Almost three solid weeks spent at home and my motivation to dress up every day is slowly giving way to slippers, comfortable pants, and oversized sweaters. A couple of days last week I don’t think I bothered getting ready at all. I didn’t feel quite like myself. When Friday arrived bringing with it warm weather and sunshine, I did my hair, put a on a dress, and felt like a whole new person. Dressing up improved my mood drastically. I enjoyed a glass of Rose’ on the porch and even helped Harry give Bennie a much needed bubble bath.
This time of year I love heading to Newport to visit my favorite shop Cottage & Garden. It’s my go to place to stock up on topiaries, terra-cotta pots, and unique pieces for the home and garden. The baskets featured in the second photo came home with me on one of my shopping trips last April. I always love bringing in new plants and spring pieces to freshen up my home early spring. Like most non-essential stores, Cottage & Garden is closed for the unforeseeable future.
