80s

Blanche Devereaux’s Bedroom | Shopping

by Jamie Sanford on September 29, 2016

I am a huge fan of The Golden Girls. In the early days of Netflix, I rewatched the entire series on DVD with William, as he had never seen the show. We are now those people who will stop and watch any episode of The Golden Girls that appears when we are scrolling through channels on the television.

I recently caught an episode featuring the interior of the bedroom of Blanche Devereaux, and realized that I had to try and locate similar items to recreate this 1980s masterpiece. All credit to the set designers, this room is amazing. Follow along below as I try and locate items to recreate this amazing space.

The commitment to the palm leaf is REAL.

Palm leaves for the wall and that pink chair! (Unfortunately, I can’t find anything to even closely replicate the amazing vintage vanity table.)


I think Blanche has a rotary phone, but there’s a similar option here from Amazon. Her lamps are very of their time, but I found some similar options:

Blanche’s vanity changed over the seasons. The mirror obviously isn’t there because it would probably be an issue for the cameras.

Let me know in the comments if you could embrace this level of palm leaves in your own home. Also, which Golden Girl is your favorite?

Additional edit! The Golden Girls result on Etsy is a treasure trove of greatness.

His Name Was Jason (100 Films in 2011)

by Jamie Sanford on October 14, 2011

76. His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th (available to stream on Netflix and Amazon)

Jason in Times Square!

Here is the trailer (of sorts) for His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th.

[youtube rFsdpWRqdVw]

His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th is a television documentary show covering the yeas-long span of the Friday the 13th film series.  Hosted by Tom Savini, it’s an enjoyable ride through movies that were classics in the 80s horror genre.

Tom Savini walks through many of Jason’s best kills while hosting the show.

Kane Hodder, who played Jason in 4 films, was one of the many cast members interviewed for this documentary recap.

This is a really enjoyable to watch.  Some of the cast members seem to have vanished from the Earth since their appearance in these movies, so it’s fun to see how everyone looks now.  Betsy Palmer, who played Mrs. Voorhees in the first movie, looks spectacular! (Granted, this was released in 2009, but still.)

I am a little grossed out by really graphic horror movies, but these movies, especially the early ones when it was more about the buildup and just WAITING for something to happen.  Plus, Kane Hodder said that his favorite Jason kill was the one where Jason slams someone in a sleeping bag up against a tree – and that is my favorite too.

I really love October, I love Halloween, so this was a good way to gear up. I will have to watch some other horror movies before the month is out.

His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th, is available on DVD from Amazon for $11.49.

Last day of this week’s theme. What should be the theme for next week? It really helps me to write posts when I have some guidelines and can’t just pick anything available anywhere on the Internet.

These are very cute and 80s retro.

Turn the volume up on your wardrobe with sassy, funky and fun earrings made from recycled records. Whether you grew up on 45s or mix tapes, hanging out at concerts or jamming in your bedroom, music lovers everywhere will agree that these unique earrings hit all the right notes.

These are cute for a night out. I think I might need those cassette tapes.

Nostalgic Candy Collections

by Jamie Sanford on July 11, 2010

I have seen these before and absolutely love the idea.  Candy collections featuring candy from your era of choice.

Here is the one I’m most likely to buy, the 80s candy collection!


I’m especially excited about the Atomic Fireballs in there.

You can get boxes from the 1940s through the 1990s, and they are available for $32.50 on Amazon.
