Gift ideas for Romeo

Ok Romeo, if you're out there, I know you are probably stumped on what to get me for Valentine's Day. So I created a blog post with a few little suggestions.

First, I love this necklace from Jen Parrish of Parrish Relics. I already own 3 of her designs but don't let that stop you. All her pieces are so unique and beautiful.

This scatter rug from Ballard Designs would look absolutely fabulous in my french inspired kitchen.

Well it looks like we're in for more snow and cold weather here in the Boston area so these boots will get a lot of use! And if you are the frugal type, these boots are on clearance at Eddie Bauer. Size 7 1/2 please.

What are you hoping for this Valentine's Day?


I LOVE the boots. They would look so neat with jeans. There is a print on etsy that I'm eying for Valentine's Day. I've given several hints but I'm not sure if he heard me. Sometimes I think I'm just white noise. LOL

Thank you so much!
I am actually vending at a craft show for those last minute Romeo's the day before Valentine's Day!

Do stop in if you are in Boston on that Sunday!

love that rug...
I love surprises! The boots would be nice...

Is that Romeo himself in the header??? If so, I'm in love! He doesn't have to come bearing gifts, just fur.
What a handsome guy!!!
I want those boots too. Maybe our Romeo's could club together, if they were feeling particularly frugal, and we could share them!!!!

From my Romeo out there, I'd like a set of pearl teardrop earrings, a Cath Kidston day bag, and a bottle of Chanel No. 5

... Is that so much to ask? :) ♥

I love the boots! Wouldn't they look cute with some straight leg jeans! That necklace is also pretty nice! Have a great day!

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
