Happy Thanksgiving, Big-Shouldered Gals (and Guys)!

Friends, this morning we're busy peroxiding Cathy's hair, rouging her cheeks, and adjusting her attitude.  On photo shoot day, everything must be perfection!

To get into the right mood, last night I watched 1944's Cover Girl, starring Rita Hayworth.  Along with lavish technicolor musical numbers, the film boasts some gorgeous mid-Forties street clothes.  Have you seen it?

Second banana Eve Arden is particularly well-accessorized, with marvelous hats.

We celebrate Thanksgiving in the late afternoon in my family, so I have most of the day free to spend with my cousin, who never gets invited to Thanksgiving anymore, since that unfortunate incident with the turkey stuffing.

Oh dear, friends, I must sign off: it's time to hoist Cathy's shoulders into place -- a two-person job.

Cathy or Joan: you decide!

I hope those of you who are celebrating Thanksgiving have a very happy holiday, and those who aren't enjoy the day doing whatever brings you joy.

Gobble, Gobble!


  1. Cover girl is one of my favorites...just love that movie. Happy thanks for all of the smiles and laughs you have given to me this year.

  2. I am looking forward to seeing the wonderful pics of Cathy's photo shoot - always so exciting!

    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, Peter, Michael, Cathy and all of the MPB readers!


  3. Totally fabulous!!! In that dance number she showed you how to work a bias cut gown!! WORK RITA!!!!

  4. Thanks for every little bit of Eve Arden.

    Best to Cathy and the others.

  5. Fantastic sequence of the cover girls - I saw at least five looks I'd like to recreate. The hats and hair are TDF.
    We send our happy holiday wishes to you as well, and can hardly wait to see the result of the photo shoot!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving Peter, you are an inspiration.


    The suspense is killing me!

    Awaiting the reveal -

  8. Dear Cathy (& Peter),

    i'm really looking forward to seeing you rock the 1940s look that Peter has created for you.

    Even though Thanksgiving isn't celebrated in Australia, I hope that your day is full of great food & company....and now i'm dying to hear more about the unfortunate turkey stuffing incident & Cathy's harsh disgrace!
