Lake House

Do you heart Etsy as much as I do? In addition to being a seller, I am also a frequent buyer. There are so many wonderful artists and collectors out there making and finding unique things. To show my love for the Etsy community, every Friday I will update my Esty Finds and blog about my selections. I am headed to a friend's lake house this weekend and I thought it would be fun to find and feature items that I would like to take to the lake, have at the lake, or that simply had that "weekend at the lake house" feel.

If I had a lake house it would have a "woodland cottage" feel. Lots of neutrals and earthy colors (green, blue, brown). I would mix modern and vintage finds like the Perched Pillow and the boat seats. I would make frequent rowboat trips to the middle of the lake where I'd spend lazy afternoons sketching. Of course I would pack a picnic with my vintage picnic set. While on the lake I might even write a few notes home using my personalized trout note cards, because my lake house would not have internet access. From time to time I'd make trips in to town for groceries and antiquing with my Stockholm purse in hand. We'd dine alfresco almost every night by the light of lanterns and the moon. When not at the lake I might slip on my woodland tee or sprig earrings (which I think look like water bugs) to remind me of my favorite weekend retreat.
