Happy Birthday Martha Stewart!

By alison August 3, 2010 8 Comments 0 Min Read

This little darling is one Martha Kostyra. Look closely and you will see that in the 59 years since this photograph was taken, Martha hasn’t changed a jot.
Because yes indeed Housekeepers today is Martha Stewart’s sixty ninth birthday and though I’m sure she won’t thank any of us for shouting her age from the virtual rooftops, I couldn’t let this day pass without noting that hard work, passion and determination are clearly the key ingredients for going to battle with the onset of the years: Martha looks amazing doesn’t she?
Happy Birthday to my very favourite Housekeeper!

    What a lovely cowboy (or cowgirl) patterned shirt she is wearing (early 1950's wonderfulness?). I am surprised to see the photo in color for that time period.

    I agree, what a fabulous blouse… I wonder if the photo was taken by a professional? The colours are so natural.

    Happy Birthday Martha!!
    I was thinking about you earlier Alison, whilst flicking through my puttery treats, i have pretty much been through all of your blog/site over the last couple of years and do not recall seeing any of your home and ideas…..will we ever? i am intrigued and ever such a little nosey 🙂 xxxx

  6. Oh I love Martha. In fact I recently blogged about my love of Martha (and probably will again). She's an inspiration, I think – and I love her, flaws and all.
    I recently discovered your blog whilst trundling around the internet with a pot of tea – it's beautiful.

    You Rock Ms Martha Stewart!!
