Lakeside Living...

Dining on the dock... red boat ready for a cruise around the lake...Sleeping on a waterbed...Bathing in nature...

If this is a little too much outdoor living for you... there is always Blondie's lovely lakeside cottage (commissioned painting)... perhaps she will invite you all in...

Or if she is not home... you can always run off and visit other OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY participants via Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer!

Oooops almost forgot... YOU are ALL invited to dinner and a movie at my place TOMORROW for Tablescape Thursday!!!

Photos via Martha Stewart and I can't remember... ooops... Tell me if you know!

Fifi! That painting of Janie's cottage is SO wonderful! Great job! I know she must be thrilled with it. :-)

Love that red boat. I think I'll have a midnight cruise around the lake and then turn in so I can visit everyone else at Outdoor Wednesday tomorrow.

I put a little something in my post for you! ;-)

Happy Outdoor Wednesday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Great painting of the cottage. She must love it.

What a great idea of sleeping on a waterbed out on the river. When we were kids our waterbed actually broke. This way the fall wouldn't be too hard. xoxo

This is very gorgeous outdoor living Fifi, xv.

Renae said...

Fifi.

I le adore ALL of these images. If I could be sure there were not bugs, I would so enjoy sleeping on that bed and ride over in that little red boat for breakfast on the dock. When do we meet? I'll have on my polka dot bikini (well I USED to have one!).
