Hi there, everybody — sending you all sunny greetings from beautiful Cape May!

We had to wait for the last week of summer, but we are finally enjoying a 3-day vacation in Cape May, NY.

New York Avenue in Cape May, NJ

I’m trying to get some work done here, but I didn’t have time to post my next “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party (hint – link up so I can feature you next week!).

Instead, I wanted to share with you how it felt to see Lady Liberty up close for the first time. As an expat, it was pretty emotional for me.

I was able to shoot some amazing pictures from the ferry, so don’t miss that post: Seeing the Statue of Liberty — Only Took 21 Years.

Grandma rented a house in Cape May like last year and our days are filled with hanging out with family, going to the beach, lots of snacking, a little bit of shopping, and yesterday I got to go thrifting.

So I’m all set for next Monday’s thrifting post — I can’t wait to show you what I scored at my new favorite store, the West End Garage.

Cape May is known for its quaint houses, and I like taking walks here just to look around.

I get a ton of great DIY ideas in stores like this.

Cape May looks like the perfect spot to relax for a while. Looks like a setting for writing a novel.

Hi Rhonda, totally! It would be a great spot to relax and write a book. Thanks for coming by!

Looks like you had a fabulous vacation!!!


Dagmar ~ Dagmar's Home August 27, 2014 at 11:21 AM

Hi Susan, we did! And guess what, I went back and bought those yellow stools for L’s room, on sale. My one Cape May splurge that will now always remind me of our fun vacation. Thanks for your comment!
