We get a crazy feeling that chases in our head…
It’s nothing that you do to us, it’s nothing that you said…
It’s love in stereo (after all, we are twins!) and when we can’t let go, we say…
Milk Dipped Tumblers
We’ll tumble 4 ya
We’ll tumble 4 ya
American Thumbprint Tumblers
We’ll tumble 4 ya, we’ll tumble for you!

Glowing Pinecone Bouquet
Putting on a traditional Thanksgiving spread in the Belgian countryside when we were kids was no small feat and Mother called on special powers to do so…
In our eyes, she was part magician (having to conjure up a turkey in a country where they ran wild, Butterball being something you picked up at the local farm to spread on homemade bread!) and part Midas, as our table usually glowed with golden touches like gilded branches, acorns, fruit and nuts.
Some of our fondest memories are of our mother in the kitchen directing our very English cook in the baking of pumpkin pies and the making of stuffing – not quite the standing rib roast and Yorkshire pudding Mrs. Jansen was famous for!
These days, we’re in charge of making our own “merci donant” (that’s Thanksgiving in French!) and we hope our children’s memories are as magical and golden as ours… How do you make your Thanksgiving special?

The best part about traveling for work is having three uninterrupted hours on the plane to catch up on our reading. Along with the usual suspects, we’re packing the Summer 2011 issue of flower magazine.
In the Garden with William Yeoward
Moda Botica Bouquet
Being the flower girls that we are, this Alabama-based magazine is a seasonal must-read. From pretty pictures of floral compositions, tablescapes and gardens, to articles about interior and product designers (like William Yeoward and Suzanne Rheinstein), flower is filled with floral fun to please all types. And with a mission of “enriching life through flowers,” what’s not to love?
Wedding Flowers and Favors
It’s just too bad we have to wait another three months for the next issue!
