Here's a super simple way to use a 
clay pot as a candle holder...
Paint it whatever color 
you wish
give a quick white wash...
I used a white acrylic paint and 
then sanded off the edges...
Create your own look with your favorite color...
Take a peek!!
Have a happy day,

Sherwin Williams Sea Salt bedroom redo!!

We've been painting it up here in the "Burbs"... 
all 3 of our girls bedrooms needed 
a new paint job....
We used SW Sea Salt for one of the rooms and 
SW Popular Gray for the other two...
(I'll be posting pics of those rooms soon)  
Our oldest daughter has moved out of state to start her own life as a HS teacher.  
My dad then stayed in that room while we took care of him during the last few months of his life...xo

Below is a look at it's new decor!
Take a peek... 
Have a happy day,

FROM BEACH TO BURBS visits Harney & Sons Fine Teas

My friend Kari & I have been on 
monthly "field trips" 
to local venues that we've both been 
wanting to visit...
Our most recent was to 
Harney & Sons Fine Teas.
They are master tea blenders and 
after many years of purchasing 
their teas for myself as well as for gifts, 
it was such a treat to finally 
visit and experience their flagship store.
 The tasting room 
as well as the shop are equally amazing.
 We started off with a lovely lunch in 
their quaint restaurant...
take a peek !!

French Onion soup...YUM!!
& look at this GORGEOUS salad!

Teas galore!!
The tasting room allows you to sample many different varieties...

LOVE a big mug!!

The staff is friendly and oh so helpful!
Be sure to make time for some afternoon tea
at Harney & Sons Fine Teas in Millerton, NY!

Have a happy day,
