A DC Metro vintage fanatic's perspective covering all things from vintage fashion and vintage life to surviving the Beltway and the modern world!

Late yesterday afternoon, it started to sleet and snow here in the DC Metro Region. The amount of snow was trivial and by noon today, most of it was gone. The above picture (showing the view from my front porch) was taken at 8:00 am this morning. It was so pretty. I wish the area got more! I am so jealous that Boston is getting nearly two feet!
Here is a view of the backyard:
Here is the cat gazing out the sunroom door:
For some reason, whenever I straighten the door mat, my 14 year-old persian likes to move it/wrinkle it. Maybe she is practicing cat Feng Shui and a wonky rug brings good chi! (Jk!)
The above picture shows the other side of my street, looking from my front porch. I wish it would look this way all winter long! I have snow/ski fever bad so I am a bit snow-crazy right now! I have even been having ski dreams!
Note: As of 1-22-11, My blog, "Betty's Vintage Musings," is now "The DC Metro Retro."
I was born in the mid-70s in Richmond, Virginia to two fabulous European-born parents. My Norwegian father father taught me to be intelligent and kind, while my Irish mother instilled a sense of fierce strength and independence. Growing up in the 80s, my friends pined for Poison tickets and Guess jeans yet I loved The Cure and wanted vintage wool cardigans and black satin bullet bras. I prided myself on standing apart from the mainstream and having the "audacity" to think for myself.
So, here I am, 15-20 years later. I am still in vintage and still questioning everything. I went to college, got married, and earned a Master's Degree. I am a linguist, artist, amateur makeup artist, and business owner. Yet no matter what my job title is or what style I wear, the one thing that matters to me the most is to be kind to everyone.
Fight for what you believe in, family and friends come first, and use logic and reason always.
