The Today Show, Oh My!

So we were featured on the today show last week! What a great thing this is, it was completely unexpected and we didn’t even realize that was Kathy Lee with us! She must have thought we had great “game face” But we did not realize who she was! This is not unusual in my world, […]

The Red Couch Giveth Still&...

So we went to preview an auction this weekend and were able to pick up a check from the auction house for the old couch! Lo and behold someone paid 450.00 for it! So the couch just keeps giving… I hope the new owners have as much fun with it as we did! There were […]

Food and Writing About Food

Time to ruminate on eating again as I have just had a decadent month in July.

Auction Action, Great Buys&...

Last weekend was one of our favorite auctions, Wilson and Terry. We made a point of attending as we had seen two great rugs and a wonderful old fountain of a cherub straddling a shell. The thing about auctions is this, first if you have a gambling problem, do not get a bidding number, and […]

Happy Holidays!

I cannot think where the time has gone, but here it is 2 days before Thanksgiving already! I have to hustle and make my famous butternut bisque and all the traditional favorites. And the weather is certainly conspiring to remind me of my childhood…growing up in New York it was ALWAYS very cold and greyish. […]
