Portland, ME

Mike and I were up in Newburyport for the long weekend and decided to take a day trip to Portland, Maine.  It's only a little over an hour trip from Newburyport which is amazing to me.  I really thought MA and ME were a lot further apart.  Sadly, I had to look at Google Maps to visualize it (apparently my geography stinks.)  Anyway, Portland is a fantastic seaport city full of cobblestone streets and rustic charm. 

You know you're in Maine when... you see huge stacks of lobster pots!

Cobblestone streets are my fave.

I didn't realize that Portland was situated on a big hill.

Of course, whenever I'm in a new city I always manage to find a great home store.  I stumbled across Nicola's Homes and instantly felt a connection.

I think my favorite thing about seaport towns are their hanging wooden signs. They exude character.

Vietri Dinnerware

Gorgeous upholstered furniture

A rowboat filled with pillows... reminds me of this.

Beautiful bedding

I loved this punched tin lampshade.

These are my new favorite candles, Ana CandlesTara also sells them in her store.

Fun printed pillows and a handsome orange dresser

Bags made to look vintage are fun.

A great store inspires and this one certainly did.

Oh my goodness... I love Portland SO much! It is one of my favorite cities for a getaway. Incredible food scene, adorable boutiques, creative shops, and true scenic beauty.

I can't wait to head back up to Maine this summer. So glad you two had a great time there!
