Hi Folks!  I'm stepping out for a bit, but I'm going to keep the shop open until July 10th.  All orders placed between June 27 and July 9 will be shipped July 10th.  Please convo me through Etsy if you have any questions about items and shipping.   After that the shop will close for the rest of July while we head out West.  Thanks all and enjoy the beginning of summer!

I'm so excited for our home to be featured on today's home tour over at Style Me Pretty Living!

Lifestyle and wedding photographer Joyelle West took the photos. We worked for two days, styling, shooting, and chatting.  Her lovely photos capture the look and feel of our house in such a great way, and it was a pleasure to work with her. I also learned so much about photography seeing a professional at work!

Joyelle is based in the Boston area, and travels far and wide to shoot weddings all over New England. Check out her wedding site  to see her beautiful wedding photography and her lifestyle site for inspiring travel and lifestyle photos.

Thanks, Joyelle, and thanks Style Me Pretty Living!  I'm so honored to be featured here!  For more photos, check out the full gallery: here.

Summerrrrrrr!  Yes, it's really here in, sunny, school is almost out.  And we go on vacation for a bit.  I'm actually going to close the shop from July 10 to July 31 while we go on an epic road trip out west.  So if there's anything you must have before then, now's the time... I will ship it out quickly to you.  Thanks all and have a lovely summer!

p.s.  I will certainly be posting on Instagram from the road, if you want to see what living in an RV with two teenagers is like for a few weeks...ha ha.  I'll try to include some photos of great American scenery as well.

Cheerful red enamelware in the shop!  Enamelware is great for summer cooking and serving.  Because it's light weight, it's easy to bring it outdoors or on a picnic or camping trip.  The cookware heats up quickly on the stove, so you don't have to keep the burner on too long in the summer heat.  And it just looks great. Win/win!

 Also, this little nautical flag bowl.  I'm guessing it was part of the dishware at a yacht club at some point and served up its share of lobster bisque and clam chowder?  At any rate, it's cute and summery.

Mutterhood magazine has just released their Industry issue online and they have included an interview of me talking about handmade, vintage, Etsy, and how my small business runs.  I'm honored to be a part of this publication...and each article in the issue is a little gem unto itself!  You can view other issues of Mutterhood here as well.  They are equally thoughtful, humorous and interesting.  Thanks for having a look!
