Garden Season 2014 is in full swing! That means the boys are back ...Roberta’s Unique Gardens Boys, that is!
Four generations and over 50 years!
Their greenhouses are only about an hour away from Indianapolis. So, while I was home last May, I asked Eric if my family (all avid gardeners) and I could take a tour of Roberta’s. He said, “Sure! Come on down!” I took some pictures because I thought you might want to experience Roberta’s, too!
We (my mom, Dad, Sister Susie, Isabella & I) arrived mid-morning to a nice welcome... Continue Reading

My Friend, Kristen (20), my daughter (4-1/2), and I (49) thought it would be fun to style the DNC “How Smooth” TSV Jean in dark indigo to see what 3 generations of fashion-sense would look like. Actually, we’re not all that different, especially when it comes to statement pieces.
I decided on a casual, yet dressy look for the jeans. The snowy white DNC cascade open cardigan with the Nordic border felt right for this time of year. I didn’t want to take anything away from the beautiful border of the cardi; so, I chose the ivory shell with a soft neckl... Continue Reading

Oh what a beautiful gem! You MIGHT hear this stone referred to as an “Emerald by day and Ruby by night”. That’s because the finest quality of these gemstones displays a phenomenon called, “color-change”. When you view this member of the Chrysoberyl family, the actual colors that are seen will vary. Color can shift from a blue-green to a purplish violet. The finest flaunts a grass green in daylight. But place it near the romance of candlelight, and its passion burns to a raspberry red. There are only a handful of oth... Continue Reading

Pre-Isabella, plans for the holidays were a no-brainer. We either spent Christmas with my family in Indiana or my husbands in Rhode Island. Easy breezy! I love the hustle and bustle of family tradition: church on Christmas Eve (my favorite service of the year), opening presents with all the kiddos, eating the yummy dinners, and playing games on Christmas Day. Enter Izzy.
I honestly thought we would continue doing things as we always had. But after Isabella’s second Christmas, I realized I wanted to us to have Christmas at home. I wanted her to p... Continue Reading

Hard times, bad breaks, illness, and heartache suck! (Sorry to be so crude, but there isn’t a more appropriate word, in my opinion.) I’m not sure I’ll ever quite understand the bad things that happen to us. As I get older, I realize the times that I have, literally & figuratively survived, have made me who I am. More importantly, the journey through the tough times has given me character, compassion, strength, perseverance, hope and a grateful heart!
Recently, I had the opportunity to serve as a Breakout Session Host at the PA Women&rs... Continue Reading

Strange to think my tumor was removed during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As tough as it to look back on this month 4 years ago, what a joyous month it has become! I am privileged to hear the stories of the warriors who have fought (and are fighting) against this dreadful disease. Even though October is coming to an end, our fight continues! Please keep posting your stories and words of encouragement for others on my FB Page (Nancy Hornback QVC). It could save a life!
As you read Stacey’s journey, please notice the theme that runs through each of th... Continue Reading

I met Christy at Disney. We were chosen to be a part of the “Hoop Dee Doo Review” cast and trained together in 1998. I found her to be talented, funny, kind, warm, silly, generous and spunky! Needless to say, we became instant friends. Our friends definitely come into our lives for a reason, even if for a season. (Thankfully, it’s been many seasons for us).
I had moved on from Disney to NYC when I got the call from Christy. She had been diagnosed with DCIS. Since my Dad, brother, sister and brother-in-law are doctors who ... Continue Reading

Eva is a part of my team. I recently found out that she, too, has been personally touched by breast cancer. Her foreword & story is poignant for those of you who were diagnosed with “pre-cancerous” cells/cysts. Here is the next installment in my blog series, “Breast Cancer Survivors: The Power of Sharing” - Eva’s Story
Eva's lil' pumpkins - Matthew & Daniel
Eva: I started my story so many times and erased what I wrote because I didn’t feel worthy (if you could call it that). I haven’t gone through as much as other women. I... Continue Reading

We often think about breast cancer as a disease that affects women over 40. How could a woman get breast cancer earlier? Surely not - especially since we’re taught to have our baseline mammogram at age 40. In the next installment of "Breast Cancer Survivors: The Power of Sharing", QVC’s own dear, sweet, Amy, was diagnosed (much like me) within days of her coming to Q. Unlike me, she was and is 26. Amy is in the midst of her battle.
Q: How long ago did you learn you had breast cancer?
A: March 2013
Q: What type of breast ca... Continue Reading

Laura Ferguson bravely shared her story as she was battling her second round of breast cancer. We wanted to check in and see how she was doing. Here is an update from our dear friend.
Pictured here with her friend, Erin, on the right.
Q: How long are you cancer-free?
A: I don’t actually keep track anymore. I was so close to my 5 year mark last time around that I feel a little superstitious keeping track. May 8th was technically my one year cancer free.
Q: What type of breast cancer and at what stage were you diagnosed?
A: M... Continue Reading
