Beat the Heat (or at least pretend to) July 7, 2010

Ok, so here in Buffalo, it is so hot I cannot even stand it!  I decided to find a few fun things that help me forget about how hot I am 🙂

For the kiddos!!  Bring along on a picnic to keep your kids  imagination going!

A favorite lunch combination of play foods, it looks good enough to eat! A delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich made with the unique Royal Rugrats bread. Each slice feels just like the real thing and has hand stitching for the entire crust! A side of tortilla chips with a fun scalloped edge and the brand new peanut butter and cracker snack to complete this lunch set. Crackers are made of a double layer of eco fi felt and hand stitched edges stuffed with peanut butter spread. So many ways for your Royal Chef to enjoy pretend cooking or getting ready for their own imagination picnic!

Do you remember the good old days when you were young 🙂 After finishing a “MMMM good” Can of Soup, You would go out in the backyard with you BFF and make yourself a String telephone. It would always amaze me that is would actually work Aww to go back in time when a couple can and a string would entertain me for hours 🙂

Get in those bathing suits!!!  If you are lucky enough to need one, I would recommend visiting  FABULOUS!!!!  I want every single one!  And the photos are just to die for!!

She is really comfortable, and she’s perfect for you if you like to be active in your swimsuits. You would feel pretty secure wearing her eventhough she is a tube suit, but she also comes with hot pink strings that are detachable so you can wear her either way you like.

Family Rules!??  Barn Owl Primitives on Etsy hand paints them on a pine board so you can display them for everyone to see!  What an adorable idea to keep everyone up on how to treat each other, because we all know it is easy to forget;)

Every guy needs a new wallet!!  They are always falling apart or putting holes in the pockets of their jeans, falling out and getting lost.

These great repurposed leather wallets from Archer Ave on Etsy are great and span all kinds of tastes from the rugged, country man to the suit wearer on Wall Street.

They also come in a really great carrying case that can be used for a bunch of things from receipts, paper clips, photos…..

PhotoAtelier on Etsy makes these really awesome personalized photo blocks.  Ugghhh!!  I just love them and want my house to be covered in them!!!

Ok, I was about finished…..and then I came across this……….

Coral Gardening?? May 14, 2010

This is AMAZING!  Coral gardening????  I was recently watching a television show on the Pacific and I was just amazed by this.

All over the world, there are serious concerns about the state of our coral reefs.
Some scientists estimate we’ve already lost 5 percent of all reefs on the planet.

But would life really be so different if there were no coral reefs left in the world? Aside from the aesthetic loss of one of the most beautiful habitats on earth, corals are a vital source of food and provide a livelihood for a surprising number of the world’s inhabitants – somewhere between 200 million and 500 million people.


Extraordinary new ocean ‘reseeding’ techniques mean that there still may be time to halt-or even reverse-the destruction os these marine marvels.

Mother corals are first established in the coral farms, by trimming sections off of wild corals.

After growing the mother corals for about two years, the corals reach the size of a large dinner plate.

These second-generation corals are either replanted into restoration sites, onto coral castles, or harvested, bleached and coloured with acrylic paints to re-establish a more realistic coral colour, and marketed to support the community development and conservation work.

Here is a really fabulous video: : that shows what dedicated coral gardeners are doing to restore the declining reefs in Fiji.


Farmers Market Time!! May 8, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — ArcherAve @ 8:56 am

HI everyone!!
I have not given up blogging, but I have to admit I have been a bit of a slacker….. 😀

Today, here in Buffalo, is a day I look forward to throughout our long winter………the Bidwell Farmers Market begins!!!!!  YAY!!!!!!

So have fun!!!  And maybe you will find a fabulous estate sale along the way!!  (or maybe that is just my dream)

So if you are LUCKY enough to have a farmers market in your town, get you tuchies out there!!  It will be fun and delicious, I promise!!

Here are a few ideas that may help you narrow down your wants as you step into the fruit and veggie paradise.

* Buy food that you can eat without cooking.  That you can pop in your mouth as a heathy snack!

* Buy one totally crazy thing you have never eaten before.  Go home, look up some recipes and maybe find a new favorite!

* Buy some LOCAL honey.  Local honey has been shown to help those suffering the yucky-ness of allergies.

* Get some advice!  Ask the growers themselves how to prepare it!

* Buy someone you love a nice bundle of flowers.


Clementiny at Summer Studio! April 18, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — ArcherAve @ 8:32 am

I am super excited that Clementiny is going to be a part of the awesome women’s collection for Summer Studio!!!

In Summer 2010 Clementiny will be taking over (we hope, hehe) the gallery spaces at 21st and Ocean Drive in Avalon, NJ.  Summer Studio is an art and design gallery presented as a life-style shop.  Introducing the customer to an approachable way to bring art and design into their homes and lives.

A little bit about Avalon…
Avalon is a seaside community whose population swells from a quaint and picturesque town of approximately 2000, to a vibrant beach resort of 45,000 during the peak summer season.

Avalon was named one of the “50 next great towns to live and play” by National Geographic Magazine.

Forbes Magazine listed Avalon as one of the most expensive zip codes in the United States.

Neighbors of the vacationing Greater Philadelphia area families include notable names Oprah Winfrey, John BonJovi, and various sports personalities and their families. All who have owned homes in Avalon, NJ.

The Washingtonian Magazine named Avalon “the chicest beach in the Mid Atlantic”.

So if your in the area, stop in!!!
