Oh, and did we mention that they look and feel AMAZING ?   This will be the last water bottle you'll ever buy--every Clever Girl wants needs one.  Six great colors to choose from.  Dare we hint that these would make a terrific Mother's Day gift........

Bunnies, Birds & Bulbs....

Yes, yes.  I know, I know.  Yet another wild-life up date.  But these little guys are back in full force--and numbers I've never seen. Everywhere I turn lately I'm encountering rabbits.  Cute, cuddly and oh-so-sweet looking now....but they will be eating their way through everything in sight in a few short weeks......

And from the "It's a Hoot" department.......A pair of owls are apparently auditioning our neighborhood up in Michigan.  Every evening they call to one another from high up in the pine trees.    Hoo-hoo calls the first. [Pause]  Hoo-hoo comes the reply.  It goes on this way for quite some time.  Not the most in-depth discussion perhaps, but they definitely are having a chat...What are they saying I wonder?  The view from above must be lovely--the trees are beginning to bud out, and the daffodils and tulips are well on their way to blooming.  Speaking of forced bulbs are also blossoming in full force.
Nothing fills the house with the fresh smell of spring like these beautiful, periwinkle, Hyacinth  flowers. I chill them all winter in the bottom drawer of the fridge, and plant them up in January. Now is the pay off. Papery round bulbs yield sturdy stalks, green leaves, and these amazing, fragrant flowers. 

I hope you're enjoying the longer, warmer days. Spring has sprung.  Hope to see all of you soon!

REAL Drama

Today is the day...Whether you've seen any of the films or not, we all love the Oscars, right? Lately, the red carpet walk has become the most exciting part--now it's more for the fashion (thank you Cher) than the movies. It's also now the longest show ever. From the pre-show to the final prize, and the requisite follow up analysis of who wore what, the Academy awards are now something like 18 hours long. Let's face it: It's a commitment.

And, lest you forget Clever Girls, there is a fresh season of Rachel Zoe to be seen in a few months on Bravo. They are filming right now and dear Rachel is surely dressing several movie stars even as you read this. Can you say drama? Will Brad be able to take the pressure? Is Rodger being supportive, and is Taylor still on the team? (I think NOT!)

I do miss Rachel. No one clutches a Starbucks cup quite like she does, and her protruding clavicle bones set off her jewelry in unique way. This is the big day. Triumphs and tears, so tune in girls and let's see how it all turns out. And the winner is.......................
