Cottage Recap: Living/Dining

For the first Cottage Recap we looked back at the exterior transformation. Now it’s time to move inside to the living/dining area.  One open space that will get the most use by far…including as a guest room.  I’m happy to report, according to our FIRST…

Cheers To 50 Years

This past weekend Mom & Dad celebrated 50 + years of marriage…how AMAZING IS THAT?!  Their anniversary was actually in January but they decided they would rather celebrate in the summer…because traveling in Northern Michigan in the middle of winter is less than ideal…

My Story

I can’t pinpoint the exact moment my interest in interior design & decor sparked; but I do know it started at an early age… In elementary school I remember walking through a house for sale with my parents and our realtor.  To this day…

Cottage: Bath Reveal

Between being on vacation and trying to get caught up after being on vacation…I have slacked on my updates, but I am here today to remedy that. We were able to use our shower for the first time!  To refresh your memory, we had…

Auction Finds

By now you probably know that Mark and I love going to auctions.  A couple of weekends ago we spent our Saturday morning at a local estate auction run by our favorite auctioneer.  At first, nothing stood out that we planned on bidding on…then…

Recently a friend commented on one of my IG posts that she struggles with knowing where to start when it comes to decorating and design…I get it.   The last few days I’ve been thinking about times I have struggled with inspiration and what my…

When you love decorating, but you are working within a budget, you hunt for deals…simple as that.  I actually enjoy the hunt, it makes me feel like I won something.  Now, it is worth saying, that when it comes to certain items “quality over…

Mom’s Green Thumb: Indoor Edition

Courtesy of my Mom, Jeanette (because I did not inherit her green thumb)… Last Spring Becky asked me to write a  post about outdoor plants and flowers, so I did. Now, she asked me to write about indoor plants, so I will do that as…

Be Our Guests

Last weekend we had the pleasure of hosting our dear friends from Michigan which has me thinking about what it means to me to be a good hostess or at least how I try to be.  First and foremost, I truly enjoy having company…

Cottage: Shelves

Earlier this week I mentioned I’d be back with another Cottage update so here it is! From the day we decided to purchase the cottage, I started collecting things to decorate.  I’m sure this doesn’t come as a surprise. Early on I had my heart…
