His wall of windows overlooked the exact route for the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade.  The view was electric with energy!  George was so gracious to walk me through his entire line from th...

Drinks and Dessert Station - starring my new Keurig 2.0!

Last Reply by Sandra272 1416159929.173 | Started by Albany Irvin in Coffee Talk, Hosts & Personalities, TSV Talk

Last week, I held a little Birthday gathering for Lisa Robertson.  Most of these folks had never been to my house; so of course I cleaned as if Scarlett was coming for inspection.    Next up was transforming my circus of a home into a place for an adult birthday party.  My hope was that I would be able to create a place that everyone would mingle and visit.  I was shooting for a “cozy” ambiance; not formal--- I’m definitely allergic to formal!   Since it was more of a drop in event that was heavy on the hor'deurves instead of a sit down dinner...

Happy Birthday Lisa!!!

Happy birthday, my friend. I don't even know where to start – you are such an amazing woman. Smart, kind, funny, tenacious, loyal & beautiful. From the moment we met, you embraced me. You were straightforward, honest, and willing to share. Qualities that many women do not often share with one another. I was able to learn from you and grow with you here at the Q.  Here we are on the set:  In two of the many cars we traveled to QVC events in: (one with Courtney)   At those New York fashion events:    And other Q Events:  (one with Rac...

The Family that PLAYS Together……………………………

Last Reply by alert 1411241610.39 | Started by Albany Irvin in The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice

If you watch me at all on the Q, I am sure you have heard me say “The family that prays together, stays together.”  I believe that very strongly and it is something that my family and I take very seriously.  The other side of that, I realized one day was that “The family that PLAYS together – makes amazing memories and has a boatload of fun along the way!!!!”  I am a big proponent of having the littles “unplug” from video games and TV – and I find that the toys that they love the most were purchased right here at QVC.   ...
