Inspiration - Finds - Recipes

3 Things I need to share!


Pinterest - Urban Cottage

I recently found this pin on pinterest from Urban Cottage.

I just love the Nautical Collection on this table.  It is inspiring me to redo my table in my living room.  I even dug out my turtle shell.  I think I need to do some beach combing for drift wood and be on the hunt for a silver bowl.  Such a beautiful display!


My family & I took a trip to Newport and I had to visit Lemon and Line.  I have heard so much about it and even have gone on their website a few times.  A beautiful store and such great customer service.  They even made my 8 year old's day by getting a special xxs bracelet for him in the back so that we all could get a bracelet.  Their price point is ideal too.  Most of their bracelets are only $25.  Check out their website Lemon and Line.



The other day at the Farmer's Market I was introduced to Cold Brew Ice Coffee.  Once you try it you will never go back to regular ice coffee.  Just delicious!

I found this how to on pinterest.  I think I need to give it a try.

What has inspired you this week?

Summer at Spring Hill Farm

Hi All!  Sorry for my lack of posts.  The blog, DIY projects & decorating have taken a back burner to spending time with family, friends and enjoying this wonderful weather! 

I have been able to grab a few pictures that I thought I would share..

We visited one of my favorite stores on our vacation to Maine - SEABAGS.
We always make a stop in Freeport. Seabags was the first in the market to make bags out of recycled sails.  Each bag is one of a kind.  I have a couple of them, but had to add one more to my collection.
My new Whale Seabag looks perfect in my mudroom hung next to a Turkish Towel.  It is also just the right size to hold a towel, sweater and snacks for the beach. 

The boys caught their first large mouth bass on our trip.  I cherish the days we spend with family in Maine every year.  The boys not only get to fish, but water ski and kneeboard.  The smiles on their faces are priceless.
I have done a little rearranging around the house.  I moved my Vintage Artillary Basket from my front hall to the kitchen.  I filled it with my old bread boards.  One of those moments when you say why didn't I do this sooner.  It looks perfect in its new home.
I will try to blog more often.  While I am gone enjoy the warm days and smiles of your little ones.  Time flies to quickly!

Cluck - Urban Farm & Garden Supply

Don't you just love when you find a new store?  I do!  The shopper in me gets so excited.  The other day I was looking through my new, May issue of Better Homes & Gardens.  It talked about some really amazing stores in Providence, Rhode Island. 

The one that really caught my attention was Cluck.  It is an old gas station that has been transformed into an urban farm and garden supply store.  As a gardener and owner of chickens, I knew I would have to take a visit and soon.  The boys and I happened to be in the area today so we took a trip. 

It has an amazing selection of chicken, bee keeping and gardening supplies.  I loved these reproduction charts.  Definitely going on my "I want list".

I also grabbed a variety of French carrot, lettuce and radish seeds. All can be sowed in the Spring. 

I just love when you find a place that combines old, new and supports local business.  If you are in the area please check them out! Cluck RI
