Michael Jackson

My husband has loved Michael Jackson since 1983, he has collected ALL things Michael for many many many years.... Here is some of our most random memorabilia...
When we found out we were pregnant with our first born we purchased these MJ L.A .Gears, the store only had pink, we obviously never had need for pink shoes, but we still have them!

These 24 karat gold dipped albums proudly hang in our home.



Another random fact the middle names of our sons are:
Michael Joseph Jackson

Obviously our home is filled with sadness for this iconic loss!

That's ashame. He had some good music. More and more people are dying young.

May Michael Jackson rest in peace despite some of the negative things said about him.

I'm still in shock... I am glad it was YOU who called me. We have been listening to MJ music all day... still at midnight we have him playing. I remember roller skating in my garage to MJ songs "The Way You Make Me Feel" being my all-time fav... ugh so sad :(

My Mom called me yesterday to tell me he had passed away and it just didn't seem real. He was larger than life, extremely talented and yet full of sadness. He will be missed by so many... Lori

Wait a minute?? Did you name their middle names after Michael Jackson??
Also, I didn't realize they had MJ L.A. Gear.
Sorry for your sadness...

Hey Jen, didn't you guys also have a Michael Jackson doll? I remember something like that when we were helping you reorganize your pantry. I know...doesn't it feel like a piece of our childhood is now gone?

Oh man... my hubby loved him too. I bet this is how people felt when John Lennon died too.

It's sad, but I do have the memories... Like the fact that he did inspire fashion for me in the fourth grade. I had this awesome red leather jacket that was covered with zippers. Somehow I convinced my Grandmother that I really needed it for Christmas. Lunchtimes and recess were never the same. Hours spent practicing the Thriller dance and the moonwalk. Good times... :)
