Decorating Magic

If you haven’t stopped in VH lately, come visit and take a look at the new back room! We pulled it together pretty quickly–our secret? Using a neutral palette and classic furniture in styles we love– and it all works together with ease! In this room we draped the ceiling to hide fluorescent, and added lots of

Mirrors, Lamps, and Architectural Tiles.
Leslie worked her magic and pulled in lots of pillows and upholstery to soften things up–and voila! A new cozy spot for discovery at Vintage Home—

Although we also think it would be a great place to sneak in a nap! But there’s no napping at VH–unless you are Twinkle or Boo.



New England Food Tour

Sometimes you just have to let your eyes feast on food that speaks for itself–here are some recent favorites from travels this week–
Classic lobster boil in West Bath Maineimage1
Lobster Roll (everywhere in Maine) and also excellent at Anthony’s Seafood in Newport RI
Breakfast hash in Boothbay Harbor Maine at Waves–healthy and delicious veggies scrambled with potatoes and fried eggs nestled beside.
I love that when they ran out of home fries and a couple other items they just closed their doors for the day. Quintessential New England!

Farm/Sea-to-Table took an upscale turn with roasted blackfish at The Oyster Club in Mystic CT
Best desserts this week? Creme brûlée at Oyster Club or the handmade coconut/almond/chocolate chip ice cream up in Boothbay Harbor at Downeast Ice Cream Factory. Both amazing choices!
Oh my, I’m full!


Happy Hunting In Maine

Headed to Maine for my 39th high school reunion hosted by classmate at her”camp”–how fun! Really headed to Maine just for the reunion, but a little hunting is always fun when you’re in a new neck of the woods…

Weren’t we lucky to stumble in to the Boothbay Harbor antiques show? There were some very pricey New England antiques, but we managed to score a few fun Maine finds–
Classic vintage crate labels for Maine blueberries
And a gorgeous piece of english ironstone ( we have lots of great pieces at VH) that’s been in a Maine the family for generations–
I loved these pillows made from antique French matlesse–stuffed with fresh down, and had to bring a few home. Look for some of the at Vintage Home soon!
And finally, check out this amazing piece of folk art that was actually a huge dollhouse!
More travels to come! Enough of the “finds!” Next time– “food!”
