What beauty and charm to wake up to this morning! My in-laws-to-be are from Vermont. I spent Christmas with them. What a beautiful state! I love your little getaway and tag sale. Wish I could go!


Well that is a wonderful way to spend summer days. That trunk is such a thoughtful gift. She is lucky to have a friend like you!


Lovely post!!! As always. Enjoy the rest of your summer season.

Seems like forever since I've been over to visit you here Charlotte, sorry!

The past week and a half has been hellish - David was diagnosed with prostrate cancer last week. WAH! Talk about having the rug pulled out from under. Stunned, shocked, sad ... somehow putting one foot in front of the other and gathering needed info regarding surgery.

Your gorgeous images are balm for the weary soul. So lovely to sit and take them in.

Have a wonderful crafty weekend!


Such a fun post. I do love that decoupaged trunk. Your friend will treasure the love that went into making it.
Sort of lazy days around here - puttering around the house and enjoying the sunshine.

The pretty-up of the cottage must have been such fun and it looks as if you were so creative. It's always rewarding to make up comfortable and charming spaces for visitors. I love having guests.

Loved seeing that adorable bowl I love again.
