We think your mom/aunt/granny/fabulous female in your life would love any one of these gifts on our list!

We did the legwork and visited each of these 10 Litchfield County businesses to get the low-down on what they consider is THE perfect Mother’s Day gift.

Check it out, and remember, we always approve of treating thine own self!

We admit it. We’re a couple of women who really, really, like clothes. We’d almost go as far as to call fashion our hobby! Hence, when we knew we were going to be visiting Winvian Farm for an upcoming Getaway feature, we wanted to look the part. We decided that J. McLaughlin had the look we were going for. Pretty, wearable, casual, chic, and amazing quality fabrics.

So, in true blogging fashion, we decided to make a day/blog post out of our visit to Washington Depot. Here’s “A day in the Depot!”

Even though at the time of writing this it’s snowing in Litchfield County…it IS spring! We visited J. McLaughlin (Washington Depot) to try on their new spring collection and present to you our favorite pieces! Get ready, the weather will surely reflect the season any day now!

Everything but flowers! Flowers are slightly obvious, but sure, get those too – he or she is worth it! For extra points, and gifts they’ll want to show off on Facebook or Instagram, read on.

And for the record, we believe the first person you should love is you, so go ahead and treat yo self to one of these irresistible suggestions!

Brilliant idea: share this post with whoever you’d like to drop a massive hint…

Eric and Sherry Leitz are the couple behind “Leitz” – a luxury leather accessories brand. Eric makes each item by hand whether it’s a signature handbag, a monogrammed wine carrier, or a fabulous belt. Sherry manages the business and assists Eric with design. We got to hang out with them at their beautiful home in Washington, learn what goes into making one of these beauties of a handbag, and sip Aperol – our new favorite cocktail – thanks guys! 

We were excited to attend the Housatonic Valley Association Benefit Auction on Sunday, November 8th, an event we’ve heard so much about over the years. This is THE fundraising event in Litchfield County, with the who’s who of the county and beyond, in attendance. The event brings people from all walks of life together, with one common goal: to raise a bunch of money to protect the Housatonic River Valley.

Unlocking Litchfield was invited to attend and cover the After School Art Program’s Celebration of Young Writers 10th anniversary event on May 30th. We’d heard wonderful things, so we were excited to get our casual chic on, head over to The Gunnery in Washington, and see what it was all about.
