The word on the street is that we've been busy making our showrooms sparkle with the new spring collections. Color For sure.  Gorgeous new Ultrasuede ® Most definitely.  Inspiring new fabrics Yes indeed.  Eco-friendly furniture You mean, green Absolutely! Oh, and if you get a chance this weekend, stop by the  Acton store  where we're having a  "pop-up" sale  all weekend long. You'll find floor samples, discontinued styles and gently-used showroom pieces all at super prices!   Being an Irish gal, I cannot pass up the chance to "cut and copy" one of my favorite lines from the famous blessing..."May the sun shine warm upon your face...". Fitting on a sunny day like today. Happy St. Patty's Day! ...

Spring is in the air, right As I look out of my office window at the snow coming down in droves it's hard to imagine that spring is near. But, alas, there are signs to convince me to keep the faith.   Last week I got the opportunity to go to Las Vegas and take a sneak peak at the latest collections from  Stressless by Ekornes. Never heard ofStressless They only make the most comfortable recliner in the world. In fact, their tagline is "The Innovators of Comfort" and they live up to it for sure! Ok, enough, you get it. I love  Stressless! Anyway...when you get to preview "Spring Collections" of furniture lines, that's a sign. Another sign When the good ...

The Dreaded Snow! Code Red. It's official "“ we're under attack. Everyone knows the drill"¦run, hide, the snow is coming! Ok, call me crazy, but I believe we're over-reacting just a little bit. Agree There is a slight mention that snow may be coming, not totally confirmed, but the TV news stations are warning us that maybe, just maybe, we might get an inch, possibly several, could get nothing or we'll have a complete white-out. Everyone panics. Ok, so last week a lot of the country did experience some weather that was clearly unheard of in those parts, so I guess they had something to crow about. Technically, we could drop the alert levels, since DC was closed down for a week ...

I know, it's a Hallmark holiday...that has the power of throwing people into a dark depression, or better yet, just a night on the couch with a pint of Haagen-dazs ® watching a Lifetime movie about betrayal and revenge. Valentine's Day comes only once a year, but yet it seems to creep up on us slowly and methodically, not to mention, it lasts far longer than it needs to. What's interesting is that it's not just my single friends that are annoyed by all the love in the air, but my married friends complain too. "He didn't get me flowers!", "We had no reservations!", "She didn't book a babysitter!", "Why did he buy me chocolates when he knows I'm on ...

I admit it. I didn't watch a second of the Superbowl. Don't get me wrong; I had every intention of watching the game. In fact, all throughout Sunday I was day-dreaming of the chips and dip, the guacamole, the chili, the cold beer, and oh, yes, the game. I have relatives in New Orleans...you know, the kind of relatives you really adore So, of course, I was rooting for those Saints. I was looking forward to a crazy night of eating, drinking and screaming my head off to support the Saints! About 5pm I got a text reminding me I was invited, and expected, at a friends house for a dinner party. Whoops! There goes the game. Immediately I sadly said ...

Many of you are acquainted with the Queen Bee, right So tomorrow is the big day for the Queen Bee's niece Amy. She and her beau Mike, are tying the knot in Jamaica and we couldn't be happier for them! If anyone knows Amy, you know that she can light up a room as soon as she's even in the  vicinity of that room! Amy is famous for her huge smile and big heart. Mike is a doll as well so everyone is super excited for the big event. Of course, they left us here in Boston, a.k.a. Antarctica, to fly South to Jamaica for the big event...I guess we can forgive them for that. I mean, they couldn't really send the ...

Haven't seen the latest Buzz from the Queen Bee Check it out. January Buzz Well, it's that time of the year, once again, when we all make or break our "New Year's Resolutions". I don't think I'm wrong in saying that most of us could not wait to kick "˜'09" out the door (and give it a good, swift kick in the behind at the same time!) I wonder if there is any significant meaning that it all came down at the end of the first decade of the 21st century. Hmm. Anyway, let's not go down that path with those nuts who read meaning into apocalyptic proportions; let's just stick to the facts about New Year's. Ok, number one resolution, I'm sure ...
