Cottage: Butcher Block

It’s been a minute since my last cottage update. No cause for alarm, we haven’t been Up North since early January and we’re down to miscellaneous punch list items to complete.  We will be back for a quick weekend at the end of end of…

Cottage: Water Works

I am a little behind in posting but over the last week Christmas decorating, Christmas shopping and life in general took precedence. We have some major bathroom progress to share…we have water! (and lights and heat, but you already knew that) During week leading…

Cottage: “Moving Day”

One week ago we loaded up a uhaul with things for the cottage and headed North. Most importantly, THE COUCH made the trip.  I say that with emphasis because I fell in love with this couch the first time I saw it, I knew…

Cottage: Lights, cabinets, action! 

We passed our final electrical inspection!  Not that there were any doubts but it is still nice to have out of the way.Mom & Pop have been keeping things moving since our vacation.  The cabinets arrived about a week behind schedule so they didn’t make it…

Cottage: BIG THINGS

In my last post I made mention of BIG THINGS happening soon at the cottage, and that time has come!  We have been back in Indiana for the last couple weeks but in the meantime my parents have been absolutely rocking it.  Have I…

Cottage: Jitterbug

We are almost finished  with the exterior of the cottage and will soon be moving on to the interior.  This weekend I took some time to paint the front door.  This may seem illogical to some given everything yet to be done but I simply don’t…

Etsy Obsession 2.0

I previously posted HERE about my fondness (Obsession?) for Etsy and the wonderful things I have purchased on their website.  I am sure it comes as no surprise I have found more great stuff on Etsy since then.  Maybe I need become an Etsy advocate? or…
