HELLO! It’s Saturday, time for a roundup of the week’s MyLittleBird posts, all of which are linked to below.
On Monday, Valerie Monroe’s terrific “How Not to F*ck Up Your Face” column gave us a few things to think about on the off chance some of us were contemplating having some “work” done on the face God and time gave us.
Well-Being columnist Mary Carpenter, who has wrestled like a champ with the ups and downs of Covid-19, found a lighter (but still worthy) topic in the sudden rush to “slugging,” meaning slathering on petroleum jelly (think Vaseline) to combat dry skin. Some people can’t believe it, others have been doing it behind closed doors for years!
Wednesday, our fashion day, found LittleBird Janet sussing out new rain gear, just as the spring skies turned against us—great timing, Janet!
On Thursday, our home-and-design day, our Green Acre columnist, Stephanie Cavanaugh, revealed her secret for making dormant plants look alive again. Psst! You can buy it at the hardware store.
We call Friday our lifestyle-and-culture day, and this week LittleBird Nancy shined a light on four incredible artisans whose works—in silver, porcelain, basketry and paper—will steal at least part of the scene at the venerable Smithsonian Craft Show, opening this coming Thursday, April 20.
Read on, please! And see you on Monday!
