Our Cape on Cabot Road
My updated name and photo for my blog.
My cape is an expanded Cape that is sage green with black shutters. It was built in the early 1960’s and was the home my husband grew up in.
After several expensive attempts of live topiaries, I finally gave up and got artificial ones.
Back yard pea stone patio area.
Great space on the porch to read a book.

Since these photos were taken, I have had floors refinished in Espresso. Kitchen photos will be updated soon.
Buffett which is great for storage and display
One of my favorite pieces- vintage wood 3 tier server
Got a little carried away for photo shoot and displayed lemonade-Dont’ fall for it!
Putting a fireplace in here was one of the best things we ever did! In the colder months, we light a fire almost nightly.
