A valentine idea

Looking for a unique gift? Stop by Little Brook Gallery in the Colonial Shopping Plaza this weekend and you can pick up a piece of locally made art for your sweetie. Alison Vernon will have some new artwork, and there will be pottery by Cindy Best, jewelry by Martha Mae Emerson, and fabric art by Kim Preston, to name a few. I always find something I can’t live without at Alison’s gallery, so I bet you will, too. She’s open both Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You must meet her

Joan Wamsley is one of my favorite people right now. $200 suit jacket that I know I should be wearing but I am not – now tailored to fit. Jeans that look great on the hips and legs, but show a bit of plumber crack every time I bend over – now taken in at the waist. She’s saving my wardrobe and if you haven’t met her, I suggest you do. She’s Tailorjoan, located next to Hubert’s in New London. Read more about her in the spring 2010 issue of Kearsarge Magazine, on stands next week.

I’m back!

Technology, technology – it is so hard to keep up. First there’s twitter – but I love to write (and write and write) so I find it difficult to keep it to one interesting (or funny) sentence. Then at some point over Christmas I started wasting some major time with Facebook. First I posted my own profile, then I posted a profile for a new magazine that will be coming out in April. Turns out I get some pretty great feedback from readers on Facebook – I’ve been asking them some questions to help me determine what articles would be of interest. Anyhoo, the blog fell by the wayside but I’m back and raring to go for 2010. Get ready!
