These souls never fail to inspire!!!

An honorable mention to goes out to one of my favorite ladies - Racheal Jackson you can see her amazing mind at work on her site: Banyan Bridges - I’m psyched to see this lady IRL in just a few weeks!

These accounts are Interior Design based - I love seeing beautiful spaces and the inspiration behind these spaces. IG is definitively a huge resource but, I still want to read the latest post from Heather Clawson (Habitually Chic is the very first blog I followed). I also receive emails from my friends listed in the sidebar - Artsy, Jane at Home, Room Sauce, Swoon Worthy, The Farmhouse Project, The Makerista, The New England Life and T. Moore Home. My inbox is a busy busy place… but, I relish these clever and original thinkers… popping up and getting my juices flowing!

Til next time!

Brands We Love (part une)

As we all know there are many different types of designs for Websites and Blogs but, my concept for Chaletmomma never wavered - what you see here (minus some tweaks) is the fruition of that dream. One detail that remains extremely important to me was sharing a list of people/sites I admire, support and who support me! You can see them in my sidebar.

I believe in working to lift others up - and knowing what a vast place the interweb is - when I find talent or anything else for that matter I’m excited about - I am compelled to share it.

I joke that like the Ally Sheedy’s character in The Breakfast Club I must dump out my purse and share it’s contents… So friends this week I’m sharing all the Brands We Love with links!

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

Some of these companies are run by very dear friends; while there are a few larger operations. Artsy found me after I wrote a piece which included artist William Eggleston. I love their site!

Beachy Bungalows

Here we are in August - the time of year we always vacationed when I was a kiddo. Which got me thinking about a summer long ago - my folks rented a lovely little shingled bungalow with a private beach for a few weeks in Dennisport, MA - which started me on this piece. Let’s take a look at some of these lovely gems.

There are two vastly different beach towns that my family love. Ocean City, NJ with its Board Walk- filled with rides and yummy treats from Shrivers Candy Store and Manco & Manco Pizza and the beatific Chatham, MA located on the elbow of Cape Cod with it’s pretty shoreline and delightful downtown filled with shops and eateries.
