Confession…I have a pillow problem 🙂 The more, the better, right? I’m certain a sofa is more inviting with stacks of throw pillows. Hemp linen and grainsack pillows are quite an addiction for me. Ironstone…well, it just speaks for itself. Beautiful, chippy, and crazed. Too bad I don’t find ironstone easily around here. I’m thankful […]
So, you want to know what’s growing in our Potager? Well, to begin with, lots of herbs. And this Spring, I’m using one of my favorite vintage finds as an herb garden display…a Ferry-Morse Seed cart.

In the late afternoon as the sun begins to sink below the treeline…this is where you’ll find me. I love to spend time each evening walking through the garden. Here is a bridal wreath bush. It’s taller than I am now. We don’t have any veggies planted yet. Tomatoes, peppers…we’ll plant those real soon, I […]Continue Reading...
I believe in having fresh flowers on our table inside…it’s one of my favorite decorating tips. Candles and fresh flowers. When I grow up, I want to be a florist 😉 I love cutting all types of blooms and arranging them just so for little centerpieces. I thought three little goblets would look pretty full […]
