Are You a Poodle?

Definition: poodle (noun) - A gal who loves vintage style. This includes fashion, hair, and makeup. She is retro through and through, adoring vintage home decor and entertaining. Her movie selections includes musical greats like Judy Garland and Fred Astaire; and dramatic actors such as Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Her music collection includes Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. She may be a bit kitsch. She must always strive to be classy, and a little sassy.

So, are you a poodle? Answer the following questions to find out:

*Do you regularly bake/cook while wearing an apron?

*Do you refer to your bedroom/closet as a "boudoir"?

Welcome to my boudoir poodles!

*Can you be found at least one night a week with your hair in curlers/pin curls?

Curlers~ They're a hot bedroom look!

*Do you wear "stockings"?

*Does the word leopard conjure up fashion and home accessories and not an animal in Africa?

*Do you offer your guests cocktails with a matching cocktail napkin, and a toothpick loaded with cherries?

*Can you quote from most of Meg Ryan's classic romantic comedies?

*Do you know all the words to "The Way You Look Tonight"? 

*Is Masterpiece programmed into your DVR?

*Are you persistently late for reasons of procrastination?

I LOVE this! It is soooo me!
Someone sent it to me, andI have no idea of it's
source- if you do, please let me know.

*Does your shoe collection number in the double, or even triple digits?

*Do you wear red lipstick?

*Is pink a lifestyle, not just a color?

*Do you get giddy when someone says any of the following words?: "kindred spirits", "Paris", "hello kitty", "Cary Grant", "Audrey Hepburn", "champagne", or "Sleepless in Seattle"?

*Do you prefer Bette Davis to Joan Crawford? 

Take the quiz to find out who you are!

*Do you like this blog? ;-)

Shameless Plug!!

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you are indeed a Poodle! And we are definitely "M.F.E.O."!!!!! (Name that quote in the comments section, and impress me with your Poodle movie knowledge!)

You are FABULOUS!!!


  1. I am the opposite of a poodle. What would that be? I do enjoy reading your blog though :)

  2. A kitten! A seductive minx! ;-) But I know you love to read, and you are definitely a "kindred spirit"! Remember Ryan's Hand? So you do have some poodle in you! ;-)

  3. Apron? Check.
    Boudoir? Occasionally. Check.
    Curlers? Um, no. But if I wasn't so lazy I might.
    Stockings? Do Control Top Panty Hose count?
    Leopard? Love it! Check.
    Cocktails with matching napkins? Check.
    Cherries? Gross.
    Meg Ryan? Sure, because I too could never be with someone who has a boat.
    "The Way You Look Tonight"? Check.
    Masterpiece DVRed? Check...and rechecked every week...just in case.
    Procrastination? It's an art, and I've cultivated it.
    Shoes? Check.
    Red Lipstick? Well, no. I fail.
    Pink? Kay Thompson got it right when she said, "Red is dead, blue is through, green's obscene, brown's taboo. THINK PINK!"
    Cary Grant? *swoon*
    Betty Davis? Check.
    Poodles and Pin curls? I must...because I keep coming back!
    We must be made for each other...

  4. If you could see me, you'd see clapping and cheering! ;-) Yay! You are a poodle through and through!

  5. Yes, definitely love to read and "kindred spirit" so maybe I'm some sort of poodle/minx/kitten mix ;) I haven't read Ryan's Hand is a million years. I've got to again soon!

  6. I like this blog! I like poodles (dogs) and anything with poodles on it. I have socks, pj's, jewelry, ornaments, stationary, etc. I wear red lipstick, have tights in different colors (if they count as stockings), make pretty aprons, like "Fly Me To The Moon", & "Breakfast At Tiffany's". I'm following.

    1. Yay! You are a Poodle!!! I wish I could sew and make pretty aprons! That's awesome! I'm hopeless at things like that. Thanks for following!!!

  7. Does having a large collection of handmade aprons (from vintage patterns) hanging next to my oven count? I always forget to put one on until that first spill or spatter. I must admit that I tend to avoid movies made after WWII but I have every single Busby Berkeley movie on DVD, as well as a growing collection of pre-Code and silent movies. Sorry about this one, but I can't stand Meg Ryan rom-coms. If I want a rom-com, I'll watch anything with Joan Blondell and James Cagney. Red lippy, oh yes! I sometimes switch to hot pink, like Cherries in Snow or MAC Rebel in the summer, though. A cocktail with cherries? No, but you may have as many olives as you would like. Here's another secret: I've had to start wearing wigs every day so no more curlers, but I do shop the ethnic stores for the most vintage-looking wigs. I guess I'm only half a poodle.

  8. It sounds like you are one amazing vintage gal! I love James Cagney, and a dirty martini with triple olives is one of my favorite cocktails. Cherries in the Snow is gorgeous! My dear friend wears only wigs and she is one hot mama! And after Meg Ryan cut her hair and did weird things to her lips, I stopped watching! So I'm going to have to disagree, because I think you are FULLY a poodle!! ;) Thanks for your awesome comment!!!

  9. Hey I was wondering if there is a copyright on the image of the woman holding a pot, in black and white (the second image)? I only ask because I wanted to use the image, but cannot if there is a copyright on it.
