Flipping Gloucester: Completed Kitchen

I am pleased to introduce you to the kitchen of our flip. It’s funny how different it looks from the before photo even with the same cabinets and counters. If you are just reading about this flip for the first time let me tell you that we really lucked out… the previous owner put in […]


Vintage Bazaar

Thank you for all of your kind words on my last post! I think I’ve responded to all of you! We are excited about this next step and I can’t wait to share with you more about that… I’ll be sure to do a complete before and after tour before we start packing up… but […]


Big News…

I haven’t been posting much… and here’s why: For a long time we’ve been tossing around the idea of an addition to our home and then while my real estate obsessed hubby was scrolling through the most recent listings in our town one night he came across this house that we loved. It was a 1970s […]


Summer Home Tour 2015

Welcome to our Summer Home Tour 2015. Come up the front walk and you’ll see irises and beach roses. Early summer is easily my favorite time of year at our home. As you saw in our front porch post I’ve decorated simply out here with an incredibly easy to make wreath on the door, some […]


Flipping Gloucester: Progress

I’m much overdue on this post. By about a month.  But here are some progress photos from the flip. We are about a week and a half away from putting it on the market and we could not be more excited to stick a fork in it and call it done. Here we go… some […]

Ingrained Slider


I have been waiting forever to write this post. Okay, “forever” is an exaggeration but I did this photo shoot for Jeremy from Ingrained for Life in February. I went to college with Jeremy’s sister and learned that he had started making tables out of pallets. I was a little skeptical of the concept since all the […]

Starfish Slider

Starfish American Flag

I’m part of the third annual Summer Celebration series hosted by House by Hoff and Making Home Base… I’m sharing one of my favorite projects from last year, my Starfish American Flag. If this doesn’t say “coastal New England” I don’t know what does. Click HERE to read the full post and see all the […]

Painted in Waterlogue

Lilac Watercolors for the Master (and free prints for you!)

It’s pouring rain and 48 today. You know, the kind of June 1 where you drink hot chocolate cuddled in your polar fleece PJs instead of lemonade in a sun dress on the porch. We’ve been in the middle of one of the craziest months of our lives. It’s just a season but it feels so […]

Cleaning up the Kids’ Rooms

You know when you walk around your house and all you see are unfinished projects? Those projects you started with the best of intentions and then you couldn’t figure out how to finish them and you just left them there? We had a million of them so we hired Nate the Great (the amazingly talented […]


Our Spring Front Porch

Somehow $30 Thursday with Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and April from House by Hoff, has snuck up on me. Everyday after AJ comes home from work I’ve been jetting off to the flip for a few hours… which means there is very little time to do fun DIY projects. As I was sitting on […]
