#RememberingLisa, Or, Saturday Morning at 7:52am


I’m going to take a moment in memoriam, if you don’t mind. Lisa Boncheck Adams died yesterday, at the age of 45. She leaves behind a husband and 3 young children. I wrote briefly about her last year, here. Back when I first met Lisa online, 5 or 6 years ago, she was always open […]

3 Public Service Announcements From And For The Privilege Community


I thought I’d round up a some interesting bits that have come my way from the community. 1. Mark Defrates Jewelry, the makers of that pentangle talisman, are offering a 15% discount for Privilege readers. No code to enter, just email Pam (markdefrates (at) mac.com) and let her know you have bought or will be […]

Once Again, Technology Hiccups


Edited: The issues appear to have been resolved, happily, and we should be back on track with the usual folderol. Thank you for your patience, and Kelly Phillips at Boost Interactive Media for her help. Hello all. Once again I am having issues with email post notifications. I am not yet sure whether this is […]

The Privilege Pre-Holiday Season Report To The Board, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:27am


Time for the Privilege Report To The Board, in which I show a few numbers, and discuss issues of strategic concern. I’ve done this before, through the years, in an effort to stay transparent. This time it’s particularly important, if only to my mental health, because the season of Buy It All has arrived. If […]

Quarterly Blog Break


Hi guys! Time for the usual quarterly blog break. For any of you new to this self-published-time-stamped-upload-images game, I highly recommend planned breaks as a way to keep yourself going. New tagline, happily writing for 5 years and more? See you in a week! Share on Facebook Tweet!

Something Other Than Listsicles, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:48am


I want to thank whoever recommended The Browser to me. A hunt through the blog comments and email yielded no name, so you remain our mystery informant. In March, I wrote here that I felt uneducated, with respect to the world. Everyone gave me great recommendations. Six months later, The Browser has made perhaps the […]

It’s Not A Sprint, It’s A Relay; Three Style Bloggers Take The Baton.


As I have broadened my scope to write about house style and gardens, by necessity I spend less time on clothing and accessories. I thought I could perhaps address the gap by pointing you to a few style bloggers  – new to me – whose taste I find – as Jane Austen would say – […]

Do Not Concern Yourself With My Absence, Or, Saturday Afternoon At 1:51pm


Well. I am back from blog break, but apparently not back enough to manage a Saturday morning post. Neither emergencies nor crises are at fault, and probably some stories of gallivanting will follow. I hope you are in the midst of a wonderful weekend. Share on Facebook Tweet!

LPC Is At The Highland Fashionista Today


I took advantage of my blog break to deliver on some long-delayed commitments. I hate when I fail to do as promised, everything feels off balance, but the world is now back on its axis. As evidence, today I’m over at Kristin’s wonderful blog, Highland Fashionista. I hope you read her, she’s funny and gorgeous, […]

A Deconstructed, Imaginary, Celebrity, Mom’s Afternoon Out At The Standard High Line Biergarten


How’s that for a title? As you all know, lots of requests float toward us in the blogosphere. Most often I decline. (This post here posited the life I might lead if I accepted more broadly.) However, I do participate in offers, when a good giveaway is involved, or when I find the merchant requesting […]
