Admission is $7 per person for guests 1 year of age and older.
Explorium of Lexington• 440 W. Short Street • Lexington, KY 40507 • (859) 258-3253

April 24 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

If you have ever wanted to hold a walking stick, eat a strawberry-flavored cricket, or look at a scorpion up close, then come to the Explorium's Bugs All Day event. Learn to identify insects from other creepy creatures, explore insect's special place in the environment and get answers from special guests from the University of Kentucky Department of Entomology and All-Rite Pest Control.

How cute would your little granddaughter look in this dress at the Emplorium? The bugs may flock to her! Just teasing! This little dress looks like it is right out of the garden. The Childrens Emplorium Museum opened in 1990 and I am telling you they make learning fun!

I Have A New Kentucky Love!

You know that feeling when you have met someone who gives you the butterflies? The feeling that you can't get enough? Well I have a new lover. Sssshhhhh don't tell my husband. He would be jealous. Why you ask? Because they don't have Smashburger in Southern California where he is working right now!


I love their burgers and all the fixings. Its always a decision process. The fries are to die for. Can't decide if I should do regular potato or sweet potato. Take a friend and this way you can share!

These put In and Out Burgers to shame. I have a friend who says there is a TK Burger that may some stiff competition. I have yet to try. Next time I am back in California I will give it a go and see who is best.

I crave these every day now.

Step Into My World!

I love it when you stop by my store and look at all the clothes I have for sale. I have all sizes and color combinations.

What some of you may not know is this small fact: I create, sew, and produce the Cradle Will Rock line.

I sometimes feel that this is my best friend because I see it more than I see anyone!

The fun part is the colors and all the miles of ribbon and thread:

The finished product is just as beautiful as these flowers don't you think?

I often wonder what inspires fabric makers to create the beautiful patterns I choose...

I love flowers and I love fabric. I hope your little girl loves both as much as I do!

I am anxious to find a fabric that has this flower in it. I just love this! Amazing isn't it?

If you find yourself driving down the road, walking your dog, or sitting in a park and you see some of the beauty that surrounds you called flowers... then take a look at this page which is just for us in Kentucky. They show us all of the flowers that are blooming during the early spring, late spring, summer and fall... even winter!

Big News Day!

This morning we have a few showers but the good news is that the Kentucky Derby is just around the corner.

I read that the British jockeys who will be entering the Derby are stuck in Europe because of the volcano that is causing all sorts of havoc with the airlines. Mother Nature!

And I bet the reason the 3.3 magnitude earthquake happened in Maryville, TN is because of what is happening with our planet. Volcano's erupting, earthquakes all over the world, and now we had one close to Kentucky! Go figure! I left California thinking I left those behind but no! They are following me!

Today we are having a few showers. But the past few days have been just lovely. Beautiful sunshine, flowers a blooming, and everyone outside walking their dogs and bicycling! It makes you want to sing and laugh!

If you are going to the Derby you will need a hat. The Derby is known for hat wearing ladies. This recently famous trio escorted by one of the worlds oldest bachelors (Hugh Hefner) wearing their Kentucky Derby best!

So get your little lady a hat from me! You can adorn it with a big flower for the special occasion. Come check out my assortment. They are nearly like the real thing!

If you want to do something special for your Mom, your wife, or someone special in your family; Mothers Day is right around the corner. These photos are compliments of Zoombug Photos. Give her a call and make your appointment for your shoot today!

More Beautiful April Weather!

It looks like more April weather will continue this week. Being from California, I can get used to this! Makes me love Lexington even more! The beautiful flowers that are blooming, the blue grass is prettier than ever.

We might see a stray shower or two tomorrow but with this type of weather you should be in my store buying up these summery dresses. One thing for sure is that the weather will get warmer as we head into summer.

Mothers Day is coming. Buy yourself and your little girl a "Mommy and Me" dress. Maybe you need to do it for your wife and little angel? We have so many choices. Modern and Chic, Vintage and Shabby Chic. Which is your preference?
