Movers and Shippers : August Morgan Bar Towels

Good Afternoon!

I am currently trapped in my house, as movers are packing and I must be around to answer questions.

Lucy is not amused

Tinkerbell, bless her, is clueless

We have laid in bed and watched hours of Law and Order and discussed my new needlepoint project.

It occured to us that I haven't yet blogged about my new August Morgan Bar Towels.  There are three styles that match August Morgan Cocktail Napkins.

The Bar Towels are a fabulous addition to any one's bar............

And pair beautifully with our cocktail napkins...................

Because Tinkerbell and I are feeling generous, we are offering free shipping on all August Morgan items.  Just type in the word MOVE at checkout.  You are welcome.  Now we must go back to our Law and Order marathon.

Have a great weekend!

High Ball Cocktail Napkins and the Animals of California

Dear Readers:

I have not blogged in MONTHS!  I apologize!  I have been rather busy.......remodeling a house,

children, children's sports,

throwing my daughter's Bat Mitzvah,

running August Morgan, children's sports, feeding children....... you get the picture.  So I am now trying to squeeze in a blog after Spring Break.  

Yes, I have returned from sunny California.  The Herschettes and I basically tagged along on my husband's business trip. The first stop was gorgeous Laguna Beach.

Whilst my husband worked, the kiddos and I played in the sun and surf.  My daughter and I paddle boarded in the ocean while my son took a surfing lesson.  I fell in the water and lost my Chanel sunglasses, but I also saw three dolphins. Yin and Yang,  or whatever.

Then we traversed on to LA.  I really do love that city.  So much to do!

Eat. Me with taco.

While I was at the resort pool in Laguna, a small child came up to me.  Blocking my direct sun, he informed me that there were sea lions sunning themselves on the beach.  I took him at his word and did not go see for myself as I had just consumed a concoction of watermelon juice and vodka and was not sure that my legs could work properly.

Well, I may have missed the sea lion, but I do have a a new cocktail napkin!

It's a seal, not a sea lion, but close enough.  What am I, a marine biologist?

The High Ball Cocktail Napkins come in the darling August Morgan gift box.

Have a great day!  I know I will because the children are in school!



Me with rabbits in Laguna.  They would arrive during cocktail hour.  Smart, smart animals.

Speaking of cocktails,  allow me to introduce to you my newest August Morgan cocktail napkin :

Do you LOVE August Morgan Tennis Cocktail Napkins?

Oh my goodness.  Enough with this Labor Day nonsense, the children need to back in school ASAP.  They are driving me nuts and are one of the main reasons why I drink.

Just kidding, of course.  But I am not one of those mothers who post on Facebook "Can't believe summer is over!  Went by too fast!  Not ready to send my babies back to school!!!!"

What?  My children need the structure of school and sports, or else they tend to trash the house, claw each others eyes out or whine about how bored they are.  This Labor Day weekend my husband and I drove kids around to movies, to the pool, to the mall.  We labored on labor day, sure enough.

I also have work to do, thank you very much.  My week at NYNOW was the best ever.  I sold many, many cocktail napkins to new and old stores!  I must ship ship ship!

The biggest hit of the August Morgan booth was the Overserved cocktail napkin.

A set of for for $32 may be purchased  here.  And, as per usual, they come in our darling August Morgan gift box.

I guess there are a lot of fun tennis players out there! There is actually a tennis class at my club this morning that I was considering taking.  But then I remembered all of the cocktail napkins I need to ship.  Plus my office has a big TV with unlimited Law and Order....

Over and Out!

Tinkerbell, We're Not In The Hamptons Anymore

Dear Readers,

For the last few weeks I have been at the beach on Long Island.  It has been a fabulous break from the wretched Texas heat.

From swimming to tennis, we are an active family and often mistaken for the Kennedy clan

This is the first year I don't feel like I have to be in the ocean lest an errant wave swoops over my kids.  They are great swimmers.  Plus the water is very cold.

But, alas, I miss my Dawgs!

Since I do not have a private jet (yet), Lucy and Tinkerbell are stuck in Texas.  But fear not as they are at a darling doggie hotel and share a "condo," where they can go in and out doors all day.  Also, my husband's assistant said she signed Tinky up for swim lessons and Lucy for massages!  Well okay then, the pups are set.

But today I am in Atlanta!  I am here to sell my products!  Come see me at the Diana White Showroom; Building 1, 10th Floor, Showroom C1.  Come on, you know you want to!


After that, I shall be back en Los Hamptons................

Eating and drinking!

Are You a Boar or a Rhino?

Good Monday to ya!

When I was first dating my husband we would go out all the time in New York and eat and drink.  And drink and drink. Soon after we were married I noticed he didn't have a cocktail upon coming home from work.  I found this odd on many levels, one being that when my father came home from work I would fix a "gin and tonky" for him.  Sweet memories.

I asked my husband why he wasn't drinking.   He said he wasn't a big drinker.  WHAT???  I pointed out that he drank all the time when we were dating.  He replied that he just drank to woo me.  I was shocked.  A friend said she would testify in a court of law if we ever divorced that I was wooed under false pretenses.

My husband was the inspiration for this napkin.

We just returned from Las Vegas last night and I was pleasantly surprised.  He brought his A game.  I was impressed.  Cocktails, wine with dinner, cocktails.  He even stayed up until four AM gambling, long after I had returned to bed.

I woke up to a sunny day and a thick wad of cash on the bedside table.  El Rey said he "and a toothless woman" played mega slots.  I had already spent the money in my mind at Hermes.

We flew home on a fancy jet with fellow fun Texans.  Before lift off we toasted one on other with beer and wine.  After thirty minutes, El Rey was fast asleep.  The party boy was turning back into a boar.

Which is fine by me, really.  Because I am not a boar.  I am a Rhino.

these may be purchased here.

And there's only room for one Rhino in a family.

Lest We Forget The Hipsters

Dear Readers :

Last I left you I swore off those online quizzes.  I slipped up.  I took one that measures how much of a hipster you are.  Answer : I am not a hipster.  Shocking but true.

I don't like crafted beer, beards, DIY projects, terrariums and the like but I don't hate them either.  And I respect people's rights to like those things.

One night in NYC many moons ago, my boyfriend at the time and I were walking from a dinner in Little Italy.  His friends were in town for the Hair Show.  They produced the black frocks you wear when at the salon.  In fact, earlier in the day I had been a last minute hair model on a revolving stage whilst getting my hair did.  But I digress.

Anyhoo, my boyfriend's friends treated us to a huge feast at an Italian restaurant complete with cannolis.  We couldn't eat another thing when they arrived, so they were wrapped up and forced on us in a to go box.

As we strolled down Mulberry Street we passed a scraggly young man.   We offered him our cannolis, which he accepted.  Seconds later he turned and said, "Hey, did you thing I was homeless?"  In fact we did.  Turns out he was not homeless he was a hipster.  Lesson learned, but cannolis shared.

I have created a napkin for those who think my napkins are too preppy for them :

Who doesn't love a mid century modern house cocktail napkin?

The set of four hand embroidered cocktail napkins come in the cute August Morgan box and retail for $32 and may be bought here.

"And just what are you, Missy" you may be thinking?  Answer : no clue.  Sometimes I feel preppy, sometimes I dress like a house bound invalid in a ratty Mexican dress (not in public).  If only there was a quiz to take online to tell me who I really am and what group I belong to!



*Although I am dressed like a Stepford Wife here I am rather liberal!
