Growing Plants in Glass Bottles

Years ago I worked with a gentleman whose office was virtually overtaken with vines. He had plants EVERYWHERE - but not a pot in sight! His plants were all healthy and well rooted in vases.

Fast forward to today and my kitchen windowsill and the shelf in my bathroom and you'll see that I now have a few plants growing in water of my own!

Fall Fashion Pick #2 :: Comfy Loafers


Great news! My second Fall Fashion Pick is as cozy and fabulous as my first Fall Fashion Pick! The LOAFER has been brought back in a big way - and it's menswear redefined.

Loafers are all over in fall fashion, and I'm thrilled to see a trend that us ladies of a certain age can totally get behind.

Another bonus, for my sisters, is that a solid loafer can hold an orthotic insert!
