Happy Valentines Day from the bottom of my heart!
Kristen Cassie and Amy Lipnis of Moon Canyon Design have re-imagined the ubiquitous Christmas wreath and all the trimmings. Using traditional and unexpected evergreen elements, these botanical masterminds will create custom pieces for your home. Just send photos of areas you’d like to adorn, door, gates or mantles, and wait to see what magic they make. You can also find the wreaths “to go” at Nicky Keyhoe on Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles.

This past week we’ve been bombarded with 24-hour shopping Blitzkriegs and in-your-face consumerism. Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday…. in retaliation – I am declaring Want-Not Wednesday. I’ve stuff to last me a lifetime and back, most of us do… so thought it would nice to spend a day reflecting on what really gets us through our days. A view, a memory, an unexpected smile or a random act of kindness (like when the Delta Rep waived the change fee when I realized I had booked my son’s Thanksgiving ticket a week too early). Before the Season overtakes us, step back, play a game of cards, take a walk, sit on a rock, defer a parking spot, and just breathe – we all have enough.
