Hi Kathleen, and Martha,
In the summer, I take a movie projector outside and watch movies as it is so nice in the evenings. I use a white satin sheet for the screen. A couple years ago I put in an old Fred and Ginger movie and was amazed at what I had been missing on the TV versions. The satins, bead-work, and jeweled accents really popped on the satin screen. Coupled with the elegance of Art Deco, flowing garments, and dancing in some cases, it is a treat to go back and see these old films this way. The absence of color was actually an artistic gold mine for designers.
I am working on a gray necklace, which is not my typical color of choice but fun to weave in vintage Art Deco earrings, and other bits.
I do love the work of Edith Head, but what a fabulous era we have to look back on!
