Every book club should have a getaway meeting--especially if one of the members has moved to a lovely beach town on Cape Cod.
|I had to show you the osprey nest on top of what they tell me is a insect control box. I do love an over-sized home.|
We spent about ten minutes discussing books and hours and hours on the beach, eating seafood, and trying out all the different wines everyone brought along.
|Some of the ladies of the club at a nursery that had a fairy garden with these sweet stone pieces.|
|See the little fairy door built into the stone?|
We squeezed in several nurseries including the Cape Code Lavender
nursery and also managed a short but expensive trip to the Scargo
And as for the swimsuit sarong update--I don't know whether it is that I'm too lazy to tie a knot or my present obsession with putting snaps on everything. I decided to update last year's sarong
with some pearl snaps. I put two sets of snaps on the top to make it a wrap-around.
|Love how the fabric drapes on the side showing a swirl of the black backing fabric.|
|The fact that I think this way makes me look thinner may have something to do with the snap decision.|
What's the secret? I need to appear thinner in mine! LOL Love the garden.ReplyDelete
VERY clever idea to put snaps on!!! A knot definitely adds on weight, especially if wearing a long blouse on top, which I usually do. I'm going to have to invest in some snaps, so I can try this... when the weather warms a little.ReplyDelete
Which part of the first picture is the nest? I enlarged it but I can't quite figure out what is what :D Love the fairy door - if my kids ever give me GRANDIES, I'm going to enlist hubby into doing fairy/gnomey designs outside for fun, for the kids - I think it's adorable!ReplyDelete
GIMME SNAPS! ALL of them! If 2 sets work to thin, then I need 22 sets :D I'm obsessed with those snaps too, thanks to you, lol. I put snaps on 2 zipper pouches today - I'm now all out of the antiquey bronze size 24's I bought - will have to - darn it all - go back to the store and buy more. Poor me :D
The nest is on top of the box-like structure in the middle of the field. That area is all marshland--not supposed to be walking out there. Without my zoom lens camera, this was the best shot I could get!ReplyDelete
I've never seen one built so low before. I guess the water provides more than enough protection.
