The snow here at the lake is melting, but the water is still stiff!!
The night time temps are still dropping down into the single digits, so there will be no kayaking for a bit, yet.
That means no gardening, yet.
Getting things done inside will keep me busy until it warms up enough to be outside for any length of time.
I found these shutters taken from an old plantation home in southern Florida, recently. They were painted white, but underneath they had the same blueish/green paint that my dining room table is wearing.
After distressing the shutters, I put them in the dining room doorway....LOVE!
These OLD shutters have been "hanging" around for a while.
I could never find just the right spot for them here at the cottage....until today.
I helped The Mister put them up over the kitchen sink, and viola!!! LOVE.
They were a nasty mustardy color when I purchased them. I painted them white, and distressed them. They are wearing their original vintage hardware, which adds to their uniqueness.
Open or closed, they add a little bit of a shabby/beach vibe to the kitchen...which warms this girl's (that lives in a romantic cottage at the lake) heart.
Since returning from Sanibel Island, I decided it was time to decorate for Spring/Easter.
Since my bunny pillow is on the iron crib, I moved the colored mercury eggs to the living room.
Giving the space a bit of a welcome to the change in seasons.
Adding vines with some tiny flowers also helped give the room a nod to Spring.....
and welcomes the Easter holiday.
The past few days have been beautiful here at the Lakehouse. Gorgeous blue skies, with no clouds, and light winds. The temps are still cold, but tolerable. The doves are cooing, and the Redwinged Blackbirds are singing out their mating calls. The setting sun is moving farther north in the western sky. Just a few patches of snow, and thinning ice brings the hope of the coming Spring.
Have a happy week!
