Au revoir

Betty is off to the city of lights with her husband. Spring is the perfect time to visit Paris as the weather is lovely and the tourists have yet to arrive. Wearing the latest fashions, Betty and her husband people watch at street cafes while sipping cafe lattes and munching on croissants. They stroll the streets and enjoy the sights in the most romantic city in the world. Allured by the good food, cheese, pastries and wine they secretly wish to relocate and spend a year in France living among the Parisians!

Wherever you go this summer take vintage luggage like this set ( and everyone is sure to say ooh la la. See you in two weeks when Betty returns from France. Au revoir!

May Flowers

All winter Betty waits for spring so that she can get back into her garden. Even though her backyard is in full bloom, she makes sure her colorful planters are filled and placed stratigically around the patio and house. Fresh cuttings in a lovely ceramic vase also make a thoughtful hostess gift when Betty visits her friends. So this year make sure your May flowers are displayed in mid-century style!
