Spring Roses - 1950's Style!

It's not January yet and I'm already tired of winter. Here in Boston, we've been inundated with tons of early snow, with lots more to come. Yesterday, I went in search of something to make me smile and found this vintage 1950's beauty just waiting for it's time. That time is now, as I listed it at auction last night.

I just love this print of pink and red roses. It brings to mind a rose garden in June. This authentic vintage dress is all cotton, so you'll stay cool and fresh in the heat of summer. Come on, now. Aren't you tired of winter, too?

Orange is My New Favorite Color

I've got orange on my mind. The other night, hubby and I sat down to watch Iron Chef America. Lo and behold, it was Battle Carrot! OK, yeah, I like carrots just fine. But the things these chefs did with the lowly carrot were just incredible! And the gorgeous shades of orange looked beautiful on the plate, especially when combined with shades of green and yellow.

We've started to add hats for Spring to our site, and look what I found! Not one, but two stunning vintage 1960's hats in brilliant orange. I think it's time orange made a comeback in my wardrobe. How about yours?
