Polka Dots and Moonbeams = Wow!

I love polka dots, especially the ones that scamper all over.  I love everything about polka dots.  They come in every color, every size, every style … something to suit just about everyone. In college I once took a waitress job just because their uniforms were polka dots.  OK, that’s not the greatest reason to […]

African Prints Blog

An African prints blog is just one option.  No matter what your ethnic background or knowledge, this applies to you as well. Simply put, Ethnic is BIG.  Very BIG.  HUGE.  IMMENSE. A wise friend once told me that in troubled times we reach out to embrace our own.  I believe that is true. And in […]

Diet for Elders Blog

You don’t have to be elderly to appreciate the fact that our diets change as we age, and a diet especially for the elderly is a real blessing. Suppose, for example, that your parents or grandparents or other treasured older person had special dietary needs. Yes, their doctor could provide some guidelines, but to make […]

Online Kite Shop

Go fly a kite!  It is a great business — creative, fun, even profitable. We’ve all felt the tug of a kite line pulling our dreams high into the sky, and watched dozens and dozens of incredible creations join us on a breezy day. This joyful kiting is nearly universal, reaching across oceans. I didn’t […]

The Mystery and Romance 0f A Russian Porcelain Blog

When I was very young my mother gifted me several Russian porcelain ballerinas, much like in the picture.  How I wish I had kept those treasures! A few years ago a dear friend gifted me a collection of six blue and gold Russian porcelain teacups and saucers.  I still have those, and I thoroughly believe […]

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 […]

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 […]

umbrellas

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, […]

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 […]
