Floral Libations...

Look at the lovely new book we've just gotten in!  I just LOVE this!!!  Isn't the cover so pretty?!?


Right on time for summer sipping, we've got a new spin on cocktails for the season.  This beautiful little book is as fun to read as it is to mix from.  Cassie Winslow has put together an inspiring book, indeed.  Click here: http://bit.ly/2GBH2fM to listen to an interview she did all about using florals in cocktails.  The photos are stunning as well...



Recipes include:
• Iced Lavender CafĂ© au Lait 
• Rose Petal Almond Milk
• Dandelion Tea Cinnamon Cappuccino 
• Hibiscus Old Fashioned
• Plum Rosewater Gin and Tonic 
• Orange Blossom Moscow Mule

Defiantly keep this on hand as a go-to gift.  Add a bottle or two of some special liquors, and you've got the perfect gift for a lake-house hostess gift.

P is for Picasso...



This is such a fun time of year as new merchandise really starts flooding in the door.  Here is just one of my favorite new things this week.  

Other than dots and stick figures, I have exactly "zero" talent for drawing, and have always been envious of those who can translate what's in their head onto paper.  These darling new paint by number kits are just the ticket for the art impaired.  Each tube contains a printed canvas, paints, brushes and a guide for painting.  When you're done, you have a delightful, professional looking floral painting.  I'm going to hunt around for a vintage frame to put around mine...   



There are several kits to chose from, all very pretty  florals.  They come packaged in a clever tube and contain everything you need for the project--I love that you don't have to scramble around for anything.  Wouldn't this make a thoughtful hostess gift for someone?  Or get several and make the painting part of a girls weekend where everybody gets to take home a masterpiece as well as the memories of doing them together.  




Stop in to see the kits in person, or shop online and we can send some right out to you.  Whichever one you chose, don't for get to sign your name when you finish...

Wintertime, Fireside...



As you surely know, we are huge fans of the Nest Fragrances line around here.  We have one of these extraordinary candles burning each and every day at Clever Girl, and I light one every evening at home.  

In my opinion, nothing is better on these dreary, damp, January evenings, than the Hearth Candle.  The fragrance is soft, smoky, rich and fills a room with personality.  Think English Gentleman's private club, Downton Abby, leather chairs, hounds, pipe tobacco (just a hint) and a heavy, cut crystal tumbler filled with a deep amber colored  bourbon.  Add some jazz, a good book, and, of course a fire, and there you have it.  This is an aristocratic scent that makes cold and snowy evenings instantly restful.  

Even if you don't have an actual fireplace, Hearth will transport you fireside and make these lingering winter evenings most pleasant...I absolutely recommend you have one on-hand until the first crocus raises its lovely head.
