The Pioneer Woman – Ree Drummond’s latest cookbook released October 24th 2017

For home cooks, nothing beats preparing a long, leisurely dinner for your family, stirring slowly, seasoning gradually, and savoring every flavorful step.

Screeeeeech! Reality check! Okay, let’s face it: With school, sports, work, obligations, and activities pulling us in a million directions, not many of us can spend that amount of time in the kitchen anymore! What we really need are simple, scrumptious, doable recipes that solve the challenge of serving up hearty, satisfying food (that tastes amazing!) day after day, week after week without falling into a rut and relying on the same old rotation of meals. Cooking should be fun, rewarding, and it definitely should feed your soul (and feed the people in your household in the process)!

Here are some of my favorite make-it-happen dishes, pulled from my nonstop life as a busy wife, mother of four, and lifelong lover of food! The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Come and Get It! includes more than 120 of my best solutions for tasty, wholesome meals (with minimal fuss!) for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. (And let’s not forget the glue that holds it all together: desserts! There are some dandies in here, friends.)

With a mix of categories and flavors that will please everyone, this book has everything you need to whip up delicious, downhome recipes that you can get on the table without a lot of stress. Now that’s something to get excited about.

Available at both Bering’s locations for $29.99

Waterford Crystal Gibson L7 full-scale Electric Guitar

Matt Kehoe Designer and Michael Murphy Sculptor.

one-of-a-kind full-scale design in a series of 6 guitar styles

Waterford Crystal Gibson L7 full-scale Electric Guitar

Words by Matt Kehoe:

Michael and I have worked on many projects in the past, and what can I say about Michael is that he’s only a dream to work with. I think when Michael sees me walking up the Factory floor with a few rolled up A3s under my arm he knows there’s trouble ahead ….Me!

Michael is always the first I call upon when there is a sculpting project on the go. We will sit down and discuss the project intensively. Figuring out how we are going to accomplish the next design.

This had to be special and it is, the Waterford Crystal electric guitar an iconic guitar shape and one of the most challenging projects to date.

It’s a full-scale work of art, with each and every piece hand sculpted and joined together with extreme precision.  Nothing else will do as Waterford is known for its design and quality.

Many Artisans played an important part in creating such a beautiful piece. With a project like this all hands were on deck as it is new and different so everyone wants to get it right.

The Guitar took 12 weeks from start to finish.  From design ideas, blocks of blown crystal, straight to sculpting and on to the cutting shop. The intensity of the sculpting some days would leave Michael walking away with aching arms from a hard day’s work of shaping and smoothing the crystal. When each piece is shaped it is ready for the pattern to be marked on.  The pattern has to be right, because once it is cut, it is cut, and there’s no going back. So on to one of our greatest Master cutters Tommy Power with over 45 years’ experience.  This is someone I can hand over a piece to be cut and I can walk away with confidence knowing it will be cut to perfection, and yes it is!

So all of the sections of the guitar are designed, sculpted, cut and after 10 weeks of hard work the guitar parts are ready to be bonded together.  Again Michael’s expertise is shown here when he bonds each piece with meticulous precision.

When the final stage is complete and after12 weeks of intense work, a masterpiece has been created and we at Waterford are very proud of this beautiful piece of Crystal.  It was certainly a wonderful challenge to accomplish and we know it will go to a good home.

The Price Behind The Art

FullSizeRender (23)

Native Houstonian, Katherine Price is painting the town with her incredible pieces. The word is spreading quickly about Katherine’s creations and for good reason. We are thrilled to note that Bering’s will be carrying her artwork and to kick-off her launch will be hosting a Meet the Artist Trunk Show with Katherine to share our enthusiasm with our customers.

Please mark your calendar for her show, set for June 18, 11 – 3 at our 6102 Westheimer store location.

It is always intriguing learning about the talent behind the artwork. We love a good story, as it makes the art even more appealing. Katherine agreed to answer a few questions we had about her work and hope you enjoy our Q & A dialogue:

FullSizeRender (15)11

Artist, Katherine Price

Q: Where do you find inspiration for your art?

A: I find my inspiration in the everyday. All you need to do open your eyes and breathe it in.

Art is my true passion. I love how there are no rules or boundaries in art. Painting allows me to share a bit of my soul with others. Where words fail, colors and strokes convey. I love the freedom of creative exploration!

Q: It is impressive that you are able to find time for your art with serving as the art teacher at The Fay School as well as raising your son Porter. When did you decide to start painting your pieces to sell for everyone to enjoy?

A: Off and on for a few years now. However, in January 2016 I decided to start selling my art as a secondary outlet from my current job. I started selling to local stores and have sold commissioned pieces to numerous homes across the Houston area.

Q: What would you say is your artistic technique when painting pieces?

A: I only use acrylic paint with either gold or silver leaf. I fell in love with my palette knife and only paint with it on all of my pieces. When I am in a zone, I sometimes use my bare hands as well. I find the purity of colors to be more rewarding this way!

Q: How do you go about selecting colors for your paintings?

A: I mainly use calming or soothing colors in my work. The colors are reflective of what I am feeling at the moment. However, my commissioned pieces often start off a bit differently in that the client tells me the colors and then sets me free to do my paintings!

Every piece truly is a labor of love. My personal goal, both commissioned and non-commissioned, is that my art speaks to the person it is meant for! …That is the power of art, and it is definitely difficult letting go of some of my pieces!

Q: With such incredible success early on in selling your pieces, what do you envision the future to look like for Katherine Price Art?

A: In the future, I hope and envision my art being carried in stores not only in Houston, but in other major cities too. I would love for an interior designer to feature my art in a Southern Living, Traditional Home, Veranda or Architectural Digest magazine photo-shoot one day! I am going to continue creating commissioned pieces for customers as well.

Looking forward, it is also meaningful to note that I recently donated a piece of art to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man and Woman of the Year Gala. I will continue to donate art, because I think it is very important to give back to others!

Q: What effect or emotion do you hope your art conveys/is felt by others?

A: I want my art to express a sense of calmness and relaxation. However, the feelings invoked by art are all personal to the individual.

Q: Having grown up in Houston, do you happen to have any stories/memories of coming into Bering’s as a child, adding to the excitement of now selling your art with us?

A: My family has been shopping at Bering’s for the past 30 years. I can’t remember a Christmas or birthday that didn’t involve a gift from Bering’s. My adorable mother has been with Bering’s for the past 15 years as well. I am thrilled to have a trunk show at Bering’s and beyond blessed for my God given talent to paint and allow others to enjoy my work!

A Pop Star Worthy Girl’s Birthday Party

It isn’t just everyday that you have a birthday, and even less frequent when you have the opportunity to celebrate the special day with two of your best friends! Bianca, Bridget, and Chloe (and their amazing mothers) worked hard to ensure their special day would not soon be forgotten by throwing a pop star themed party at Houston’s Hotel Derek.

The Birthday Girls, Bridget, Chloe & Bianca!

The pop star theme was even more magical and vivid thanks to Bering’s stationery department. Our stationers customized this invitation suite and think they aced it!

And as any pop-star would arrive, the party kicked off with a ride to the party in a limousine! The limo dropped the girls off at Houston’s Hotel Derek:
