Checkered Bows and Starfish

I thought I might share some of the fun design/decor things I see while taking my walks through “Southie”, my Boston neighborhood. I always feel so inspired walking around here! Especially around the holidays.

Here is a wreath that I thought was interesting, cute even, with its black and white checkered bow. What do you think?

I am always pleasantly surprised as I come to the end of one of our streets and this is my view. I just love being near the water!

And here is a wreath I saw on a beautiful home as I walked around the corner in the above picture. Isn’t it perfect for a house right across the street from the ocean? I like the little starfish tucked in this classy looking wreath!
