My Chronicles

So these are stories of life, according to me.   I want to emphasize the word “stories.”   I am not a writer, but a storyteller.  I’m not grammatically correct and I think I might have flunked that part in school that had something to do with diagramming sentences.  I’m still not sure what all that diagramming was about….

Anyway, some of my stories are from right here on the farm, while others might be while I am on the road traveling.  I might tell stories about our bath & body business, or I might reflect back to something silly twenty years ago.  My chronicles are kind of like the story of my life so far – it’s all over the place…

    An Accidental Meeting

    Driving up to QVC Studios on 5/18/15.  First Time.    So as I am sitting here watching QVC, I am a little bummed that I was delayed in making a decision to order an Isaac Mizrahi moto jacket.  Just as I clicked 'submit order' I [...]

    Insomnia, Earrings, and QVC!

    There has been a joke inside my family for years anytime one of them asks me where I got something new, and there is usually a typical response before I speak:  "Oh don't tell me - QVC!" I have been a QVC shopper for years.  It all started [...]

    And so the legend goes…

    I have always been enthralled with hummingbirds.  My mother would always hang up feeders when I was a child, so I guess it was only natural when I flew the nest and set up my own housekeeping that I, too, would do the same.   (But as a [...]

    Two Orchids and a City

    Whew! Are we ever tired…. But - a good kind of tired.  We just got back from the Home & Gift Show in Dallas at the World Trade Center.  It was a great show for us and we made many new friends and made some wonderful contacts. [...]

    Many of you have been asking about facial moisturizers and if we will ever be developing any skin care products in addition to our body care products.  If you had asked me this six months ago I would have told you that our focus is body care. [...]

    You know you're from a small town when…

    It is days like today when I realize how nice it is to be living in a small town.  It is two days before Thanksgiving and I had to "go to town" for errands.  So before I go any further let me say how much I love saying "going to town." [...]
