A fun weekend, and an old door.

It's been a busy, busy last few days here at the Lakehouse.
The weather has been perfect for spending time outside.
The kids have been tubing, swimming, fishing, and playing on the beach.
We've been eating out by the fire every day.
We've had company since Thursday.
Our yard looks like a mini-campground.

Today I took a short break and went up to my favorite shop to pick up my door that the owner has been holding for me.
It has the original hardware on the other side, but I like the wood slats on this side.
The patina is a gorgeous aqua.
I love the formal wall sconce on the old rustic door.

The wine rack was moved under the window with the old sash sitting in it.
The whole arrangement makes a nice setting with it's mix of rustic and chic.

The blend of primitives and lace just makes my heart smile.
Throw in a French chair or two, and I'm in Heaven!
Time to feed the hungry crowd!!
I hope you are having a fun weekend!
I'm joining Kerryanne over at Shabby Art Boutique for Shabbilicious Friday. You will find lots of great inspiration there!!
I'm also joining Ivy and Elephants for the Wednesday link party What's It Wednesday? Be sure to go over and see what's going on.


  1. Debbie---this is absolutely gorgeous and SO you! I want one, too. But where I would put it...ha!!

    Love that you are having a great 'family friendly" summer! :)

  2. That is a very unique addition to your collection but certainly blends in with the old lace and decor you already have. Glad you are enjoying company. Spending time at the lake sounds wonderful.

  3. Ohhhhh Debbie love the new door. That is such a keeper! You got a great one.
    Love that it has the original hardware too. Have a great Sunday. Enjoy your company.

  4. If anyone told me that putting primitives and lace together would look nice, I would say no way. That is until I started reading your blog. Now I am in love with how you put them together. Now I say, Yes they do look good together.

  5. Debbie, I love the new door. You are so right that sconce is so cute on the rustic door. Sounds like some fun days at the lakehouse. Enjoy your loved ones. Blessings my friend, love, Susie

  6. Wow Debbie, that door is so gorgeous!!! I'm in love with aqua and have been adding more and more of it:) It looks perfect in the spot you've chosen for it, love your little wine rack too! I'm glad you're enjoying your summer days, sounds lovely to have dinner by the fire. We've had non-stop rain all weekend long so we haven't done a whole lot but it's nice:)

  7. Hi Debbie, the door is simply gorgeous and so perfect for you! Love it and the look of rustic, primitive and lace are so charming together. You really bring it all together beautifully!
    Blessings for a special Sunday and enjoy your company.

  8. The door is perfect, Debbie! I love the sconce as a nice contrast, and I am drooling over your bottle drying rack and wine rack. A great blend of rustic-shabby chic-French-Bo-ho:)!! So glad you are enjoying your family visits this summer!

  9. Sounds like you are making the most of summer right now. That door is really unique. I like the contrast between rustic and chic (as you said) too.

  10. Hey There...
    I love your style and the country,and french and the blend is so lovely. How fun to have the summer fun and the family and friends! This has been a work summer with painting and building new porches. I am sending you a hug!
