holiday loves

Holiday shopping is done for all near & dear. Christmas cards have been mailed. Wrapping is in process. Deco is done. Tree to make pretty. And last but not least a look at part of my visual x-mas list, I don't need all but anything from which ever pictures he may fancy will do. Can't wait, 6 more days.

burlap fun

My mom & I have collected quite a few unique burlap bags and this has been one of our visions. She has already covered over a dozen chairs for different projects and staging jobs, they've all come out great by the way. We also have made pillows and other accessories too. I've come across these chairs on a flea market website and I'm absolutely floored at the going price! I'm lucky and relieved I have such a crafty woman by my side because I'm sure I'd be paying the big dollar for it if in any other situation. Ahhh pays to be nifty =)

love vintage market sundays

We got to the market for the later half of the day, we enjoyed all the outdoor art, crafts, music. We met up with two artist-friends that had set up shop and chit chatted a bit about who has the best finds, most unique talent and well the rest just gossip. It was good to hear how well their art had been selling and made me give Greggers a big nudge of encouragement later (for he is my fav artist of all time) for doing more of what comes so natural to him. After the great outdoors environment we headed into my place of love, it sucks me in and I feel at home with all the vintage finds. Swear I was not meant to come in this world in the 80's. I snapped photos and took it all in, bought a few trinkets and felt my weekend become complete.. all while Gregg played atari, which almost made it home with us. I'm sure his fingers are crossed its still there next weekend. Well the wheels are def spinning on our holiday crafts and homemade items to come, the market really gave that extra touch of inspiration.

Jake & I are finally home from a long week of house sitting on the north shore. It sure had its pros and cons... I will not miss the traffic I endured every afternoon up RT1, total nightmare. The time away did have me missing the country life, a lot! We were on 2+acres all week where Jake could roam free, we had endless supply of veggies from a large garden, no cell phone reception (which made me shaky the first two days) that I slowly embraced, hammock, fresh air & the calming sound of crickets at night

I'm back, it's been some time... Fast paced city life sucked me in & distracted me from my writing, antique rehabs, photography & cozy office nook. I'm pulling my vintage chair up to my desk and staying this time around... At least in between commercials, love the Kardashians, can't peel my eyes from the TV right now.
