We did it!!

We managed to get the a frame looking festive for the fourth!!
We even managed to get our boat in the water.
Despite having the floors covered with paper until Chris can rent a sander,  it's looking pretty cute inside.
We've been hanging things on walls.
As you can imagine, I'm having fun playing house with my estate sale finds.
We are loving lake life.  
I hope you had a wonderful fourth. 
Ours went down as one of the best EVER!!!
XOXO

Oh, how fun! I used to love seeing lake houses in Mary Engelbreits magazine and I kept going "Cute! Cute! Cute!" looking at your fun vintage decor. You are so lucky! You'll be able to play with this doll house for years! =D

Am sure it will be the first of many magical fourths at the cottage. Fun seeing it all come together and makes estate sale adventures all the more fun with a new thing to search for.

You two are the most driven decorators on the planet! You aren't showing the pictures of the elves (like the ones who helped the Shoemaker) that helped do all that work while you went to sleep! Absolutely the best home on parade that I have ever seen!

So charming and fun . . . exciting times ahead!
One of my best high school friends parents had a cabin in northern Minnesota. We would have the best times going up there for a week, two, or more in the summer. My friend inherited the cabin and three years ago we had a three person reunion back at the cabin! So cool . . .

Looks like a perfect place to spend the 4th! Love your lawn chairs. And super love that Chippewa Lake sign! I used to go there when I was a kid. Now it's one of those scary abandoned amusement parks. Have a blast this week.

OH boy, you're the only person I know who could move in and decorate for a holiday all within a couple days! It looks adorable with all the patriotic décor outside, and is already looking super-cute inside as well!
