Well, one night away, but it felt like days and days which was exactly what I needed! One of the awesome stores that I sell to here in Michigan, Found Gallery, click here to check them out, moved into an absolutely amazing new space and had a grand opening party featuring their artist makers, so of course I went! The owner Mary truly has a talent for gathering amazing items and merchandising them like a dream, plus her staff is wonderful! If you’re in the area drop in, you won’t be disappointed! I guess I was so busy chatting it up and checking things out I didn’t take interior shots! What, I know, sorry! I did however nab a pic of a couple artgoodies towels they carry in this awesome vintage bakery display rack! I had originally planned to nab a Priceline hotel outside of Ann Arbor on the cheap heading back towards home. BUT, for some reason the hotel prices were absurd that weekend, maybe someone was having a college football home game or something of the sort or maybe the prices in the area have increased far beyond what they used to be when I stayed there all the time. Anyway, my brother’s guest room in Lansing was booked for the weekend, it was farther than I hoped to drive after the opening, so I hopped on Airbnb and found myself a darling cottage for the night for cheaper than I could nab a dumb hotel. What! Yes please! It was on Portage Lake, about a 25 minute drive from Ann Arbor and just the thing I needed for a little mental break getaway. This little place couldn’t have seemed more like it was meant for me! Darling from the outside, great vintage pieces on the inside, I immediately felt right at home! Even though Sue the owner was out of town I felt like I met a kindred spirit just by being at her place. Many of my favorite things were abound, check out the pics, you’ll see! Pyrex in the kitchen, vintage Beauty Queen cabinets with new boomerang countertops, scallop shelf accents, great mid century furniture pieces, vintage glassware, I mean come on! And if you’d like to see more and have a lovely getaway book it here! Sue responded lightning fast, I’d definitely book again, and you could even sleep someone on the couch! Great for yourself, you and your darling, or you and your best pal! Do it! I think it would be great all seasons! I enjoyed the hazy fall morning and watched hundreds of migratory coots come in, an eagle fishing, saw 20 some odd swans in the distance, and a gorgeous heron, among other wildlife. See! ALL of my absolute favorite things! The perfect blend of a getaway for me!
