"I didn't know they made champagne in Idaho."

"Let's have some of that crazy Idaho champagne."- Cactus Flower

Hope you've had, are having or about to have a wonderful new year's eve. I'm not a big fan of this holiday because I think every day is one you can't repeat... but maybe I'll have a glass of champagne (Ingrid style = CLASSY ...think Notorious, Anastasia and Cactus Flower.

PS I've successfully made it to L.A., moved some of my stuff into my new house and I'm currently staying downtown... it's GORGEOUS!! I'm going to post pics of my new place and write about my cross country trip on my other blog soon-- I'll be sure to post a link if anyone is interested!

As soon as I'm moved in, I'll try and get that Casablanca post done NEXT WEEK!! (or maybe this weekend...)

Merry Christmas!

God Jul! Which is hopefully Swedish for Good Yule! haha. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season. I move to California on Sunday, I will hopefully watch the rest of Casablanca soon and post the play-by-play. I'll have internet asap, but who knows when...

Anyway, have an ingridly wonderful day! :)


Watch The Bells of Saint Mary's if you're looking for a feel-good Ingrid Bergman Christmas movie. :)

And The Winner Is...

Tom created the "Broachin' On Ingrid" logo and with 50% of the votes, he wins Taschen's photo book of Ingrid!

Here is Tom's acceptance speech. Congrats again!

"Thanks Alexis! I had fun working on your banner. I don't know if I have a speech, but I could share some Ingrid love! She's one of my favorite actresses. Though I haven't seen any of her Swedish films yet, I have two favorite English-language performances of hers. The first is Casablanca, and the other is A Woman Called Golda, her final filmed performance. Also, I just watched For Whom the Bell Tolls last weekend and loved her in it.

Can't wait to read the biography, it sounds like a good one. I want to learn more about her early career and life. And am following your blog! Love it!!"

On a different note, I will be moving right after Christmas, from Maryland to California...because of this, my post about Casablanca may be REALLY delayed. I will hopefully do it sometime this week... but I apologize for this extreme delay. I have the first part written, and if you'd like the play by play in sections, let me know and I'll post it as such.
Thanks for your support and submissions- they're all fantastic logos and will be used!
