Where is Oyster Pond??

I wish I knew where it was because I would have to take a road trip to see it, but I do know that it must be a beautiful place! I found this pretty painting at Goodwill and on the back of it it says Oyster pond woods hole in Spring, someone loved it enough to paint it and the colors are just perfect especially next to the new color of my tv armoire (;  Slowly but surely my house is coming together, I have been trying to simplify my decorating which is easier said than done, I am getting there though. Next on my list is painting my hutch in my dining room a creamy white and I am also adding unfinished cabinets from Lowes to my laundry room for more storage, I can't wait to get started on that project, I have an 11 ft wall to work with in there and I am hoping to add wood counter tops from Ikea also, I'm so excited about it. I will be sure to keep you updated!

I love this painting so much!

It is truly amazing what you might find at thrift stores and yard sales. The previous owner would be so happy to know that you are now enjoying this wonderful scene.

I love that painting Kelly. Sometimes Goodwill is the best place. Did you paint the frame white or was it already painted?

I'm so happy you are back:)

Your new painting is beautiful! It feels great to get a deal, doesn't it? LOL! Your new projects sound exciting.:)

I LOVE that painting!! I believe I can help you locate Oyster Pond. It is located on beautiful Olde Cape Cod right here in Falmouth or Woods Hole, Massachusetts. I actually just found this photograph on-line for you to see:

The summer is a BEAUTIFUL time to visit the Cape! Hope you are truly able to visit Oyster Pond someday!

The painting looks fantastic in your home!!!

Yes, I was going to say, if the painting says "Woods Hole", my guess would be it's somewhere around Woods Hole, Massachusetts. I think there's some sort of naval marine biology center located up there. Bob Ballard, who "found" the Titanic, worked there for quite a while, and might still, for all I know.

/end random fact. Lovely painting!

知道他有了外遇
面對他的低聲下氣妳冷嘲熱諷、無理取鬧
妳瘋狂似的大吵大鬧
甚至到他的公司去亂、向他的親友抱怨、向鄰居們哭訴…
妳把他的外遇鬧的人盡皆知
最後,妳把他的愧疚消耗殆盡…
最後,妳把他想要回頭的念頭打消…
最後,妳自己把他推向外遇的第三者身邊…

Hope you have a nice day.

Hey when you find out where it is and you need a travel companion, you know where to find me!!! I know Idaho is a long way fronm Florida, but....
I LOVE the changes you are making in your beautiful home. That TV cabinet is so lovely in that color! I get a little crazy with the decorating sometimes and have to go back to where I came from once in awhile. I don't think I am very adventurous.
I love your new painting, it looks like the perfect place to relax and enjoy a beautiful life.

Hi Kelly!

I just adore your style! We have a lot in common! One of my favorite sites is The Old Painted Cottage and I found your beautiful pictures of your sweet home and camper there. I can't wait to check out more that you have to offer. You are a very talented lady and I am thankful you are sharing yourself with us. Keep up the good work girlie!
Blessings! Tammy

外遇---偷來的時間、偷來的伴侶、偷來的愛情
或許新鮮刺激,或許瘋狂美好,但這一切,終究是偷來的…
外遇傷害了一個幸福的家庭
或許你會說:問題其實早已存在,外遇並不是傷害的唯一因素
但是內心深處其實你知道,這只是外遇的藉口!
建築在傷害別人之下所得到的愛情,終究難以幸福…

I've been to Woods Hole in MA. That's where you get on the ferry to go to Martha's Vineyard! It's beautiful in that area!!! Your painting is lovely!! I love the blue armoire too!

Hello my friend....boy just let me take a little break and you have redecorated your whole house. You are amazing my friend. I would have loved for you to have come along with me to London. I think you would have had to have Rachel's new sofa and the tablecloth as the colors would look amazing with your new color scheme. I will be posting pictures in a few days of what her shop actually looked like without all the people there. It was beautiful. Do you follow the Junk Gypsies? They will be doing a TV special and she told me they are staying at her home. Talk about some blessed ladies. Well good to see you are blogging again. I got bit by the FB bug and am weaning myself away.
Hugs
Becky

What a pretty painting! Do you happen to watch Brothers and Sisters? Your post reminded me of that show, they were searching for this mysterious lake the whole season.

I love your TV armoire painted that color, it looks beautiful! Looking forward to seeing your new projects!

茜茜知道他有了外遇
他變得春風滿面,嘴裡總是哼著歌曲
他開始變得有耐心聽她說話、會買禮物給她、甚至帶她出遊
茜茜知道這是因為他對外遇有愧疚
她沒有揭穿丈夫的外遇,甚至享受這樣的生活
茜茜偷偷的跟姐妹滔說:感謝老公的外遇帶來更美好的夫妻生活!

人家都說男人到大陸都會外遇包二奶
老婆淚眼說擔心他外遇
他了解老婆的擔心,只好用錢去彌補分離的缺憾
漸漸的,老婆的電話愈來愈少…
她說,她是怕自己太依賴
漸漸的,他知道其實是她有了外遇
於是,面對自己外遇的行為,他忽然覺得好過了些…
