Seven Years On

Today is the 7th anniversary of the day I started The Classic Preppy... My, how time flies!!!

It's funny, but I started The Classic Preppy for a reason that has yet to be put into play, but I am going to write more about that when I have more time. Presently, Dear Husband's cancer situation has all my attention.

So, while you're waiting, please pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea, sit back and relax, and watch the most amazing video on stationery/writing notes from my friend, Holly Holden!

Manners matter!!! Love, Liz

Busy, Busy, Busy!

What a horrible blogger I have turned out to be! I was so busy this week that I neglected to keep my promise to blog every day... my apologies!!

Where have I been? On Instagram, giving away books.... On Twitter, connecting with my followers and hosting book giveaways (Kindle) and finishing the last of my downsizing. My house project to-do list has been moved to Priority #1, and things are moving along quickly. I hadn't realized how much I had slowed my pace after our move and the first flurry of activity. I like this new pace much better, because it has really energized me! Things are getting done and everything is looking great!!

So now, as things come together and I start to have a little more time, I can get back to the blog. Today I want to introduce you to my friend Holly Holden's new YouTube Channel. You will be hooked!! (Holly's book, The Pretty and Proper Living Room, is one of my favorites. It is the Book of the Month on The Classic Preppy for March, too.)

March Madness

It's been March Madness around more ways than one! I've been on Instagram and Twitter and have greatly neglected the apologies for that. (Hope you are following me on Instagram...that's where the book giveaways are, including this signed one from my New York Social Diary friend, Liz Smith.)

As for the blog... all is not lost! I have some AMAZING things to tell look for posts every day next week and get ready to get excited!!! (How about a very special and personal visit with Lady Carnarvon at Highclere Castle...or Downton Abbey as it's known to most of us? My friend, Holly, is going to take you there...)

Have a great weekend and check back on Monday for more! We are going to talk houses, decorating, jewelry and spring!!
