Lettered Cottage- Water Ski Sign



Hey y'all!


(My Southern hubby must be wearing off on me...I'm from Minnesota, and don't think I've ever type the word "ya'll" until today) :-)


I am so excited about the latest addition to the Living Room here at the Lettered Cottage.





The girls at White Flower Farmhouse sent me this great, old, hand-painted water ski yesterday and I absolutely LOVE it!


That Lori sure can wield a paintbrush- she did all the lettering by hand:

I love how the slate blue matches my shutters flawlessly....and the fresca blue-colored shadow on each letter is the perfect too...


It's even neat that the sign actually points South...which is what direction the beach is from our house. :-) (I know, I'm a nerd)

Slowly, but surely, this place is being accessorized, which makes Mr. LC very happy.

Because believe it or not, when he's not doing this...



...he is consumed with creating an inspiring place to live, just like me. (How did I get so lucky?)

And speaking of Mr. LC- it's his birthday today!



But unfortunately he won't be here today- so honey, if you're reading this- (and I know you are)

HAPPY 35th, I LOVE YOU!

As a Minnesota girl, it warms my heart to know that you are from my home state! I love your beachy style and it makes me wonder... is it odd for a girl like me to decorate in this style when I live in a landlocked state? We DO have awesome lakes... :)

This is a VERY cute idea. It fits perfectly above your door! :)

Cute! I'm so jealous of people that can paint lettering so straight by hand. I have to stencil everything.

I have been visiting your site for months now and I think this is the first time I've left a comment. I love getting my Lettered Cottage fix every day! I'm curious too: What band does Mr. L.C. play with? From the looks of the crowd pictures, the group is rockin'!

Happy, Happy Birthday Mr. LC.
The ski sign is great, Layla. How convenient that it even points the right way. ;) The whole LC looks so fantastic, and every little tweak you make continues to make it better.
Thank you for the continued inspiration, Layla.

Okay, a little googling to find out what band your husband plays in and I find out your Layla from one of my favorite Flyleaf songs EVER. Is Wikipedia right? OMG, I love it!
