    Welcome back! Though these things are never easy, it was nice to see you were able to relax too. I lived in Narragansett while going to URI and we used to go to Crazy Burger and Newport all the time…your photos made me smile and think of so many fun times! Glad you're back!

    Isn't it ironic how sometimes even the not so great moments in life have something to offer us? I'm so glad you were able to spend time with some relatives you hadn't seen and that summer house looks amazing! I have never been to Rhode Island but I would love to visit someday!! Sounds like you had a wonderful time, and I am so glad!

  19. Jessica says:

    I was in Rhode Island for the weekend too! What are the chances? Me, a little ole gal from Alabama, in Rhode Island the same weekend as Mrs. High-Heeled Foot in the Door!

    I wish the weather had been a little more cooperative… we didn't plan for the chilly nights and didn't really want it to rain… but it was pretty cool (for a girl from the south) and it poured all day on Saturday.

    Sorry to hear about your tough week. With time..

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
