Let's All Move To Pickfair!

Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks are considered the first celebrity couple of Hollywood. During their sixteen year marriage they resided in what we now consider the blue print of "how to have a hollywood home".

They named their property Pickfair, a splendid name for an even more splendid estate. They truly set the tone on how to live like a celebrity. Pickfair became the place where they held lavish parties with a whose who in Hollywood as well as many of their close friends such as; Charlie Chaplin. It became a sort of magical place where people felt like they were a part of something special. If you would like to see more of Pickfair, take a peak HERE.

  1. There objections whatsoever from me there!!! I can't begin to put into words how very, very much I would love to have a spacious house (and yard) like the stunning Pickford estate (or even just one a fraction of that size, so long as it finally gave us enough rooms and storage space).

    Have a beautiful weekend, dear Daffny!

  2. I'm with you! Pickfair's definitely an idyllic estate, the perfect place for a vintage commune. ;)

    Just to let you know I have nominated you for an award over at my site: http://eclecticephemera.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/one-lovely-way-to-start-year.html

  3. I'd love to move to Pickfair. I can quite imagine all those lovely parties they had all the glorious fashions and music. Gloria Swanson talked a little bit about Pickfair in her autobiography.

  4. I have always thought how marvelous it would be to visit Pickfair! What an amazing place!

  5. In an ideal world, media outlets would ignore the trivial banalities of celebrity meltdowns and focus primarily on the real world issues that concern us all. But they don’t.
