Fun shopping at my favorite store....Oliver's Fine Gardens & Gifts

 I brought home this French Basket

Love the blue cupboard...grabbed one of the last blue bell jars to fill with lavender.

I have been eyeing this lamp and the zinc table for awhile now.  It's still there. 

There was a whole room of these lovely coffee bags for a dollar. I am thinking place mats.
Love them and brought home two.  I must go back! 

Various size pots....thinking to fill these babies up with succulent plants.

Love the wooden sign above the the blue cupboard.

Here is another Fresh Eggs tin sign...Love it and that blanket has been there for awhile.  It was in the basket I bought.

Here is another one of these coffee bags.  Loved the hot pink letters and blue stripe.  Definitely a pillow cover. 

Here are more goodies.  Sorry for the blurriness.  I just love that window pane. 

Love these and my little one sneaking up the stairs.

Antique picnic basekt and the pretty vase holding the star fish bouquet.

More goodies......

Another one of those zinc tables.

Have a fabulous Labor Day weekend!  

I'll show you next week my finds from our vacation in Nantucket!  
It was a lovely August!

Summer fun!

Summer is the best.....especially the weekends when everyone is home.

The kids got their grown up bikes this past weekend and so did we.  

The kids are having a blast. 

Going for bike rides around the neighborhood and 

down the street from us is this great cranberry bog with trails. 

The kids love it!  

I have been on foot walking behind them with my little one on her 

small bike with training wheels.  

We saw this great vintage bike with the cute basket.

We have a farmers market not too far from us and it would be fun to ride there  

and pick up a few goodies.
It's too bad the bike was already sold when we got there. 

The owner of the bike shop showed us some other vintage looking bikes and 

loved this one.

What do you think? 

Hollywood cruiser by Schwinn

It arrives 3 to 5 days.  

Can't wait...

Also found a cute Nantucket basket to go with it!  

 We set up our patio for movie nights.

We watched the new released Three Stooges..

We thought it was funny.  The kids enjoyed it and 

then we watched the originals.

Fun weekend! 

Have a good week.

Our rhododendrons are growing crazy.

They create a beautiful wall blocking out the woods that lead to the street.  

Sad to say that the petals are starting to fall off.  

They only last for two weeks. 

We have pink and white.

Great views  from our windows in the dining room and kitchen. 

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend.  

Here are few pics...

Have a good week!

We had a beautiful weekend in Nantucket.

It was the start of the season with the wine festival!

Lots of changes going on with new restaurants.

Sad to see the old ones go.
One of our favorites is still there.  

We kicked off the summer early with friends 


The Club Car

The only place that was serving drinks at 11:00 a.m.

Spicy Bloody Mary... 

Best lobster roll so far...

Lots of sunshine and good times. 

Stayed at the beautiful  White Elephant


Grey shingled homes, 

captain's stair cases,

picturesque landscapes of white hydrangeas and lilac bushes 

everywhere you walk. 

Cisco Brewery where time stops. 

Shopping was done on the last day.

Picked up some scented candles,  

costume jewelry (always fun),

 and these cute coasters 

which I will show later in the week.

Mimosa Anyone?


Vacationing in Sunny Coronado California.

We are back at the Del.....

Views from the deck.....

Relaxing, swimming, and taking walks.....

Can't get enough of the picturesque Pacific Ocean

and the beautiful white sand and flowers.

Every year they keep growing their herbs and fruits

which is used for their

signature Restaurant 1500 Ocean.

A dream of mine to be able to grow herbs in this manner.

Some day.......


Strawberries and lavender

Mint Chocolate...smells good.


Happy Spring Break!

It's Mimosa time...
