Letters to Betsy

From the inside looking out

Posted by in Stuff I found

It is January. It is cold. It is dark, pretty much all the time. When I go to my car I walk at a swift pace as the wind just rushes at my face. Despite my futile attempts to stay warm in the Northeast the chill in the air is inescapable at least for the next few weeks. With that said I often find myself looking out the window to see what is happening outside. I look to see who is talking on the street corner or why flashing lights…read more

Beyond the Paint

Posted by in Stuff I found

As a girl who has had a life long passion for the arts, graffiti has always intrigued me. To use a can of spray paint on outdoor spaces in a way to express oneself seems dangerous and thrilling. Now when we think of graffiti some may think: “how can you consider that art?” Well, of course, there is a large variety of graffiti art, but one that is near and dear to my heart is the outdoor mural. When I was in sixth grade, our school was undergoing construction and…read more

Girl+Technology+Fashion

Posted by in Stuff I found

Most of us have succumbed to the technology disease, and the only remedy is a strong wi-fi signal. Seemingly overnight the technology craze has spread across the country and most of us are in an intense and passionate relationship with our smart phones, tablets and portable computers. We need constant attachment to our pictures, contacts and emails, and we are devastated when this access is denied. With all that said, carrying around these devices a person needs to remain chic and trendy. It’s not enough to just carry around the…read more

The Season is upon us

Posted by in Stuff I found

The count down to spring has started for the east coast. It has been one of the snowiest winters in history, and we’re all ready for the daffodils to start popping out of the ground. With what I hope to be the last storm behind us, I look back at the current season and remember all of the beautiful moments. Although this dark time of year can certainly bring the blues, it can also provide for fantastic photos that are nice to look at in July when we are having…read more

The City I always knew

Posted by in Stuff I found

I grew up in Philadelphia. As a kid, I always felt I knew everything about this place–what train to take into center city, and where to eat when we got there. It always felt so thrilling to be in the city; especially, since I was a teenager growing up in the quiet suburbs. Now that I am an adult, an adult that has lived out of the area for a while, revisiting my favorite places gives me a new appreciation for what I always knew was there. In fifth grade, my…read more

The Heart of the Matter

Posted by in Stuff I made

Typically, I am not a lover of all things Valentines. I love flowers, of course, and those little candy hearts with cute sayings, but generally it’s not a day that I countdown too . With the wicked weather we’ve experienced these past few weeks on the east coast, I thought why not turn over a new leaf. Perhaps it’s the cabin fever that brought on this change in spirit, but I began to sketch and design heart items. With that said, I decided why not share these items with the…read more

End of the Summer

Posted by in whereabouts

Hello all, I have decided with the change of the season I will resume my post on Letters To Betsy. I have to say that so much has happened since my last post and I can’t wait to share it all with you! My plan is to begin a new with a sense of invigoration, similar to who you have not spoken to in awhile. Once you have a moment to catch up it is as if nothing has changed and you pick up where you left off. With that…read more

Monogram it

Posted by in Stuff I found

There is something very personal about having your name and/or initials on an item. In my life the only times we outwardly seek this type of lettering is when we are born or when we are married and want to celebrate our new last name. Why not celebrate who we are and our unique initials any day of the year. It is personal touch that certainly will let everyone know that pillow is mine! My Pillow  Come and Knock on my door Name my plate  Seersucker Clutch Stamps on my…read more

Hello Monday!

Posted by in Stuff I found

The last few weeks have been quite busy for me.  I have really made a strong effort to capture each moment from heading out of town to graduations to just my normal life,  What was the result of all this traveling? I now have at least 1000 new pictures in my iphoto library. I am hoping to keep this tradition up by having a random set of week pictures for you every Monday. Monday can really be hit or miss, either a really boring day or just working for the…read more

There is something about a fountain

Posted by in Stuff I found

There is something about a fountain. It draws our attention and makes us want to jump in for a quick dip. However, in most cases,  we throw spare change in and make a wish. Fountains create a serene aesthetic that can relax us. The cool thing to me is the unique design of the fountain and the pool surrounding it. That alone can bring one to a peaceful moment where all is well with the world. Floating Sculpture Don’t Jump Geyser This guy is awesome I dream of pineapples
