Adele Elliott: Connections

Posted 5/10/2014 in Columns

It seems that the winter from Hades is finally over. We will probably not have another freeze for many months, the tornadoes have moved on (cross your fingers), and the monsoons have dissipated -- for now.

 

 

Being Beautiful: Remembering the Ethel to Your Lucy

My week started with happy announcements and plans for celebrations.

 

Southern Gardening: Annual flowering vinca deserves garden space

Posted 4/26/2014 in Columns

With the chance of any more spring freezes getting lower by the day, the typical home gardener is out looking for plants for when the summer temperatures start to rise. Annual flowering vinca is one that really brightens up our Mississippi summer landscapes.

Being Beautiful: Watching the woman you want to be emerge

Posted 4/26/2014 in Columns

Settling into my styling chair for the first time, Emily Haxton wasn't the least bit interested in the current edition of Veranda or a petit four, because she was wearing that oh-too-familiar frown of a woman not in love with her hair.

 

Adele Elliott: Sky gazing

Posted 4/26/2014 in Columns

It seems that spring has finally come to the Golden Triangle -- and not a moment too soon.

 

 

A Stone's throw: One of those days

It was one of those days. I am told everybody has them.

 

 

Being Beautiful: Timeless love of mothers and sons, at Easter and always

Posted 4/19/2014 in Columns

As a little boy stepping on my mama's heels, holidays were the most exciting time. I had the kind of mama that moved Heaven and earth for her children, especially at Easter.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Book tour

Posted 4/19/2014 in Columns

Last week Chris and I immersed ourselves in a journey of literacy. Although we only traveled to nearby Starkville and Caledonia, our short excursions spanned generations, and introduced us to many smart people with a passion for reading.

 

 

A Stone's throw: Highland games

Posted 4/12/2014 in Columns

Once upon a time I attended some Highland games in Scotland.

 

Southern Gardening: Cold winter may provide surprises mixed with losses

Posted 4/12/2014 in Columns

This winter we have seen some mighty cold weather in our gardens and landscapes. As a result, we'll see damage to some landscape plants and we'll lose others. And with some plants, there will be surprises.

 

Being Beautiful: What do Minnie Pearl and Princess Diana have in common?

Posted 4/12/2014 in Columns

Easter bonnets might very well be a Southern thing, but they're a Southern thing I adore.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Veracity

Posted 4/12/2014 in Columns

My two favorite cities, Columbus and New Orleans, have much in common.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Boom

Posted 4/5/2014 in Columns

We baby boomers have had reasons to be slightly arrogant. For a long time it seemed that the world was spinning beneath our feet. We were like the ballerina in a music box, twirling in front of a mirror that reflected only us.

 

Being Beautiful: Pharmacist gets makeover prescription

Posted 4/5/2014 in Columns

Sometimes the best medicine comes from within -- a prescription of peace and tranquility. It also never hurts to add a dose of your favorite stylist to treat those side effects still lingering from a blah winter.

Southern Gardening: Nasturtium is beautiful, tasty addition to gardens

Posted 3/29/2014 in Columns

Shopping in a garden center in the spring confronts visitors with an almost dizzying array of new plants with flower colors that seem to go beyond our imagination.

 

Being Beautiful: Finding the flat iron that's just right for you

Posted 3/29/2014 in Columns

Furry Easter Bunny ears, speckled eggs, baskets galore have been in my peripheral vision this season -- so far. I walked right by them all the other day in my hunt for the perfect flat iron.

 

 

A Stone's throw: Marchers

Posted 3/29/2014 in Columns

Adele Elliott: Welcome, pilgrims

Posted 3/29/2014 in Columns

Thank heavens, spring is finally here! This winter will go down in history as one of the most brutal ever. In the Golden Triangle, we had a much easier experience than in other parts of the country. Here, there were no blizzards; massive, icy traffic jams; or loss of power. But, lordy, it was cold.
