All That Glitters: Laura Lee Designs Celebrates Fifth Anniversary at Finnish Ambassador's Residence

All That Glitters: Laura Lee Designs Celebrates Fifth Anniversary at Finnish Ambassador's Residence

It’s not every day that one gets an opportunity to celebrate a professional milestone at an ambassador’s residence, but Laura Lee Williams, owner of Laura Lee Designs, had the good fortune to do so when she celebrated five years at the helm of her handbag business at the home of Finnish Ambassador Pekka Lintu and his wife Laurel Colless.

“What an honor and gift to have the loveliest evening surrounded by advisors, supporters and dear friends,” says Williams. “The Finnish Ambassador and his wife Laurel Colless are supreme hosts and I couldn’t have asked for a better evening.”

Gift Ideas For Mother's Day

Just as the temperature begins to show signs of heating up, and my flower beds begin to show signs of life beyond winter, I found the most gorgeous collection of silk photo albums that are simply too elegant to forget. And in fact, I was invited to a fabulous black tie event last weekend at my friend, Lynda's home (yes, her home!) and I so wish that I had come across these works of art before I settled on something lovely as a hostess gift-- but not nearly as special.

Wisconsin Avenue Giant soon to become a Reality—Demolition to Begin Late Summer

Wisconsin Avenue Giant soon to become a Reality—Demolition to Begin Late Summer

After many long years of small community resistance, and another case of “Not in My Back Yard” politicking, the Cathedral Commons, which will include a more expansive grocery store, shopping options, residential housing, and an enlivened streetscape, will soon become a reality. 

Giant has not yet selected a developer or general contractor for the project but they have several proposals and will make a selection within the next few months.  The construction of the new buildings is expected to begin in the fall.

Unfortunately, the existing stores have to shut down.  The barber's sign says he's leaving at the end of this month and some tenants, like Sullivan’s, have been extended until June.

Don't Let the Traffic Grinch Steal Your Holiday Shopping Cheer!

Ahhh….the holiday season is upon us again, replete with its many joys: rosy-cheeked, smiling children, twinkling lights, the smell of baking cookies, the opportunity to dress your dog like a reindeer and tell all your friends that “he really likes it.” But it also carries just a wee bit of stress. There’s the baking of said cookies, hanging the pretty lights, travel plans, menus, and, of course, shopping. Lots and lots of shopping.
