Cottage Finds

The sun came out, (as well as lots of flies) so I decided to take some shots of the treasures that have been both hiding and in plain sight here on Drag Lake.

clipboard
The clipboard. It's now mine, I asked for it as a prize for all my spring cleaning hard work. I think it's going to look so cute hanging on the wall of my new office. I can clip on the day's to do list as well as keep important papers at my fingertips.


readersdigest
The Reader's Digest magazines (circa 1960) are no secret. I think I've read every one of them at some point during my summer stays. They're pretty hilarious.


readersdigestprints
Some prints from the hard cover Reader's Digest Condensed books, also from the 60's.


boxes
Three boxes which I have made my dad swear up and down he will never throw out. He uses them to store wood next to the fireplace. I've tried many times to bring one home with me, but apparently besides being beautiful they are also useful.


book
A pocket glossary of building terms, good to have around.


magazines
My dad's Popular Science and Hot Rod magazines. Cars were so much cooler back then. These must be worth something - not that we'd ever sell them!

That's all for now. Time to head outside to enjoy the sun :)

Happy Tuesday!

  1. Love the boxes as well! One day.. it shall be yours. ; ) I wouldn't mind reading the Reader's Digests too. Might look good in shadow boxes too as decoration. Nice finds!

  3. These must be a lot of fun to read through or simply have around over the years.. I like that you guys have them still kicking around, my mother would have thrown them away years ago.

    Hope everything is great with you.. are you excited to move to Montreal?
