Changes

Over the past few months I have been dealing with some personal changes that culminated in my moving back to Boston last week. At some point I may be at a place where I can share more about it, but for now I hope you can all forgive me for taking a break from the blog while I regroup and heal. My shop remains open and will probably be more important for me than ever.

The most sincere thank you goes out to everyone who has followed, commented, or connected in any way along this journey. In many ways, the blog has kept me going over the past year and a half. It truly and honestly makes my day each time readers reach out to share in my world, and I am so honored by the little glimpses many of you have given me into yours. I hope that will continue once I regain my footing and come back to this space.

Stay in touch, and hope to see you back here soon --

xo,
Claire

Stone House Antiques




Before Wednesday's storm really kicked in I snuck in a trip to the Stone House Antique Center with my weaving teacher. She is also an antique lover and has recently started an Etsy shop to pare down her own collection. I could spend the entire day at the antique mall, digging through bins, hunting for textiles, and imaging how I would set up my booth if I had a spot in a group shop. Above are a few items that caught my eye!

Storm After Storm

Like everyone else in the eastern half of the country, we've been slammed with storm after snow storm. If you are on the sunny west coast or some other mild climate, I hope you are soaking up the heat and laughing all the way to the beach as you read this. If you are in the thick of it like we are, I hope you are bundled up by a fire, taking a snow day and staying out of this mess! Please enjoy this sampling of shots from the eye of it.

Snow piled on the house, the garden taken over

Fields of snow

Brown and white, the winter palette

Snow banks have reached the barn windows

Rode out one storm at my weaving teacher's house


And loved the contrast of her sun porch garden against the snowy outdoors
