Hi friends….well, this might not be quite the St. Patrick’s Day many of you had planned on. Fun and silly office celebrations, maybe a parade or two, kids dressing up in green for school….life as we know it has changed dramatically over the last week and there is simply no denying that. I hope you are all safe and healthy, and practicing the social distancing, which is now crystal clear as the primary way to avoid both contamination and exposure to the virus.

I made a difficult decision yesterday to close our office/warehouse as of yesterday, which was a first. The decision was made in the best interest of my employees and practicing what the CDC is urging every American  to do. We will be closed all of this week and will assess going into next week, what the next steps will be. We are reachable at all times via email.

Thank you for your understanding and support as we all navigate these new uncharted waters. So lets celebrate St. Patty’s Day virtually, why don’t we! I thought it would be fun for a little diversion to take a look at some gorgeous green rooms, which have me dreaming of a little decorating:) I vowed that i will keep on blogging and keep up with my posts because it is as much of a respite for me as it is for you!

We need to keep the few constants in our life that we do have control over….We always hold a sale for St. Patrick’s Day and  will keep our 20% off St. Patrick’s Day on as was planned however please understand that orders will not ship until next Monday (use code clover).

So….what do you think! Love any specific room? There are so many I love here, but I am drawn to those that also have a little blue and white, as i think it really creates such impact against the green.

As promised all green items on our shop site are 20% off today through 3pm tomorrow (since this is starting so late). Use code clover. Just keep in mind however, that orders wil not ship until Monday/ Tues of next week.

In the meantime, please stay safe, heed  those warnings of social distancing as we must all do our part. We will come out of this stronger and more united than ever, I am confident.

Until that time…I will continue to post and keep up with the blog because I truly believe in times like this, it is so important to seek the beauty, humor and all that inspires us. We must hold onto hope because that is one thing we  all have in common. Be well, until next time…….

Hi Tina, Such a beautiful post! Thank You!

I don’t know anyone to talk to in New York. You have been so great talking about this virus and caring about your employees.

Was wondering if NYC does get overloaded with patients and not enough beds, is there a possibility of docking a large cruise ship and using that as a makeshift hospital for people with the virus. It has the beds, bathrooms, kitchen and must have a health facility. I know much would have to be done, for equipment, but would it be easier now, when ships are not being booked, to use these as floating hospitals, rather than build new make shift hospitals?

Loved your idea of seniors shopping early. Have seen this become a reality!!!

Thank you for sharing the green rooms! I love the one by Sarah Bartholomew….makes me wish I had a bolder approach to decorating! Love the green!
These trying times will pass. The sun will rise each day and my rose bush will continue to bloom. It is a great time for those of us to be good role models in handling crisis situations. A teachable time to let the younger generation know how important it is to practice self-care, self-reliance, patience, fortitude and resilience. It is even more important to help each other when the going gets tough, instead of behaving in a selfish, dog eat dog way. With every challenge, comes new innovation and new behaviors. I am encouraged by the collaboration between the private sector and government to change obsolete practices that have been on the books for decades. The swine flu in 2009 was worse than this, but it appears not much was done to alter practices. Hopefully this time, necessary changes will be made, new innovations created and the next time we all will be better prepared. Now more than ever, we need beautiful blog posts and kind and caring messages.

Hi and thank you for this beautiful post with my favorite color although I have to say after reading your blog, blue is starting to compete with the green!!

Hope that you are safe and I agree these times are very scary for all Americans but everyone needs to do their part and listen to the experts, they know what they’re talking about. As someone who has three physicians in our family, all I hear over and over again is to stay home, stay away from people, literally to self isolate is the only way that we stand a chance to not become the next Italy.

The government has stepped it up but most of the medical community are baffled that they are not implementing a nationwide quarantine but in the meantime we must all use our inner voice and stay away. Stay safe!

He still my heart. The green herringbone. I have wanted to do this for many years. Ever since I saw Kirstie Alley do her kitchen in green. It was drop dead gorgeous.

Tina, you are a good person and employer. I think it’s wonderful that you have closed shop for a week to take care of your employees and do your part in flattening the curve. What a scary time with all this uncertainty. Tina, you are extremely talented and your blogs are beautiful and uplifting. I appreciate all the time that you spend writing to your customers and followers. Periodically, I read some of the comments that people leave you, and wow… everyone admires and adores you and your online shop.
Thanks for caring about your employees and all of us! P.S. My favorite green room is Carolyn Roehme. Your porcelains would look fabulous in a room painted that color green! Take care!
