Random pictures you've never seen from 1979. Apparently.

There's an auto folder in my iphoto labeled "1979". I don't know why it's labeled that way, it just appeared one day. It's full of random photos from random times, so here are some photos from ten years before I was born.
This is from my trip to California in March, at Laguna Beach.
This was a little book I was tempted to buy at The Vintage Collective
One of the many amazing houses in La Jolla. Oh, and the beach was 20 feet away. Yeah, one of my many dream houses.
A sailor outfit I don't think was ever posted. The pants are modern, one of the last items I still have from my trip to Rome. Yes, I've been to Rome, that is a post for another day, for I can go on and on about it.
The chandelier at Gustaves, we met up with friends for happy hour the other day there. Of course I wore my dirndl.
I see this guy every once in a while downtown Portland, either with this beautiful leopard like cat on his shoulder, or walking it on a leash. I call them shoulder cat and shoulder cat man.
California: Where the beaches are sprinkled in gold.

Oh my goodness, that sailor outfit is just adorable. I love anything nautical, so that one is just tops:D Especially the beret!

I really like the shot of the chandelier. And I really hope I cat a glimpse of the crazy cat dude. Frequently people walk around with rats on their shoulder (whyyyy) but I've never seen a kitty!

what a pretty pedi. your dream house is awesome. the san diego area is so nice with all of its beautiful beaches. my family lived there during a big chunk of my childhood, so your walk down memory lane brings up some nice memories for me too.

Rat on the shoulder?! I've never seen that around here in UK. Nor did I see cats walked like this, but I quite like it, and envy that man who must be very happy with his cat, I am petless (and sad about it).
You look cute as always, amazing sailor outfit, and like the last pic very much too.

Youre Very Right by the Way,
here in Cali, Beaches are Speckled in Gold!


That sailor outfit is the best. I've never seen you in slacks before. Love it!

Love that crazy cat man!

That is really weird, in Allentown, PA there is a dude like that. He is a really old guy and walks all hunched over - the cat sort of sits on his back and shifts its weight when the old guy gets too rowdy when he's talking to someone.

I thought it was the greatest thing I've ever seen! The pair we have aren't as attractive as yours!

Maybe its one of those weird "every city has one" phenomena?

Love the red toenails!
