RELIVING THE DREAM AT WING COTTAGE

This past weekend I made a return visit to my friend's dreamy Wing Cottage in New York's Duchess County town, Clinton Corners.  It just gets better and better.  Her long time friend (both of them having had residences in the Hamptons, and currently, in Manhattan) was also there for a visit.   The concoction... the most delightful trio of female energy.  A love for farmhouses, rural landscapes, old books, home interiors, antiques, lazying around, great food, lovable lap dogs, and a screened in porch was the glue that bonded us for the weekend.

Local ventures included lunch at Pine Plains Platter, poking around in A New Leaf Used Books, and dining at Rhinecliff's Chine Rose.  Take a peek at my post from the past to learn about additional sweet spots in the area.

Our stay concluded with an alfresco lunch - a tri tip steak grilled to perfection and a medley of homemade, farm to table salad dishes.  What farm, you ask?  Well, it's the one nestled right within the rolling hills of my friend's property.

This morning I'm back to reality, albeit refreshed, satisfied and still basking in the glow of my weekend visit to heaven on earth.

Do stay tuned...... you wouldn't want to miss seeing Wing Cottage in autumn, would you?
