This and That

Spring has officially begun with yet another snowstorm that dumped about 5″ of snow. Fortunately, the temperatures are rising and the snow is FINALLY melting. My barometer has been our Christmas tree that I left outside the back door. At one point it was a very high pile of snow, but now it is visible again.

Time to get rid of it.

I am in the midst of about five different projects at The Money Pit, one of them being paint colors for different rooms.

One thing I did to bring spring into the house was to start an herb garden. There is something so rewarding about planting the seeds, watering them every day and waiting for the moment when they pop through the dirt. I even bought a “grow light” that I keep on 24/7.

I even made it to the barn this week after a long hiatus of not riding due to the weather.

Amor was so excited when he heard I was coming to ride him! (Thank you, Carol, for this great picture!)

On Tuesday, March 10th, I had the pleasure of attending the annual Dinner Benefit of the New York School of Interior Design, held at the newly renovated and iconic Rainbow Room in NYC. I had planned to write a full blog on this event, however my camera was on the wrong setting and none of my photos came out. The following photos are courtesy of Editor At Large.

The tables were beautifully set with orchids; just one more sign of spring.

Also on my agenda is the Orchid show at New York Botanical Gardens. It is a must-see at this time of year. I will definitely check my camera settings when I go!
