April is my favorite time of year since it is the month of my birth and the beginning of spring. The flowers and trees will burst into bloom this month and I can’t wait to take a daily walk in Central Park to see their progression. They are already seeing daffodils pop up across the […]

I’ve always had an affinity for Easter since it heralds the beginning of spring and often falls around my April birthday. This year, I’ll be returning from a birthday trip to Charleston on Easter but I still hope to create a pretty table top for a late meal. If you need any help planning for […]

I was very saddened to hear that Sir John Richardson died today at the age of 95. I just received an advance copy of his new book John Richardson: At Home last week and I was hoping to meet him at a signing or attend a speaking engagement. His loss is sad because his level of […]

I’m going to be honest, I don’t love Miami but I’ll take warm weather where ever I can get it in in the middle of winter. I’m not into the nightclub scene though so I try to find outings that appeal to my more refined aesthetics which is why I love Vizcaya Museum and Gardens […]
