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 ...
