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

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 🙂

Common Ground

I made it to the Common Ground Country Fair this year, a haven for agricultural producers and creative makers, animal lovers and foodies, and just plain regular people like me. I’ve always wanted to check out this fair since reading about it on soulemama, yet something inevitably came up during the notoriously busy month of …


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 🙂
