This weekend Audrey and I stayed much closer to home for another photo shoot and I was pretty happy about that! Last weekend was fun but I love traveling the back roads of central MA. There is nothing like a fall drive in NE in October! We even got to see some pretty late in the season foliage.
Audrey and I have been to so many wonderful prim homes and it is always so much fun to drive up for the first time and see if the outside matches what we have glimpsed in pics of the inside. Living in a very modest split entry myself, I know that exteriors don’t always giveaway what you find inside. Well Saturday , the homes exterior told the story of what we would find inside! I wish I could show you the whole shebang, but I have to save the full on shots for the magazine. I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks of the outside….
Oh lookey lookey – what do I spy here?? Is this a creation by Lana Testa of Winterberry Prims? Since this wonderful home belongs her very dear friends Linda, something tells me it is!
Nice huh???? And it was so nice to hear Audrey, Lana and Linda happily chatting away while I snapped pictures around the house. After I was done, we all sat down for a treat of Linda’s yummy pumpkin bread. It was fun to catch up with an old friend and make a new friend too! Thank you Linda for inviting us into your lovely home and making us feel so welcome!
