I love flowers, fresh flowers of any kind but especially purple 🙂 Below are some from my yard and some from my neighbors. My neighbor made two arrangements for me, she is a natural and I keep telling her she missed her calling! (Thanks Diane!)
As I continue the process of “cleaning out” I am faced with the same question, “Keep or Don’t Keep”? I have reduced quite a bit over the last 8 years since returning from Switzerland and a pretty minimalist lifestyle but am still amazed at how much “stuff” we still have! I am now finally sorting through my craft area. My of my, do I have craft stuff! Border maker and cartridges – Keep!
H wall decor…it’s a maybe.
I purchased a new book and although I have been doing a lot of what it recommends it still has been helpful.
Finally started planting our garden. Lettuce in this bed.
Blueberries have blossoms so fruit should be next.
The butterfly hangs nearby.
Spring isn’t my favorite season but I do love how plants, etc. that have been dormant over the winter slowly come back to life. I bought a plant a few years ago, thinking it was an annual and have been pleasantly surprised that it has come back each year.
My neighbor knows how much I love purple flowers and brought me some from her yard 🙂
Gaslights along the main streets with flower baskets.
Another purple flower blooming.

It’s not secret that I love LL Bean and have for many, many years. Our tradition of making the trek to the flagship store in Freeport, ME began in 2010 and something I look forward once or twice a year. Seeing my “Bean” Bags makes me smile.
And I love that they monogram for free. Our new organic cotton sheets are really nice.
The area is so beautiful and slowing coming back to life.
And I always enjoy seeing the Bean Bear carvings in the parking lot.
I swear I was a New Englander in another life as soon as I feel so at peace here…I would split my time if it were just up to me 🙂
I don’t like Apple Juice but I do like apples. My latest favorite is Honeycrisp but organic versions are hard to find so I tend to fall back to Gala’s or Fuji’s.
I have never been a wine drinker, occasional sweet white but my husband loves his red wine. Cabernet Sauvignon, his favorite. Recently he was gifted with a bottle (Thanks Laura and Jenn!) and tonight he enjoyed a glass as we sat on our back deck relaxing.
As we slowly readjust to the north and begin to get the outdoors back in shape I am enjoying the “signs” of spring.
Our dining room is finally finished. Just a simple table setting but love the crispness of the white. And even better was the company (our other daughter and her aunt) we had for the first official dinner!
