The Find: A Day at the Lake

It was four years ago on a day like today that I and a photo crew headed up to the Canadian border to photograph interior designer James "Ford" Huniford's boat house nestled on a private island called Fairyland, one of the Saint Lawrence River's Thousand Islands. Photographer Jim Franco captured this alluring image for The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details.

The last gasps of summer were still lingering and the hammock set up for visitors when we arrived in a small motor boat captained by Ford himself. And as the autumn leaves were starting to sprinkle the lawn that stretched to the lake, we spent the day taking in his captain's house -- one that today welcomes both boats and guests.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter
