Weekend Wrap Up

The foliage here in Connecticut is really starting to turn.

Hopefully the sun will come out this weekend so we can all get out and enjoy the scenery.

If not, I’ve got a long “to do” list of house projects.

Nothing exciting, just some over due closet clean outs and organizational things.

One thing which is exciting… (how’s that for a smooth segue?;)

If you missed my announcement on Instagram, I’ve got a new role as the Home editor of the new Bedford New Canaan Magazine!

The New York Post gave us a very positive shout out this week, which was pretty exciting.

Here’s the Instagram account for Bedford New Canaan Magazine if you’d like to follow.


Now on to this week’s round up of links….

    I’m a big fan of your site. Love your style and taste. I saw in a background pic two pieces of wall art I really liked. They are the beautiful butterfly and the heart. Where did you get those? Any info would be much appreciated.
    Thank you.

      Thanks so much! The butterfly art (that I think your referencing ) is by a company called Natural Curiosities. They’re online. Good luck xx Sue
