Great favorites. I remember (well...don't remember) the line Julia says in Something To Talk About...loved it. If that is true about anyone, hopefully it caused them to reach higher.

I'd like to try false eyelashes, too! But doesn't it irritate you when you see an ad for mascara and the model is wearing false eyelashes? Talk about false advertising...

Jane beat me to it... I started wearing false eyelashes for special ocasions last year...hard to apply. The singles are more realistic looking if you apply three to each eye to add length.

favorite corrective saying... buck up buckaroo...

Perfume...Shalimar, but couldn't afford it
I love red leather too.

I love this post. It was fun.

Deb said...

I would like to try false eyelashes...never tried daughter wears them when she performs and they look so pretty...

Morning Laura, Sorry I have been here more often lately, I always enjoy your blog and today is no exception, love the favorites you listed.
I am spending a lot of time with my friend Sharon, who was recently diagnosed with throat cancer and her husband passed away in Oct. Times have been hard for her.

Tracey said...

What a fun list.. and yes..the dance scene in Hope Floats..great. Although anything with Harry Conick, Jr would be good.. I can think of plenty!:)

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

I remember nothing from high school. :) I agree with Tracey, love Harry Connick Jr. Thanks for visiting my little corner of the world. Wishing you a glorious day! Blessings, Tammy

trash talk said...

You know I can't let a post with Harry's name in it pass and not say anything! Quick question...the fast dance or the slow? Both Killer! Speaking of about her and Dennis's dance in one? Love it too!
Wind Song, cake liner with white under the black, Collins of Texas bags, is there any other kind of paper and mully grubbing when junking!
BTW, tell Debra two words...Turtle Necks!
Loved this post!
