lake living

we just took a rustic vacation to new hampshire...

we fished
Me trying to catch a dead fish!
my step-daughter caught her first fish!

we had family time and soaked up every bit of day

we dreamed together and made goals together and enjoyed the peace and stillness

we took outdoor showers!

we splashed and swam all day. In and out. In and out. 

We ate homemade ice cream at "The Flying Cow!" Grilled on the huge deck that hung over the lake.

And we laughed all day long, made memories, canoed and enjoyed the lake breezes...

Lake living is for us...;)

$5.00 coffee table turned into this...

I was driving by a yard sale today and I turned around because the table above caught my eye! I purchased it for $5.00 and with help from Ollie the sander (sander is from a store called Ollie's in North Carolina and was sent to me by my cousin Dawn xo, hence the name of it.)
 The natural wood was beginning to shine through and was breathing...THANK YOU!!!!
See that woodlucious wood? All natural with natural knicks! I love it!!!! Come on Ollie do your work!
Sooo....after more sanding and a fresh coat of paint on her legs (Color- Bay Cove Fog) and a fresh coat of Lavender Furniture Wax on top from Sweet Grass Farms. Smells so soothing!
                                TAH-DAH! My new Cafe table...Too nice to call it a coffee table. ;)

bits of my week through instagram

A busy week, between dr. appointments, scheduling a tonsil surgery (yes, my son needs his tonsils removed :( ), but I managed to get a few pics. in! Stay tuned for my friends vintage/retro wedding pic. samplers...

I bought this frog at the best little antique barn in Paxton, MA called Nu-tiques! He sits near our brook looking out at Will's pool. I couldn't resist him!

Morning in my yard. We have perennial gardens galore! I love garden rooms.

Fabric I need to get to and create into pillows!!!
I love this pillow! I found it in Homegoods! One please, thanks!
