Organization

last night when I got home from dinner, I attempted to organize the part of my Viv/Larry (Olivier) collection that i have here at my apartment. The other part is at my parents' house, which is more like classic film things in general with a huge emphasis on GWTW. So i got this large 3 ring binder and sheet protectors and put some stuff in there. larger things like LIFE and Vogue magazines and books obviously can't fit in page protectors so I just have those in plastic sheets laying in my book case. But so now that it's mostly organized, I thought I'd take some photos and share. I still have 3 more things coming in the mail from ebay as well as hopefully getting three more on top of that if I win. We'll see. One day I'll organize everything I have together and take photos but for now I'll just list what i have here and things from memory that I have at home. I'll put the Larry/Viv stuff in bold.

So.
