Before the Farm Chicks...








On the way to the Farm Chicks show, I stay overnight at Cindy's sleeping cabin on the lake in Nelson....I arrive before lunch and meet Cindy in town to check out her favorite haunts...thriftiness is a gene we share ...we must be related! After scoring some wonderful finds we were off to the lake and getting me settled in. Cindy has the most wonderful comforting touch to make my stay so memorable. Fresh flowers in a vintage ironstone vase that she found while thrifting with me when she was here last...my favorite snacks, fresh cream for morning coffee...chocolates on the pillow and a gift of a vintage jug...filled with small hand milled soaps...how in the world does she ever get anyone to leave?
This is the view of my retreat for the night..how wonderful is this..built by her and her man! Thank you my dear friend for making me feel so welcomed and loved!

It was just as you do for me when I come to visit you. It is the little things that mean so much my friend. Enjoyed taking care of you for a change. Sorry sisterhood for setting the standards, but I may have shot myself in the foot as this is what everyone is going to expect when visiting!!!

Oh, wow. That shot of the lake is the very definition of serenity.

And what a great hostess!
