Taking Time to Slow Down This Season

After all the shopping and shipping is done I like to concentrate on how I will set my holiday table. I turn to my garden for natural elements as well as to my vintage china collection. I love mixing fresh pine and boxwoods with natural fibers like burlap and linen. Soft linen napkins and vintage red china make my dining room feel so festive. I am obsessed with sugar pine cones. I find a way to use them most of the year in table settings or displays. I just love thinking about the majestic tree they came from.

I enjoy slowing down and preparing for family and friends to arrive. Taking a step back from the constant movement of the season to just reflect on the wonderful year that is almost over. I feel so very grateful for all the blessings in my life and to have a business where I can share such beautiful products with you. 

Wishing you and your family a Healthy and Happy Holiday.

For the Love of Fall

With summer behind us and the days getting shorter and the nights colder we start to retreat more to our homes for evenings by a fire and snuggled up watching a movie. Fall scents are in the air and the brisk weather has us taking out our cozy blankets and setting up our guest bedrooms for the arrival of holiday guests. It is my favorite season. I love everything about it. The way the sky looks and how the sun peeks through the changing leaves on a tree. Pumpkins, mums and sweater weather. It always reminds me of my mom and days walking home from school and smelling her home cooking a block away. I love that Ava Rose has that same feeling coming home from school. A delicious home cooked meal waiting for her, a cozy throw to snuggle up with and a comfy blanket to go to bed with. Fall is also the time when we stock up our shop and our online store with everything you need to prepare your home for guests and to get ready to settle in and enjoy your home.

Here are some of my favorite picks this fall. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. 


 The evenings begin to have that Autumnal chill, but inside it’s toasty as friends come together to share food and candlelight. Our favorite Fall Candle Cranberry Orange Scented!

Happy Fall! I am going to put on a pot of minestrone soup for tonight's dinner. Enjoy your day!

Summer seemed to go so quickly this year. It just seems like yesterday that we were preparing for the end of the school year and planning summer fun. Now we are planning for back to school and fall.

Gorgeous heirloom quilts, soft scalloped matelasse coverlets and shams, pretty pillows and gorgeous sheets. We look forward to working with you on creating a bed of your dreams.

So much to share with you!

I have so many projects I want to share with you! So little time always! If you have been following me for the last 10 years you will know I am always working on my 1920's Arts and Crafts style home. It is always a work in progress. Summertime seems to be the time when I get the most done so I have a lot to share with you and I am so excited.

A little background first for anyone that does not know me. I am a single mom with a beautiful kind hearted soon to be 7 year old daughter named Ava Rose. We live in a big old house and have lots of furry rescued friends. They make our home. I also have a retail shop in Port Jefferson Village, New York and an online shop which you probably know about if you reached this blog. Juggling it all can be very challenging but I would not have it any other way. I love everything about my life and I love sharing it all with you.

So for this summer here is my lineup of projects. Some are not always so much fun as there is a lot of basic upkeep on a big old house.

For outside:

  • I just had a picket fence put in the front of the house and we have been busy painting it. Ava Rose is a big help! (beautiful but not so much fun painting!)
  • I am also working on adding a few new garden beds and weeding and mulching. (not so much fun! it's hot!)
  • We are adding to our fairy garden and expanding it. (fun!)
  • We are also planning on doing a beautiful mosaic when the weather cools down a bit. (fun!)
  • Refinishing old vintage outdoor furniture. I selected a pretty robin's egg blue for the color. (fun!)


  • Painting all the baseboards and radiators (not so much fun!)
  • Planning a guest bathroom makeover. This has been real fun I am work with Dawn from My Hydrangea Home on this project and it is coming very soon! (super fun!)
  • Installing new bamboo floors in my office and soon to be family room. (super fun!)
  • Painting all trim. The trim gets yucky and needs to be refreshed often. (not so much fun!)
I will have lots of pictures to share with you real soon for now I need to get back to work!

Altered Couture Now at Lavender Fields

I am so excited to announce our expansion into clothing and jewelry. I personally select every item that is sold in our retail store and online and I am so picky! I love unique items. Items that tell a story. I love vintage clothing and have a new passion for altered couture. I am thrilled with our latest introduction. Each piece is truly a work of art. Bringing together vintage pieces with new fabrics or combining a few vintage pieces makes each piece unique.

Each piece can be dressed down or up, Perfect for summer days or nights, festivals, even weddings!

I just love these new tassel bracelets that come in many colors and go with just about anything.

Coming soon Kendra Scott Jewelry!

Reflecting on Summer

Summer means so much to me. It brings back so many childhood memories. Starting Memorial Day Weekend my parents would pack up the car to take my sister and I to our house in Sullivan County New York. I can still remember the Chevy Nova my dad drove and the old vintage thermos filled with coffee and ice tea. We would stop at Bear Mountain and just get out and breathe the fresh country air. Growing up in Brooklyn it was such an amazing escape to the country each weekend. I can easily recall so many fond memories. One of my favorites is the sound of the old wood screen door. I am planning on putting one in my house this summer just for the sound!

Here is a picture of me (the younger one) and my sister with our schnauzer Buffy sometime in the seventies.

Our house was near the original Woodstock location and near White Lake and Bethel. It has changed so much now but I remember asking my dad how it was driving up during Woodstock and he laughed and said he stayed away. Traffic was backed up for miles. But just thinking of that time was so much fun to me. To know how house was so close to it. We visit the site very summer.

We would spend lazy summer weekends by the lake and then take a fun trip into White Lake to visit the old grocery store for candy. Time stood still back then. Weekends seemed so long and there were no cell phones or laptops or even tv in the house. We would listen to the radio. We spent nights playing games and pick up sticks or catching fireflies.

I would love to go back to that time when my parents were still with us. But I can only remember those days and I promised my little girl this summer we will put down the phones and computers and play games and catch fireflies, eat ice cream and take road trips. I want to build those same memories for her. We still have our house and although it looks different up there now it is still summer in the country and Ava Rose is already loving it.

Wishing you a safe and happy summer of building memories for you and your family.
