I can't wait to share some super exciting news! If you haven't heard already, I've partnered with the owner of Collinsville Watch Company to bring you an exciting, winters almost over GIVEAWAY! By the name of the company and title of this post you have probably already figured out the giveaway item is a watch....but it's not just any watch. It's fun, beautiful and durable, classic timepiece. Accessible, easy to put on and change out the colorful bands and the absolute best part? Born and raised right in my home town of Collinsville, Connecticut.

A few years back I wrote a post about 'my children' (I don't have any actual children, besides my dog Francis) but for a long time in my entry way I had a sepia photograph of three young children, (presumably siblings) that welcomed guests into my home. Many friends and family members thought the framed photograph was creepy (it was fairly large) but I adored it. I don't find it weird at all, considering my mother bought a large multi-photo frame from Kohls and hung it on the staircase but never replaced the stock photos with our own. (insert snickering sound here) we still make jokes about that whenever possible....I will admit the stock family was a lot better looking.....

Saturday was quite a day. It was my only day off last week and we had to run half way across New England to meet the new owner of this lovely kitchenette (and pick up a goodie I snagged on CL)! For anyone who doesn't know what Rhode Island is like, well....blink and you missed it. I grew up there, but on the coastline in Charlestown. Cumberland, where we were destined, is all the way north near the MA border and providence. I don't think i've ever been that far north into RI before and let me tell you, the streets make absolutely no sense...there's no direct way in from CT so we took scenic route 44 the entire way. (some totally awesome antique stops along that route)

Lately I haven't had very good luck at the Goodwill. Their prices have increased substantially on furniture and bric-a-brac items making some things completely unaffordable to purchase and refinish....items that are typically, additionally unworthy. This side table was an exception for sure!

Happy Inauguration day! Wether you're happy, sad or indifferent, I will leave my opinion completely out of it. What I will tell you is that today, for me wasn't worth writing about....it started early working, spilling things, making messes and then forgetting what time I had to be at work. An hour late I rushed out of the house and then realized I locked both my house keys and car keys in the apartment....sigh. Thankfully my brother works about 10 minutes away and was able to swing by with a spare. Not worth elaborating on. So to create a little wintery cheer I thought I would pull some lovely imagery of beautiful outdoor spaces to inspire you for spring/summer 2017. Lets take a look and talk about all the beautiful ways we can enjoy whats to come this year with good friends and cheer.

What is a girl to do with an entire day off from work!? A whole lot of cleaning and throwing stuff away, a hot lunch date and some great antiquing on the farmington! My hot date was my husband Vinnie, whom you see from time to time here. Looking incredibly adorable in his new vest and shirt from Target ( we're easy like that ) and of course his Oakley hat that i'm pretty sure is glued to his scalp. Highlight of my day? The chance to wear my new red corduroys and favorite gap jacket!

Over the weekend I had the utmost pleasure of meeting another 'New England gal' Laura McKittrick! Laura isn't just any other girl though, she IS 'The Greenwich Girl' creator and founder of the popular blog Greenwichgirl.com which is also a popular lifestyle magazine. Laura knows all the coolest places in town and was dropping by the spa for a little R&R....everything was going well until I noticed her eyelashes...her absolutely stunning eyelashes.

For the next few weeks you will most likely find me rambling on about fall. After all it is my favorite season! Next week is my birthday so I'm partial to September, but truly, I am absolutely in love with the changing of this season. Leaves are beginning to fall, and I am in awe starring at their amber and gold hues sparkling in the treetops come evening. It's the perfect time to break out your DIY skills and tackle those seemingly endless weekend projects. Winter's approach will give you a solid deadline and the perfect fall temperatures will yield great painting results! Even if you don't live in a seasonal climate, mentally this time of year can invoke change, the year is wrapping up

Last week, fairly broke and fairly irritated I went into Target with list in hand. 90% of the list were household items, such as, dish soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper and then (ominous clouds cover and scary music plays) a razor. Yes, it was time for a new razor. I can't tell you with enough expression just how much I hate shaving--and more than likely, if you're a woman, or even a man reading this, you probably understand my frustration. So today, reluctantly but necessarily, we will talk about my experience with "Harrys"-- (laughs aloud) literally, that name is intentional right?Best part? It's not made in China!
