Shirley Temple Curls


Noli asked, "who do I look like?"

"Shirley Temple,"  mom says

"Who's that?  Everyone says that."

So mom pulls up Wikipedia and Noli wanted to read it. 

According to mom, "She read the first paragraph in twenty minutes like an explorer hacking through the jungle with fierce determination. A lot of the words I helped her with, like "autobiographer" and "retire" -- they brought an adamant "I KNOW" when I tried to define them."

Do you remember Shirley Temple?

photo, business, show

and her curls?

We were in an antique store the other day and I saw a Shirley Temple doll -- dress in her red polka dot dress from "Stand Up and Cheer." I showed Noli and she said -- "I KNOW. I see her ALL THE TIME!"
Little smarty pants.....

I didn't have a Shirley Temple doll, but I had Shirley Temple paper dolls! I can remember carefully cutting out her frilly dresses. And I watched all her movies on TV after I was grown up -- and thoroughly enjoyed them!

I just might have to check out NetFlix and see if I can find her movies and watch them again.....

♥♥♥  Linking Shirley Temple and her curls over at Miss Jenny's for Alphabe-Thursday where we are studying the letter S.  Take a trip over and check out some more fun S stories!!

At university, I had a couple of postcards showing Shirley Temple in my folder. Quite a few people asked me if those photos show me as a child. I couldn't believe that nearly no one knew Shirley Temple...

Anyway, thanks for that lovely post!

I think I may have seen a Shirley Temple movie or 2, or at least parts of some. They might just be fun to watch now!

I had a crush on Shirley Temple, she was my idol, when I was young. I still have my old Shirley Temple scrap book. I DID NOT have a Shirley Temple doll.

It seems that now you have a 'Shirley Temple doll,' a little live one there. She's cute. And she does resemble S.T. very much.

Oh yes, I do remember Shirley Temple! I used to watch her films as a kid and loved them. Maybe I'll check out Netflix, too :)

She is splendid.

What an adorable little girl.

And, of course, I remember Shirley Temple.

I'm old.

And I am still traumatized by my mom breaking my Shirley Temple "On the Good Ship Lollipop" record.


Thanks for superbly cute link this week.
