A new social media addiction and cottage-warming present!

I'm blaming my daughter and Laurie (Magpie Ethel), but in case you're interested, I'm now on Instagram here. I still don't have internet at the cottage, but I do have fabulous cell phone coverage. Instagram is a great way to still get my social media/eye candy fix on the weekends using my smartphone.
When we removed the kitchen cupboards above the range at the a-frame, I knew that I'd need some kind of furniture to make up for lost storage.
We happened to have a small hutch that I was using in our master bathroom to store linens and it now resides at the cottage.  
When Laurie (Magpie Ethel) shared her vintage shelf edging paper on this post, I was completely honored that she sent me the apple blossom paper as a cottage-warming gift. 
Doesn't it look amazing in my hutch?
It adds the perfect vintage touch.  Thank you, Laurie.
I love having something special from you at our lake house.

You have no idea how excited I am that you are on Instagram!!! It's my favorite addiction (even over Fudgsciles). Laurie's shelf edging looks right at home in the cottage.

When I look around my home it's so much fun to spot the Magpie Ethel items...she has sure become a part of our lives, hasn't she? I am really enjoying the progress reports on the A-frame. I envy you the joy of making it your own! =D

I'm actually out of town, but thought I'd take a quick peek at how things are shaping up for you. Everything's looking so cute! The shelf paper is perfect, and how nice to have floors! Also love that photo of your husband on the dock- you should frame it and hang it up!

It looks perfect! And the added touch of the vintage picnic basket brings an extra cottage feel . . .

I just love your new lake cottage! Chris and yourself are doing an amazing job redoing everything and you are such a great decorator!
I also have several pieces of Magpie Ethel in my home too! I wonder how many bloggers own a Magpie Pie original??
Have a great weekend at the lake!
Hugs,
Lynn

Glad to have a little tidbit in your house that reminds you of me! The shelf edging looks perfect in the cottage.

p.s. I am glad you also blamed Emma for the IG addiction.

Its wonderful. You and your family are going to make so many lovely memories in that little cottage. I like your thrift finds and those colorful chairs. I have been wanting a couple for my porch. Maybe when they are marked down I will purchase them. Blessings friend
