Hello.  My name is Kate Dunphy.  I live on Long Island with my husband, Brian, and our four spirited children.  Our life is pretty crazy.  We are usually on the go, someone is perpetually crying, we lose things all the time (although we haven't lost one of the kids...yet) and we are late a lot (but that's mostly my fault...punctuality is not my forte).  I worked in the fashion industry for fifteen years before trading my glamorous profession in for diaper changing duty, carpooling, and connoisseur of cupcakes.  It's been five years now and I must say, I find baking and gardening incredibly therapeutic, I've realized a can of paint can make anything old and tired look magnificent, and I've tweaked my professional working girl in heels look for a more relaxed no fuss style that can take me from the park to The Park Lane.  I started Taffeta and Tulips as a way to document life's little pleasures.  It's a food, fashion, DIY medley of things that captivate me on a daily basis.  I hope you will feel inspired!
