8/16/21 - August Postcard from Maine

8/16/21 - August Postcard from Maine

Greetings from glorious "Vacationland" (the Maine license plates actually say Vacationland).   We have enjoyed our beautiful first two weeks in my idea of paradise, but the last two days have been full of fog, to the point where the sea salt in my little salt dish is all clumped together.   A perfect opportunity to pick up the proverbial pen, or keyboard, as it were.

7/05/21 - Summer Pleasures - Lilies!

7/05/21 - Summer Pleasures - Lilies!
My lilies are going absolutely crazy this year.   What pure JOY they bring.  And what beautiful weather we've had here in Virginia this weekend.   I know some of you in New England have not been as lucky.

My fabulous friend Mona texted me last week, "Did you see the Queen's pink floral dress?   Loved it!   You must source it!"

She was sure right.   The pink frock she was referring to is below - but I just loved the Queen's pretty smile in the image above - so I had to include that one too.  In another beautiful floral, also from the G7 Summit.   I hope you enjoy some fun finds fit for a queen this week.

5/21/21 - The Door To Summer is Opening
Memorial Day weekend is four sleeps away.  The excitement is palpable - like an evening's symphony of cicadas building to a cresendo.  Summer is coming!!!  This time it will include cocktail parties, weddings, dances, houseguests, and even hugging.   If I were to inventory everything I love about summer, the internet would crash before your spam detector could even block this email.   So I'll pick just one highlight - The Ocean House Resort in Watch Hill Rhode Island.
