Back In Business!

I'm back!!  Sorry to have been away so long...and my other blog is almost ready to launch...but that's not why I have been away.  Life just gets hectic sometimes.  I know EVERYONE can identify with that!!


Saw these pictures on Veranda this week and was carried away. Click the link and check them out. Love, love, LOVE the trellis as a design feature!

More soon...

Cheers!

New Blog On The Way!


No, I am not changing The Classic Preppy, but I will be posting a little less in the coming weeks, as I work on another blog that I will be writing over the next year.  It is a very personal blog and will hopefully be a great resource for folks who need encouragement and a little "pointing in the right direction."  More on this soon!!

In the meantime, just so you will have a little something to brighten your day, look at the ongoing fabulous (CLASSIC!) style of Carolina Herrera.  Elegance NEVER goes out of style!

Have a great day!  Cheers, Liz

Sunday Sermon: Understanding History

Hi, all!  It's been a busy week and I have actually been over at another blog posting there.  I have had so much fun...and have shot a variety of videos, including one with a dear friend, who is the author of a book on Crohn's Disease.  I will be able to share that video with you soon, as she will be in my kitchen making lactose-free yogurt.

Speaking of videos, I came across something very interesting this week.  It's not "preppy" at all...but I thought it was interesting enough to share.  I have a Bible app on my phone, where the actor Alexander Scourby (who is famous for having recorded the ENTIRE Bible) reads scripture as your phone tracks/highlights the verses.   It's a great app, and I was looking at some of the other options it had.  It linked me to the video below, which I found fascinating...especially considering what is going on in the world today.  I thought it would be a good thing to share with you on this glorious Sunday!

Blessings, Liz

Sunday Sermon: Encouraging Words

thencouragingword.org




One of the new features of The Classic Preppy is a Sunday post that is designed to encourage you!  There is no better way to launch this than to share with you the words of one of my favorite speakers, the Rev. Don Wilton.  Rev. Wilton's name might be familiar to those of you who love Billy Graham, for he serves as Dr. Graham's personal pastor.  Rev. Wilton pastors a church in Spartanburg, SC...so it is my hope that on one of my trips to Greenville, I can stop by and here him in person!

I encourage you to click here and listen to him encourage YOU!

Back To Business-Back To School-NYSD Reruns

Postcard of "vintage" Palm Beach...Memories!!
Good morning!  It's a beautiful day here in Virginia, I am back from my myriad of summer travels and Younger Daughter has just gone back to school.  It's her "last First Day," and although that is sad in some ways, it is gloriously exciting in others!  College time!!!

The New York Social Diary will be rerunning all the Ordway photos in the coming days, so be sure to check that out...and welcome to those of you visiting The Classic Preppy because you saw it mentioned in the opening article!  I love "connecting" people...and what a fun project that was...

More soon!

Cheers,
Liz

More soon.... In the meantime, enjoy your summer!!

Cheers,
Liz

The Classic Preppy Cooks

I am not known for my cooking...but I keep trying!  I'll be doing some cooking/baking videos with another blogger at the end of the summer, so I thought I'd shoot some footage of one of tonight's dishes with my iPhone.  Turned out ok! Here's the recipe (from The Food Network)! Enjoy!!
