  • A Classic look

    Happy Friday!  It's snowing. Again!  Big flakes today.... they say big flakes, little snow.  We'll see.  I hope it's not too much because I am off to the Q today to join Shawn Killinger at 12 noon for the Q Check hour.  I'm very excited to share a gorgeous jacket with you.  A230966.  Bob Mackie's Ponte Knit Button Front Jacket: This is the red, but it also comes in green, grey, purple and turquoise.  Now based on the description the design could have been many different things, but here you see this is a longer jacket with very classic seaming...

  • A snowy winter

    Happy New Year friends!  How was the joyous time for you ringing in 2014?  We were quietly sipping some champagne at home.  After a whirlwind of craziness throughout the entire holiday, I always find New Year's to be my calming down period.  On New Year's Day I actually did a major clean out of all the things 'I just don't need'.  Do you have stuff like that?  It felt GREAT.  We are taking our tree and decorations down today. In the world of weddings I was already busy with an gorgeous wedding last night.  The Bride's vision was a romantic...

  • What is your color for the holidays?

    As an floral and decor event designer, I work very hard throughout the year creating gorgeous works for all sorts of events.  It's a job that I love because no two events are the same and it allows my creativity to flow.  Christmas is the one time of the year that I host my own event where I go all out with the floral and decor… Christmas Even.  It's almost become a contest each year of out doing the last.  When my guests arrive now they are always so curious to see what the table looks like.  We literally remove...

  • Holiday tradition

    What is your favorite thing to do at Christmas time?  Do you have any special traditions or places you visit at this time of year?  We take our children to have breakfast with Santa each year.  It's something that they look forward to with great joy.  To be honest, Ivo and I love it just as much.  It starts off with 'Mrs. Claus' singing christmas carols with all the families.  Then Santa make his big entrance.  They have face painting, artists making balloon animals and a very yummy breakfast.  We grabbed a great family photo there this year: As you...
