We interrupt our regularly scheduled Kips Bay Decorator Show House coverage to thank Mother Nature for hearing our pleas and warming up the New York weather! The sun is shining! The birds are chirping! The tulips on Park Avenue are blooming! I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday present! Happy Spring!

    Well Heather, Happy Birthday. Celebrating a birthday in the warmth of the sun, with the birds chirping, and flowers blooming doesn’t get much better.
    I was in NYC this past weekend and endured miserable weather on Saturday and cold weather on Sunday. Boo. It is just about time for Spring.
    I headed back to Texas for the warmer weather.

    Happy birthday Heather!
    I am so happy to see spring weather arrive! It’s finally time to put the balcony furniture outside and enjoy a morning coffee in the sun!

    I have loved your pleas to Mother Nature – and she was listening !! Wow – you have got some clout! Your tag says birthday – but that was written yesterday – so is the big day today or yesterday? At any rate – have a wonderful Birthday – you certainly earned your candles THIS year.

    Happy Birthday Heather! Hope it will be everything you want, and more. Henry James once said “Live life like a work of art.” I know you truly understand this, because your post to me (and many others I am sure) is constant inspiration to my every day living. Salut!
