Let’s Do Brunch!

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 […]

Knock Their Socks Off – Online

I absolutely adore socks, and online shops are the best places to find them, the most variety. That is really strange for me to say because just a few years ago I didn’t have a pair of socks to my name.  Not one.  I had some little socklet things that I wore when I went […]

Isn’t It Romantic? Special Places Online

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 […]

To Write, or Not To Write – Journaling Online

My love affair with journaling started with a blank journal that Oprah sent me.  I think it was for an online meditation series, but the journal arrived long after the meditation series was over. “Mmmmm,” I recall thinking. “Whatever shall I do with this?”  It was a nice journal, much too nice for my modest […]

I’m Singing In The Rain — Umbrellas, Galoshes, etc.

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, […]

Greenhouse gardening

Greenhouse Gardening

I lived most of my life in California, the land of perpetual springtime, where greenhouses were not really needed.  Now that I am in Oregon, I understand the importance of greenhouse gardening, and except for some books at my local bookstore, information seems to be woefully lacking, especially reliable information. You see, I’ve just got […]

Fly Away With Butterfly Caftans

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 […]

Cruzin’ in Style: Clothes For A Cruise

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 […]

Life Is A Picnic!

So … I’m writing about a picnic website as winter is descending upon us?  You bet.  Sure, picnics are fun in spring and summer, and even fall, and they are also a joy in the wintertime. How would your sweetie feel if you put together a picnic basket, added a rose on top, then stretched […]

A Carousel Of Delights

Sometimes you just need to let the kid in your heart shine.  Such a time is when I think of carousels. Oh the magical rides at the boardwalk when I struggled to reach for the brass ring.  And I got a small carousel music box when I was about ten.  I played it and played […]
