Scenes from the Lakehouse

 This time of year, my hubby gets a little twitch….

He really starts to miss this….

And this….boating is his passion…he loves being on this boat…
We built a little cottage back in 2007….and it is a little piece of heaven on earth…

the place is decorated completely with found objects and re purposed materials…(except for our beds ;) Here is some drift wood found at the local state park…I used it to hang the curtains with too!

It is quiet and quaint…and so peaceful….
memories made with every visit…..
I can’t wait to share more with you….when the weather is warmer!!! I know it will be here before we know it!

99 bottles of wine on the wall, 99 bottles of wine…..

We (we meaning Bill and I) started for some odd reason collecting wine bottles. Not sure how it started, I am sure I was thinking I would do something with all of them. I love all the different labels and shapes. So, we grew quite a collection. It was time to do something with them. This is what I thought of….

We have a lake cottage (I say cottage, some say cabin…) It is secluded and in the woods and on a beautiful lake. It is a piece of heaven on earth I tell ya. Anywho, I had this thought for a thrifty but very quirky and fun garden border. How about we use all those wine bottles???? Huh hon, what do you think?? He is so sweet–because even if he thinks I am nuts….he goes right along with me—-and helps me too!
 Love that guy;)
So here is what we did…
Started with several bottles…all different heights and labels–love that!
We ( and by we I mean Bill) dug a trench about 2-3 inches deep. I wanted to bury the bottle about half way to ensure they would stay put.
He is so happy about his first appearance on the little blog that I can’t shut up about…
Such a honey ;)
yes honey….can you keep digging…I have many more bottles…love you ;)
So he kept diggin, and I kept securing the bottles in place. I kind of let it just happen—just trying to not place bottles that were the same right next to each other.
Imagine some pretty new mulch behind the bottles ;) and maybe some pretty landscaping!
We are off to drink more wine so that we can finish our border! (not him, he sticks to bourbon; he is from Kentucky so it is sort of the law here ;)
See the newest video link to do another fun project with left over wine bottles….
