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!
