Friends, if you're an old movie buff like I am, you're probably a fan of Mary Astor.
Mary was best known as more of a supporting player than a lead, but if you've ever seen The Maltese Falcon, Midnight, The Great Lie (for which she won an Oscar)or The Palm Beach Story, you've seen Mary Astor at her best. What better way to celebrate Mary's hundred-and-ninth birthday than with a very special round of the Internet's favorite pattern-naming game, NAME THAT PATTERN!
The rules of the game are simple: I post photos of patterns I've found online, and you give them names. We have some fantastic prizes in store, including a false eyelash reputed to have belonged to Mary Astor herself!
With no further delay, let's play NAME THAT PATTERN!
Here's Pattern #1:
Can't be topped? Take a look at Pattern #2!
From the absurd to the ridiculous -- here's Pattern #3!
No introduction necessary: Pattern #4!
Last but not least, it's Pattern #5
But wait! As always, we have our bonus pattern for those who simply can't get enough. Behold Pattern #6!
Friends and Mary Astor fans, I've hoped you've enjoyed playing this round of NAME THAT PATTERN. As you know, you can name all the patterns above, or simply the ones that inspire you. (Naturally, if you want to win the eyelash, you'll have to name them all.) We'll all be playing here at our house -- maybe even my Mom too!
