Well that's more like it. This is an antique enamel table that I found at my favorite antique store and get this, it was almost free!!! Not quite but I used a coffee can of loose change that I had been collecting for a good while and finally decided to roll it up ;0) Good way to sneak a good antique in and not bust the budget huh? I will paint the rim blue since the rest of the decor is blue!
The pics were hard enough to get downloaded as it was but then they downloaded in reverse order. That's OK!
These are my new blue willow knobs that came from ebay. I looooove the way they look. Added the right amount of pizazz to the kitchen.
The cabinets look so good after they are painted. DH fussed and fussed because I wanted to paint them. Hasn't he learned by now, I mean really. After we (mostly me of course) were through painting he said that it was a really good idea!! Well of course it was honey it was my idea!!!!

Oh boy did this ever brighten up the kitchen. I can't wait to get the curtains made and many many more things done. I am contemplating painting over the wallpaper but I am not sure yet.
I am getting ready to start painting the bedroom suite this week and then maybe I will have made up my mind on what else to do with the kitchen!!!
I will post pics of the bedroom suite as soon as they are finished.
OMG this is so much fun. I just love decorating!!!!

Finally!! We have ownership of the dollhouse!!! Oh Happy Days!!
I have started work on it even before it is moved to the property as it is only a few miles away now.
We painted the cabinets yesterday. I have pics but for some reason I can't get those posted.
I will go and work on that now and maybe be back with those later.

Coming soon!!

Groundbreaking will begin soon on this new site dedicated to our Shabby Little Shack. This "Shack" or "Dollhouse" as it has been referred to in the past is actually our mobile home that we soon will have moved to our property near the lake. I decided that DH will freak out if he heard it called a dollhouse and not finish the work for me. The word "Shack" just oozes testosterone now doesn't it. I plan on the word being the only thing about the inside of the retreat that oozes testosterone. Actually he may just need to go ahead and build a garage and have boy toys and a bed in there for him!!!!!

We will use this as a weekend getaway, vacation spot and more than likely retire there (maybe in a loghome) if things go as planned. As you know the plans for the future can change at the drop of a hat.

The land has been cleared and readied for the mobile to be moved in, we even have 4 wheeler trails cut in but we have no 4 wheeler. We do however have a John Deere Gator but these trails are probably a little to steep for it to get me back up the hill. Note to self: add 4 wheeler to wish list of toys for Santa to bring me. I think that will be #47

Come back often for updates on our progress. I promise some pics soon!!

Take care,
