Living In The Past

This women in Amsterdam leads the ultimate "retro" lifestyle.  Ms. Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse (by the way, Hedwig was Hedy Lamarr's real first name) owns a historical consultancy company.  Need vintage clothing, cars, appliances, etc. for a TV or movie shoot?  That is what she does, but she lives her work.  As posted on Yahoo, she has forgone the trappings of 21st century life, and lives like it is 1938.  Other than her computer (for work) and her refrigerator (has not found a nice 1930's model yet), everything in her home is from the late 1930's.
