As we age, so do our parents and aunts and uncles. Sometimes it bcomes are responsibility to care for them in addition to other responsibilities: working, raising our own kids, traveling, etc. Have you had to assume this responsibility and adjust to the stress? Let's share our experiences here, either how we coped or didn't cope with the added stress.

We're proud to announce that we've just finished a new video we hope will interest you as a fashionista. This is my recommended method for packing clothes to prevent wrinkling and improve the unpacking process. This concept is based on many years of business and leisure travel.
Some of you many disagree and feel you have a better method. With the whole summer travel season opening ahead of us, let's generate a dialogue about preferred packing techniques that work for you and may help others.
Please watch this short video (click on pic), then make your comments below. Thanks.

It's only been a few months since we welcomed you to the House of Alexie, our online boutique. Now we're proud to announce the grand opening of our new line of ladies' fashions. This has been a long-time dream of mine, and I've found the perfect platform to accomplish it.
I've spent the last few months working with several distributors to bring you a line of clothing that is elegant but trendy, classy but glam and fashionable yet so inexpensive. I've combed through hundreds of pages of fashions and looked at literally thousands of dresses, blouses, shirts, pants, shorts, rompers, skirts, hats and plus sizes to find those that meet this criteria. And this is just the beginning. We plan to bring you more fashions and new lines: swim-suits, jewelry and later coats and other outerwear.
We still carry our line of quality books and our hand crafted knit wear and have expanded them as well. We're now featuring the knitted shrug or bolero in your choice of cotton or polyster, and they are so perfect for a cool summer night!
Please come explore our "house". You can shop safely at this site. Your privacy is strictly protected, and your transactions are safely processed through Paypal, one of the safest online banks in the country.

Hi Everyone, Welcome to the House of Alexie.
We've been working really hard to bring you a fine selection of quality books for children and adults. These books each have a mission: to entertain, educate and inspire. Whether you're reading an historical fiction like Tagger, Alone Along the Mystic River that inspires you to make your dreams come true or the Way of the Forest which explores the world around us, we guarantee you will be entertained. Read our books, share our books and read the children's books to your kids and grandkids. There's nothing like a book!!!
And now we've added fashionable knitted hats and accessories to our store.
The pony tail hat that we specialize in is a beautifully designed and knitted-by-hand beret or tobogan hat that has a special knitted ribbed opening in the back. Just pull your pony tail through this hole and tie the attached ribbon around it for a secure fit that endures even the harshest breeze. But what you'll like best about the hat is the built-in earmuff pads that lay right over your ears and block the breeze from your sensitive earlobes.
Please spend some time in our store, explore enjoy. We welcome your comments or suggestions.
