Another amazing sneak peek… or the calm before the storm!!

Yesterday Audrey  I took off and I drove about 90 minutes southeast almost to Horseneck Beach for a shoot of a gorgeous colonial home! With a major very unseasonal snowy blizzard coming later in the day, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to concentrate taking photos, but Susan and Tom’s beautiful home and yard were just the ticket to take my mind off the 12” plus snow we were expecting. As Audrey sat with Susan and helped her with the homeowner’s questionnaire, I happily clicked away at room after room of wonderful prims, antiques and folk art.

Susan and Tom treated us to Panera for lunch and after a short break, I quickly got back to work as the rain and wind howled outside. Thankfully, I took exterior shots when we arrive in the morning!!

Halfway home, the snow started in earnest and the roads were slushy and messy but we made it home to my house and Audrey then made it the additional 50 minutes home from here. And did it snow. My area got 12+ inches and further west and north got many more inches. With the leaves on trees still, it created a very dangerous situation and broken limbs took down many power lines and blocked roads and even railroads. Many (hundreds of thousands) in MA are without power still including my parents and my son, DIL and Lili. They have been here all day and may be staying the night if power is not restored and I have been a busy Meemee with a 2 year old underfoot all day. Lili is calling for me to read to her, s I will leave you with these sneak peeks!!

Oh Linda....I've been sitting here waiting. Happy to know you and Audrey were able to make it and back safely.

What a wonderful shoot this was. There are so so so many things in these photos I would love to own. The porch with those pumpkins are awesome. Is that a black pumpkin I see resting in the bottom urn? Love it.

Salt glaze, Firkins, buckets, ironware, tinware, treenware, etc etc etc. What more can a prim girl want...Love it all. So looking foward to seeing this spread in the future.

Hope all is still well at your home. I know it's a shock to so many with this weather and all. Just be safe and warm and enjoy your family.

Susan and Tom...Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Linda and Audrey, you too just keep Bringing It!!! :D

Warm Autumn Blessings,
Marlene
