Heart #79 goes to...Giuseppe Zanotti Camo Pumps

Heart #79 goes to...Giuseppe Zanotti Camo Pumps!  I just finished a post about 20 minutes ago and then my sister told me all about these shoes!  I love camouflage and I would wear it whenever, wherever, all the time if I could.  These are a bit steep at a price tag of $356.25 and that's the sale price.  You can find them here.  I can dream though, can't I?
so pretty...

Heart #78 goes to...Kate Landry "Dottie" Satchel

Heart #78 goes to...Kate Landry "Dottie" Satchel!  I love this bag.  I love satchels more than any type of pocketbook.  This one is $79 and comes in green and black and you can find it here.  It has a zippered top, a zippered back pocket and two zippered and two slip inside pockets.  The inside is lined with a polka-dot print.  Real cute!

Heart #77 goes to...My Word Coach for Nintendo DS

Heart #77 goes to...My Word Coach for Nintendo DS!  I love to keep my DS in my pocketbook and work on my vocabulary.  I love the word games it has.  It makes learning new words fun.  I'm also brushing up on words I have forgotten about and it keeps a progress chart and gives you a daily objective.  It sells for about $19.99 here.

Heart #75 goes to...Mini Spring Cupcakes by Williams Sonoma!  Maybe it's the rain outside that makes me wish for pretty spring cupcakes or maybe it's the dentist appointment I have in two hours.  I always want sweets right before visiting the dentist because I know they will tell me to stay away from them.

  • Belgian milk chocolate with milk chocolate frosting

Heart #74 goes to...Felix Rey "Rain Rain Go Away" Clear Bubble Umbrella

Heart #74 goes to...Felix Rey "Rain Rain Go Away" Clear Bubble Umbrella!  It's been raining all day and I have been out a few times already to walk my dog.  This is the umbrella I need.  It will definitely protect my hair from the drizzle and rain blowing at me, threatening to frizz my lovely locks!  And it's clear so I can keep it low and see where I'm going.  I love the red heart and the "rain rain go away" printed on it.  I found this at Bloomingdales for $65.

Heart #73 goes to...Bosom Button

Heart #73 goes to...Bosom Button!  I have to order a few of these.  There have been so many times when a shirt just didn't fit right.  So you start looking for the right camisole, or if that doesn't work you begin the dreaded search for a safety pin.  And then the safety pin requires a few tries before it looks right.  Bosom Button takes all of that frustration away and how cute are these buttons?  Simply push the pin through the fabric and fasten the clasp.  You can even keep one handy in your pocketbook in case you ever lose a button. 
They are made with Swarovski crystals, quality pearls or gems.  They sell in collections of three for $25 dollars or individually for $12 dollars each, and they come in all of the following...


Secure a low cut blouse...

or even a sarong!

Heart #72 goes to...The Elm Street Oyster House in Greenwich, CT.  My husband and I love this place and have been eating here for many years.  I will always remember our early dating years and the many dinners we shared here.  I highly recommend this place, it never disappoints.  We love to try different dishes here but we remain faithful to two specific dishes:

Heart #71 goes to...The Meatball Shop in NYC

Heart #71 goes to...The Meatball Shop in NYC!  Can't say I've been here...yet.  But it's definitely on my list of places I will be visiting.  If anyone knows me, they know I love meatballs.  My mom makes great little appetizer meatballs and my mother in law makes the best Italian meatballs.  So when I do eat at The Meatball Shop the best they can do is come in a close 3rd.  They are located at 84 Stanton St. (between Allen and Orchard) and on Thursday thru Saturday they are open from noon to 4am.  I hear the chicken meatball sliders are delicious and they have freshly baked cookies for their ice cream sandwiches.  I'll let you know how the experience goes as soon as I try the place out.
You place your order on wipe-away laminated sheets...

The classic Meatball Hero on crunchy baguette $9

Meatball Sliders $3

Heart #70 goes to...Butterfly Petits Fours by Williams Sonoma

Heart #70 goes to...Butterfly Petits Fours by Williams Sonoma!  I think my blog is beginning to look like a Williams Sonoma catalog but I love how pretty these are.  Now that Spring has sprung, it's time to blog about pretty pastel colors and butterflies!  Although the theme of my blog tends to lean towards pinks and reds anyway, two of my favorite colors.  Aren't these delicious looking?  What a nice addition they would be to a tea party.  That's one more thing I love but haven't really blogged about...teacups!  I have such a beautiful collection and I really should post some pics of my favorite teacups.
Anyway here's the Williams Sonoma description...
Perfect with dessert wine, after-dinner coffee or afternoon tea, our petits fours come in three luscious flavors – vanilla, lemon and raspberry. Eight layers tall, they’re hand made with airy vanilla sponge cake, smooth buttercream and a top layer of marzipan, all draped in silky chocolate. The vanilla flavor is further enhanced with a layer of white chocolate ganache, the lemon with lemon curd and the raspberry with all-natural raspberry jam. The finishing touch is a hand-cut marzipan butterfly. They’re prepared for us by Dragonfly Cakes in Sausalito, California. Shipped frozen. 11 oz. (12 petits fours, four of each flavor). A Williams-Sonoma exclusive. $29.95

Heart #69 goes to...Ultimate Taco Starter by Williams Sonoma

Heart #69 goes to...Ultimate Taco Starter by Williams Sonoma!  As you all know, I am a big fan of Williams Sonoma.  I love to browse the store any chance I get and I love their starter products.  I have blogged about their Meatloaf Starter, their Sloppy Joe Starter and now this.  Once again I wasn't disappointed with the product.  I used ground turkey instead of beef, one jar of the starter, shredded cheese, taco shells, sour cream, tomatoes and salsa and dinner was fast, fun and delicious.  I love tacos and usually just use the mix that comes with the whole complete taco dinner that you buy at the supermarket.  But I wanted to try something different and I would pay the $12.50 again because it was a nice change in flavor.  I think I'm only left with their Pulled Pork Starter to try!  Oh wait, I just checked the website and they also have a White Chili Starter.  Hope to blog about that soon!

Heart #68 goes to...The Pet High Chair by Hammacher Schlemmer

Heart #68 goes to...The Pet High Chair by Hammacher Schlemmer!  I thought this was a joke when I first saw it, but it's for real.  I guess a lot of people like to keep their dog on their lap when they eat.  I don't because there just wouldn't be any food left for me.  I thought this would be an easier way for the dog to get onto the table until I realized that there are two straps on either side to attach to the dog's collar to prevent them from jumping onto the table.  So, make what you want of this, I thought it was funny.  $49.95 will get you your very own.

Heart #66 goes to...Pink Ribbon Purse Hanger

Heart #66 goes to...Pink Ribbon Purse Hanger with Pink Stones!  Last year I purchased a bunch of these and have been giving them out to friends and family.  They are on backorder right now at, but they sell four for $26.  I always have mine in my purse ready to hang my pocketbook, because there's no way I'm dropping it on the floor.  I can't believe some people will pay hundreds of dollars for a purse and then put it on a dirty floor.  Anyway, these come with a nice black velvet drawstring pouch to keep it in.  They make great bridal party gifts!

Heart #58 goes to...Curations with Stefani Greenfield "Butterfly" Ring

Heart #58 goes to...Curations with Stefani Greenfield "Butterfly" ring.  I don't really have large rings like this, but if I were to wear one, this might be it.  I have become very fond of butterflies ever since I went to the "Butterflies Go Free" exhibit on a trip to Montreal, Canada a few years ago.  They were so beautiful and I was able to take some really cool pictures.  I love the polished gunmetal tone of this ring and the black diamond color stones.  It's available on HSN for $34.90.
