Pretty Collections and Inspiration

My adventures in and around the Lancaster PA area have lead to so much inspiration.


With a local farmers market offering a riotous rainbow of gorgeous plants at rock bottom prices, I am desperate to dig new flower beds in our townhouse garden and create a living masterpiece. Alas all of my gardening tools are in storage and I really don’t want to go out and buy any more! Roll on the house hunting coming to an end and a new garden to dabble about in.


I have become a bit of a fan of the Whoopie Pie, not the healthiest treat in the universe but oh-so-tasty.

I am a firm believer of a “little of what you fancy” when it come to diet, but I am sure I am working off the Whoopie Pie calories with my numerous weekly hikes. If I could spend everyday exploring the many trails of the area I would! I have even bought a set of hiking poles to alienate the pain in my old granny knees (they really work)



I have been hiking a lot with Meetup groups and the photo above was taken on one I took with “Into the wild w/ Gypsy”  The emphasis is on having an adventure and learning about the local flora.The rivers edge below this stunning dam had an amazing collection of driftwood, I am so pleased to have found a new source as it is one of my favorite raw materials. I have got quite a few creative projects planned.


There are so many beautiful handmade products to be had here. These pretty birdhouses really caught my eye.
