A Trip Down Whiskey Lane

Good friends don't let friends leave the house looking schlumpy! That's why I'm sharing a FANTASTIC insider fashion tip with you: Whiskey Lane women's clothing and accessories. I had the great pleasure of meeting the owner (and stylist extraordinaire) Sarah Wehr, @shopwhiskeylane, at a recent charity fundraising event. Sarah is…

Introducing the Black Orchid™ Collection

I'm happy to say it's now available - a timeless selection of sterling silver, gemstone and fashion jewelry designs - sold exclusively through charity events and home parties. Most items are priced…

Beauty and the Brunch

Back in the 1950’s, my mother purchased these beautiful dishes for my Auntie Anne. Auntie Anne was a true mentor of mine … an artistic lady with exquisite taste and style. About 30 years ago, Anne passed these dishes onto me. I really covet them. Not only for the charming…

The Accidental Designer

  I stumbled across the following feature story on OneKingsLane.com that I am excited to share with you. It reaffirms what I’ve always believed: GREAT things happen when you follow your dreams! For many years, Interior Designer Timothy Corrigan was just another DIY-er with a glue gun and a dream.…

Sip, Sip Hooray!

On the next sunny day, head to your favorite patio and try something new! This "Pink Bikini" is a sweet and refreshing cocktail that could easily become your new summer go-to. If you prefer your drinks a little on the fancy side, you’re going to love this one. But fair warning: it…

The Classic Rich Lady Look

I love GOLD -- and I'm so glad it's back! I created these two bold gold necklaces in 2012. You can never go wrong with a thick gold chain ... it always add glamour and luxury. The bottom necklace is called the "Valesca" -- the name came from a random list of…

Enjoy the Little Things

I am captivated by the great work of certain designers who skillfully transform tiny spaces into fully functional kitchens. They make the task of maximizing every square inch look so easy. Since moving back to California (and, admittedly, into cramped quarters) I  have a new-found appreciation for those who make the most of it!

Trays for Days!

Those who know me well are surely familiar with my tray obsession. I never entertain without presenting a tray full of finger food. I use them to organize and display my skincare and colognes. And I use one in bed ... for fine dining in front of the TV! I have quite a collection of…
