Bohemian Coffeehouse

A cute little coffee shop in Melrose. Love the tin ceilings. Only two seats inside and two tables outside. Cool funky décor and great coffee and muffins. Definitely one of my go to places.

I made it on QVC!

Ok, I should clarify that statement. My photo was shown on QVC. You can send yours in too and they might just show it. Just Like Carolyn Gracie's facebook page and when she asks for you to send a photo post it to her page. She might just choose your photo too!

Visting the Vintage Bazaar

I visited the Vintage Bazaar at Pettengill Farm today. What a picture perfect day and weekend! I loved this trolley car which was actually a food cart. Too cute!

Sunset Lighthouse Cruise

I went on a Sunset Lighthouse Cruise in Rye, New Hampshire. My sister bought me a ticket as my birthday present and the two of us took a sisters mini vacation (4 hours) yesterday. It was a fabulous evening!

Linens and Lavender

I stopped by this booth at Todd Farm yesterday. I was swooning over all the lovely dish towels, table runners, and pillows filled with lavender. I had such a great time.

It's My Birthday!

It's my birthday so chocolate cake is in order. Chocolate cake filled with chocolate mousse. Very decadent! My party was last night since today was our Father's Day celebration.

How does your garden grow?

 My garden is growing very nicely thank you. The dead shrubbery was pulled out and replaced by a few colorful plants. Makes all the difference in the world to our small condo garden. It's right outside my living room window so it makes me very happy.

Boston Proper

I had to meet a customer in Boston a few days ago. It was a very pretty day in the City. So glad I got to see it!

Nesting on Main

I had the day off from work. Found myself in Concord, Massachusetts, shopping and eating. This is a favorite shop in town, Nesting on Main. An eclectic mix of vintage and new items. All artfully displayed. Always beautiful and charming.

It seems like all I do is drink coffee!

Yesterday's post was about a coffee shop as is today's. This is outside of the Bohemian Coffee House in Melrose. I am often on the road for my job so when I need a coffee break I try to find a local little café.

Ultimate Perk

Stopped by Ultimate Perk coffee shop in Andover today. I love to discover new local cafes. Had a delish tuna wrap and an iced coffee. Yum!

Dreaming of vacation

After work, I like to go out to the patio and read my magazines and dream about my next vacation. I have not planned anything. Yet...

Cafe Piazza Dolce

My sister and I went for dessert last night at Café Piazza Dolce in Winchester. It's a small place with great food and desserts. I had a sea salt caramel brownie hot from the oven. She went with the cheesecake with strawberries. A nice night out not too far from home!
