Ode to the Beach

We celebrate the beach in Naples and art imitates life at GARDNER COLBY GALLERY where I found paintings that bring the celebration into your home.

Eclectic Wonderland

I’m always looking for interesting finishing touches to my home decor.  I like things that inspire a comment, awe, or a giggle.  And  I love things that don’t necessarily jive but somehow look good together.  One of my very favorite places to look for such things is EDWARD GARY DESIGN.  I recommend going in with a photo of the space and let owner and designer Gary Shanabarger help you.  His enthusiasm is infectious and he will help you find the perfect item!

Benefitting FRIENDS OF FOSTER CHILDREN

WILLIAM C. HUFF COMPANIES and STORM FORCE HURRICANE PROTECTION are large supporters of the event, which raised more than $250,000 last year.  Over 500 children in Collier County are part of the foster care system and most do not have the resources to do what our children can do.  FRIENDS OF FOSTER CHILDREN provides summer camps, holiday gifts and money for extra-curricular activities. They also provide tutoring and mentoring services.

Tickets are still available but going fast!  Learn more about the event at www.friendsoffosterchildren.net and join our beloved TSG Naples businesses for the festivities!

April Loves

1Flower

April is one of my favorite months in Naples between friends and family visiting, the town a buzz, everything blooming and perfect weather.  Here are just a few of the things I love about April …

APRIL BLOG

 

1. BLEU PROVENCE serves LUNCH now.  Yes, lunch!   It’s a great spot to set outside to enjoy the weather with great food and a glass of wine.
2. My yard is colorful with my hibiscus plants in bloom!  FOOD & THOUGHT has a big selection of flowers and plants and you can pick up your copy of TSG Naples when while you are there.
3. Manolo Blahnik has taken their classic pump and brightened it up with this gorg peach color at MARISSA COLLECTIONS.  They have mint color too!
4. Lining the walls of BAY DESIGN STORE are gorgeous prints for any spot in your home.  I spotted this one while I was there the other day and I really love … it’s fabric under glass.
5. PIERRE&HARRY has moved into their new location on 13th Ave South just off Third Street South.  Their new space shows off their pearl and gem jewels brilliantly!
6. I ospreys love using channel markers for their nests.  You can see them along the I spotted one recently with 3 (big!) babies in it!
7. SHANNON GREEN COLLECTION has a beautiful new line of handmade woven jewelry from Rome, Italy.  I’ll feature it more on the blog this week!
