Pin Whim of the Week

Hello dear friends.  We woke up to a blanket of fresh snow covering our newly shoveled driveway.  We are expecting another 8 to 14 inches tomorrow night.   Oh Lawd!!!

By the way, our plow guy didn't go on vacation after all, although after visiting my house, I bet he wish he had.  He got stuck and had to get towed.  Just another day in Paradise in Preppy Empty Nesterville.

In an effort to capture a "Calgon Take Me Away" moment, I have pinned these very pretty pictures.  I wish someone would invent a way to climb into these photos so I could live there until Spring.

Isn't this headboard pretty?  Adore the piping!


Cute idea.

I would love to take a nap on this bed and dream of warm sunshine.

Great looking.

I am positively smitten with checks.  Any size, any color.

If I could pick one photo to live in, this would be it!

What I'm longing for...

Pop Sugar
Mushroom & Goat Cheese Queso

Looks like a Superbowl must have to me.


Love everything about this pic.


Hey Mister, I want a potting shed just like this one for my birthday.


Never met a window seat that I didn't like. 

I can deal with almost anything if I have a good night's sleep and a couple of laughs.

Hope your team wins!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Feel free to contact me through comments and email. I love to hear from my readers!


  1. I love Pinterest...it makes me think anything is possible, even when surrounded by piles of white stuff. Stay warm and don't travel too far from the remote.

  2. Hang in there Katie! That horrific white stuff (a lady doesn't use the 's' word) is the price one pays to live in MA the rest of the glorious year!
    PS I've put in my time so can now take that warm break.

    1. Denise... how much time do I have to put in before I get a warm break? Enjoy your Superbowl Sunday!

    2. if Mister Is wise, he'll treat you to a warm spa getaway!
      GO PATS,


  3. Holy cow! I hope the forecasters are wrong. And I hope the Mister is home this time!

    1. Susie - I hope they are wrong too! From what I can see in the Midwest, I don't think they are tho. Enjoy the Superbowl!

  4. Ahhh . . . that window seat is a cure for anything! What did snowed - in people do before pinterest? Shadow puppets, I guess. Thanks for the pretties!

  5. Look at all of that snow! My daughter's boyfriend (Brooke/Mr. E) is from Boston He doesn't miss it one bit. Looks so pretty, but I am sure you are so over it! I still am holding our for one little snow day here!

  6. I have such a hard time with that concept of the snow plow!!!......this said from a gal who has only had snow in her backyard maybe 3 times in her whole life!!!
    I think your dealings with the snow plow guy and my dealings with the pool guys may be one in the same!!! Just in opposite ends of the country~~

  7. Your snow-plower tried to plow 2 feet of snow on a lengthy driveway in one shot?! Yikes. No wonder he got stuck.

    1. Yup, he also shoveled the patio. No entrances to the house, just the patio. Maybe he thinks we were going to have a barbecue. Have a great Superbowl Sunday, Paige.

  8. Love all of these beautiful images - blue and white headboard, checks, window seat and all the rest. Good luck with next round of white stuff and I hope you have plenty of coffee and wine!

  9. Oh my, sorry for the plow guy but that sure makes one dramatic image. I miss some of the excitement of the big storm coming...but none of the work involved, including all the boots/hats/layers/etc. You've know both kinds of weather, I guess all you can do is bloom where planted and keep us entertained with posts like this one. Happy Sunday.

  10. Katie we woke up to new snow here this morning; nothing like you have though. Stay warm and tucked inside. Love all of these gorgeous images especially the outdoor terrace looking out to the sea!! Heavenly!

  11. Thanks for the dose of pretty, we too are getting MORE snow but not the one foot they were originally thinking, somewhere between 6-8"...still enough to make mess of things.....winter is getting old and I have had enough!
    Loved the pretty pictures and hope you are warm and cozy and ready for the game!

  12. A good laugh and sleep - amen to that! So hope you are digging out and sitting by a nice warm fire for the super bowl (and having great snacks!) Happy Sunday!

  13. SOUNDS Like your doing OKAY..........where is the MISTER?I'm with YA SISTER about the CAFE and the VINO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Can you believe this snow?!?!?! Enough already!!
