Ahhh...The Art of The Picnic

Spring, spring, its a wonderful thing. And, what is my favorite thing to do in the spring? Pack up our NEW Insulated Cooler Market Basket with sandwiches, tortellini salad and micro-sodas and head to the park or the beach. A couple of ice packs in the bottom and a blanket on top and you are ready for the Boston Pops Concert, watching the FAGAWI Yacht Race or a regular day of fun and sun in the sand with your friends. In your choice of blue, pink or green bubble polkadots too!

A Farewell To Splashy...

We lost our little family goldfish "Splashy" over the weekend...(we got her LAST weekend, she lasted 5 days.) So, as per request by my daughter, this is an "Ode To Splashy"...please bow your heads.

Splashy was a really good fish
Until my mom decided to clean her dish.
She was my new pet, you see.
Mom said, "Trust your baby to me!"
The job filled her with delight
But soon became a giant fright.
We fed her and loved her over the week.
But turns out her little heart was bleak.
We watched her not eating in her bowl.
That's when her stomach started to roll.
We watched her take her final breath
As she swam down to her death.
There was a silent hush
As we made the final flush.
When mom told me that she died
I bowed my little head and cried.

Heading Away for Memorial Day?

Ahhh...the annual rush to the Shore for Memorial Day weekend. What are you and yours doing? As usual, HH has his golf tournaments all weekend, the kids are off, and grandma and grandpa are begging to see them. Time for a trip to Connecticut for us! Luckily I have my gorgeous new Rope Weekender Duffle and matching Everyday Tote and Cosmetic bag to travel in style. A girl shouldn't go anywhere without her matching luggage...

For Your Sugar Daddy... my hubby always has wads of cash in his pocket. (OK...they are all ones. But there are always at least 5 of them!) I decided that we needed to have our amazing silver artist, Amy, create a new Money Clip for Father's Day for all of our wonderful "Sugar Daddy's" out there. Now, HH can fold his ones up respectfully and keep them in a clip that reminds him of his kids every time he pulls out his money to buy them something. :) Don't miss this goodie for Father's Day! At only $32.00 you still have enough left over to get him that annual tacky tie too...

Time To Stop and Smell The Roses (Or The Begonias In This Case!)

Just bought these beautiful Begonias for our front porch. The amazing coral-pink color just JUMPED out at me at the garden center, and I had to have them. This amazing bold pink is my new inspiration for 2009...I think we will be adding more "Begonia Pink" to our product line this year!
