Sixty-six years ago today Jackie Robinson debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers as the first black player in the major leagues. I'm proud of the MLB for honoring him and retiring his #42 league-wide. He played his last game in 1956, but not before playing in six World Series and six All-Star games, winning Rookie of the Year and and an MVP award. AND these accolades were nothing compared to what he did off the field. You can read more here. I'm looking forward to seeing the new Hollywood movie, heard it's good.
We have a wonderful new store in the neighborhood....Vintage Home and Garden. Morgan has exquisite taste and her shop is so welcoming. She's also a photographer and posts amazing photos from her shop here, on her FB page. I bought a fun letter J for my studio and stationery made from vintage wallpaper!

The water's delicious The air is so clear On top of a mountain You see to next year. Couples stay married Children are jewels Sure got you going! APRIL FOOLS!
