heavens to betsy by kim smith

Heavens to Betsy. What a fun saying. I was explaining it to my 10-year-old while I was painting this flower. Enjoy!

What does that expression mean, Kim? Such a sweet image, a sweet expression and a dear moment for the two of you.

Thank you Cecelia and Sue. It's an old-fashioned exclamation of surprise, Oh, heavens to Betsy! I have no idea what it's origin is, but I have fond memories of my grandmother saying it!
