Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.
If you’re interested in a realistic family drama, Queen Sugar is created, directed and produced by Ava DuVernay, who directed the movie ‘Selma’. Ms. DuVernay put together an all-female team of directors for this very popular series. It tells the story of three grown siblings who return to their father’s sugarcane farm in Louisiana after his death. Warning, I cried three times during the first episode.
Ginny and I both love Foxcroft shirts for women, many of which are no-iron. They come in all colors and designs. My favorites are the longer tunic styles that are great for a causal evening out. Right now they are featuring their linen collection for summer.

Reboundwear Clothing for post surgery-
Have you or your friends just been skiing, rock climbing, hiking? Did anyone get injured? Reboundwear was started by a woman who watched her friends, children and parents struggle after having surgery to find clothing that didn’t need two people to get them dressed. I have a friend who just broke her knee and shoulder in a skiing accident and she found their ‘adaptive athletic wear’ so helpful. It’s stylish, functional and comfortable for people in casts or post-surgery.
