This Little Light of Mine...


I love those little lights glowing on our porch. They are just so friendly! Mark took this photo from Cabin G on October 10, 2008 (now you see why we don't extend our rental season). Some of the regulars at the cottages (both summer time guests and owners) bring little white lights to put around their porches. Not only does this provide soft lighting while enjoying the lake view at night, but it lends a bit of individuality to "your" cabin. Putting up unique lights also tells others a little about your personality.

Mark and Cindy (Cabin G) put up quilting star lights around their porch. Cindy is an avid quilter and can often be seen at Lakeview piecing quilt tops on her vintage green Singer Featherweight! I 'd like to find some motorcycle lights for Mike (Cabin E) and tie dyed t-shirt lights for Jim & Annie(L)! Hmmmm, more essential shopping for the cabins!
George spends his early morning and daylight hours down on the lake fishing, but in the evening, his trout lights cast a cheery glow on Cabin F. OK, most people who see the lights from the road think that the lights are chili pepper lights, but that's just because the trout are rainbows and have a pink side to them. We found these lights at the Forest Service camp ground check in office and gift shop. They had other lights, too. Below is George's "stringer" of plastic fish. It takes two strands of the novelty lights to go around the front porch.Porch lights (sold as patio lights) can be found in all different themes. The firefly and old lantern lights would be great on our porches. Target has many styles and they're not expensive. Porch lights are friendly and mark the cabin as "yours." They are like a welcome sign. They don't take much room, so pack them in next summer and let your light shine!

I LOVE my red quilted star lights. And they do make the cabin so welcoming. So shine a little light.
