Christmas in July Day 9: The Rosemary Clooney House

I stumbled on a fabulous find today: The Rosemary Clooney House.

Why does The Rosemary Clooney House in KY, make my cut for Christmas in July you ask? Because it not only houses memorabilia from her entire career, but most importantly has the largest collection of White Christmas memorabilia in the world.

My daughter and I are total museum junkies. In fact, we need a bumper sticker that reads "Will stop for Roadside Museums".  In all seriousness, I would be delighted to visit her home and see the dresses up close. I read that the Blue "Sister" dress was recently restored and rededicated at the museum. And if Rosemary doesn't do it for you, how about George her nephew? They also recently added his Monuments Men military uniform and his iconic overalls from Oh Brother, to the George Clooney area of the house. 

As of today, I've added the Clooney house to my list of places to visit, when I make it to Kentucky someday. 

Here are some additional photos and sketches of Rosemary and her dresses that I happen to love. 

And a little music to share...
