What’s Been Happening
The first week of Summer started out pretty chilly here in coastal New Hampshire!! It was in the 50s some mornings and the days were 70…but with the prettiest blue skies and puffy white clouds!! But it ended with a weekend in the 90s…I don’t know how all of my Southern friends do that weather all the time!!
On Saturday I headed down to the summer Vintage Bazaar New England show at Kimball Farm in Haverhill. I always find so many goodies at their seasonal shows and there are so many interesting local New England vendors.
I also got to meet a few of other New England bloggers & creators. It was so fun to meet some of the gals that I’ve been Instagram friends with for years!!
I’ll be sharing more about the Vintage Bazaar this week.
My two projects this week were both for out in my garden,. My first little project was putting together this Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit inspired scarecrow.
Last week I stopped by a local antique store and picked up a bag full of goodies to use in both of these projects.
The second project that I made using some vintage garden tools & pots that I bought was a garden wreath. It has the perfect cottage garden flair and I love how it looks in an old thrifted chair outside of my garden gate.
You have to check out my tour of the Fuller Gardens. It’s a local New Hampshire botanical garden that has 1,500 rose bushes in bloom right now! Just such a lovely afternoon and I’m happy to be able to share it with you too! If you are ever up this way here is a Yankee Magazine Guide to the Seacoast.

Have you ever watched the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular concert??? If you are home on the 4th put it on because the music is amazing and it’s so much fun to watch the crowd!

Who has good Summer reads??? I hate to admit it but I haven’t sat down and read a book in so long! I love reading too but have been using my “free” time to work on projects. I just checked out the Reese WItherspoons Book Club picks for June and realized I still have 2 of the books on the list sitting over on my bookcase that I haven’t read yet…
Have a wonderful week…and get ready for the 4th of July!! Can you believe it’s almost the 4th????… Here’s my best patriotic ideas for you
