After lots of guests sent me emails with questions on how to improve their photos at Raspberry Cottage and @explorers.cottage.capebreton, I wrote the first log book entry in a series of practical weekly photo guides that I hope will be useful to guests. The first log entry is about capturing the blue hour, the time just after sunset. The link to the first log entry is in the Instagram bio. I took this photo from a building near Navy Pier in Chicago.

Tiny Beach Cottage (@tinybeachcottage)

Tiny Beach Cottage got a facelift! 🤩 As much as I love this house and its beautiful decorations, I’ve never been content with the layout of the living room. The first challenge is that the couch is gigantic and even though I’m open to getting a new one, I still haven’t found the perfect one, plus I really like this one. 🛋️ The walls are all too small to have the couch against it, so it has to be floating. Also, reserving the corner for plants and the Christmas tree is important to me. AND I want the couch to face the window so we can look outside. 🌱👀 So when we moved in over a year ago, we placed the furniture in the only way we thought was possible. Until YESTERDAY, I had an idea!💡 All we did was move the couch and entertainment center (and 2 pieces of artwork) and It worked! Everything fits BETTER than it did before. The tiny room feels bright and spacious and open. And there is even a spot for our future dog bed! Sometimes all it takes is moving some furniture around to feel like you live in a brand new house! 🏡 ❤️ .

As promised, I have written a log book entry about taking photos at Explorer's Cottage and @raspberry.cottage.capebreton after lots of guest requests! I hope the entire series is useful for guests to improve their photography so they may capture things as they see them. The first post in the photography series is about the blue hour, the time just after sunset. The blue hour still happens on overcast days without proper sunsets. ❄️ The link to the log entry post is in the main Instagram page bio. I took this photo from a plane during the blue hour while flying to Nain, Labrador, Canada. .

A little tea with blood oranges as a snack, one of my favorites. The kitchen is fully equipped at Explorer's Cottage and even has a large lobster pot, a Cusine Art blender, an ice cream maker, and a fondue pot.

Sometimes you need to get creative. A rousing game of #sockbowl will keep em busy. Drop the dock in the bowl, move to the next step.

What this little room lacks in size, it makes up for in charm. It is the smallest, sweetest and admittedly the chilliest room in the lodge. A stack of vintage wool blankets make it the coziest. #thebuckhornproject #vintage #cottagelife #airbnb #cozycorner #upnorth #linoleumdaydream
