Enjoy your weekend!


  1. They all look so inviting, but I think I like the Lenox Mass. one the best.The bed looks really cozy and those little tables for dining are very elegant. Nice selections!

  2. I like the Birchwood best, too. But not the snowy pic of the inn. I can't believe tomorrow is August. :(

  3. I mean the day after tomorrow. Even thinking about winter is messing with my brain!

  4. Love the snowy shot. I do love winter snow.

    As for weekend plans, I think I might make the trip to Providence to see Waterfire. I've always wanted to check it out.

  5. Liberty Green B&B looks so cozy and quaint. Love it! And the first picture of it with the fall foliage made my heart skip a beat!!

  6. Oh my gosh..I love them all but especially the Birchwood Inn, who would not just really fall in love with that B&B??

    Our day will be celebrated by staying inside. It is terrible 'hot & humid' here in Iowa:( Maybe a good movie?? hummmmm

  8. i love these houses. they remind me of my treks in the new england snow to see walden pond..

  9. Beautiful B&B's again.
    Thank you for your comments and to answer your question on the inn on P.E.I. it is a beautiful inn in a small village near good beaches. I think you would love it-I do drive by's but have not been in it for a long time and only the old inn, not the new carriage house.
    Prince Edward Island is beautiful-I think you would love to visit and I even know of a nice garden to visit.Ha!


  10. Right about now snow looks good to anyone on Long Island. We have had an unusually hot and dry summer. Old houses do something for me. Nice photos,

  11. hi erin....someone else asked me for the tortellini recipe today too. i just made it up. i used pasta sheets and the filling was just pumpkin, mascarpone cheese, nutmeg, s&p, cinnamon and a little sugar. the sauce was diced scallions sauteed in browned butter with a lot of chopped fresh sage.

  12. #3 is my favorite! I'm not a big fan of snow anymore after living in PGH for 15 years but I would certainly suffer in one of those B&B's for a long weekend. Soooo beautiful!

  13. I have a friend who is moving to Jamaica Vt....I had never heard of it....and now a b and b from there....:)----<

  14. Hi Erin! I love all your charming New England photos! I feel as though I have gotten out of the shop for a while and enjoy what I moved to New England for, thru you!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for your lovely words on the piece I painted. I really hope to meet you some day. Karen

  15. Being a history nut and a GW admirer I'd chose the Liberty Green Inn!

    I ♥ Susan Branch and I'm also Yankee Magazine subscriber even though I've always lived in NYC! I'm becoming a follower so I can go to NE vicariously with you ;)

  16. saw you at octoberfarm this morning and came by to see what was up....always get a HAPPY off your blog....

  17. Oh, the second one is my favorite. Of course, it may have something to do with the shots being taken in the fall, my favorite time of year. No, that's not just it. It's a beautiful place and I just love it. I can't wait to come to New England!!! :-)


Thanks for your thoughts!
