Family Circle is the latest publication to feature me among a Farm Fresh entry in its November 1's "Pro Pointer's" corner. I'm so pleased that they also selected to show one of my favorite images from the book: a gorgeous vignette from the downtown home of Carl & Co.'s Mark Ciolli. My mouth starts to water as I just look at the cover of the magazine: -- a jack-o'-lantern fashioned out of orange and brown M&Ms. Yum!
Also very sweet was a photo my friends on Long Island sent me from a Barnes & Noble in Boston. Wherever they travel, they seem to be on a mission to locate The Find and place it in a prominent spot among all the other home and design books! If you do the same, take a picture, send it to me and I'll share your kind gesture as well.
If you happen to have your own copy of The Find and I haven't signed it for you, then e-mail me your mailing address, I will send you a plate with a personalized message that you can affix into your book. That is when they arrive....ahem.....
On a final note, I received a plea from Ms Shopping Go Lightly of The Thrifty Chicks who is up for the honor of becoming the Next Green Girl over at Project Green Search. Go vote for her by following the link from her blog.
As simple as it sounds, I feel that in these unsettled times, the moment has clearly arrived for us go out of our ways to help each other. Just like I believe in thrift karma -- not being greedy, remaining respectful of vendors' wares, not going into debt shopping and being patient for the just the right, affordable find -- good human karma always pays off -- and how!
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
