New England Salvaged Decor Inspiration

What do you find most intriguing when on vacation?  The scenery, the people, the food?  Call me a little neurotic, but often times, while on vacation, I can’t help but pay the most attention to the (I’ll use the term loosely)…decor.

Gloomy Fall Gallery Wall and Route 66 Talking Crow

Pontiac Illinois: a Motherload of the Mother Road {Route 66}

One Hip Cup of Coffee at Barista Parlor in Nashville

5 Tips for Choosing a Camping Resort for Your Vacation Home

Last weekend our friends Rich and Jamie invited us up to their vacation home for the weekend.  It’s not a vacation home in the sprawling ocean side mansion sense of the word, but more along the lines of a parked trailer home located within a seasonal camping resort.  Fish Lake Beach is the camping resort […]

Flower Pot Bread at Patti’s Settlement: LBL part5

If you went out to dinner at a restaurant and the waiter put down a flower pot with a loaf of bread baking right out of it, wouldn’t you do a double take?  I certainly did when I sat down to dinner with my son last spring at Patti’s Settlement, located just outside of Land […]
