Bunting e rev

It’s NEW!

I’m adding a new “column ” to the blog. I’ve given this a lot of thought as to how I want to present it, what to present to you, how often, and how to best work the graphics.

I want to let you share some of the everyday things I like and use and recommend. These will be products that you can buy, things that you may have around your house that you haven’t given much thought to, or even places to go. The field is wide open.  If you have suggestions, please let me know! This is all meant to be FUN.

Of course, half the problem was coming up with just the right title. Given that most of you are on Facebook and know all about “Likes,” I thought this seemed relevant and timely. Please let me know what you think.

I’ve made some very short videos from slide shows, added some music and put them up on YouTube. Yes, I tried
Vimeo which I actually prefer, but YouTube lets me add photos individually which is easier. I may change it up in the near future, but for now, it’s You Tube.

Bunting fFlip Flops for Summer

 I am L O V I N G my newest Derin Collection flip flops. I had written about them here. I finally ordered a new pair in the great orange color. Once again, let me say how comfortable they are. It’s still a little early to wear them (sigh) but in a few weeks when I head South (wait til you SEE all I have to show you!) I will definitely be packing these.
Just had to let you all know!

 Bunting fForcing Hyacinths

You all know how I love flowers, and I’ve reported on my Paperwhite Narcissus. But how about hyacinths? They are a bit trickier to do in that they take for…..ever…. to get going. I mean months! A word to the wise: start them in the individual glasses in about October if you want them to flower in January. It’s endless. But oh so worth the wait. Mine, as you will see below, never quite became full height (that’s putting it mildly: they look totally stunted actually) but who cares when they smell so heavenly!


(Sel de Camargue)

This is something I can’t live without. It is luxurious salt: no other way to say it.

Just look at the website for Saunier de Camargue and you will know why I feel this way. But, unfortunately, it has become expensive and yes, luxurious, to buy in the States. When in France it costs about $5.00 at the Super U or a small market. Here, well, my last container cost almost $16.00 at Southern Seasons in Chapel Hill and I expect to pay about that when I go this week to buy more. It DOES last for about 3-4 months, but still….. I hope to go to France this year some time, so let me know if I can bring you some!

I don’t know why that awful ad keeps showing up at the bottom here: I’ve put in the same code as the ad-free videos above, but to no avail. I’ll keep working on it!

That’s it for “Libby’s Likes” for this week. I really do want to know what you all think: about the idea, about the videos, about the content. So you will drop me a line/comment, ok?

I’m not sure how often I will post these Likes: I’m thinking once a month but will let you know.
Have a good week, and let’s hope it’s snow free!
