weekend highlights.

Sunday night dinner.
The way to a man's heart is through his belly, obviously.

Baked Artichokes. Angel hair with shrimp, garlic, lemon, butter & olive oil. White wine.
Not pictured: Chocolate covered strawberries...they were devoured before I could get a photo!




 Can you even tell what this is? This is my TV room/den with it's grasscloth wallpaper that now covers the walls in half the room. The rest of the wallpaper should go up this weekend, and that room will be done! I can't wait to show you when it's complete! I think it will be my new favorite room. And the only room {besides the basement} with a couch! Hooray.

I stumbled upon a neat little store in downtown Providence called Craftland. This place is awesome...it's basically like Etsy, in a store.
Everything is handmade. I can't wait to go back.
These were my two purchases: Letterpress note cards & a pretty pillow cover.




My new favorite book. All about inspired and unique locally owned eating and shopping establishments in Newport & Providece, Rhode Island. Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Burlington, Vermont & Portland, Maine. Hubs and I love to discover new restaurants and shops, and if they are locally owned, even better. We can't wait to try out some new places this book mentions!



Hope you all had a great weekend! I was going to include a photo of my backyard because you could actually see the grass, and Lilly was loving it. However, now it's snowing and everything is covered again. Mother nature is laughing at me & that little taste of spring we had last week was such a tease!
