Happy President's Day!

And on this honorable day, why not give a shout out to one of the most fabulous First Lady's and her renovation of the White House 1961-1963.  See/read all about the renovation at www.whitehousemuseum.org.  A few of my favorite photos...

Color photo of Jackie's tour of the white house (which aired in black & white) in 1962

Jackie's bedroom


The White House Blue Room as redecorated by St├ęphane Boudin in 1962. 


Caroline's bedroom... I remember having a canopy bed just like this one


John Jr.'s nursery - LOVE the old school "play pen"... why don't we use these anymore??


Green room - Moire green silk walls by Sister Parrish 


First Cowgirl Caroline Kennedy riding "Macaroni the Pony" up the south lawn (notice in the background the torn up rose garden which Jackie overhauled)
