When I think of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, I think of style -- and how they seem to have left such a wonderful batch of it in their movies and in the clothes they wore.
The people who designed and chose their wardrobes were spot on. It is amazing how Hepburn and Kelly could step out of any of their films and be right on the mark with whatever they were wearing.
Grace Kelly did not make many movies, but each one contains a treasure trove of fashion ideas, I am sure, for many aspiring designers. Audrey Hepburn will live on forever with her black stove pipe pants and crisp white shirts, black flats and giant sunglasses.
Who do you think has got "it" in Bluffton? Is there someone who would get your top vote for stylishness?
It was during the Cold War that this supposedly happened so she just might have mixed a secret or two in her cheeses and fruits served for dessert. There may also be a secret meaning in some of the recipes in her cookbook â€" after all, it is quite full of how to do things like truss ducks and chickens. Who knows! She may have really been talking about people.
I must go back through my book and slowly read every word â€" I might just find a secret code amongst the entrèes!
Until then, I recommend sticking closely to her recipes, because so far I've found she really knew how to cook and enjoy life â€" which might be the real secret, after all.
The app is based on GPS coordinates, so it can deliver directions from a current location to whatever marker is being searched. This certainly helps put history at the touch of a button. How many times have you wanted to locate a historical spot or find out more about one? I think this would be a great idea for all states to offer. Children would love it, and the trip would be much more fun.
If I want to give someone a flower or plant I could nip over to The Garden Gate or the new florist May River Flowers next to Jeff Scott. A bottle of wine and some cheese from Vineyard 55 might hit the spot at Easter dinner.
I know one thing for sure: The Easter Bunny will be in Bluffton on Calhoun Street from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday. The annual Bluffton Children's Easter Stroll will take place then. So get out your chapeaux and join us. We look forward to seeing young and old alike. The bunny will hop off promptly at noon, so don't be late.
