At My Lake Cottage

Or should I title this post, "Where the heck has Chris been"! I have been at our lake cottage that my husband and I bought last fall. I will eventually write a post with more pictures and before and afters but for now I am enjoying every drop of sunlight of every day which you have to do in NH since summers are short but glorious. 

My grandsons have been up a lot and are quite the swimmers and beginner water skiers. Yes a 3 and 5 year old can water ski.

I brought a sewing machine with me and have only used it once so my 6 Swoon blocks that I previously completed sit lonely on my design wall in my sewing room waiting for summer's end and me getting back to sewing the last three.

So until then I will enjoy the sunrise from my front porch each day which is why we named the cottage Sunny Side Up.
Talk to you soon.


  1. It is such a beautiful spot and you all are using it well! Enjoy every ounce of sunshine you can grab, you know that the cold New England winter will land you back in your sewing room. Until then, have a blast. We're waiting for your neighbor to sell his place to us and we'll have our first family compound. :) Just what you need, family as neighbors.

  2. I cant beleive that tiny tot of a lad can waterski. What a star. Enjoy the summer - we will all be tucked up by the fireside very soon

  3. A big shout out to Chris's followers----TODAY IS HER BIRTHDAY!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR SISTER!!! She's at the lake, celebrating her special day, loving life.

    She's just so young at heart for someone her age! LOL.

  4. What gorgeous photos of your lake cottage life. How nice to be able to enjoy your family and make some memories. The swoon blocks can wait!

  5. Girlfriend u keep right on enjoying yourself make every moment count.

  6. Sounds like you are having a fabulous summer and enjoying every minute of it. Good for you!! How is your health?? Big Hugs!!

  7. It looks gorgeous at your lake house! And a perfect way to spend the summer - relaxing with family! Thanks for sharing the pics!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
