Life at the Nathaniel Morris Inn.......reflections of an Innkeeper's journey; past and present. Living in a lovely small town on the New Jersey coast......what it's like to live here, how I got here and what I'm doing with this interesting and challenging profession/lifestyle. And always lurking in the background are my flea market and thrifting adventures.

I Got a Little Carried Away

I had a guest call me a few days before he was to arrive. He asked if I would put a bouquet of daisies in his room so that they would be there when he and his girlfried arrived.
So yesterday after I finished up with breakfast, I went to a local florist and gift store called Muellers. Here's what I got:

a cute handpainted barrel for my Nantucket Suite....they have a little greenhouse with old stuff. I always find something in there
Mary Englebright pillow

summer reading for my guests
A Midsummer Night's Dream miniature book

Teacup Wind Chimes
And, of course.........

A beautiful bouquet of daisies.....


  1. Oh you had fun!!! I love to find just the right thing to add to a collection or room I already have! Love it and how sweet to want daisy's in the room when they arrive..he sounds like a good guy! Happy 4th of July! Hugs, Linda

  2. How sweet and I love all your new finds. That ghost book look interesting. Hope you missed all the nasty storms sweeping through. We are fine here- just dry.
    Mary E stuff is so fun and I love that pillow!

  3. What a great Innkeeper!! Happy 4th of July!!

  4. Aw! Your so thoughtful. You did an amazing job at setting the mood.
    Happy 4th of July Gail.
    Hugs Rosemary...xoxo

  5. I think you found some great pieces to add to the Inn, Gail.
    I'm sure your client will be happy with the daisy's you found for his girlfriend, also.
    Have a great holiday week.

  6. OH wow. I just love that barrel and how sweet of you to go out of your way to help a guest out. He's a thinker! It looks so inviting and dreamy there on the bed. SWEET!
