Romance of the Rose

So, about that snow last night...

There was none.

After all the uproar, there was no more than a few flakes in the sky all day. So, all my toasty "snowed-in" plans were squashed. But I made the best of it and lit some candles, raised the heat a notch, and baked three loaves of pumpkin bread anyways. Yum.

I'm just about to go out with a friend now, but I thought I'd share with you all this beautiful summer dress I found on The Vermont Country Store website:

How beautiful is that? And isn't the name so befitting?
Looks like it came right off the pages of a Jane Austen novel!

I simply have to buy this for my trip in June.
I can see it now now... standing on the ferry, looking out towards the waves,
the soft airy cotton blowing in the summer breeze, tickling my legs...

Can you tell that I miss the summertime? :p


Hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend!


  1. :) I like this post. Did you check out the Jan/Feb 2010 edition of Yankee magazine? There are some beautiful images of New England in the winter..... so lovely that you will (ALMOST) forget how wonderful summer is. Your pumpkin bread sounds delish! Happy Sunday!

  2. i love your blog! and i love new england! we go there every fall and stay in rockport mass. bummer that the snow missed you but now i am looking at thousands of dollars in damage so i sort of wish this one had missed us! i am so happy to hear you are a fellow halloween worshiper! did you look at all of the halloween stuff on my blog? i have a huge witch collection and even own the original spell book from practical magic! if you haven't seen it yet hop over when you have time and click on it on my sidebar.

  3. B-mused, thank you! I did indeed see those photos, and they were lovely :) New England certainly "takes the cake" on every season, winter included! Have a Happy Sunday as well!♥

    Jaz, thanks so much! I'm sorry that the snow caused a lot of damage for you :( Hope everything will turn out okay.
    I instantly became ecstatic after seeing your Halloween things! I am, in fact, a crazy Halloween lover. My house during Halloween is "that house" on the block where people take pictures in front of :p I basically celebrate the holiday year round.
    If you have a Livejournal, I run two Halloween communities on there in case you're interested :) If you don't, that's okay, come this August, the majority of my posts will be Halloween centered :p
    Oh, and in response to your other comment, I'll definitely check out your Salem pictures! I had so much fun there last October... I'd love to see your perspective as well♥

  5. Hi Erin,
    I love that dress, so romantic looking! I love New England too, it's such a gorgeous place! Cindy

  6. Hi Erin! Love the dress, looks like Laura Ingalls to me....don't forget to wear the Lemon Verbena cologne with it! :-) Thanks for all your sweet comments on my blog. The summer WILL come again, but it sure is hard to imagine now! Luckily you are here to spread sunshine! xo Rachel

  7. well erin...hang on to your long winter underwear cause i think this storm is heading your way. i have been tracking it all day and it is going to come to a head right over nyc. it is light fluffy snow this time with high winds so there will be lots of drifting. right about 4>00 pm on monday...they are saying that you will get about 14-18 inches. have fun with your snow. at least it should not be as damaging as ours was.

  8. Thanks for the information, this is very useful. Allow me to share a health article here, which gods are beneficial to us. Thank you :)
