Welcome to the Weekly Rewind my online magazine. I’ll be recapping the week on the blog, a couple of great shopping finds, and my favorite links from the week.
Mother Nature gave us a treat in New England this week. It was 60 out the other day and I got out into the garden to do a little cleanup out there. I leave the sunflower plants in the ground for the birds to peck at so I finally yanked them all out.
We have had such a mild winter overall and the plants are a little mixed up. I moved leaves and saw one of my Coral Bells plants leafing out already!
I covered it with a mountain of leaves because stormy weather is heading here later this week. I also noticed a clump of iris shooting up and a Montauk daisy with green buds opening…ugh, I’m worried that we will get a cold snap again!!

Walmart has the coolest-looking candles out right now! They are rocking it in the trendy department!
The candles are in black matte jars with a wooden lid and leather handle.. very chic!! The Magnolia & Daylily scent is pretty too.
I ran into Hobby Lobby after Walmart to grab a few crafting supplies and noticed they gave the prettiest bouquets of dried flowers out for Spring. They were 40% off too.
I grew a few of the flowers pictured last year…the statice and strawflowers.
There are so many pretty wreaths that you could make with a bunch or two…I love dried flowers.
My husband and I took a drive up the coast a little bit to York, Maine to go antiquing yesterday afternoon. We went to the York Antique Gallery. Oh, you would love it!! It’s in a big old barn building and has 4 floors. It had old wide planked wood floors that must be hundreds of years old…oh my gosh, you would never sneak up on anyone in this place because the floors are so creaky!!
It was so much fun looking at all of the interesting pieces! I’ll be sharing the entire visit here on Tuesday so be sure to stop back.
While I was waiting to check out (I found 2 really interesting things!!) I started looking at this row of antique bowls sitting atop a bench by the registers. Friends…yikes…they were all hundreds of dollars!! The rectangular bowl was $450 I think. I forgot to ask how far back they dated but probably colonial times I would imagine.
Remember we were part of the original colonies around the Revolutionary War up here in New England…Paul Revere and all that good stuff!
New This Week
This week I rounded up all of my best wreath DIYs for you and put them all in one place. They are categorized by season for easy scrolling too. I’d suggest the Forsythia & Pussy Willow wreath, it’s perfect for this time of year.
Also, I published “Ways to Welcome Spring” which is full of budget-friendly ideas to make your home feel like Spring.
There is a link to download 6 fine art prints for free too. I scoured a few art sites for public domain images for a gallery wall I am doing in my living room and thought that you would all like them too! S

Product of the Week
If you have a Ninja DualPro Coffee Maker or the Ninja Specialty Coffee Maker did you know you can get a carafe for iced coffee??
I love it! It has the fill lines on it for ice and makes 1/2 or full pot of really good iced coffee.
