Saturday Happenings

Last Saturday was a leisure day at our house with nothing specific on the agenda, so Jerry and I went out to breakfast and afterwards went to two antique shops in Mt. Clemens, MI.  I didn't see anything I couldn't live without, but on the way home we decided to stop at an estate sale.  

The deceased lady had a collection of trios, and when I showed interest in one, my hubby bought it for me.

It's made in Germany rather than England.

A friend recommended the movie, Hidden Figures, to Jerry, so we went to the matinee showing of it.  It was released on December 25, 2016.

It's the true story of Katherine Johnson [played by Taraji P. Henson], Dorothy Vaughan  [Octavia Spencer], and Mary Jackson [Janelle Monae] - brilliant African-American women who worked at NASA, and served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.  The trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

It's a 'must see' even if there aren't any tea scenes in it.  There was enough tea in the final episode of Queen Victoria on Sunday night to make up for it!  ;-)


  1. Your new trio is lovely - what a nice find! I haven't seen this movie yet but everything I've heard about it has been positive. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  2. What a beautiful trio and how thoughtful of your hubby, Phyllis. I did see Hidden Figures and loved the movie, too.

  3. Very beautiful trio!Thanks for sharing.Hugs,Maristella.

  4. Pretty trio and what a lovely time with hubby!

  5. The purchase of the trio is gorgeous.

  6. Your new trio is gorgeous (the scalloped shape is quite lovely), and I appreciate the movie review, as that's one I've been thinking about going to see.
