My Summer Place................

MY LITTLE SUMMER PLACE




When I was a wee little one , my Mother and Father had a cabin at Silver Lake in Michigan I some times have to stop and thank God that I have been so blessed to live near the water. My first husband and I had a sail boat and all most lived on the water. When Charlie and I married 17 years ago we knew that when we retired we would want a place near the water. We now have our small place on Lake Erie and the condo with a pond in the back yard. I have always been so happy to be near the water, to see the sun set on warm evenings is a dream come true for me. I thought I would share just a few pictures of my little corner of the world with you. As you can see by the picture that Winston also enjoys the little summer place with us. I also have a small pond that Charlie made at the lake. In this picture you can see the gold fish but they are there somewhere. I will now sit a while and enjoy that refreshing glass of ice tea with a good book and enjoy my summer place.

Oh I just love this room! Those colors are great together. Love your little garden with the beach sign and the water garden too. I love the shores of Lake Erie. You're so blessed to have a place there in the summer. Actually, friends and I were going to go to Put-in-Bay today but postponed our plans because rain was predicted. It rained here, pouring almost torrentially, for about an hour, but I don't know if it was like that on the island.

I love your cottage and your precious dog is adorable. Of course if you're like us you consider them one of the family and not really a dog. We have a 2 and a half year old Cairn terrier named Maggie Mae, who kind of rules the roost. Enjoy that glass of tea, and have a wonderful day, Jean

This is truly so pretty! And your precious doggie suits the room to a *T*!

Your grandchildren are adorable. I know you love being with them!

Your dog and cottage are beautiful, I love the bold red colors. One of my drawbacks is that I'm NOT bold..I'm very plain.
