Leland Gal is a home decor brand founded by the talented Maggie Revel Mielczarek. A former art teacher and self taught graphic designer her detailed and darling drawings are the basis for every single product they carry. From ditty bags to wallpaper, and everything in between, her designs have truly taken over and the brand is growing daily. You can shop with Leland Gal both online and at their retail location in Leland, Michigan in historic Fishtown which is open seasonally from May to October.
Leland is located along the shore of Lake Michigan. Picture quaint weathered fishing shanties in this darling little fishing village. Maggie shared with me that originally the land was due to be sold as a lot commercially in 2004 when a group of dedicated residents banded together to create the Fishtown Preservation Society in an attempt to maintain the small working fishing community as one of the last on the Great Lakes. What stands now is the original fishing shanties and weathered smokehouses that have existed for many years. Summering in the quaint village is her idea of the perfect summer ... quiet, relaxed and peaceful.
Her love for the water and her life here in Michigan is clearly reflected in her designs. The presence of the birch trees, the variety of boats, the oars, the bicycles and the iconic Jeeps. I can't get enough. She is clearly selling a lifestyle and I am signing up to buy it all.
Don't you love it all and feel so relaxed just seeing her amazing work? Her designs evoke a feeling of never ending summer and living near the water. When it was time to add some pillows to our porch her pillows were exactly the thing I was looking for and we love the addition they have made.
In addition to the pillows on my porch I own a few of Maggie's darling ditty bags. They are perfect for just about anything ... and are a darling addition to date night.
I have teamed up with Leland Gal to gift one lucky reader a Ditty Bag of their very own!!
Good luck ... you will love your new bag!!
Happy Monday lovies ... the weather has me excited about cocktails on the porch this evening!!
