Thrift Find Of The Week

I just love my super long
handmade braided rug
that I found at a garage
sale for $5.00 ! It's clean
and in perfect condition,
I love it and it looks perfect
under my $20.00 kitchen
island. It's the only way
to shop !

Our Room At The Beach

We love this little Inn right on the
beach. We stayed here last summer
too and now it's our new favorite
place.
The Above Tide Inn
The view was amazing and the
sound of the surf soothing.
A simple and clean little room up
on the second floor this time
which we loved.
One little step up took us out to our
own little canopy covered balcony.
It was just so beautiful and relaxing.
We felt very spoiled being here.
We will be back again !

A Beautiful Shop In Ogunquit , Maine

I vacation in Ogunquit,Maine
every summer and each time
I'm there I visit this shop.
This shop is just a short trolley
ride from the Ogunquit beach
where we stay.
The shop is located in Perkins Cove
which is a neat little world of it's
own with yummy restaraunts &
plenty of beautiful shops.

The front window was just full of eye
candy this time. This display had so
much in it that I didn't know where
to look , I just kept seeing something
else to love everwhere I looked.

The desserts all looked so real but
they weren't . I really just wanted to stick
my finger in the frosting on one of the
cupcakes to know for sure.

And I really wanted a piece of this cake!

Way too many pretty things all grouped
together are so wonderful but I often find
that I am overwhelmed and can't decide
what I like most so I don't end up
buying anything at all.
I guess I wanted all or nothing !
