Continuing with Rose's Enchanted Gardens!

Outdoor wicker awaits some guests to arrive
and take up residence!

The porch door frames a lovely outdoor scene!

The courtyard...a shady area filled
with all things that love the shade and cool.

This little Cape Cod style home is
"Enchanted".   Yes it is!

Taking pictures through gates and fences
adds a photographic flair to your picture taking!

The side of the garage is called "St. Theresa's Way".
Rose has fun with color and whimsical treasures!
Have fun with spray paint!

Another vignette in a magical landscape!

The Enchanted Cottage "Lights UP"

A very creative friend has used
her many talents to redesign old

This one was made with an
old napkin and glue gun.

Pretty trim found at a yard sale along
with ribbon from an outlet transforms this
lady-like lamp!

An old lace curtain valance,
grosgrain ribbon and artificial
flowers top this shade off.
A Sharpie marker was used to
put dots on the lamp base.

This lamp, repainted Ballet Pink
is topped off with lace and ribbon.

A brass candlestick lamp has
been given new life with the
transformed shade.
SO...get your remnants together and don't forget the
glue gun!  You're about to have a lot of fun!

Marblehead, Massachusetts

On the north shore of Boston is where you'll find Marblehead. 
Very old homes dating back hundreds of years can be found along the
narrow, winding streets.  Several yacht clubs and great places
to eat are here in Marblehead. 
Definitely worth the trip!

A quick stop at the Eastern Yacht Club completed our visit.

We got to see and hold 
"The Gerard Barnes Lambert"
yachting trophy.  This impressive trophy was
made by Tiffany & Company and dates back
to the 1930's.

The Model Room is shown here.
