and the living is easy! What I love most about summer is taking a vacation. And boy do I need one!

Rich and I are going on holiday for a week in July…my whole family (mother, father, siblings, nieces, nephews…and even my sister’s mother-in-law and sister-in-law!) We’re renting a big house at the same destination as always…the Outer Banks in North Carolina.

I’m planning on really making the most of this week. I am going to take naps, read good books, sip on lovely drinks with umbrellas sticking out, daydream, work on a jigsaw puzzle, and play with the little ones. “How beautiful it is to do nothing and then rest afterwards.”


Isn’t that the loveliest word…free! Just for today (Wednesday, June 8) with every order that mentions this blog, you’ll get a free little egg cup.

Just shop and add a message to the checkout form that lets me know you’d like an egg cup.

Spread the word! Who wouldn’t like a free egg cup?

Have a happy day!


Oops…I missed this one…

When I posted new products, I forgot to show you these…

Aren’t they just as sweet as can be? There are 6 different designs and we have plenty in stock.

a site to see…

I found this delightful little site last week and immediately placed an order for a half a dozen different things.

I’m especially excited about the little metal drawer.

I bought 6 of them but I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them yet…I think it would be lovely to contrast the rough oldness of the outside with something pretty inside.

New product line

I’m excited about a new fragrance line that I will introduce next week. It’s going to be featured in Bon Appetit magazine as the best food related fragrance ever! It has a top note of blood oranges…and it smells absolutely divine.

Also, here’s a little Hollywood gossip…a big name Hollywood producer is having a party and is giving this fragrance to all of the female guests. Suffice it to say that all of the Jennifers will be there. Oh yes! You know who we mean!

They are sending me sample vials of the fragrance to give to customers who’d like to try the fragrance first. Please let me know if you’d like for me to add one to your order.

The packaging is so beautiful and I just know that you will love it. Think…fresh, light, clean…but with a hint of sultry.
