Calypso in the Country

“Hi! My name is Shelley and I love the Caribbean. Since I can’t live there, I try to bring a bit of paradise into my life in the New Jersey countryside. My blog is a mixture of home decor projects and inspiration, travel experiences, life in the country and island dreaming. So grab a pina colada and join me on a journey to add a little calypso to everyday life!”
