Empty Stations...

Hello Lovelies~

I hope you are all doing well out there. A lot of things happening here as usual! To start, I have listed a new print in the shop that I think is a nice spring piece. It's called Maine Train Station and it is being featured this week on Phantomas with a nice accompanying fictional short story entitled Pullman Berth. Beautiful stuff, take a peek:


Last week was my 8th anniversary with my Sweetie and we enjoyed a beautiful meal at Fore Street Restaurant in Portland to celebrate. If you're local and you haven't had the pleasure, you need to check it out. Beautiful atmosphere and the food really is delicious. I also got two beautiful bouquets of flowers straight from the Boston Flower Show. They make the house smell delicious. I am a lucky woman...


While we're on this bright, spring kick, I want to show you the work of Johnny Miller. Heard of him? He is a photographer and stylist who's done work for Martha Stewart Living among others. You know his stuff, it's the signature MSL look; bright, modern, clean, creative. On his site (linked above) he also has a section of personal work and I found the love letters he documented between his parents when his Dad was in Vietnam, an especially moving series. Check it out. Oh, and here's more of his great work:


It's been a long time since I've read a good book, life gets busy and most days, I fall into bed and watch a movie instead. But, I just got Alice Hoffman's The Red Garden (she wrote Practical Magic), and I can't wait to start it. It's whimsical and set in New England and I don't know much more about it because I've avoided spoiling it by reading the synopsis. Do you like Alice Hoffman? Have you read this book?


Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

Thanks Chrisy! :) Yes, the Titanic was a gift from my folks. I think it's actually a whiskey decanter? Strange though, how it sits horizontally. Not sure how they put something like that on a store shelf. :)
