Someday, My Prints Will Come

Botanical prints are synonymous with Palm Beach style, and antique prints mingle beautifully in the island’s Mediterranean-inspired homes. Collectors and designers, take note: Through the end of October, the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden’s art gallery has mounted an exhibit of rare antique engravings, lithographs and architectural renderings dating from the 16th through 19th centuries.

The works are displayed in frames of mahogany, burl wood, gold and silver leaf, tortoise shell, and marquetry, handmade by Giovanni Bello of Florence, Italy. Many include hand-painted mats.

Gallery talks will be held on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at noon.

The Ann Norton Sculpture Garden is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Admission is free for members; $10 for adults; $8 for seniors; and $7 for children and students.

Back to Basics (To Help the Homeless)

PBBOR sock drive

As part of its annual charitable giving, our publisher (the Palm Beach Board of Realtors®) has organized a T-Shirt & Sock Drive to benefit the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County and the 1,500 men, women and children who are homeless on any given day in our community.

Providing essentials isn’t flashy, but it’s so important. Without socks and underthings, it’s just that much harder for kids to go back to school and adults to find meaningful work.

Here’s what our Realtor® members have donated so far:

  • 166 t-shirts
  • 93 pairs of underwear
  • 219 pairs of socks
  • Several generous cash donations, which we’ll use to go shopping and fill in the gaps.

The drive will run through August 15. To participate, please drop off donations of new socks, underwear and white t-shirts of all sizes, for both children and adults, at the Palm Beach Board of Realtors office (140 Royal Palm Way, Suite 205, Palm Beach). You can also mail a cash donation, and we’ll do the shopping for you. Please make checks out to Palm Beach Board of Realtors, and write “Homeless Coalition” in the memo.

The Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County serves and supports homeless families and individuals locally, and leads in policy-making, strategy and advocacy on the state and national levels.

The Palm Beach Board of Realtors® is a trade organization serving hundreds of real estate professionals on the island of Palm Beach and in surrounding areas.

For more information, please call Executive Vice President Tracy Mallette at 561-659-3810, or email her at tracy@pbbor.com.

Eau My! Five Forbes Stars

Eau 3

Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, at 100 South Ocean Boulevard in Manalapan (pictured above and below), has earned the coveted fifth star from the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide, and the Eau Spa retained the five-star rating it earned last year.

Eau 2Eau Palm Beach joins The Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach as the island’s only five-star hotels. Statewide, only five other hotels can boast the honor: Acqualina Resort & Spa, the Manadarin Oriental, The Setai, and the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, all in Miami; and The Ritz-Carlton in Naples.

The Breakers, with four stars, is the other ranked hotel on the island. Ranked restaurants include the Four Seasons’ Jové Kitchen & Bar and Café Boulud, both with four stars.

According to Forbes Travel Guide, five-star destinations must be outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities. Forbes defines four-star recipients as exceptional properties, offering high levels of service and quality of facility to match.

Lady Osita

We laughed out loud when we saw the back cover of the Shiny Sheet this morning.

OsitaThe object of our delight? Osita, a miniature Chihuahua owned (and styled) by Brygida Trzaska, executive assistant at Linda R. Olsson, Inc., a Palm Beach Real Estate Guide advertiser. Osita was featured among the furry participants in the 23rd Annual Worth Avenue Pet Parade.

Brygida was aiming for a Lady Gaga look for Osita, and topped it off with a blonde ‘do custom-made by famed wigmaker Ruth Regina. Snuggles, another of Brygida’s Chihuahuas and a former best in show winner, was attired at the other end of the fashion spectrum; she wore Burberry, spectacles and pearls.
