on lake time

When we got back from our family vacation it was family reunion time!
I have two cousins that live on a beautiful lake just northeast of where we live.  
This is where we have our family reunion.
Every year, when we go to our family reunion, my husband and I always leave there wanting to have a little get- away at this lake. 
Every year we take our dream a little further....
Last year we even looked at houses and properties on the lake.
My husband and I have talked a lot about making memories for our children and we talked and asked the question to ourselves…what are we waiting on?
So this year we made the plunge and purchased a little cottage at the lake!
So I have been spending as much time with the family at the lake as we can.
We have been having so much fun!
With working full time and spending every other waking moment when I am not working, at my real job, working on French Hen Farm sales, I had forgotten how to do “nothing” and just relax. 
So this summer I have really enjoyed doing just that....  Nothing. 
There is something about the minute we get on the lake, all the stress just seems to melt away.
So, I am telling you this because, of what I haven’t done- which is spending my free time getting ready for the Fall Sale. 
We have tried to figure out when and how we can have the Fall Sale.
First of all, I used a lot of my “junk” to furnish the cottage on the cheap.  
Which I will be sharing with you over the next few posts:)

 A lot of people have e-mailed me asking me when our sale is going to be....
We know so many of you look forward to the sale and we look forward to seeing all of you!
Over the last few years we have made so many wonderful friends through the sales and we don't want to let you down!

We have toyed around with perhaps having a French Hen Farm auction, or having a combined Fall/Holiday Sale a little later in the year...
My sisters have a pretty crazy schedule this Fall too… so as soon as we figure it out I will let you know!  
Hopefully we will decide our plans in the next week or so and let you know the details!
Thank you for your patience while I have taken a little R & R with the family!


  1. You sounds so at peace and relaxed. Take your time we can all wait. I vote for a Christmas sale. If you didn't want to do all the work have some others join in.
    We used to have a cottage at Buckeye Lake. It was so much fun and I miss it. I would love to get one at Indian Lake since that is where I grew up.
    Enjoy, can't wait to see pictures of the cottage. Ours was teeny tiny and I furnished it with all found objects.

  2. Good for you!! Let me know if you need any help :) Just finished up the Country Living Show and have items left in stock. Also Julie has plenty of pumpkins and gourds.
    Your Kenton friends
