Today I want to talk about New England and my love for it. I am not sure when I realized I loved the Cape. Long before I ever got to visit. I really think it was because I fell in love with the Stillmeadow Books, by Gladys Taber. If you have followed me very long, you know I love all of her books. My bucket list contains a visit to Stillmeadow. Then along came Murder She wrote, set in a little New England town. I was hooked. Now don't get me wrong, I love where I live. I used to say if you removed me from my mountains I would wither away. Granted it would take a while as there is a lot to wither.lol Anyway, I love New England. I remember the first time I went across the bridge to the Cape, I was teary eyed. Silly I know, but I was. I couldn't wait to sit by the water and eat seafood. (NOW that is another story that my son in law loves to tease me about today.) I will just tell you now the first place we ate, was Pizza Hut!!!! Not my choice.lol Again that is another story.
I love Southern furniture and try to buy only Tennessee pieces. That is just me.
Anyway it is raining today and I was looking at what I needed to do and decided to share my few New England pieces of furniture with you
I love all my New England pieces, and think they blend well with my southern pieces. I have to add some of my New England treasures are not "things". They are the friends I have made on FB, Blogging, and the decorating groups I belong to. I think we blend well too, and I think I am blessed when you come Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS One of my high school friends, lost her son this week. Will you say a prayer for Kathleen?
PSS: Lets continue to pray for our men in blue.Also our women, as my friend Audrey reminded me. I didn't mean to not include them I just think they are one.
PSSS: I hope everyone has a wonderful week. It is summer time and the living is easy.
