London – Week 2

I can’t believe it is time to say farewell to London.  In the last week and a half we managed to cover a fair amount of ground with visits to historic sites (St. Paul’s, Buckingham Palace), musicals (The Lion King, The Book of Mormon), centuries “olde” pubs (Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, the Black Friar, the Guinea), outdoor markets (Columbia Road Flower Market, Old Spitalfields), eclectic restaurants and

London – Week 1

I can’t believe it has already been a week since we arrived in London!  My husband is here for work, and I decided to join him, and in total we will be spending about 18 days in this great city!  While the week has flown by, it also seems like we have been here for much longer, as we are really trying to fit in

Fall Home Tour

Halloween is over and the skeletons and spiders are safely packed away, but in our house it is still Fall and the pumpkins and mums will stay out until Thanksgiving!  Therefore today I am sharing a little Fall home tour, before it is officially too late (because I will admit, I, like most of you, am eager for Christmas!).  I started adding Fall decor early

Sneak Peek – Gatsby Party – The Photo Props

What good is a photo booth without some great props?  I don’t know about you, but I love any excuse to dress up and act silly in front of the camera!  Props are also useful as added decor to a party, especially a roaring twenties party because the style was just so great! Since my party is going to be held in the pool area,

I Saw the Sign – PMC Fundraiser

I love any reason to paint a wooden sign, especially when it is for a fundraiser.  Recently, my friend Maura Dacey hosted an event for the Pan Mass Challenge and I was happy to donate an item to such a great cause, and attend such a wonderful event. After I decided on a fitting phrase of “Keep Calm and Ride On”, I got to work sanding down my
