Time to confess

You can imagine that I make a lot of beds and with that comes a like or dislike for the comforters we use. My favorite, of course, would be linen duvet covers like I use here at home but my linen service does not offer these.  Back to my comforters, there is one style in particular that I have had since the dinosaurs roamed the earth – at least 10 years.  It’s a Martha Stewart quilt. I have 6 of them.  They have been washed so many times that the fabric is wearing thin and has broken and torn all over the place, on all of them. If I were to fix the tears, I would only create new ones, so I don’t even try. Yet I cannot help myself, I put the quilts on the beds anyway.  Usually they go on the beds of guests that I know very well and to whom I can explain why that comforter is on their bed

Because it has this perfect weight
it feels really comfy!

So, should you find this comforter in your cottage and on your bed,  just go with it,  you could not be more comfortable sleeping under that thing.

See, it’s this sea-foam green with white stylized flowers. It goes perfectly with the curtains and the pictures on the wall
without being matchy-matchy…
Good night!


So it’s here


20th Anniversary Celebrations
(I think they’re celebrating)

It started on Wednesday and for some reason I have not seen the participants yet.

I am not sure what’s going on there, maybe they didn’t appreciate the decorations this year?

You remember I had this heap of after dinner mints.

I made nice piles of them on the pillows


and the rest I stuffed into their coffeemakers, hehehe

See, I even stuffed the filter compartment.

What?  No way – I am not going down there to find out what they thought about that.

If you want to know, you go and ask

New guests that fit like a glove

Funny how some guests just come in and are part of it all – immediately.

Yesterday Douglas David – painter, arrived for his 3 night stay and he was right at home.  We had drinks on the front porch the day he arrived and today we had drinks in his backyard.   We all needed a drink, I guess 8)

He spends quite a bit of time in this area so I am sure we will see him again.   Some of his works can be seen at Betsie Bay Furniture on Main Street in Frankfort and I think some of his paintings are at a gallery in Glen Arbor and some are at MacBeth in Onekama.  He has a calendar of events on his website so check it out!

Now don’t everybody go on thinking that all we do here is drink, I know it’s easy to believe with all of my cocktail posts
