This metal Super Seahorse logo is off of a 1958 Johnson Outboard motor.. I just was drawn to them in an old thrift store. I didn't buy them... and weeks later I kept thinking of them... went back to the store..and there they were.. MINE now.. They did have some turquise paint on them, but I added more. This one looks great in the master bath where you can see the seahorse stained glass too. The other one is on a wreath I made.

There is always upkeep, and changes to the lake house.. I painted the door pink, and you can see all the pink,blue, yellow, green in the trim work and shutters.. We added a larger deck on the lower level, The front porch, we have a little spot to sit and have a meal, and you can see the round lounger with the mosquito netting, so I can lay out and read.. I like the netting just for the feel, and in case some random bug thinks it needs to find me.. The lower deck we have added another lounger, and a chiminea to make s'mores, and take away the fall chill... If your new to the blog, you will see a 10ft. long board surfboard that a freind brought back from Hawaii so many years ago, and I got it for $20, and did a mosaic on both sides, duck behind that and have a nice shower once you get out of the lake. Come sit on the porch with me, have a big glass of sweet tea, it is the "house wine" of the south, and lets watch a sunset !

Since I have a pink flamingo theme in my dining area, I decided a white tree with flamingo ornaments would be perfect, I found several flamingo ornaments, and even used some to make napkin rings. I had bought a Christmas Story leg lamp a few years ago, but i put my own spin on it, love it at Christmas time. I love the big flamingo, I placed some wings on it for Christmas, it is so vintage looking, and is meant to be outside, but I just love seeing it indoors.I recently had re- painted the table legs bright pink,with a pink metallic pearl glaze, and it really set off the mosaic table top I did several years ago. The table legs were given to me by a friend, and were used on a different table (you will see it in the dining area banquet from and old post, if you scroll way way back., we moved the dining area to a different area in the house, so we have a great view of the lake when we eat. We spend a lot of hours sitting in the comfy chairs watching the lake action, if we are not on the water or the porch !
I have been so bad not to have been blogging.. It is shameful that I abandoned it.. I must blame Face Book... it has sucked me in.. time to get back to blogging/ journaling .. So many projects have happened in the past 2 1/2 YEARS.. Oh MY.. and changes made at the Happy Shack, new projects.. so take a peek , scroll to your hearts content ! I must say, I am not a true blogger in the sense that I don't really promote myself, I just do it more like a journal with pictures..and that is fine with me.. Thanks for looking !

I found two metal Super Seahorse emblems off of a old Johnson boat motor.. I believe they are from the 1940's..very vintage.. I think they originally were silver..but had this blue paint on them. I had the perfect place for one.. in the bathroom I just did the mosaic on.. Real close to the seahorse mosaic. Perfect !
