Hey friends!!!! It’s been another busy September week here on Bunker Hill! Let me just say the weather has been gorgeous in New England lately. September is one of my favorite months here, the weather is still warm enough to wear sandals but it’s cool in the mornings and there’s usually a nice breeze at night to fall asleep to.
I’ve had a few followers ask me this week if our leaves have changed yet, the answer is not really. You can see a few overachievers starting to turn red in spots. Sadly, the big maples in my front yard are just dropping leaves without turning red…my husband is already complaining about the leaves on the lawn!!
New This Week!
Flea Markets & Antiques
Do you love hitting the flea market or antiquing as much as I do?? My friends do too!! This weekend we are sharing all kinds of goodies we found and some useful tips for what to look and how to incorporate them into your home styling.
This week I shared a few things you should always keep your eye out for when you are out flea marketing or antiquing.

Diy Tin Can Vase
Here’s a super easy DIY project...and all you need is a little bit of paint and a big tin can! I love using unique vessels for flowers and plants. This one was the perfect size for a big armful of hydrangeas from my garden!!
Great Fall Finds!
Do you have a World Market near you? We only have 1 in New Hampshire so I usually shop online. I went on to check out a cute pumpkin… but ended up scrolling and finding all kinds of affordable Fall finds!
