A Greener Easter

Isn't this a great idea instead of the plastic grass in your kids Easter basket? You can recycle paper, magazines, whatever and then if you are real ambitious, use it for shipping! I'm trying to be more green, each little bit counts. We are definitely going to make this grass and we already recycle our baskets. Check out this site for more ideas posted on Simple Organic by Vintage Chica.

Spring has sprung in Chester

It's so fun to see all the new treasures arriving at the store that I found this winter. It's like I'm discovering them all over again and then I get to share them with you! We just got in some fun, flowery hints of spring to wear in your hair, on your new spring jacket or to jazz up your favorite bag!
"Kings have a system so they can just sit.
I figured that out by watching Sleeping Beauty."

Lazy Sunday...started off snuggled up reading lots of stories then took a hike in the woods with our wellies and umbrellas, then the adults snuck away for a little Brahms, then a little fried oysters what a nice day!!

Jean Paul Gaultier

Jean Paul Gaultier with his World-Traveler theme for the fall collection in Paris. Now that's a look I love! I was just reminiscing about turbans. In the late 80s I would wear them when I worked at MSJ! For those of you who know, how hard are you laughing?!? Maybe I should bring them back. Love the coat with the tails, the peek a boo, and the fun print showing off the legs. I guess these days, this will be my way of traveling. This used to be the time we would head off to Italy or Paris, now we are home making snowmen!
