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 🙂

A Quiet Winter

Ah winter. Quiet, rest, hibernation. Those “activities” are generally my over-arching winter goals. Yes, I miss outdoors time and flowers and long hours of light and warm air. But the calming nature of winter, the spare beauty, and the indoor coziness just about make up for it. This particular winter was quite restful for me, …


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 🙂
