New England Trip - Portsmouth NH

I know it's taking me a long time to show you the photos from my New England trip a year ago last spring, but, better late then never right?  One of my favorite places we visited was Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  It had beautiful homes and a wonderful down town area, lots of shops and restaurants.
One of my sister's favorite shops was the Alex and Ani jewelry shop.  I had never heard of it before so that goes to show how out of the loop I am!  She added to her collection and I bought a bracelet for Kate.  We both could have done a lot of damage there!  Unfortunately I didn't think about taking any photos while we were in there.  We really enjoyed out time in Portsmouth, would highly recommend a visit if you're in the area!  

This was one of our favorite restaurants, very funky,
the portions were huge and the food was sooo good!
They had all kinds of crazy things hanging from
the ceiling and on the walls



This is what I had, the omelet and raisin toast were huge
and oh so good! As you can see, I was more interested in
eating then taking a photo!

My sister ordered sweet potato fries and got this huge platter

Gorgeous houses on the water
A lot of the houses in New England are adorned with
wonderful weather vanes, this one was one of
our favorites
  Till next time.......
 I will be joining these parties:

Fun Tartan Parade

I'm so honored that Alison from The Polo House Blog asked me to be a part of her Tartan Parade!  Tartan and plaid are two of my favorite patterns especially around the holidays.  Here are some of my favorite things made in my favorite pattern!


I'd love these on my tree


I'm not a hot chocolate fan but I would love these for my coffee!

I'm sort of a pillow freak and love every one of these

How cute would these be with a great pair of jeans and a cozy sweater!

I loooove this  for a winter wedding!

The perfect Christmas wreath, so my style!

I'd have a hard time not wearing this jacket every day! 

Tell me, who doesn't love a guy in a plaid shirt and jeans!
(couldn't resist a little eye candy for you ladies)

For those of you who like a little more sophistication in
your man, I've thrown this guy in just for you


Well, this is the end of my "Tartan Parade" all wrapped up with a Tartan bow! 
Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did putting it together!

If you love plaid and tartan, please visit Alison at the
for a list of the other bloggers in her fun Tartan Parade!

PS.  Here's a photo of my little Trick or Treaters!

The Princess and her Kitty

Till next time......

This week I will be joining these parties:
