Lake Ouachita

This could be the most special place on earth. For my family it is. We've spent 4 days here every year for over 20 years. In the beginning there were 2 G1s (That's Generation 1 - my mom and dad.) 10 G2s (That's Generation 2 - my siblings and their spouses and my husband and me.) and 12+ one on the way G3s (Those were the grandkids.) Now, we number 43 - The 13 grandkids have grown up, brought in new in-laws, and 7 wonderful G4s! We know that there will be more of those on the way!
So... if you need a cabin at Shangri-la Resort on the week we're there, sorry. We need them all!

I submitted this image to In the Moment to represent the word "tranquil."  I'm not sure how this can be, but through all the loud family fun, there's also an underlying sense of calmness and peacefulness.  It's even possible to find moments of silence.

To enjoy beautiful Etsy treasuries (collections of art pieces and vintage items) click Small Things with Great Love which celebrates the colors of the earth or Summertime... and the Living is Easy which celebrates the colors of the sky.  Then click a springtime collection called Rebirth The Everchanging Seasons.

And... one more thing! I found a wonderful Etsy shop dedicated to decorative and nostalgic lure boxes. Yes! There's even one for Lake Ouachita. Click the link to see. It's called Nostalgic Arkansas Lakes.


  1. Shangri-la indeed. The best silence is after an afternoon of fun with the family. When everyone is worn out from laughing. This is lovely and thanks for participating!

  2. What a lovely place to visit. And with all of your family surrounding you. Beautiful artwork inspired by this wonderful resort. Thank you for sharing.
