Busy, Busy, Busy!

Friends, it has been a fast-paced and fun-filled fall season!

At the end of September Muffy Writes A Note was featured in the 2011 News & Documentary Emmy Awards Official Gift Bag - and as if that wasn't exciting enough, we were also invited to attend the Emmy Awards Show in New York and were able to distribte gift bags after the show! 
Attendees received our Under The Sea note cards - you can check them out here:

In October one of our newer collections, Bitsy, was featured by Practical Horseman Magazine as a hot holiday gift.  We are enjoying the increasing trend of equine accents in paper goods, clothing & accessories and think that our Bitsy Calling Cards, Note Cards and Invitations are a great holiday gift idea for the riders and horse-lovers in your life.

And the most recent news.....

Livin' the Dream!

Ok, so I didn't ever exactly dream of driving a minivan. (Did anyone??)
However, with a multitude of practices, playdates and preschools near and far to get to on a daily basis, a vehicle that opens and closes it's own doors while entertaining four adorable mini-Wellingtons is a must. Take this as a very quiet shout-out to all you closeted minivan fans - I'm your people.
Anyhoo, how perfect are these darling roadie cups my dear friend Lee sent to me?!
Now if I could only get a sippy-cup lid to fit them....  Imagine the hidden possibilities!
Thanks, Lee!

kiss kiss, Muffy

Muffy's Memorial Day Weekend

Friends, I am so ready for this Memorial Day weekend!  Nothing screams "Summer is here!" louder than a weekend at the beach complete with a parade in town, a crab feast, sailboat rides and cocktails at sunset.  The Wellington clan's plan includes all these and perhaps a heated croquet match to boot!
I can't wait to hear all about your weekend festivities!!

A whale of a tale ...

As I was waiting for my friend Caroline to pick me up for the evening festivities,
I was doing a bit of shopping on the web 
and came across this Betti Terrell Dress (for Coco, of course) ...

Betti Terrell Girls Sleeveless Pink Seersucker Dress -

and between the pink seersucker and smocked whales 
I couldn't help envisioning an adorable pink and green whale party.

Pink Babe Invitation with Whale Motif

And then I thought, wouldn't a whaling theme dinner be great, 
with a tablescape full of scrimshaw and Nantucket baskets, 

Tim Parsons' Scrimshaw Piece from

Nantucket Basket from

so thought I must have blue and other colors ... 
and other pieces for the inevitable follow ups ...

Blue Babe Correspondence Card with Whale Motif

Green Babe Calling Card with Whale Motif
Of course, now I want it in other motifs (soon to come!!), 
and so begins my newest collection - Babe. 
Classic and preppy and perfect for any age!

A Sticky Situation

We now offer stickers!
The crab and alligator are the first ones up on - more styles to come very soon!

These are great to have on hand to stick on a bottle of wine for a party, affix to a dish you're
 delivering to a neighbor or seal up goodie bags for children's parties.
So fun!

PINK ALERT - Pantone announces 2011 Color of the Year

Hip hip hooray for Pantone's choice for Color of the Year - Honeysuckle pink! They describe it as ...

A Color for All Seasons
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.

While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life. For more visit Pantone's website.

Of course, I totally agree and am humming "Think Pink" a la Kay Thompson in Funny Face, as I write. Check out some of my current favorite pink products ...

Trina Turk Pillows from Neiman Marcus
Beverage Tub from The Macbeth Collection
Clipper Calling Card from Muffy Writes A Note

The Cane Event Invitation from Muffy Writes A Note
Pink Polka Dot Sleep Socks from Susan G. Komen online shop

Can't wait to see what other goodies are to come!

Ahoy Mates!

I'm so excited to have found Nautical by Nature blog by Kate,
filled with anything shore-inspired a girl could want.
Now, I can't stop thinking of the warmer days ahead
and summer on the boat.

Here's how my daydream is going.....

I grab my bag...
and a couple of the kids (dressed appropriately, of course!)...

and we're off!

SOS!! We need refreshments! 
No worries, I always roll with a bottle of Chardonnay.
Check out my glass.

And I always use a coaster!
When it gets chilly we wrap up in a cozy blanket.

Ahhh.  I can't wait for summer!!!!

Thanks, Kate!!

Hud's Duds

Coco has been up to her old tricks lately and sweet little Hudson has been a frequent victim.
At least she didn't find my lipstick and mascara this time!
