Learn More About Gardening with Flower School at Butterbee Farm

Flower School

 catch of the day fish (2)It may still be too early to fully visualize how gorgeous your garden will be in a couple of months, but it’s exactly the right time to sign up for any (or all) of Butterbee Farm’s Flower School offerings. The series of classes begins in June, but space is extremely limited, so early registration is a must. Each class covers a different subject—from “Getting an Early Start” to “Growing Edible Flowers” to “Your Autumn Garden.” Even for experienced gardeners, the folks at Butterbee probably have something to teach about gardening. After all, they’ve been named Baltimore’s Prettiest CSA by the City Paper, and its 2014 CSA is already completely sold out. But that just means you’ll have to grow your own flowers this season—which they’re happy to help you learn how to do. Read More →

Fresh Starts for Small Soles: Fashion Meets Philanthropy

0 Written by: | Thursday, Mar 06, 2014 1:00pm

photo-3I recently had the opportunity to visit my friend Lisa Garrett who lives in Costa Rica. Before my visit, we discussed going to the country’s beautiful beaches, visiting waterfalls and volcanoes, eating freshly-picked fruit off the trees on her block and interacting with friendly monkeys in town. But my real burning desire was to see her in action and experience her mission work up-close and personal. Lisa is the founder of an organization called “Souls Helping Soles”,  which helps the local impoverished children make fresh starts by putting on their feet shoes that have been donated and delivered by local and international volunteers.

STOP! It’s Time To Re-Fresh! Your Closet

0 Written by: | Tuesday, Feb 11, 2014 11:00am

While we prepare for snow, we dream of spring!  And what better way to spend a snow day than to attack your closet (which, admit it, is probably a mess of salt covered boots and sloppily piled sweaters)?  Fashionista and stylist Heidi Slacum, owner of the recently relocated Fresh! Boutique (it’s now in the Festival at Woodholme) gives us all a lesson in closet organization — and gets us pondering our spring purchases — and keeps it fun.  Spring’s right around the corner (promise!). Take a few pointers from a pro.

While going through my closet to pack for an upcoming trip, I realized my personal fashion portfolio needs some “refreshing.”  Working in the fashion industry, you can imagine the accumulation of clothing that I end up with: never worn or worn once clothes, all stuffed to the back of the closet for another day.  I decided to take my own organizational advice and take a “spring fling” with my closet!

If you find yourself overwhelmed by your array of apparel and in need of 1) space 2) organization and 3) new looks for the upcoming season, take these steps to free you from clutter and renew your faith in fashion!

Step 1: Edit
  • Store – Slip fall and winter (past season) clothing in acid-free boxes or airtight bins. Before storing make sure each piece is clean, repaired, if necessary, and folded. Use small bins for gloves, hats and scarves. Use larger bins for coats. If you’re storing a fur coat, check with a reputable furrier such as Mano Swartz for complete storing and care. For boots, store a few pair in long bins that will fit under the bed and put the rest in larger bins in a storage unit or hallway closet.
  • Sort – Pull everything out of the closet entirely and organize into groups: trousers, skirts, tops/blouses, blazers/jackets, short day dresses, short evening dresses, long formal dresses, hats & scarves; divide purses into two groups – handbags and clutches.
  • Stash/Trash – Stash items you either wear regularly or those worn for a very special occasion like that long sequined ball gown. Trash all items that have stains, pilling, or have stretched or torn beyond repair. (Consignment stores won’t take these worn items either.) You can donate what you don’t want to keep for a write-off to the Goodwill or The Salvation Army. Remaining items you haven’t worn in the last six months — or same season last year — should be tried on. Afterward, edit!! Decide if you still “love” it, if it’s flattering to your current shape, if you have other clothes to go with it, and, if necessary, if you have the time or energy to “fix” it to make it wearable again. If you have gently worn clothes that you are merely “over” consider donating them to non-profits that supply at-risk or under-served job seekers with interview outfits and work attire such as or Dressed for Success or House of Ruth.  You also may consider donating items such as designer gowns or cocktail dresses you’ve worn a few times to luxury consignment stores such as Love Me Two Times or taking them to a specialty store like Octavia II where you will receive a credit toward a new purchase. For all of you fashionistas who dream of your own boutique and want to have control over your recyclables and make some money from your “trash,” create your own site on Poshmark.com!! Read More →
