    I am so excited about Mad Men! Do we know if this is the last season? I have been meaning to ask: are you a Downton Abbey fan? I was watching it on Netflix just for fun and I became obsessed with it! It’s a must watch. Also, you are a fan of The Carrie Diaries so I am assuming it is worth it? I read both books and really enjoyed them. Have you read the books and if so do they do the books justice??

      I have not started Downton Abbey yet – but it is on my summer list! I can’t wait – I do feel a little left out! I have NOT read The Carrie Diaries books (I know, I know I can’t believe it either!) so I can’t compare them. But Carrie’s back story on the show does not match up from SITC – not sure if it did in the book? If you can get over that – I think you will like it! I have read almost every Candace Bushnell – Trading Up, One Fifth Avenue… so I guess I shoudl add Carrie Diaries to my summer list too!

    I tried an Easter arrangement very similar to this one over the weekend (found it on Pintrest!) I used tulips instead of daisies and jelly beans instead of glass beads. It was not too difficult…although a little tricky to get the Peeps in and keep them straight. It was definitely a highlight of our dinner party – it’s such a colorful and springy arrangement and looked beautiful on the table.

      I am going to publish the pic you sent me because it is just too gorgeous with the tulips and peeps!!

      And CONGRATULATIONS! You are the 400th comment — prize to come!!!
