Over this past weekend we went to Milford, Michigan to my dad’s house. He lives on a lake. How would you like to wake up and look out your window and see this every morning?

Or take a step off the deck and stare at this…

Or watch your husband and son enjoy the thrill of catching a fish at any moment in the day?

There is something about being on the lake that “does it for me.” I love being on a boat, tubing, skiing, and kneeboarding. I even love the slimy feel of lake yuck between my toes. It looks like my daughter doesn’t mind it either.

We managed to squeeze in a few yard sales and caught the Salvation Army’s big Labor Day sale. I have never in my life seen a Salvation Army so ginormous. I scored a vintage chair for $20 for my guest room that I can’t wait to get some paint and fabric on. Can you imagine it with a coat of Heirloom White paint and some new fabric?

Hopefully you won’t have to imagine much longer and I can get it done this week. I am so excited to transform this baby. And just to whet your appetite here is the fabric I plan on using.

While window shopping in downtown Milford I came across a sign that spoke to me. Here is your deep thought for the day…
Stay tuned tomorrow for a giveaway of my new favorite product!

    I'm glad you took that sign to heart when you re-repainted the chair. (while I think green would look nice, I think it also would make the room less fun and feminine)
