I know, I know, I disappeared for a bit.
We should all do that once in a while!
I took some time off with my family and went to the Berkshires. I turned off Twitter, Facebook, disconnected myself from work including designing and blogging. I had a lovely time. Picked raspberries on a farm (we were instructed to bark here and there to ward off bears, seriously). Ate outside every day. Watched the sunset. Went to a 4th of July parade. Gobbled ice cream with my children. And, yes, went antiquing with my mom in delicious little spots where you need to carefully sift for treasures.
I thought I’d share a few interesting photos of Sweets and Beans, a most wonderful confiserie/ice cream shop/expresso bar I found in Williamstown, MA :
They offer great design and sweets all in one. I loved their hazelnut ice cream and the seating was relaxed and inviting to both adults and kiddos.
While antiquing, I fell in love with this 60s Madmen set of luncheon matching cups and plates:
Just for the fun, had to take a photo of these:
The night before we left, the sky was as festive as can be:
I came back to find my collection cherished hemerocallis had bloomed. A treat….
I hope all of you get to take a few days off this summer
