I wear ballet flats 24-7 something that I’m sure is not good for my back! But they are faster than a heel  and more stylish than a sneaker.  J. Crew a every color and style you could want!

5 blogs I love to read and so should you!

For the Fashionista Atlantic-Pacific will give you all sorts of inspiration!

For those of you that crave a blast of color in the AM. Absolutely Beautiful Things blogs about all things down under and beyond. Her shop Black and Spiro make me want to hop on a plane!

Foodies! I was turned onto this blog by another blogger and so on and so on thus the time suck of spending all day at your computer looking at blogs!! But this one has beautiful images, easy recipes and there has not been a dud in the bunch. Delicious!

COOKIE and Kate

Sewing is not my strong suit by I’ll take on a good painting DIY. I’m not afraid! KFD Design is full of creative ways to use paint. I find it’s a great place for inspiration.

And if you are looking for any other form of a creative DIY look now further. Jenny of Little Green Notebook is full of them some more ambitious than others but  all totally doable. I’m not sure where she finds the time!

House Tour-North Shore

April 16, 2012

This stunner is located on the North Shore of Massachusetts and truly reflects a New England style. Designer Amy Meier is the creative force behind this amazing renovation of an old boarding house called the Rockport Lodge. Owned by the Massa­chusetts Association of Women Workers it provided Boston’s young, single working women with the kind of seaside vacation they could never afford otherwise.  Meier was giving the task of making this place feel like a home for her long time friend. She took neutrals, popped with great art and color and transforming the 3,000 square feet into a cozy place for a family to live.

The house still dons the Rockport Lodge sign and the homeowners get a knock every once in a while of a stranger looking for a place to stay.

The chevron pattern on the floor akea such a statement. I love it!
