She is our Allison Kennedy...fitting because of that Kennedy's on vacation on Martha's Vineyard after a rousing game of tennis vibe.

Good Fortune Edition: Peonies

The fattest and most scrumptious of all flowers, a rare fusion of fluff and majesty, the peony is now coming into bloom.–Henry Mitchell, American writer (1923-1993) This season our shop is brimming with blossoms and it seems even more so than usual. But one life form we are falling in love with all over again this year is the peony. Its soft petals, its voluptuous shape, and what it says about our future.  We believe in the voice of the peony and hear is what it is saying...it is the floral symbol for China.The peony speaks of your good fortune, of wealth, and riches. It is essentially the fortune cookie of flowers. It represents the love between two strangers and the beauty of...
