My husband, my son & I drove out to the North Fork of Long Island on Sunday for Mother’s Day. We were on our way to my husband’s parent’s house. We were enjoying the drive as always, farms, vineyards, open space, old beautiful architecture and quaint historic towns. My son was watching a movie so my husband actually had a chance to catch up and talk (big fan of DVD players on long trips). I was telling him that I wished I had more local creative friendly relationships. So, I on whim said “can you make a left here?” We drove, not quite sure what I was looking for, but then suddenly I said “stop, turn around.” I found the most amazing shop, White Flower Farmhouse. Completely me in every way, I wanted one of everything. Sometimes you walk into a place and you just know it’s special, that was this store. It was warm, cozy and comfortable, a place you want to stay & look at every little detail. Two ladies run it Lori and Megan who are super nice. They have created a nostalgic feel in their shop, which is what I love the most. They have reused, recycled, and repurposed objects into beautiful pieces of art for the home. Here are some of my favorites.
I am off to Haven tomorrow so I thought I would pop in before I left. This is my 2nd year going and I am super excited. For anyone who isn’t familiar with this blogging conference, its focus is DIY and decorating & let me just say this is such an amazing experience if you are a blogger whose focus is that. The nice thing is everyone is in the same genre, so there is so much to talk about, blog goals, techniques, SEO, decorating, DIY but for me the best part are those little conversations I get to have with friends old and new that make me feel connected and a part of something much bigger.
