I remember so many times when our four kids were a bit younger and I couldn’t decide what to do. Here's one scenario: it was my day off, two were in school, one had morning preschool and one was at home, and she would finally go down for a morning nap. My dilemma? Do I take the hour to lie down myself and rest since I was so tired, or should I get things done which were staring me in the face, i.e. dishes, bills, laundry, school papers which needed to be filled out, etc!
I knew I would feel better about myself if I got the chores done, but then I would be tired all day and probably impa... Continue Reading

We've had a few days of absolutely gorgeous weather, and the first thing I love to do is open the windows and let the fresh air in! It's the best scent! So, if you are able to join us tomorrow, Wednesday, May 8th, we invite you to our "Summer Open House". We will celebrate ALL day and show you how to get your home ready for entertaining, cooking, decorating all while putting you in a "summer state of mind"!
I love to entertain in the summer by feeding people out on the deck or on the back patio, but I always feel like I'm missing that 'helping hand' of a place to put everything. If that... Continue Reading

My husband, Mark, and I are not coffee drinkers. We love the smell, but it’s just not our ‘cup of tea’! So, I thought a Keurig coffee brewer was for everyone else … but us. Wrong! After presenting it to our QVC viewers a few times, I had a dinner party and needed to make coffee in our old coffee brewer. I had only used it a few times over the years for company. I really did not know just how much coffee grounds to use for the amount of water I had and it wasn't much fun dealing with the messy filter, etc. Ultimately, not only was I very unsure of what I was doing, but ...

Would you like to be able to get your feet up, feel weightless, feel your muscle tension and stress go out of your toes and feel the blood returning to your feet after standing all day? Does your back need some time off? Me, too! That's why Mark and I purchased two Bliss Hammocks from QVC last spring after I had the opportunity to try them at work. They amazed me!
It's one of those life enhancing experiences, but on an everyday basis! I can't begin to tell you how much better I feel after being able to 'float' in this 'zero gravity' chair we offer! I loved it so much out on our deck... Continue Reading

Set yourself up to succeed this year in cooking for you and your family with Technique's new set of ColorSmart cookware!

I had the privilege of attending Nolan Miller's memorial service on November 15th in Los Angeles. Even though he passed away in June, a service was not held until just recently. Of course, I had to be there!! I worked with Nolan for twenty years and loved him as one of my dearest friends!
There were several celebrities there who Nolan had designed gowns and clothes for, such as Joan Collins, Jackie Collins, Joan Van Ark, Michelle Lee and Stephanie Beecham. The "Dynasty" and "Knot's Landing" ladies were well represented. People like Sophia Loren, Linda Evans and Ann Margret were unable to atte... Continue Reading

One of my passions is decorating with things made of mosaic glass. Below is a picture of one of my favorite mosaic vases. I have a larger Flameless candle inside it, so the light glows through the many pieces of glass. Unfortunately this vase is not avail on QVC, but Valerie Parr Hill has a few available. This year I placed three Candle Impressions candles in front of the mosaic vase and I was really pleased with the added ambiance and color. The three candles are a part of a set of nine, which will be tomorrow's Today's Special Value, tonight at midnight! (Tuesday into Wednesday)How do you li... Continue Reading

As most of you know, Temp-tations is one of my favorite brands on QVC. I use it almost daily and just love the Old World pattern in blue. Here is a picture of a part of my collection in my cupboard.
A few months ago I was on the air with Temp-tations melamine tableware and the Technical Director told me to kick the stack of dishes, because they were virtually unbreakable and the color I kicked had sold out. I was a little apprehensive and couldn’t believe what I was hearing, but I kicked that stack of dishes as suggested. It was amazing; none of the dishes broke and it made for lots o...

What has 10 speeds, 300 watts of power, comes in a wide variety of colors to match almost any kitchen décor and will be offered on SIX Easy Payments? You guessed it ….. QVC’s latest and most efficient KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
I have been a proud owner of my KitchenAid Mixer for about 12 years. It is still going strong and works just as beautifully today as it did all those years ago it first came through my door.
