Sometimes The Best Stuff Is Right At Home



.
My sister left this in my bedroom when I was home last weekend. Think she knows me much?
The Mt. Pleasant house, over 150 years old and lived in by my grandparents for almost sixty years and currently owned by my dad and stepmom, has been updated and cleaned out over the years, and yet, there are always treasures to be found. I've found stuff in the barn from the original owners, and I've laid claim to my grandmother's sewing drawer, where there is always one more good button to bring home, or a fine package of bias tape or some such.

I was going to say that she looks familiar, but I can't place her. Not that I'm a bigtime pop culture geek.

Patti Duke?

Looks like Cybil Shepherd to me. But if that Glamour Guide for Teens is from the 50s then the age probably doesn't work by 10 years or so.

When are you going to tell us?

It probably says something bad about me that this is bothering me.

Clearly it's time for a hint. Sadly the best one I have is the most obvious, but what the hell. Here it is:
The Poseidon Adventure.
