Try This at Home


"Old Glory"

I am on what's known as a 'stay-cation'. There is no place I'd rather be than home during the summer, and this particular summer is one of the best ones, weather wise, that we've seen in a while. 
YES! Perfect New England summer!
I've been spending my days on our deck under a shady umbrella, painting. First up were my mother's little garden gnomes who live with me now. She loved for me to refresh them for her and of course they had a lot more panache after a meeting with me and my brush.
But, our sweet little shed, the purple trim painted by my husband, has been calling to me and yesterday I answered the call. Actually, the flag is my favorite part.

Oh those gnomes are delightful, Mary! I love the whimsy and the colors of them. The painting is beautiful and the dappled shade is perfection!

Could I reserve that gorgeous shed for when I need to move into a Granny flat?
