|One of the kitchen windows. The breadbox will not "live" in that particular spot; it's just handy there for now as it contains napkins for the kids to use for their cookies.|
Although snow is currently falling outside my window -- a crazy spring storm that is frosting the forsythia and other seasonal blooms -- there were some beautiful days last week, and we were able to open up our little camp for the season. Very exciting! Here are some photos from one of those days.
Here's another shot from the same window (but there are four windows in this tiny kitchen!). This one doesn't show the dilapidated outhouse, soon to be replaced. It also doesn't show what I saw when I first opened the windows last Thursday:
The old pump organ in the large room. You can see into the center room (those curtains -- which I assumed were gray until I soaked them multiple times in Oxi-Clean -- hide the sleeping nook) and on into the kitchen where you see my hubby standing. Love the slightly curved archway into the kitchen. The green area above the pine paneling marks the original roof line of the little logging camp that forms the first two rooms. We'll be keeping it green for the historical value.
|The coasters above were a Christmas gift from our two oldest granddaughters. They selected these designs with the camp in mind!|
|Out a screened window: Loon Lake is in the distance.|
Grandson Sam is just emerging from the woods between their place and ours. There's not much sweeter than seeing them come along one of the paths through the woods or riding up the dirt road on their bikes!
Hope you've enjoyed this look at our simple little cottage as we prepare for a spring and summer of work and play over there. Lord willing, a lot of exciting changes are coming.
