I had a wretched time choosing an image for this puppets blog post. There are just so many inspiring, incredible ideas for puppets of all kinds, like Shadow puppets String puppets Hand puppets Finger puppets Chinese puppets Mexican puppets Indian puppets Eskimo puppets Storybook puppets Clown puppets French puppets Animal puppets Paper bag puppets Spoon puppets Bali puppets Japanese puppets Sock puppets … Well, you see my problem. The pink costumed ones above are actually string puppets created in India. Aren’t they gorgeous! There are so many kinds of puppets that creating a blog just on “puppets” may be...Read More

I actually coached someone once with a bathroom design blog. Gee, we had fun. There are so many styles to choose from, like: A bordello bath (Can-Can dancers and red/pink all over!) Sailing Poppies Balloons Lavender fields The Littlest Mermaid Rockers and rappers Cello rhapsody Pink! Picasso style Oh, my I could go on and on. Truly. If you can think of a theme or idea, there is likely a bathroom decor concept that will fit with it nicely. And for such a relatively small space, there is just so much stuff that goes into it, like: Towels Bath...Read More
Tiny homes can be built out of almost anything — wood, an old caboose, steamer containers, mud. My next door neighbor has a tiny home that she calls a “studio”. Well, it’s got a bed and electricity and even a poddy, so I’d call it a tiny home. And it is so cute — it even has a loft area for storage or sleeping. (I want one!) Tiny homes have two things in common: (1) They are small, and (2) They are really IN right now. Whether for a vacation home, a rental property, a studio, or a forever...Read More
Breakfast is nice. And so is lunch. But Brunch is a celebration! My friend Carolyn once invited 50 or so guests to a Sunday brunch pig roast, not mentioning that a wedding ceremony would precede the brunch itself. It was, without doubt, one of the most splendid weddings I’ve ever attended. Your brunch may not have a wedding hidden in it, but my guess is that it will still have loads of fun, food and laughter. Brunches are just great. They are much easier to put together than fancy dinners. There is tremendous variety for all pallets, from roast...Read More
No matter the season — the holidays, summer swimming, ski season, fall fashions — lots of us need to slim down. And lots of us just do it better and easier with a weight loss coach. This is why some national weight loss programs are so successful — they offer personal coaches. If you are a dietician, a trainer, a physician assistant or nurse experienced with weight loss clients, there is a real place for you online. The drawback with weight loss coaches locally is that they aren’t everywhere. There are humongous sections of the US that just don’t...Read More
It seems like every romantic place online has been written about a gazillion times, at least I thought so. But my cohort reeeeally wanted a site about romantic places in California, especially for us older folks. So I started looking, and yes, there were a lot of sites about San Francisco and la Jolla and Montecito and other places, but none of them focused on the romantic aspects of those places. Gee willikers, I thought, here was a wide open area. So our site came into being. We called it “California Rendezvous”. You won’t find it online anymore. When...Read More
As with many lovely things in life, umbrellas came to me rather serendipitously. A few years ago I was wandering through the Embarcadero Center in San Francisco, truly one of the great small shop meccas of the country, when I chanced upon a whole store of umbrellas. Not so much as a single rain coat, but hundreds of umbrellas. I was in awe. I owned several umbrellas of course — a couple of black ones, and a red one. But I had never owned one with Monet’s “Water Lilies” or white clouds skipping over a rich blue sky. I...Read More
For those with true sewing skills, caftans are not difficult to create, and one size pretty much fits all. I once had a dream of opening a “butterfly caftan shop” in Pacific Grove, California, where the monarchs come to rest each year. I had the business all planned out. Each caftan I created would be named after a particular butterfly, and there are thousands of butterflies to choose from. Each tag would have a picture of the real butterfly, with a bit of information about it. What a wonderful caftan collection it was going to be! Blues and golds...Read More
This is the perfect business for the fashionista who travels: clothes for that Caribbean cruise, or for the Alaskan cruise, or the Mediterranean cruise. This idea comes to mind because I once again stepped into a local store with my favorite saleswoman, Lindy. Lindy just knows Style. She just knows what goes with what, and what looks good on me. And she really knows how to dress for a cruise. I watched her one day as she sold nearly twenty pieces to a woman going on a cruise. It was all mix and match. It all packed easily. And...Read More
Go … frolic! Or soak to your heart’s content in soooooothing silky organic bubble bath. This is a product that you can create, one you can really make your own. Years ago when I was a librarian I got hold of a brand new book stuffed with ideas on how to make your own soaps, bubble bath, bath salts, rosewater and bunches of other goodies. I got so carried away with it that I did up a big batch of rosewater, created labels and gave them as gifts to all my friends. They loved it. I loved giving it. ...Read More
