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 take a job, but the polka dots made me happy … and that’s a very good reason to take a job. Just now my favorite piece of clothing is a yellow and white polka dot jacket, or maybe the mint green polka dot scarf,...Read More

Go ahead … just try to choose one exquisite perfume bottle for your blog image. It can’t be done. There are thousands and thousands of totally amazing perfume bottles to choose from. My Aunt Francy had a boudoir table filled with glorious perfume bottles, each hand crafted and each containing a different fragrance. I remember as a child sneaking into her bedroom just to get a peek at the treasures she kept there. They were so glorious — butterflies, exotic flowers, dancing ladies, swirling designs, and some that look like cloud puffs. And once in a while Aunt Francy...Read More
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 joyful times we also reach out to embrace our own, along with everyone else. Taking pride in who we are as individuals is celebrated in our culture. It shows in our artwork, in our attire, in our home decor, even in our gardens. For...Read More

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 fully appreciate the extent of this worldwide pasttime until I lived in San Diego where sunshine reigns and brisk breezes from the cool Pacific keep hundreds of kites aloft on any given day. There was even a wonderful kite shop down by the harbor. ...Read More
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 that tea tastes better when I use them. Alas, that is all I truly know of Russian porcelain. If you should happen to know more, or have a passion for learning more, this would be such a beautiful blog business to pursue. No matter...Read More
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 on a walk in my sports shoes, or went to the gym, but that was it. You see, I was in California. Then I moved to Oregon. I arrived in spring and I distinctly recall thinking how quaint it was that local department stores...Read More
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 thoughts, and I was much too busy to do that journaling thing-y anyhow. So it sat on my bookshelf for many months. Then one day I took it with me when I went for a walk in the woods, and my poetry life came...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
