Welcome to the Weekly Rewind where I recap the week, share what you might have missed, and some links that I think you will love.
Like most of the country, we headed into a stormy week here! I am so sad…last Sunday was 60 out and now it’s 8 and there are more flakes falling!
I know..I know it’s still February, but I was excited about the possibility of an early Spring in New Hampshire. I’m dying for gardening season to start.

New This Week
I stopped by a big antique gallery in Maine last weekend and found some interesting things! You have to see the 2 new cool pieces that came home with me.
I have been on the hunt for vintage-looking gold frames for months while I’ve been out thrifting with zero luck so I had to improvise and buy some new black frames and give them a vintage makeover.
Mushrooms are all the rage this Spring! I’m drawn to anything natural when I’m decorating and I designed a few mushroom printables to use in the frames I just DIY’d.
You can find these mushroom printables in 2 sizes (8×10 and 5×7) over in my free printable & ebook library.
This week I also went over 4 different ways to dry and preserve your flowers that I’ve tried and also different projects that you can make with dried and pressed flowers. Hey, and since we aren’t out there gardening it’s a nice way to keep thinking about flowers!
