Martha and Her Vineyard

Thursday, August 27, 2009

I have a friend who's visiting Martha's Vineyard right now....can you say jealous? Seriously, I would give my left pinky finger to spend a week in "The Vineyard" right now. You know, with its charming little villages, adorable shingled cottages, and salty ocean breeze. Ahhh, that's my idea of heaven.

Well...since we can't all join my friend in "The Vineyard" I thought I'd give us a little eyecandy so we can pretend.

2nd floor porches are to die for! Especially, when they look out over that view. And hardwood floors polished to that shine ... I could easily get used to that kind of life:)

I've never been to Martha's Vineyard but it's definitely on my TO GO TO list. Now I'm certain I want to go after seeing the pretty pictures. :)

Mmmm, to be back in MV would be heavenly this year, unfortunately my in-laws aren't renting a house this year like usual. Your pics will have to do...

Hey, AN! Is your friend named Barack or Michelle? LOL
Just an FYI, you aren't "in" the Vineyard, you're "on" it. That's the lingo of the Cape & Islands.

Oh, that is heaven. I want to be there RIGHT now too.

I LOVE Martha's Vineyard! I go every summer and it's like Heaven on earth. The houses/cottages are gorgeous, and I long to have a home I can decorate "Vineyard Style"! Thanks for posting this!

Brenda said...

I love your choice of images! Good taste! I'd love to be there as well. But instead I'm here, in Texas. Nothing to crow about. But I'm happy in my cozy little house.

Wow...I haven't had the chance to spend too much time out East, but adore every single one of those images. How happy would I be to live near that...

Thanks for sharing...

I am a long LONG way from Martha's Vineyard here in Kansas. Although I can walk out on my deck to enjoy our 60 degree Sunday morning I can't seem to muster up the imagination of that ocean breeze. Sigh. Thanks for the fun.

Emma said...

Thank you, I needed a vacation!!

Love the pictures - for those looking for a way to visit the Vineyard without having to spend $$$$, have a look at www.tashmooboardinghouse.com or our facebook site. It's an old summer boarding house that we took over in 2009 and are slowly doing over as we can afford it and as sustainably as possible. This year's project has been renovating the original 1900 windows and adding an outside shower.

Sweet ideas! Thanks for posting. When I was looking for new kitchen cabinets I went with these guys. Great prices and selection.
