Antiques --- Lakeside Cabin Style

Just got back from
our annual vacation in the
Northwoods of Wisconsin.

These shots were taken 
on one of the
 gorgeous sunny days
that we were blessed 
to be there.

 And though taking it easy
and relaxing,
riding on the boat,
or catching up my reading,
is what we are there for mostly...
there is always time
to hit a few shops 
in the area. 

Found a new spot 
and could
not wait 
to share it with you.


This is The Simple Life
and it is located 
in Land o' Lakes, WI
which is the last town in Wisconsin
before you hit the border 
of Michigan's UP.

Oh my goodness,
if you have a cabin 
or have ever wanted
 a cabin, you would
just go crazy in this shop!

I met George, one of the two owners,
and he could not have been
more friendly and informative 
in telling us
how he and his wife
share a passion to scour
the world to find unique
and one-of-a-kind cabin decor pieces.

Their buying trips take them
coast to coast and on
 annual buying trips to Bavaria and Austria.
They have pieces you will not see 
anywhere else.

Take a look.


Behind the main building
there is a barn and a sale tent too.
So many options!
So worth a visit, or two or three.

So if you are in the
market for cabin decor 
be sure to stop by
The Simple Life
in Land o' Lakes, Wisconsin.

I saw a few things I have, and a few things I want for our cabin. Looks a little far from our place, but maybe not:-) Thanks for sharing a little slice of our WI heaven.

These posts about your Up North vacation, have made me hungry for my own relaxing get away. Your pictures are quite an advertisement for the area.
And throw in a little 'shopping' and you've got a GREAT VACA. :)
