Just checking in....

It's Friday here at the Lakehouse, and it's cold. The sun is shining, so I'll take a blessing in whatever form it comes. The water is a dark blue, and quite rough...causing the Wood-ducks and Seagulls to bob up and down on the waves...looking almost comical.

Most of the other blogs I've visited are all prettied up for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Since we will be celebrating this weekend at one of my daughter's homes, I didn't put much out as far as decorations go. Just a few pumpkins and gourds.

We will also be celebrating Maddie's 11th birthday on Sunday. It's hard to believe she's 11 years old.
I'll share some pictures from the festivities next week.

It seems I'm showing the same pictures on my posts over and over again. I live such an exciting life..haha.
I guess I am happy with the things I have, so nothing changes a whole lot around here.
 Maybe once I start decorating for Christmas I will have some new pictures to share with you.

I realize there is a lack of color here at the lakehouse. I make up for that with a mixture of texture to keep it interesting.

Anyway....I'll be away for a few days.
I hope you have a great weekend, either relaxing at home, or visiting with family and friends.
Smooches to all!!!!


  1. Love your birdcages!

  2. Well, I love your SAME OLD THINGS, too! You can keep posting them just for me. COULD take a picture of your underwear- I'm pretty sure you change THAT everyday........r-r-r-right?

    Love to you and have fun at your daughter's house. We're gonna be busy here- oh..and happy, happy birthday to your little Maddie! xo Diana

  3. I never get tired of your photos so you just keep doing what you're doing. 11, huh? So that makes don't tell me. I'll figure it out in a bit.
    Have a fun few days off from blogging and just go out and do something crazy! I am heading for the doctor first thing in the morning and then who knows after that.
    Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in and get this stuff out of here!
    Blog or email when you get back!
    Hugs- Tete

  4. I am having one of those in between days...I have done a little cleaning, a little baking, but the eye of the storm won't hit until next week! I am having dinner here but I have been doing bits and pieces so it should go smooth.

    I love seeing pictures of your home...I'd love to see it in person! It always looks different to me!

    Have a wonderful time with your family and Happy Birthday to Maddie!


  5. The soft colors and interesting textures you have in your sweet cottage are so pretty, sis. :) You have a special way of bringing them all together and creating beautiful vignettes. ♥ Have a great time this weekend - and wishing Maddie a special day! :) Luv ya ~

  6. Hi Debbie,
    I love your wire and test tube thingy, it is so cool! Hope you have a terrific time visiting your family. I'm always happy to see your home, and I love all of the whites with just a pop of color here and there! Oh, and I keep meaning to say that I was thrilled when I noticed the Frenchy tag that I made on your header:)!!!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving from our house to yours!

  8. Enjoy your time with your family celebrations. Your photos, and your home, are lovely and I enjoy seeing the photos.

  9. Have a wonderful holiday, Debbie, and we'll see you when you get back!
    Hugs, Becky
