My mother, Pauline was pregnant that Christmas and after three girls we were thrilled to have Baby Preston join our family the next Christmas in 1960.
William Preston Williams lll made our family complete and was the best gift of all on Christmas 1960.

Sharrie, Donna, Billee and Baby Preston 


We moved into our home on Lenawee in Culver City in 1956, the year it was built and uncle Lyle spent every Christmas with us here, through 1967, the year he sold the Maybelline Company.

We moved to Newport Beach in 1969 and sold the house on Lenawee in 1971.  Today, 56 years later it's still the cutest house on the block and carries all the special memories of Christmas our childhood and the happiest years of our lives. 

left to right, Sharrie, Bill, Tom Lyle, Billee, Pauline, Donna and Nana, Evelyn Williams and our little poodle, Pepsi. 
Unk Ile's last Christmas with us in 1967.  He had just sold the Maybelline Company to Plough Inc. and our lives were about to change forever. 

Merry Christmas everyone and thank you for following the Maybelline Book Blog all year...

I will never forget those wonderful days when we were young and Innocent and the wonder of Christmas was still so alive in our hearts.


Maybelline's Founder, Tom Lyle Williams - Christmas 1959.

My father Bill Williams with his uncle Tom Lyle Williams Christmas 1959
I remember soaking up the aroma of those red leather upholstered seats, as uncle Lyle stepped out of his brand new white convertible Cadillac that Christmas.
 My dad remarked that the deep red was symbolic of Maybelline's trademark color and called the car triple white, with red interior and extra big whitewall tires.
Uncle Lyle, gathered up the gifts given to him from movie stars, magazine editors, studio executives and advertising tycoons and said he didn't need it all... and would rather see us enjoy the fancy dried fruit from Italy, the Belgium cookies, German chocolates and French pastille candy drops.


 Seeing such delights once a year was a thrill,
 but not nearly as exciting as when he handed us kids
 our Christmas envelopes filled with a crisp $10.00 bill.
  It doesn't seem like much now, but in today's market
 it would be more like $100.00.

 After dinner I sang Bali High from  South Pacific and
 danced the hula...in costume,



while my ten year old sister Donna, waited to
 make her entrance as Marilyn Monroe.
 I'll never forget her wearing
 pink wig, false eyelashes and holding a
 long cigarette holder while dancing to
 Bobby Darin'sMack The Knife.

It was all very entertaining, as you can well imagine,
 but nothing was more memorable than watching uncle
 Lyle's face, as he marveled at my adorable little 4 year
 old sister Billee, dancing to Rudolph the
Red Nosed Raindeer.

GIVEAWAY 5 - The Maybelline Story


If you know me, you know that I love to read and learn,
 but I absolutely have no time to read. This year one of
 the very few books I did read was The Maybelline Story.
 I just couldn't put this book down, and I know you won't
 be able to either. 

I am so excited to share this amazing book with you and the
 incredible story of the Maybelline Family. Sharrie Williams
 is the author of The Maybelline Story. She is the heir to the
 Maybelline legacy, is Tom Lyle William's great-niece and
 the granddaughter of Evelyn Boecher Williams. I am so
Fooling Mother Nature
 excited to have this
 beautiful and
 wonderful
 masterpiece that
 Sharrie created. 

The Maybelline story is about a young 19-year-old
 entrepreneur who rides the ups and downs of life while
 building a little company called Maybelline. It’s also about
 his incredible sister-in-law, Evelyn Williams, (Sharrie's
 grandmother) who is so deeply affected by vanity it leads
 to ultimate destruction.  In the midst of all the drama she
 grows up trying to sort out what's real and what has real
 value.  The book is a rags to riches story with an interesting
 moral in the end you won't forget.
