Shirley Temple's Special Day

Happy Birthday, Shirley!!
If I didn't know better, I would think she was photographing her doll in this pose for a blog post!
Looks like something I would do.
The illustration above is from this fabulous book, published in 1935 by Saalfield Publishing Company:

Here's hoping that our beloved Shirley Temple Black will have a wonderful birthday today!

We can celebrate, too - by watching one of her many delightful and entertaining, endearing and enduring films.
Thank you for being YOU, Shirley!

Happy birthday Shirley! Good idea to watch one of her movies! I think I am going to watch Castaway, because I haven't seen that for a long time. Cute pictures, and she grew up so lovely. Love T

That last picture of her resembles my youngest sister (who looks nothing like me btw) SO MUCH. It is really trippin' me out, I'm gonna have to show it to her!
