I'm sure I'm not the only one that keeps one of these things, as a matter of fact, I don't think there's a human on earth that doesn't have some sort of wishlist!

So I thought I'd show you a few New England-y items that I want more than anything:

This is probably the number one item on my wish list. They're so beautiful! And this specific company has a variety of Old-New-England-themed designs that you can add on your bag  (both on the outside and inside).
I'd like the Marblehead Harbor design on the outside

And the carved Whale piece on the inside

How lovely is that?

Hopefully, I'll receive it as a birthday gift before my trip this summer (hint, hint, Mom!)

I've only recently heard about this "much sought-after" Cape Cod trademark once I read this particular article... and I've got to admit, I soon became very intrigued! 
Supposedly it's so popular that you have to wait on a huge line while the owners permit only two people at a time to enter. Sounds a little snobbish? Perhaps... but I'm sucker for anything "Cape Cod," and anything that makes me feel like a native, so this pretty bracelet easily earned its spot on my list!


What can I say? I'm also a sucker for anything nautical. 
These would be adorable for the summertime!


When I saw this coat, my jaw dropped. It's so cute!
Right now it's on sale, and still a little pricey, so I'm hoping it'll get lower in the near future
... keeping my eyes open!


I found this book at my friend's house on the very same table, and the very same day, that I found my first Susan Branch book (that was one epic afternoon!)
To put it plainly, I might have drooled on the pages.
There's nothing I adore more in this world than old houses. By "old houses," I don't mean Victorians from the 1880s. More like rickety, creaky, magnificent saltboxes, colonials, and capes from the 17th, 18th, and very early 19th century (the older the better). I especially prefer old Captain or fishermen homes in quaint seaside villages that appear frozen in time (is that specific enough for you? :p)
 So, with all that said, I'd be ecstatic to add this book to my collection!


What are some of your New England wishes?

  4. Hey Erin!
    Kary who commented above is a friend of mine...the world is so small! :)
    I like to say I'm homesick for New England even though I've never lived there.
    I finally dragged my husband to Cape Cod last fall. Was amazing! Read all about it on my blog. :)
    Funny thing is, I ALSO found my love for New England through Sue's book.
    I think we're going to be good friends...
