Every year since I was a little girl my mother would give me an ornament on Christmas Eve. It was a tradition and it was something I looked forward to as it would always hold a special meaning for us. She would hand write in her beautiful penmanship a note along with the year. I didn’t […]
Every year since my son Shane was 2 he has had a very strong opinion about what he wanted to be for Halloween. This year he couldn’t make up his mind, but he knew he wanted to be something scary. Well, I didn’t think that was such a good idea for many reasons & keep in mind this […]
How is it that my little boy just started first grade this morning. It seems like just yesterday he was hugging on my leg, barely walking or talking. Yet today he goes out into the world all dressed up in his high tops, plaid shirt & “cool dude” hair, ready and eager to make new […]
City Farmhouse This past Sunday I ran a 5k race in my hometown of Bellport, NY, it was a race I hadn’t ran in 10 years (pre-baby days.) Last July I wanted to run the race but something inside said “you can’t.” I just had my son in March, was still recovering from my c-section. […]
Where do I begin? Where do I start? It’s been a LONG time since my last post. After some thought I decided let me just update everyone! The last year + has been a little crazy but how can I really complain when we have had so many blessings come our way. Last March we […]
Every once in a while in the fall on Long Island we get a surprise, an Indian Summer day. When this happens we take full advantage because the winters can be long, wet, cold and rough! Not too bad for a day in November -68 degrees. So we headed to the beach, the Atlantic Ocean. […]
I am reminded today of what a gift it is to be alive. I woke up this morning to “mom can I come in your bed?” My husband was getting ready for work and I was half asleep, gladly I said “sure.” My son Shane wanted to talk about his Halloween costume. Realizing he wasn’t […]
I know that some of you may have been wondering where the heck I have been. I have been out of the loop big time and I so apologize to all of my blogging friends for being gone for so long. I do have a good excuse. I am 16 weeks pregnant and I have […]
Lory from The Sunshine Studio has been gracious enough to interview me and with that she is doing a giveaway. She will be raffling off either my Maison de Plage-Beach House pillow or my new Tattered Flower Necklace. I hope everyone is having a lovely summer!
I love flowers, smelling them, growing them, looking at them but most of all I like wearing them.Especially in the summer, throw on a cute little dress and a simple flower accessory and you’re ready to go.I thought I would share my new muslin flower necklaces and some other designs that I adore this season. […]
It’s this birthday that I am a little wiser, a little braver, and a lot more grateful for the many blessing I have. I embrace my years and my journey for they are molding me to be better, that is the beauty of “Life Experience.” I realize this year more than any other that my […]
Today is my 36 birthday! My sister had a small birthday party for me, it has been years since I had a birthday party, it was really nice. We were all talking and reminiscing, which I love. I love it because I feel like I missed so much growing up because my siblings were so […]
I went for a run last night to the bay and as I rounded the corner a saw a boat moored off the docks. It was a boat I hadn’t ever seen and it was old & very beautiful. It looked so peaceful out there by itself with the the sun setting in the background(first […]
I have past this house hundreds of times and each time I get just as excited to see it as I did the very first time. It gives me the feeling of “anything is possible.” If this person’s dream came true and he or she was so inspired to write in on their barn and […]
I love the feeling of creating something new for the first time. I could have a million other things to make but sometimes a need just comes over me to make something new & I have to just go, do, design & make, otherwise my mind is restless(it’s a problem). Anyone relate? Anyways, I decided […]
