Move over Hollywood. . .

Philadelphia is a film darling, once again!

The role of Rocky Balboa, played by Sylvester Stallone in 1976, placed the film spotlight brightly upon the City of Brotherly Love.  Nominated for 10 Oscars in 1977, and winner of three (including Best Picture), the recognition given to Rocky could easily have given Philly a BIG head, and from the looks of this POP vinyl Rocky collectible figurine, it had that effect on Stallone. . . LOL!

Either way, thanks in large part to the hard work of all the folks over at the GPFO, in 2013, Philadelphia has its sights set on Oscar, once again, compliments of Silver Linings Playbook.  It boasts 8 Oscar nods, including one for Hometown Hottie Bradley Cooper (his first)!

So this Sunday night, cheers to Rocky, best of luck to Silver Linings Playbook, kudos to the GPFO, love and lust to Bradley Cooper, and a sweet sofa snuggle to the one and only Oscar!

Life, LOVE, Liberty, & a little FUN!

This President's Day weekend, we recall the words of our 1st President, George Washington, who said, "Interwoven is the LOVE of Liberty with every ligament of the heart."
It's February (the month of celebrating love), we're here in Philly (the City of Brotherly Love), and we absolutely LOVE this handy symbol of liberty for your home!

So "wring" out those old dish rags and replace them with this whimsical dish brush! 

While you're at it, pause and give thanks for the many liberties you're afforded this day.

Now, go enjoy your freedom to have some decorating fun!

LOVE is in the. . .


kitchen, this Valentine's Day!

As a lover of art, a lover of cookies, and a lover of Philly, this novel cookie cutter has it all.

This unique tin cutter is crafted in the shape of Robert Indiana's famous LOVE sculpture, first placed in Philadelphia, PA in 1976 as part of the US Bicentennial celebration.  You know what else is worth celebrating?  That this traditional cookie cutter is made here in the USA!
