Hello there, my friends!~
I am back! Loaded up with pictures, momentos and fond memories of New England and my friends Emily and Alyson and their sweetness in shuffling this pregnant lady from one corner of the northeast to the other!
I’ve got tons of things to share with you— just a tiny taste of my trip in available to look at through my instagram (see the sidebar or follow audreyeclectic81 through your own account) which is good, because I’ve got several secret commissions lined up that I can’t show off til they’re safe at home!
Some of the highlights of the trip included— touring Louis May Alcott’s home, Orchard House; peering at and and rambling through many gorgeous antique homes; standing on the shores of Salem Harbor at dusk; having clam chowder— the real stuff! And lobster pizza; driving through the brilliant autumn hills of Vermont and New Hampshire; seeing the Tasha Tudor Musuem….and so much more!
At the moment though— the reality of doing laundry, catching up on housework and little one’s school work, preparing to enter my third trimester, and settling in for autumn in Oklahoma.
Ironically– this trip also made me appreciate home. Instead of making me dread coming back, it gave me fresh inspiration for both art and home. New ideas for decorating, new meals to share with family and friends, and new scenes to put to paint.
I cant wait to share it all with you as well!~!

Orchard House? Tasha Tudor? Cannot wait to hear more! And welcome back!
You not only peered at antique homes, you stayed in one! 🙂 Glad you are back, safe and sound and inspired!
Welcome Back!! It all sounds exciting and looking forward to learning more about all of the historic places you visited.
So happy to hear you had a great time! And I'm thrilled that you got to go to the Tasha Tudor Museum, yourself. 🙂 New England is a special place, and I'm glad you got to experience it in the fall. Some day you will have to venture to the other New England States – like Connecticut. Rhode Island and Maine. 🙂 I will have to venture to Louisa May Alcott's home, myself – I've never been there!
Can't wait to see your photos! Sounds like you had a great time.
Loving the first post. That is always one of my DREAM locations, Old Burial Hill, ever since I found out it's the place where the scene where Max meets the bullies on his bike is filmed in Hocus Pocus.
Welcome back Heather! So glad you enjoyed your taste of New England. Wow, you crammed a lot in and saw some great sites. I can't believe you were so close to me in Marblehead and Salem! I'm over in Beverly – just across the water. I'm sure you took in all the history here with your wonderful artistic eye. Enjoy the rest of autumn – your favorite time of year!
