Lantern Globes for the Mercantile

Another new item for the Mercantile are my Handmade Lantern Globes. These are a spin on a snow globe, without the snow or glitter on the inside. They celebrate the beauty of nature that surrounds Tee Lake Resort. 

Each Lantern has a handmade scene created for the inside of the globe. Currently I have two different scenes, one of a Bear on a rock, and one of a Deer in the woods. Once the inside scene is created then the lantern is put together. 

The great thing about these globes are that each one can be custom made. Currently these items have a sign on the inside of the globe that points your way to Tee Lake. However the sign could have your last name or any other special message you want on it. If you want a custom one please send me an email. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

Winter Jan 20, 2013

Here are some photos of the beautiful winter's day we are having at Tee Lake Resort on Jan 20, 2013. We received about an inch of snow over the night, which created a fresh clean white blanket for the sun  to reflect off of. The blue skies with the white clouds and the sun reflecting off the white snow looks amazing. People always ask us how can you live in Michigan after living in sunny Florida? We like to look at the positives of where we are, and on a day like today it's easy to see the positives. You don't get to see beauty likes this everywhere. Life is what you make of it no matter where you are, so get out and live your life.

New Coasters at the Mercantile

We are busy working on new designs and new merchandise for the 2013 season! Here is a look at one of the new items we will have this year, Tee Lake Coasters. Each tile is 4in by 4in, and have felt backing. The cost for the set is $10. We currently have 2 styles to offer you.

 The first is our "Greetings from Tee Lake" postcard art that Andy designed last year. We both love those vintage postcard from the 40's and 50's, and Andy did a great job creating that look and feel on our postcard. The great thing about this coaster set, is it also is great artwork for your coffee table. Each tile has a part of the image on it and when all four are placed together it forms the complete piece of art.

The second set of coasters has our "Cabin Icons" art on it. This artwork that Andy designed is also available on a four pack of note cards and a four pack of magnets. It's not only a great gift for our Tee Lake Family but for those who love the "Up North" feel. Again it also make great artwork for your coffee table.

Continue to watch for new items in the near future. We are excited for all the new offerings we will have this year. We are also working on a Etsy store were all our items can be purchased.

Have a great day!!!
