I think spring has finally sprung and I'm so excited for the new season. I'm particularly looking forward to walking outside with my new puppy, Fozzie, and enjoying all those great familiar feelings that comes with spring. Longer sun-filled days and star-filled nights, budding trees and flowers, graduations, family get-togethers, and so much more!
Mom and I are going on a trip that has been a lifetime dream for both of us: we're going to Paris! We've talked about this for years and now we're finally going. Mom has us booked solid with museums and tours, and I'm looking forward to fresh croiss... Continue Reading

Daffodils are popping up, Easter is near, and the birds are chirping in the early morning. Spring is in the air. I love this time of year as the days are longer and the sun shines brighter.
I have had a busy few months. I just returned from the Housewares Show in Chicago and am excited about designing and creating for all of you. Mom and I saw a great show in NYC recently. I always love the buzz of the city.
I bid a sad farewell to my 13 year old Sake, a chow-shepherd mix. She has been a part of my life for so long that there is emptiness around the house... Continue Reading

Happy Valentine’s Day Temp-tations Family! Did you know that other than New Years Day, Valentine’s Day is the most celebrated holiday around the world? I am excited to be spending time with you on a day that celebrates love! I love sharing my collection with you and your family. I am constantly inspired by your ideas and am always striving to integrate them into all of my Temp-tations Designs.
I just returned from a 10-day design trip that was so exciting. I presented QVC the new patterns and designs for this year. Wow, is this going to be an exciting... Continue Reading

There is something about a New Year that I love. Hope, excitement, renewed promises and the feeling of a fresh start. I also enjoy the comfort of the winter season in Pennsylvania, filled with family, friends, comfort foods and movies on snow days. I am enjoying watching my new puppy, Fozzie, prance through the snow and explore a new season with my other dog Sake not far behind.
Another one of my favorite things about January is my annual trip with my BFF Amy. We get to catch up on her children’s comings and goings ,what’s hot ,what’s not for kids, an... Continue Reading

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the McConnell House……not a creature was stirring, except for Fozzie, my newly rescued Schnauzer-Yorkie mix. He prances out of his bed at 4:30 AM daily, ready to jingle-jangle and explore the world. He loves to mix it up with Sake (my 13 year old Chow-Shepherd Mix) It’s so wonderful how much joy a puppy brings to a home.
So, let me back up a bit and catch you up! I had a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends. Fozzie-La-La-La arrived shortly thereafter to ring in the... Continue Reading

I’m excited to be hosting the first Temp-tations blog chat tonight at 6:00 pm ET. My kitchen is filled with Temp-tations items. Here’s a photo from earlier this week with some delicious pound cake on my counter. From the oven to the table, I love that I’m able to cook and serve dishes in one great piece. It makes entertaining so much simpler and my guests are always so impressed! Looking forward to talking with you on Wednesday. In the meantime, I’d love to see the Temp-tations items in your home. What’s your favorite pattern? Do you have a favorite dish you... Continue Reading

Calling all Temp-tationistas (or just those that absolutely love to bake!):Fire up your ovens and your sweet tooth! Fall is on the way, which means baking, baking, and more baking. Speaking of baking, I'm thrilled to share with you an exciting TSV coming up this Wednesday, August 22. I absolutely love this set. The pieces included are what you'd typically only find in metal bakeware. They're the workhorses of your kitchen, and now they're available in beautiful stoneware and floral lace designs to boot! There's something so peaceful about a warm, homemade apple crisp with freshly picked apples... Continue Reading

Well, I think summer is finally in full swing—so glad "they" have decided that it's OK to wear white pants prior to Memorial Day. Makes me wonder, who are "they" anyway? I love everything about summertime: the weather, the sun, BBQs, and getting to slow down a bit and enjoy family and friends.
I really don't have big plans for the summer, I'm going to live through Mom...she's going on a bus tour at the end of June, starting in Denver, to see a lot of great historical sites. And now she told me she thinks she might go to Nova Scotia! She's amazing.
So in Temp-tations news, we have an ad... Continue Reading
