I was looking on Pinterest and several walkways caught my eye. Look how sweet these are..

My favorite:

All can be found on my Pinterest page.

So pretty. We have two lovely little walkways in the front of our house where the gardens are. My hubby actually collected the rocks (Well, small boulders, really) from around our house and the area. Its not just a walkway but memories of all the times we were working in the garden and hauling the rocks around. It makes it that much more special.

Happy Wednesday.

The Vintage Bazaar

I'm so pleased to tell you that I'll be taking part in the Vintage Bazaar in Salisbury, MA. I'll have a Chestnut Hill Vintage tent and am having so much fun finding treasures for it! If you're from New England I highly recommend making a day or weekend trip of it! It's Saturday and Sunday, June 22nd to 23rd.

I came across it when my friend Jess and I were spending a girls weekend in Newburyport, MA. (Another recommended place to visit, very quaint and charming!) We were on a country bike ride when we saw signs and then a field of tents and gardens. Needless to say, it's a great time with lots of fun for your whole family!

There's so much to look at!!

Thanks for stopping by,

New to the Shop

I'm pretty in love with these items! Especially the Walter M Lowney crate!
The perk to having a shop is that you get first dibs on anything that doesn't sell ;)!

I was experiencing a little work-place harassment while shooting....

She'd gone into our little fish pond earlier and was leaving her prints all over...

Thank you for visiting!

Cocktail Hour

Though I'm not a huge drinker, it's always fun and fancy to sip a lovely cocktail. I found some pretty, interesting recipes on pinterest that are ready for the sunny seasons. Take a look...

One thing I'm a sucker for is Sangria! My favorite is a holiday spiced sangria 
but since it's coming up on summer these are more in season!

White Mascato Sangria with kiwi and citrus!


Do try one.

We All Scream for Ice Cream!

I was soo excited to see that my favorite ice cream spot was officially open today! It's the Northfield Creamie, a sweet little place in the center of Northfield, MA. It was actually named best ice cream spot in New England by Yankee Magazine a few years back. It had been taken over by new owners that sold mostly local goodies and a soft serve with, get this, the highest possible butter fat content....( Bad, I know!) This makes the ice cream sinfully smooth.

It's so. incredibly. delicious.

 I always get the same thing..... a small vanilla cone with coconut dip. (I'd get a larger size if only they could dip it... wink,wink!)This dip isn't the thick hardening kind but a super soft, thin, white chocolatey dip with real toasted coconut flakes. SOOO good.

With the beautiful weather, brightly colored tables and chairs, and Natalie Merchant's folk songs playing over head it was a perfect visit. Avie and I walked there with my little neighbor friend. Her ice cream of choice? Coffee ice cream with chocolate sprinkles AND rainbow sprinkles AND m&ms! Too cute.

I just love this time of year.


PS Writing this reminds me that I never updated about that health food week I had before vacation. Though I shouldn't mix the two topics, ice cream and a It went really well. I have to say I felt great by the end of the week. So much more energy! I definitely think there's so much to be said about eating what's natural and cutting down on the processed foods! Though it was only for that week I try to eat that way often and limit the other stuff. It's all about balance. :) 
(One apple...two ice creams...JUST kidding!)

I absolutely love the nail trends that are popular right now. For lots of reasons. They're colorful, fun, and artsy! I've always loved doing my nails, and friends, but with all these new trends, its even more interesting to experiment and play. Look at these fun mani-shots!

 Simple neutrals....

My favorite, so simple yet sophisticated! 

Then there's some colors and designs that are a little more daring....

How FUN!

Here's a couple helpful How-To's...

Find these and more on my Pinterest page!

And here's one more for laughs....

Too funny!

Happy Wednesday.
