Classic Elegance

That's what the world needs....

It seems I need to explain a bit about what to expect here. OK, here goes......
JUST ABOUT ANYTHING! :)

Ok, ok, seriously! LOL This will be a place to find out about the person running this blog. I post things randomly and I like what I like. :) You will find Old Hollywood, music, Latino/Native American items, things to motivate and things to remember. I'm just a girl who has all the wishes for a better world, so please, look around and I hope you find something to smile about! <3

surround yourself with people who

  • praise you because they mean it
  • don’t want anything but your company
  • do their best to understand you
  • you feel like you can confront if you need to
  • (know they can confront you lovingly in turn)
  • make you feel comfortable
  • stick with you through good and bad times
  • are positive influences on your everyday life

"Never give up on something you really want. lts difficult to wait, but worst to regret."

Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.

THIS IS TERRIFYING AND HORRIBLE

to navajos cutting your hair is losing your knowledge..this is some boarding school shit

even worse the school’s mascot and logo is a native american

When my older brother was eleven years old he had a braid down his back. He was ridiculed by classmates a lot but one day his teacher called him Pocahontas and he snapped. He cut off his hair. I remember my mothers pain. It took him 10 years to try grow his braid. It’s passed his bum now and it is beautiful.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
