Off To My Happy Place !


HandyHusband planted these in the backyard a few years back.
They are HUGE now and the color is AMAZING!
They are right behind my favorite perch @ my in-laws.
The view from where I sit...
As you can see, it's pretty hard to get up!



It took us awhile to get the boats in the water.
They're old and needed some "tweeking."
They're not worth taking pictures of!
One we call "The Ugly Duckling," if that gives you a mental image!
Let's just say there's duck tape and glue involved.
Not a pretty picture, but fun.
Mrs. Johnson's little boat, on the other hand, is one 
of my favorite sights of the summer...

Meanwhile, back at the cottage! I welcome a rainy day! Inspiration is everywhere you look when the sun's out sooo... Let it RAIN! It has to actually be pouring to keep us inside though, and we only had one rainy day for me to make a mess like this. I took way more than I finished, but my sister-in-law made me a bowl perfect to keep me from spilling my beads on the beach! She's been contracted by the Maine Marathon for MUGS this year! If you're running, she can put your time on the back with the Maine Marathon Logo! VERY COOL!

Sneak peek of the hairchop!
It's even shorter now!


Here are a few of #handyhusband's @handygrams!
Oh how family jokes get taken too far...
This all started with my posting an instagram video
of #handyhusband snoring through the night.
The rest will be history, stay tuned or follow him.
I can guarantee the he will NOT blow up your feed!
He has an old flip phone that he still hasn't learned to use.
He has put me fully in charge of his profile on instagram, but
has taken full responsibility of the actual handygram!


A few years ago, we bought a Tom Deininger Oil from The Donovan Gallery and I'm always so curious to see his work each time we go in. This year, I was totally shocked by his collages! They are AMAZING, but nothing like the oil painting we purchased. So inspired to come home and chop up my stacks of magazines that I haven't a clue why I can't throw them out.

There was a new boutique in Tiverton 4 Corners this year, SALT. Still wishing I had found a way to squeeze this pouf in the back of the car on the way home... but we would have had to leave Hobbs in Westport, sooooo I can make my own pouf, but this Roberta Roller Rabbit one is precious! There's also a new yarn shop, Perfectly Twisted, but they were closed, I couldn't jimmy the lock and I was too short (still am) to peek in the windows for a full report. :[


And what's vacation without food, right?
We ate a lot of lobster and a Maker's share of corn, but...

Until next year charming little harbor town.

...Heaven on Earth...

And yes, I do know how lucky I am!
