REMINDER- IT’S TOMORROW- FRIDAY MAY 2, 2014 from 6:00 to 9:00pm at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center!
What kind of new scarf will you discover at belle+me’s spring show at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center from 6:00 to 9:00pm.
Rich fabrics, vibrant colors, and subtle sophistication with a little touch of hipster describe our 2014 spring/summer collection to a tee. Or as we like to say; gypsy meets preppy. Imagine a combination of these two unique styles and you have the latest offerings from belle+me.
We can not wait to see you!

A Cape Ann Big Band concert is one of those rare treats that comes along only a couple of times a year — and this Saturday, May 3, they’re going over the bridge (for their only spring concert this year) to Beverly’s fully restored, historic Larcom Theatre. Come Swing into Spring with Cape Ann Big Band playing hits from the swing, soul, jazz, and rock’n’roll songbooks as well as show tunes and pop songs.
If you haven’t been down the road to the Larcom Theatre yet, this is your chance. It’s the perfect venue for a big band. Built in 1912 (the same year as Fenway Park) by Vaudeville musicians, this gorgeous theatre has spectacular acoustics. And we just installed a new, top-shelf sound system for perfect sound in every seat! Get yours now.
This very special Cape Ann Big Band concert features guest vocalists, Renee Dupuis, John Rockwell, Carolyn Seavey & Nathan Seavey. Get a taste of what you’ll hear in this video:

I was reading Craig Kimberly’s post, Donald Sterling: What Say You?
and couldn’t quite put my finger on who he reminded me of…until now.
I look forward to the questions I receive from GMG FOB’s, family and friends each week! Dozens of questions are asked and answered in the aisles of local stores while I shop, and dozens are privately asked and answered through email, text message, Facebook , or Tweeter each day. I especially love when a question inspires a Sista’s Dish Post! One question asked today did just that!
Ellie Bevins Writes~ Making a rhubarb crisp for a gift. Give me your talented ideas for how to wrap an 8 in square pan??? I was going to put it on a mason jar, but I don’t think its big enough to hold a good amount. I’m stuck. Ellie
Sista Felicia’s Wrapping Suggestion~ Wrap baking dish in tea towel or small Table cloth; gather cloth ends in center of dish; fasten with Zip Tie; using matching decorative ribbon, tie fresh flower bouquet to gathered top and fix decorative bow!
