I have been wanting to share some photos of our trip to New England over Memorial Day weekend. A change of scenery is always a great way to start the Summer.
Water, a rocky coastline and boats, I could look at this view all day.
The rosa rugosa were in bloom and so colorful.
The boats and water definitely influenced my weekend finds. I was in the mood for some rustic cabin decorating and couldn't resist these vintage galvanized bait buckets. The larger one has beautiful red graphics and I love the oval shape of the smaller wade bucket. They will be great additions to my son's nautical/americana themed room.
When my husband saw that the larger bucket still had it's original insulated liner,
he ran out to buy some live eels and took it fishing.
I have a photo of the eels in my pretty bucket,
but it is too slimy to post.
The striped bass he caught is a little easier on the eyes and tasted yummy.
And best of all, my husband thinks that my new find is a keeper.
