Everything is coming up...Radishes

Everything is coming up...Radishes

  

Did you know we always include something special when you buy something from The Perfect Provenance?  This month, it is radish seeds perfect for planting for great fall veggies.

Did you know?
  • That the word "radish" comes from the Latin “radix,” meaning “root,” and the Greek word "raphanus," which translates to "quickly appearing” may have to do with the fact that radishes are one of the fastest growing vegetables when they're planted from seed.
  • With a very low calorie count, less than 20 calories in an entire cup, radishes are a great way to add nutrients, fiber and tons of flavor to your meals. 
  • The older, or longer it is allowed to grow, the spicier the radish.
  • Radishes lower body temperature and relieve inflammation from fevers. A good method of intake is drinking radish juice mixed with black salt, and since they act as good disinfectants, radishes also fight infections that can cause fever.
  • A half cup of radishes per day in a salad or just as a snack is nearly 15% of your daily intake of Vitamin-C

Happy eating!!!

The Perfect P Blog



I am absolutely thrilled to be previewing just a sneak peek of our new company, and one of our new collections –The Smile Collection. At The Perfect Provenance, launching this fall in Greenwich, and online nationwide, we will invite you, the visitor, to experience something truly inspiring. Our goal is to bring the best of a museum experience through exhibitions, events and cultural experiences, and couple that with a pleasant and inviting retail environment. We hope our hand picked selection of items will entice and intrigue you to visit us again and again.  Whenever possible, we bring you the story behind the product -- the provenance of how and where our product was made.
For the Smile Collection, our organic tees are made by our partner Farm Fresh Clothing in Sonoma, California with water based inks. Sonoma is a place that is near and dear to my heart, where my husband and I celebrated our wedding reception and a place I return to again and again with my family. It is only fitting that this was the home of the tee shirt company we found to make our first products.  
Our beautiful Belgium linen tote bags are made by Ankasa in India by some of the most incredible artisans in the business.  We are so proud to be working with them on our new line and look forward to showcasing our partner products as well as their line of beautiful items.
Giving back will be an integral part of our company’s mission and I hope we will shine a light on so many worthwhile organizations through partnerships on our exhibitions.  Personally, I am a passionate advocate for many causes, but most especially, for the disabled as my own children have faced numerous medical challenges. Our Smile Collection of products including those previewed on this site, is the next step in our commitment to supporting Operation Smile worldwide, a cause I care deeply about. I was introduced to Operation Smile through my children’s surgeon in 2010 and have been an avid supporter since then.
Last week in New York City on May 14, we previewed our new Smile Collection at the Operation Smile gala.  It was a night full of love, smiles and happiness.  The event was hosted by the beautiful Kate Walsh with special guest Eli Manning.  My boys are huge Giants fans and they loved meeting Eli.  

 

Thank you for visiting our site and I hope you enjoy our first collection.

Cheers,

Did You Know? World Smile Day is October 2nd

According to Wikipedia -- World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday in the month of October every year. This year, World Smile Day is October 2nd, 2015.  The idea of World Smile Day was coined and initiated by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist fromWorcester, Massachusetts. Harvey Ball is known to have created the Smiley Face in 1963. 
The World's first World Smile Day was held in the year 1999 and has been held annually since.
After Harvey died in 2001, the "Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation" was created to honour his name and memory. The slogan of the Smile Foundation is "improving this world, one smile at a time." The Foundation continues as the official sponsor of World Smile Day each year.
The message of the World Smile Day is "Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile."  So to celebrate, The Perfect Provenance will offer $5 OFF any order from now until October 3rd when you use the code #SMILEMORE at checkout!!!
