I wish each of you a wonderful holiday weekend! Enjoy these final days of summer - savor them.
Isn't it just incredible?! I have a small collection of folk art Adam & Eve in our master bedroom and think this is the crown jewel! La Donna Welter is an incredible artist in scherenschnitte and vintage photo-oil and hand grains her frames as well. Her blog is featured in the list to the left. You can see her website here:
Saturday starts my favorite week of the year - our week in the northwoods. I don't call it a vacation, as it feels more like going home. It's a week for the four of us to reconnect with nature and with each other. An eight hour drive northwest of Chicago, we stay at a resort nestled between National Forest and the Lac Court Oreilles reservation. We are without telephones, both landlines and access to cell phone towers. The lodge has one landline phone for emergencies. It is a half hour drive from town and the area is pretty remote. We've been going to the same resort for eight years and have stayed in the area for 11 years. I just can't wait!

I'm off to start packing! Blessings, Patti
