Pin up Plan Workout for Betty Grable Legs:
Hugs and Smooches,


  1. It's so great that she was known for something other than clevage! And that perfectly proportioned legs aren't toothpicks. I've always been a girl larger thighs, during junior high and high school, I wanted the toothpick legs of my friends, but now I am quite happy with my more shapely legs.

    1. I know! She was such a lovely woman. She has always been my favorite character in "How to Marry a Millionaire" ;-)

  2. I adore Betty. Her and I are both from St Louis! I'm working on sewing that gorgeous chartreuse outfit she wore in Pin Up Girl. Love your blog!! x

    1. Oooohhh, I would LOVE to see pictures of that outfit when you're done!

  3. I tried the work-out, ouch ;)
    I couldn't do everything because of lack of space. Tomorrow I'll know if it worked ;)

    1. I have space issues as well ;) I love it when the weather gets warm and I can move my work-outs outside!

  4. Adore Betty Grable lovely!! Awesome post!


Thank you for your comment! I read every one of them and they make my day :) Please do not post as anonymous (sadly, I have had issues with spammers lately :( Have a beautiful day!
