The piece de resistance

January 18, 2010


An authentic Rosalind Russell autographed photo!! AND as if that wasn't spectacular enough for a $5 flea market find, the date that she signed the photo is my birthday! (No, not 1938, I mean November 12..) How amazing is that?!?! I was practically giddy when I found this today! If we had the proper kind of staircase, this was totally a slide down the banister while screaming "yayyy!!!" at the top of your lungs moment.

Needless to say, I already made a quick trip to the craft store and Roz is now properly framed, and being displayed proudly in my bedroom.

Nice work! I assume you played it cool when you spotted it, rather than let on what it was really worth... I dream of finds like this!

That's incredible. So lucky for you!

Hmm, I'll give you ten bucks for it. Covers how much you paid, the frame and postage, plus a tidy little profit for you!
No deal eh.
Aw nuts!
Good for you. But if you ever find a Cagney autograph remember your ole pal.

always cool to find a vintage auto, especially for a price like that, but to have it signed on yer own b-day, that is now in the relam of hella-cool!
