I discovered Retronaut this week and it’s filled with nostalgia from all decades like these images of 1914 Paris in color.

    That poinsettia garland is wonderful! I watched the White House tour through Bo’s eyes a few times. So fun! Beautifully decorated and Bo is just adorable. All pretty gold shoes….I like the Ivanka Trump pair. A classic shoe and yes on the glitter. That would add a little pizazz to any Christmas outfit. Have a great weekend Katr.

    I love the garland! Have to try that! I can’t ever have real poinsettias in the house since they are poisonous to cats and the fake ones aren’t pretty at all. So this might be a great solution ;)

    In that first photo, do you happen to know if that’s wallpaper or a stencil on the wall? If that’s a stencil, I want that kind of desperately! :)
