Introducing My Newest Collection on QVC

I can't wait to hear what you think about my newest collection on QVC - Pets! Some of the first items from this line are already on the QVC web site, and I will be unveiling many, many more in the weeks and months ahead.

This week, I flew back to West Chester, Pennsylvania, home of the QVC headquarters and studios, to introduce a handful of Pets products, including my braided rope slip leads, grooming brushes, food and water bowls, rope toys, and an assortment of decorative collar accessories - I know you and your furred friends will love these offerings! I also shared more items from my Garden Collection, such as my popular Hori Hori knife, and handy pressure washer, and several pieces from my Apparel line - everyone loves my twill pants, and poplin long sleeved tunics. If you missed my latest appearance, please go to their web site and take a look. It was another successful trip to QVC - I am looking forward to my next visit!

Enjoy these photos.

Photos from Kevin Sharkey

I always enjoy sharing my home for productive and inspiring business meetings.

Earlier this week, I welcomed a small group of colleagues to my Bedford, New York farm. It was the same day a third nor’easter in two weeks time charged through the Northeast with heavy wet snow and high winds. Fortunately all my guests made it safely. One of them was Kevin Sharkey, my dear friend and EVP Design Director at Sequential Brands Group. Kevin took a series of lovely photos during our gathering and short tour around the property - it’s always fun to view the familiar through someone else’s lens - enjoy these pictures.

And please visit Kevin’s Instagram page @SeenbySharkey for more interesting images.

Snow Falls at Skylands

Skylands, my home in Maine, is under nearly three-feet of snow.

These past couple of weeks have been very challenging for residents in the Northeast after two strong nor’easters barreled through the region. Yesterday, I shared photos of my Bedford, New York farm after the most recent weather system dropped several more inches on the already white landscape. Unfortunately, the snow totals were drastically different up at Skylands - this week, more than 24-inches fell with three to five foot snow drifts. Despite its beauty, all the snow makes clean-up quite difficult. My Skylands crew has been very busy plowing the carriage roads, shoveling the walkways and terraces, and clearing any areas that may be subject to leaking or flooding because of the heavy accumulation - it's a tedious and necessary task.

Cheryl Dulong, who works at Skylands, and my property director, Fred Jacobsen, who is up there for the week, took some photos to show me “what a difference a few days make” - enjoy.

And, be sure to tune in to QVC today at 2pm and 3pm ET! I'll be on LIVE with more fashion items, garden products and pieces from my newest collection - pets!! Don't miss it!
