So take a peep into my life and I hope you feel a little love and joy as I do every time I'm there.
The cabin is located just off the lake in a very small Northwest Indiana town. It was built in the 50's from a kit. The people are incredible and we have made many friends and have more fun than people our age should have.
It's small, I guess about 900 sq feet. But when we are there it's plenty big enough for the man and I. I feel like it gives me a big hug...........Many times when we wake up in the morning I sing a little song. Something like I'm waking up in a tree house in my fluffy bed. If you ever heard me sing you would understand the humor in that statement.
One thing you probably don't know about me is I am very creative. Almost all of the decorating was thrifted and
a lot was restyled. I'll add captions so you see some of the things I made. I had so much fun and went to Good Will so much they now all know me!
I really don't think there is much I'd redo. It's a good feeling to complete something with no regrets. This summer we are planning on adding either a deck on the back or if the cabin God's are with me (Have to be a whole lot of praying going on) putting on a larger front porch. Either way I'll just do a little dance and be happy.
I also added a photo of me in my most casual of outfits. That had me thinking. What do you wear when we aren't looking??????????????
If you have time try to stop by my Trending Through The Decades: Brights. It's fun, bright and jeez just do it!
Photos are in random order so have fun and peep into my life.
Linking up to Visible Monday
Coat hook bought on Tybee Island so the Man has a place to hang his hat and not lose it. Vintage picnic basket for plastic bags
Spare room. This one is blurry not sure why. The mirror was just a plain wooden mirror. I glued shells around it. You can't see the details on the curtains but they are made from an old crocheted bed spread from my Grandmother.
Bathroom curtain made from vintage hankies
Antique wood burner. Has kept us toasty on many of nights!
Antique lamp with hand covered shade.
Crazy metal flowers and a peek at the cool candle holders made out of spindles
My wine tree!
New shelf just added last weekend. Made from old wood skies
My sad front porch. Still a favorite place to hang out. On the coffee table is a vintage 80's Spiegel catalog
More porch pics. The couch has to be the original futon!
The kitchen. The curtain is made from a vintage tablecloth draped with twine. The trash can is a vintage ash bucket. The mess is all mine!!
The living room which is actually part of the kitchen. Chandelier gussied up by me. Vintage rocker, Hoosier cabinet and trunk all gifted. I didn't think about it at the time but now looking at the picture I notice the quilt on the back of the love seat. I mad that quilt quite a long time ago for our middle son. They are expecting their first baby in September. If it's a boy this will be one of my gifts!
Just my crazy side welcoming you to the cabin
Our room and the start of the wall!!!!!!!!!! I really don't know what I'm trying to do other than to add color and fun! The Man would surely say that isn't his idea of fun in the bedroom!!!!!
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
