Afternoon Sun

On Friday, as soon as I got home, I sat out on my front porch. It was so nice to soak up the late afternoon sun. It was certainly a HOT weekend, high 80’s and pretty humid.


Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Lately, Boston has been having great weather, high 70’s/low 80’s and sunny. The weather looks perfect for this (long) weekend. Today my work is closing early, at 2:30, I can’t wait to get my weekend started; kicking off the summer.

This summer I look forward to spending lots of time on our front porch, as its our first summer having access to a porch. I’ve already done some decorating with these flowers that I planted;

Currently we have some red and blue folding chairs on the porch, but I would love to have this hand-made unique swing out there! I entered to win it via the Free People Blog website. I hope I win!!

‘Tis the Season

Last year I decided I wanted to make and decorate a gingerbread house. Unfortunately I decided too late, and could not find any in stores, unless I wanted to pay $40 for a fancy one from Williams & Sonoma. This year, I got mine early, from Market Basket for $7.99. The house pieces, frosting/glue and candies were all in the kit, you just needed to assemble the house and decorate it! Things were not theat simple, I could not keep the roof together and ended up running out of the glue/frosting. I even tried to use crazy glue for the candy, but that didn’t work well sticking to a cookie. At least my cats were entertained with fallen candies…

Unpacking & Coldness**

Almost two weeks ago, I’ve moved to a new location, I literally moved from one “town” to another “town”:-) I love my new town, it is very cultural, and offers many ethnic food shops which I absolutely love. Upon moving and while unpacking, I’ve come to the conclusion that I have too many clothes! (*Insert applause from my husband since I have finnaly realized this*!!) Luckily, the new apartment has come with two closets (“wow!”) which is better than our previous one closet apartment. Now, we each have our own closet! (*insert applause from myself*) However, I honestly do have too many clothes, and too many scarves!!

The apartment we moved into is a rennovated house built in 1910, I can’t help but wonder if the door knobs are authentic, they are so pretty.

Thank you Martha Stewart, for helping an unorganized girl get organized!

**Tittled “Unpacking & Coldness” because I’ve been doing a  lot of unpacking and todays forecast read “28 degrees, feels like 12 degrees”!!

How do you guys stay organized? I still have so many sheets and towels with no place to store them, I am thinking of purchasing some decorative boxes to store them in; (source: homedecormaker)

Happy Halloween!

It’s fun getting things for your home to decorate for the major Holidays such as  Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving. I love that this Halloween decor can stay out through the Thanksgiving Holiday:

Freshly Chopped, A Fresh Start

So much has happened since my last post here. I’ve put photography on hold for awhile since recenly planning my August 2010 wedding 🙂

Spring is here, summer is right around the corner, and I couldn’t be happier –

October Snow?!

The other day it was snowing! This is a rare occurence for this time of year in Massachusetts. It was at first raining and then it turned to snow, snowflakes that looked like cotton balls! Luckily, nothing stuck to the ground though because of the wetness from the rain.October 21 008October 21 012

October –

So I know this picture looks like it has nothing to do with Fall, but for some reason I can’t help but think of the seasons changing when I look at this photo…maybe its just because my apartment is so cold! (I do prefer cold over hot!)

So, to make this more fun, Can You Guess What This Is?


Fall in New England is one of my favorite times…more pictures to come very soon:)
