Inspired @ Snapdragon : Harlem Love Birds

Chris Cammock

We met Quiana at Alt Summit in January and couldn't wait for her to come visit us at the Inn when we found out she was a fellow East Coaster. You can find her spreading her enthusiasm for life, motherhood, and childhood on her blog Harlem Lovebirds. We were thrilled when her  family (of almost four) came up to Vermont for their last trip as a family of three. Here's what Quiana felt inspired by: 

"Babymoon" is a relatively new term thrown about when expectant couples embark on a final getaway before baby arrives. Instead my husband and I thought it might be special to turn our visit to the Snapdragon Inn into a familymoon. Some of my earliest and fondest memories are of me and my parents when I was 3 and 4 years old - before my 3 siblings arrived, and I thought it would be an opportunity to provide the same for my 3 1/2 year old daughter, Virginia. Being able to escape NYC metro, which leaves my little family quite tense at times, was a welcome retreat. As we made our way north seeing the cityscape literally transform before our eyes into a more natural terrain brought a sense of peace to us. Because our visit was during Easter weekend it was an especially holy time for us as well. Being able to do something so simple as walk to church on Easter Sunday morning and feel welcomed by the church community was a special memory I know we'll always cherish. The heritage of Windsor was especially felt that day, and we hope to carry the beauty and tranquility of the Snapdragon Inn with us especially during the long, sleepless nights ahead.

Inspired @ Snapdragon is a new series of guest posts from bloggers, writers, artists and creative visitors to the Inn.  We've asked guests to share an inspired thought from their time at the Inn. Windsor and the surrounding villages used to be a gathering place for creatives and this is our nod to that incredible legacy. 

This series is supported by the Cornish Colony Arts Council whose aim is to preserve and promote creativity in Windsor, Vermont and the surrounding area. 

 
 

John Denver + fortune tellers = Snapdragon Valentines

Chris Cammock

I know Valentine's day is long gone and people's minds are on Easter and Fourth of July but here are the valentines we made for our guests this year.  

Design Mom always has great inspiration and we liked the idea of this classic paper fortune teller that we made heaps of when we were kids. We called out to our internet amigos and got lots of suggestions for love song lyrics that we used instead of fortunes.

Uh, I'm not gonna lie, it was pretty time consuming but luckily, two of my besties came up to visit me that night and we spent the day cutting, writing, and painting these babies. The best day ever.  It also snowed 18" that night so we had nowhere to go. I literally had to snowshoe down to the Inn to set them up in the rooms with some chocolates and these awesome paper hearts that Cricut sent us (Alt just keeps on giving) 

Nothing says love quite like John Denver's, "Annie's Song" so we made this little video showing it off. Can we do them again next year?
