Ladies and gentlemen, the race has been won. And the contest almost was too! If you missed the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, here’s a two-minute replay of the race…

It was an exciting experience right up unto the finish line this year with Nyquist and Exaggerator storming down the track with just mere inches between them and the win.  Which is exactly what happened in Ms. Jeannie’s Derby contest also. While no one picked Nyquist as a winner, there were two readers who both placed favorites on Exaggerator as the horse to beat. How exciting, because he almost was!

Official 2016 Derby placers: Nyquist (1st) Exaggerator -pictured above (2nd) and Gun Runner (3rd).

Since there was no official winner, in the land of Ms. Jeannie, prizes selected for this year’s blog contest will carry over to next year, where we can all try again guessing for glory.  In the meantime, a big congrats goes out to blog readers Amanda and Renee for both selecting Exaggerator.  Will they be able to duel it out next year for permanent status in the winner’s circle? Anticipation is already building and we are still 360 days away from the next Derby date! Oh my.

Outside of the racetrack,  a horse of a different sort leads the pack of new items that just galloped their way into the bookshop. Browse a bit here…

This collection of items is all about easy, effortless living and decorating. As we gear up for farmer’s market season, the vintage cookbooks provide new inspiration in the kitchen while the wall and bookshelf art provide instant (ready to hang!) style.

If something catches your eye click on the corresponding link below the picture for more info or reply to this post and Ms. Jeanne will be happy to place it on reserve for you.

A big, big thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Derby contest and for taking the time to pop-in and cast your vote. Cheers to you for keeping life fun and interesting!
