Bathing Beauty!

When the summer heat is too much Betty hits the pool. As a member of the local country club, she finds the indoor pool the perfect place to escape the mid-day heat and enjoy a cool dip. This summer dive into the deep end while looking like a 1950's bathing beauty. All you need is one of these retro suits from Mod Cloth and your God given curves.

Cool off with these fun fans!

It is hard to imagine life before air conditioners but Betty survives the summer heat with just a fan and an ice cold drink. This summer save some electricity and live like a real mid-century woman with one of these cool finds. And you can keep any of these fans out all year! They will look wonderfully retro on any shelf or table.

Happy 4th of July!

Being the all American girl that she is, Betty loves the 4th of July. Every year she plans a festive barbeque, which her friends and neighbors rave about for weeks. Her Independence Day party is patriotic down to the smallest detail.

Before planning your own backyard bash check out this retro photo shoot by Tinywater Photography. It is sure to inspire! Then take a peak at Betty’s red, white and blue Etsy picks to help you recreate this summer event.
