Easter Time!!!!

Spring is here and Easter is just a few days away.  This is a great time to bid  farewell to winter and refresh your home decor with bright spring colors.  I love how cheerful  my house looks when I start decorating with colorful eggs, beautiful spring flowers that smell delicious, and decorative whimsical bunnies! Whether you are setting your dining table for Easter brunch or dinner, decorating your mantel, or just adding some playful Easter decorations on a coffee table I have some great ideas for you!

Happy  Decorating  &  Happy Easter!

Something Extra: One of my favorite Easter traditions is baking Easter Bread! Here’s a picture of the finished product!



Mother’s Day Gift Guide!

If you’re looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, then look no further! Finding a gift for Mom on Mother’s Day can be a difficult task, but I’ve taken the liberty of compiling some great nautical inspired gifts that will be perfect. Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 13th, so there’s still time to scoop up one of these great finds.

Something Extra:

For all the Mom’s out there, I wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day. Here’s a picture of my Mother and I in 1962.

Aunt Sadie’s Candles

Sometimes, what drives me to a company is its history. I just love a good story behind a product or company I use in my home.  Aunt Sadie’s candle company, founded in 1996,  is a family  business based in Boston, Massachusetts. The name Aunt Sadie honors the matriarch of the family Sadie Denton, a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt…who loved to bake.

Aunt Sadie’s specializes in authentically scented, hand poured in the USA candles. Each candle is packaged in a tin can, and wrapped with beautiful paper that compliments the candles scent. From seasonal scents, to the great outdoors, to the kitchen, Aunt Sadie’s has a scent for whatever your heart desires.

These beautiful candles will bring an air of nostalgia to your home, as the scent of the beach, a christmas tree, or even apple pie permeates throughout your room.

I’ve purchased many Aunt Sadie’s candles throughout the years, my favorites being the Santa Tree candle, which I bring out every Christmas. I do change up my candle seasonally and always look to add a new scent of Aunt Sadie’s candle to my collection.

There are over 200 scented candles to choose from, so whatever you fancy, fancy Aunt Sadie’s candles!
