I have been preparing for my Spring Fling this week so I have been pretty busy. What a fun day! I had a Preppy Potato Trunk Show and everyone loved the belts. Also had some art...here is a piece I purchased and hung over my ladies writing desk. It is painted on an old door. Also, I bought this pair of topiarys and I have the perfect place for them. Everyone, Have a great weekend!!!!

Jenn at Seersucker Stories asked, what is the best money you have spent?...well, i said a glider rocker but...when my sister had these Kork-ease shoes, and I was too young to have them, I have searched high and low for them since then. Well...Hello...they are now back at Nordstrom and Zappos, which is where I purchased them. Came in one day, as usual.
These are actually navy, which I needed, Preppy or not. I don't care...LOVE THEM!
Did anyone else see Babel and wonder why it was up for an Academy Award? And supporting actresses up for awards were Cate Blanchett and the Japanese girl, but to me the Housekeeper was the best. A couple of questions: Did anyone notice that the housekeeper dropped the children in the dessert without shoes on and then when she went for help had on her high heels in the sand? How did "the mom" really die, did she shoot herself or jump off the balcony? And, the deaf girl wrote the investigator that short note, but when he was reading it at the end, it appeared very long...Just a few questions...any answers?

My dear friend's daughter said that "Mrs. Norman has never made or monogrammed for me"...so, here is her beach bag. Her favorite color is periwinkle so the straps are periwinkle and the lining is periwinkle and white checked. It is simple but cute for a young lady...
So sad...I didn't even take Easter pictures this morning. It was sooo cold and and my azaelias had frozen:( They were beautiful Thursday! ) We didn't really break-out the new Easter clothes, but wore warm spring clothes instead. I think we are moving into the next stage of life...Harry did hunt Easter eggs Thursday at school and today at The Farm after lunch. But, no pics from today. Did get some at school though...
I really was just making these not to sell, but someone did request one for a birthday present. I knew she loved animal print. I liked the giraffe fabric and the inside is a brown linen damask with a periwinkle checked pocket. Kerry, at More, More, More can't get mad because she is on a spending freeze this month anyway. I promise to make her one soon...
My husband left with my youngest two, heading towards Augusta for the third round of The Masters .You know I have said..."Nothing says preppy like 'The Masters'". Oldest child is going to a birthday dance party and he said..."can't I just take money?"...the overacheiver in me says NO!...But, I bought this cute bag for $7.00 made by Two's Company and I put a name on it. Great gift...I think! My oldest and I are home and I am hoping my friend will come watch "Walk the Line" while our two are at the party.
I can't get over this website! I just used my springfling discount to take 15% off these already VERY reasonable prices. I ordered stickers for graduation gifts and labels for all my children! Check it out ...Touch of Whimsy Some samples I ordered!
Are you so tired of me talking about my birthday? I just made this ribbon necklace the day of and thought I would share. I've seen grosgrain ribbon necklaces before but I braided three different types of ribbon and attached to a belt buckle...No more talk about...you know what...
I had a fabulous warm and sunny day. I had lunch at Chelsea's Tea Room with some of my best girlfriends. I have many thank you notes to write. I'll replenish my supply from Traylor Papers. I love Lulu...
