Little house in the big woods

Here is a true story:  This morning, my very funny (very clever) comedian friend Steve Macone sent me an email with the words "free cabin porn."  Dubious of a computer virus, I promptly deleted this email and informed Steve that his account had been hacked. "Are you serious," he asked me.  "Did you read the link?"  I should have known, since Steve often ribs me for fantasizing about living in an L.L. Bean catalog, all snowshoes, puffy vests, and golden retriever puppies.

Indeed, this email link was not spam, but in fact has become my new favorite website. 

I give you: cabin porn, a big picture blog curated by the folks over at Beaver Brook.

Well-worn wood for the home

Friday Find: artwork on etsy

Absolutely swooning over this abstract seascape by Vermont-based artist Amber Alexander, which I found on etsy.  Here's her complete shop, which ranges from paintings of whimsical animals, people, and nature, to landscapes like the one above.

Tumblr to love: Cape Cod Collegiate

Another sweetly curated, New England prep-themed Tumblr that I can't get enough of: Cape Cod Collegiate.

Check it out.

Frame worthy?

Thinking of blowing this up and getting it framed.  Thoughts?  Anyone have any tips on doing this?

Dreaming of a winter wonderland

We woke up to a "light dusting" in Boston today, which will no doubt be melted by noon.  I've heard the phrase "snow drought" thrown about as of late.  I shiver at the thought!  While I wait patiently by the door in my duck boots, here's what I've been dreaming of...
