Saturday at the cottage

Summer is slowly making it's way to Ottawa and I plan on taking advantage of the decent weather every chance I get. And I did just that yesterday by spending the day at my sister's cottage in Quebec. It was a bit chilly and very windy but luckily we have options when the weather isn't completely cooperating. The cottage is right on the water which is ideal on hot days, but for days like yesterday when it was only a high of 17 and windy, we spent the day on their property across the road where there was no wind and therefore much warmer. It was a fantastic and much needed break from everyday life and computers so I brought a stack of shelter magazines I have been wanting to read but never found the time and got some sun and relaxed. I took some photos (both iPhone and with my little Fuji X10) that I thought I'd share since I didn't have time to do anything else for today's post. Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend so far!

Those photographs are stunning! I just loved looking at each one- pretty enough to hang those all up on a wall :) Thanks for your beautiful post!

I'm totally in love with this cottage, it just looks so cosy.

I thought that especially the wooden chair nearby the window looked very inviting and cosy, with its beautiful cushion and the white sheepskin. For the smaller wallets and for those who have no time to go on the lookout for interesting thrifted pieces i found that there is a similar chair (unfortunately with less charme and character) on the ikea website (Germany). http://www.ikea.com/de/de/catalog/products/50201685/
