Wednesday Wonders *

So far the blog is shaping up to be like this:

Madras Mondays:  A patchwork of topics....Can and will write on a variety of things.

"Think Pink" Tuesdays :  One of my favorite colors and all kinds of fun things to write about!

Wednesday Wonders: This day might be things that fascinate me...or that I hope will fascinate you...OR.....things I am wondering about and want your input on.  Looks like giveaways are popular on preppy blogs, so when I do one, we will start it on a Wednesday (like today!!).

Traditional Thursday....or Throwback Thursday: I think it will be fun to write more about "Miss Betty" as well as growing up in the "Classic Preppy" way, as well as commenting on things that I have in my life that I consider fabulous traditions and that are definitely throwbacks to an earlier time.  It is on Thursdays that I will most likely write about my time at Tiffany & Co., as well as share some interesting bits of Tiffany history.  (Part of my job for TCO, early on, was to travel around lecturing on "The Tiffany Touch," which was the history of the company.)

Friday Finds: Interesting websites, companies, stores etc.....or even one incredible item I found someplace, that you might find interesting, too!

Saturday and SundayWho knows?  We'll leave them open for now....but I am sure there will be plenty to write about!  Some weekends I will be able to post and some not.  Also, some days may have more than one post....the topic for that day plus something else that is so interesting it simply cannot wait for a post of its own (like the Preppy Song video)!!

* Now...for our first giveaway.  We'll start small and simple! 

I love, love, love the Lilly Pulitzer shift eyeglass case....perfect for those drugstore readers we all like or even a small pair of sunglasses.  We will start the giveaway today and end it on Sunday (April 18th).  Just leave a comment on this post with your guess of how many miles I drove on my little Spring Break "jaunt" to Charleston.  Here's a hint......I did not take a direct route, and over the course of six days I was in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.  Whoever guesses the closest to the actual round trip mileage wins the eyeglass case!!  Tell your friends, too....All are welcome here at .......  Cheers!


  1. What cute ideas for days! My guess is 1300 miles. I really have no idea but I'll throw it out!

  3. Okay I guess 1025 miles.
