Greetings! Thank you so much for visiting my online space. Here you will find a bit about me and my work, my two shops, and my New England Travel blog, This Place. Thank you for your support and interest in my creative world. I hope my writing and photography will make you smile.


This Place Blog

This Place is a blog which documents the interesting, fun, and beautiful places which I stumble upon or set out to find in New England. This unique area of the world has so many nooks and crannies to explore that are all a relatively short way from home… if you live in New England that is 😉 And even if you aren’t from this area, I hope to give you an idea of what this lovely area of the country is all about. Along with my New England travel posts, I will also share every day items that I find interesting and useful such as home and gardening ideas, various creative projects and inspirations, outside-of-New England travel photos, and literary musings. I hope you find these posts interesting and useful as well, or at least mildly entertaining. And if you live in New England, I hope the next time you have a free afternoon and want to go exploring, you can get some ideas from This Place.
Happy adventuring,
Callista 🙂

Meal Planning

Trying to eat plant-based, non-processed, real FOOD and being organized pretty much go hand in hand. It’s near impossible to make good food choices without a bit of prep work behind the scenes and some thinking ahead. Beautiful salads don’t magically appear I’m afraid. I sure wish they did. So, with all this in mind, …


I’m a dreamer, a doer, a holder-backer, a contradiction. I love the earth and the beauty therein. I am grateful for each day. I know what I want, and what I know, and I also have no idea. I’m figuring things out as I go. I don’t like writing about myself. If you want to find me, see below:

Here is where I can be found on the internet:

Pinterest, where you can see inside my mind (hehe). But seriously, I do try to keep my Pinterest account beautiful and interesting, so be sure to take a gander at it.

Instagram, which highlights my somewhat day-to-day doings.

Goodreads, where I share what I’m reading and occasionally post a poorly crafted book review!

Twitter, where I endeavor somewhat to keep tabs on this crazy world.

Please leave comments on any of my posts if you’d like to reach me.

Thanks for reading ~ Callista 🙂
