Well Traveled Dahlias

September 18, 2020

Flower Friday all about a bunch of well traveled dahlias that started at the Market shop, hopped on a ferry for a week-end of island fun, hopped on that ferry back into the city, and are now gracing us with their beauty at the end of the dining table for visual enjoyment throughout the week. Living in a heavy Tiffany Atlas ice bucket arranged sort of how I found them in their bucket at the flower stall when first spotting them. We are getting every ounce of enjoyment from these simple beauties. Have a divine week-end darlings. Our friend Joanne in Boston often writes that term of endearment, which I quite like. In this day and age, any thoughtful sweet sentiment gladly accepted. For our bi-monthly WK newsletter the other day, I wrote, ‘Be well. Stay safe. Spread love.’ I’m sticking with love. I am convinced that is going to get us headed in the right direction. X, T

Italian Cotton Face Masks at WK

September 17, 2020

Just In, a restock of our beyond lovely hand-embroidered Italian cotton face masks. Plus the solid color versions too. These have been such a major hit. As our mask wardrobes grow, finding comfortable versions becomes paramount. If it is super stylish, even better. I find these make thoughtful gifts, as well.

Julia Reed’s Hot Cheese Olives

September 16, 2020

Well, let’s just say I got quite a few request yesterday for Julia’s ‘Hot Cheese Olives’ recipe. They are one seriously savory bite. We swapped out the pimento-stuffed olives for Italian Castelvetrano olives. We are not big pimento fans. Just make sure they are pitted! Really any pitted olive you like will do. We cut the below original recipe in half as there were just three of us. But looking back, that was silly. We easily could have polished off the full batch. I mean, these are truly awesome. They are our Wine & Dine Wednesday treat for the week. Enjoy!

Ted’s Tip No. 269

September 14, 2020

Don’t forget to scan the produce aisle when grocery shopping for a big hit of pretty in place of flowers. Kale, in particular, a fab fill-in when blooms are not exciting you or readily available.
