Have you read David Sedaris' book, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim? I love this book, and specifically, the story, "The Ship Shape". When we began considering names for our lakehouse, I thought of this bitter-sweet story, where David and his mother overhear a woman talking about getting back to 'one' of her homes. Here's the quote:
“I’d love to stay awhile longer and explore, but my home, well, one of my homes is on the garden tour, so I’ve got to get back to Williamsburg.”
Once we figured out the name, I turned to Etsy to find a custom sign maker. I already had Bold Mfg in my long list of favorite shops, so I went right into customizing the sign with the help of Dave, the owner. A few weeks later, our new steel sign arrived. I think it's perfect. We plan to hang it from a tree in the spring. So that's that.
