like life… all good things must come to an end as we evolve into new chapters ahead. Watching this great series I too reflect, like my dear Mother- In- Law, fondly looking back on those days as some of my most, ( our most) cherished memories. ~ Nadia
