New Years Eve and A LOT of Balloons!


DSCF1844a

We had an absolute blast performing at the Palace Restaurant & Saloon for New Years Eve! We even debuted a new routine that we just adore. Our grand finale and new routine was a balloon burlesque number. Eva chose the song Singing in the Rain for this number and we were dressed as rain clouds. (Balloons = Clouds, get it?) With only a few weeks to learn and polish this number, the three of us (that were in town) worked […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.28 – 1940s Dancers


1940s dancers

1940s Dancers After a few weeks of end-of-summer hiatus we’re back to dancing this week! We can’t wait! This photo of a group of dancers from the 1940s seemed appropriate for today’s Throwback Thursday. There are some names on the back but I have to admit I can’t decipher the handwriting. We’re happy to be back and working on new routines! Wish us luck as we get back into dancer shape and work on some high kicks and fast dance […]

Vintage Photograph 2014.27 – 1945 Cowgirls


1945 cowgirls

1945 Cowgirls Six lovely ladies in their western wear sit perched on a fence in today’s Throwback Thursday photograph. Their plaid shirts, hats, and high waisted jeans make these ladies look like they mean business on the ranch. One lady is wearing saddle shoes though, which makes me wonder if this was just a weekend trip to a ranch for this group of friends or if that one lady was just out of place. Overall this photograph just makes me […]

Set in Los Alamos, NM, in 1943, the show tells the story of the people behind New Mexico’s involvement in the building of the first atomic bomb and the secrets they had to keep – from everyone. Set in Los Alamos, N.M., at the Manhattan Project during the race to build the world’s first […]

1940s picnic

1940s Picnic This has to be one of my favorite vintage photographs found thus far. The scan here does not do the print justice. The composition and the natural light are just stunning. I would guess who ever took this photo was pretty skilled with the camera. So now let’s look at the photo a little closer. The woman on the left has her hair tied up and appears to be wearing a playsuit. If you look really closely at their […]

1940s bathing palm

1940S Bathing Beauty with Palm Tree Bathing Suit This lovely palm tree lady is our Throwback Thursday snapshot of the day on this hot hot week. My mother found this vintage photograph in an antique mall and I’ve been saving it for a prime time summer appearance. We have no clues as to her location, but who cares! We’re highly distracted by her marvelous palm tree bathing suit! I mean how amazing is it?! I believe I may have found a […]

1930s girls

1930s Girls It’s Throwback Thursday! We missed a week last Thursday, sorry about that! Today we bring you a photo of two girls from the 1930s. Don’t you just love their dresses? Unfortunately, the photograph gives us no clues as to the identities of the girls. Every Throwback Thursday we share a vintage photograph of a woman (or group of women) and try to figure out her (their) back story. See you all next week! CHECK OUT PAST WEEK’S LOVELY […]

1939 couple

1939 Couple Printed on April 16, 1939, today’s throwback Thursday vintage photograph shows a woman laughing at possibly what the man next to her has just said. We won’t know for sure if they were a couple, but it seems like they were getting along well enough if even they weren’t. The photograph captures a lovely little moment between these two. The stamp on the back of the photo reads “Crystal White Print APR 16, 1939 by Nosset.” Most likely the […]
