Friend Feature  Shop Local: Found Home in Chatham, MA

I recently discovered a very special new store that has cropped up in Chatham, Massachusetts, and everyone who frequents Cape Cod just has to know about it!  Found Home is the creative genius of Jennifer Runnels, who pours her heart and soul (and unbelievable talent) into this little shop full of gorgeous finds for the home.  


Drawing on her training as a fine artist, and twenty years of experience working in the furniture and interior design fields, she has a special eye for unique and sophisticated home design. (more…)

CMH Studio  Wonderful Woodland Pillows by Cheeky Monkey Home

I am finally ready for fall.  Bring on the crisp weather and the deep, vivid colors of the season!  At Cheeky Monkey Home, we are expanding our Woodland pillow collection, with new colorways and some fun new designs making their debut this winter.


I am excited to be experimenting with some new contoured designs.  I am obsessed with the hideaways that animals create in the woods, and I am working on a tree-trunk design with peek-a-boo spots for woodland creatures.  What do you think so far? (more…)  

Tried & True  Family Scene — Playing Hooky at Migis Lodge

I cannot wait to share this adventure with you!  My two sons and I surprised my husband with a birthday getaway to Migis Lodge this weekend (well, actually Sunday-Tuesday!).  Migis Lodge is a fabulous family resort on Sebago Lake in South Casco, Maine.  It has been a family run operation since 1926, and it is a truly idyllic spot for the most adventurous and the most serene of guests.


Migis Lodge is a rustic and elegant retreat surrounded by views of Sebago Lake.  A huge fire burns in the stone fireplace in the main lodge where guests play boardgames and enjoy high tea.  Outstanding meals are served in the lovely dining room overlooking the lake and woods. There are 35 cabins nestled along the shoreline–each one more charming than the last–complete with fireplaces, wet bars and “cabin boys” to bring you ice, stoke your fire, and carry your bags.  We stayed in “Southwind”, the adorable little place shown below. (We were so happy to be upgraded to this three bedroom from another cabin that was smaller but equally charming.) We had four balconies and views over the lake that took our breath away.  Could you ever leave this spot?
