My niece Ashley, on right, and Nell in my kitchen...

Well.....that was an interesting weekend! My niece Ashley came for a very brief visit from Rhode Island, all of 12 hours!! It was sooo good to see her. We ate, drank, laughed and reminisced with her, my 4 sons, my youngest brother John and his daughter Nell. I love to cook...and eat!...I made a dish I've had at a beautiful restaurant called Scarborough Fair in Wall/Manasquan, NJ.

As for the buying this weekend ...I did find some interesting things. A pair of unusual etched mirrors, a WHOLE bin of wooden shoe forms!!.... original watercolor and other goodies!! Be sure to check the website for more info and pricing!

Funny how things happen in my I come across the flowered chair, i LOVE, one day..... then the following day, five towns away... is this oil painting, which looks as if it were painted to match the room where the chairs might be!!!! SWEET! I did come across two other great tables, that are PERFECTLY shabby, which I'll post to here and the website probably later today.

Also please visit my friend Gail's is an awesome writer, antiquer, decorator...the list goes on! She and her husband own the ONLY B&B in Manasquan THE NATHANIEL MORRIS INN and its super charming!
