Ted’s Tip No. 200

On this the 5th anniversary of the release of my book Style & Simplicity, as well as the 200th ‘Ted’s Tip’ written every Monday on my daily blog post. I love how the two lined right up, falling on the same day! My tip today is super simple. Be kind. Show empathy. Treat people as you would like to be treated. It all comes down to loving one another.

In honor of the day I would love to give away 5 of my books along with some other Watson Kennedy treats. It will be 5 parcels filled with goodness. Leave a comment on what your favorite act of kindness is that you like to share. Next Monday I will combine all the names and draw the 5 winning folks. There is no limit to how many times you can enter. I want to be overwhelmed by the sharing of your acts of kindness. Much, much love to you all, Ted

Bartlett House Jams at Watson Kennedy

Super excited to have these awesome jams from our beloved Bartlett House in Ghent on the way, arriving next week. The flavor combinations out of this world. The packaging making it an amazing host/hostess gift or a lovely treat for Mother’s Day.



 

 

A Favorite Six

With Spring here, a favorite grouping of six vignettes or items that caught my eye on some of these beautiful days. Brighter, vibrant tones are heading to the top of the list. Happy Wednesday!



 

 

The Coolest Pitcher

Just In, the coolest frog pitcher. Whimsical in every way. We carried these years ago but then the supplier stopped importing them. Fast forward to now and they are once again gracing our shelves. So fun I can hardly stand it!



 

 

New Works by John Derian at Watson Kennedy

Just In, a fresh batch of stunningly beautiful John Derian decoupaged plates & paperweights arrived the other day. We have carried his work almost since the day we opened and it still brings a thrill to see new designs every time an order arrives. They blur the line between vintage and modern, working in just about every environment. The images John finds transports you to a happy place. Also in this order which excites me to no end, a set of playing cards. Oh my, the possibilities are endless with these. For sure as a deck of cards, but the options for creative projects makes me dizzy with happiness.



 

 

Maison Louis Marie Perfume Oil at WK

Just In, perfume oil by Maison Louis Marie is the last addition to our scent family at Watson Kennedy. The rollerball bottle fit neatly in your purse or valise for a little mid-day refresh. Make the sweetest little thoughtful, stylish, yummy smelling gifts.



 

 

My Favorite Things Today

All sorts of new fun things have been arriving from all the buying we have been doing over the last few months. I always love seeing goods get worked in to existing displays finding a happy home. Here is what caught my eye the most this round.



 

 

A Green, Green Shop Table

Yesterday was a full day of display, along with redoing the dining table vignette at the back of the Home store. How surprising, green has been on my mind! With the official start of Spring next week as well as St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, I just decided to run with it. Oh, and those geranium places. They had quite a bit to do with it, as I have been dying to play with them since they came in. The green dotted tablecloth is actually a big roll of wrapping paper I adore. Once that was put into place everything else came together. The potted Livia Cetti geranium just had to be the centerpiece. Dinner is served!
