The Nest: Baby Edition

Any day now we'll be welcoming a new member to our family. Over the past 3 months I have been working on getting his room ready. It is filled with generous gifts, handmade goodies and lots of love! Now it just needs our little bundle of joy to make it complete.

Happy 2012

I am pretty sure I did not have a single blog post in 2011. I am not making any promises that 2012 will be much better, but here I am today with some photos of vintage dresses that I took for my mother-in-law. She wanted pictures before she turned them into a new Communion dress for my niece. My niece will get a dress that is made from her mother and two grandmother's dresses, which brings reduce, reuse, recycle to a whole other level of meaningfulness.

Last weekend my husband and his parents went up to Rockport for the day. It was a beautiful, clear crisp day and being Halloween weekend, and out of season, it was relatively quiet (we didn't have it in us to try Salem). I can't imagine how crowded it gets in Rockport in the summer. It was filled with little shops (literally, small. We felt like giants.) and galleries.

We visited the Rockport Art Association. I really liked the exhibition of Zygmund Jankowski's work. These were two of my favorites:

We walked around, ate veggie dogs (and cheese fries!) at Top Dogs and took some photos. Here are some of my photos from the day:

I picked up some dahlias yesterday. One of my favorite flowers - they almost glow.

Cozy Sunday

Vanilla cinnamon black tea and a fresh cider apple donut. My kind of Sunday.

Mirror, mirror

I felt inspired, by fall, halloween and a poison apple to create a treasury. I was thinking more spooky - Grimm not Disney - Snow White.
