Another Time...


I've been loving the series Boardwalk Empire on HBO. It makes me dream of another time and world. Here are some Etsy finds inspired by those fabulous roaring 20's!


The series Boardwalk Empire was inspired by a book based on a true story. It is set in Atlantic city at the dawn of the prohibition.

The sets are incredible and the fashions are amazing! It's hard to believe that this story is bases on true events. It's riveting.

You can catch it on Sunday nights on HBO. Have a great weekend mes amis!

  4. One of my favorite time periods. My Grandmother always vacationed in A.C. I went there often as a child and I actually lived there right before and during the time period when they were building the first casino. It was very much like the movie 'Atlantic City' with Burt Lancaster and Susan Sarandon. Sadly, it's about as tacky as a place can be now, but it is very near home and so I go about once a year - mostly for the memories. Hope you get that vacation you've been longing for!
