Hello Mackie lovers! As we struggle through winter with one big storm after another we must rally on and believe that spring will come! Let's fantasize, shall we? What is your favorite thing about spring? Mine is a pergola that we have in the front yard.

This is Ivo, myself and the kids standing in front of it last Easter.... currently it's covered in snow! Just when I think I just can't take it anymore,...

Hello Mackinistas! Happy Sunday! How was your weekend? It’s been a glorious week and weekend here in Pennsylvania! Perfect weather for anything outdoors, particularly a wedding! As many of you know, aside from being Bob Mackie’s Girl Friday, back up guest, and social media host, I am a floral designer for special events, primarily weddings. The wedding season is upon us and I thought that I would share the lovely looks each week in a column called “The Flower Report”. Since all the beautiful flowers of the world inspire Bob Mackie for his Wearable Art Collection, perhaps you will enjoy...
