A Year In Review!

I'm doing my year in review a little different. It all started when I purchased my cottage on wheels. I bought this old and ugly 60's camper with a mission to make it into a little cottage, plus I needed something else to decorate! LOL. I replaced old walls with beadboard and painted the walls white, I painted the armoire robins egg blue, my Mom made me white denim slipcovers for the cushions and new curtains, we also installed laminate floors, it was a group effort from my family and it turned out to be such a fun project! I emailed a pic of my camper to Jennifer and she loved it as much as me, it just so happened that she was going to be having her Summer Garden COTM in May 08 and to my surprise she thought my camper would be perfect for it. As we began talking she asked me if I had a blog , which I didn't and to be honest I didn't even know what they really were or that this whole other decorating world existed, so she gave me a few sites to look at and recommended I start my own! So without Jennifer I would have never found all of my wonderful blog friends, Thanks Jennifer! I have enjoyed you all so much and I want to wish all of you a happy new year! Make sure to scroll down through some of the pic's of my Cottage on Wheels and enjoy!! I love all of you and I am so glad to have found each and everyone of ya!! Please visit Cindy for her Year In Review Party!

This pic wasn't suppose to be on here! But I can't get it off, it was before I was done decorating!

My New Lampshades!

Just thought I would show you my new lampshades for my kitchen lights. I picked these up at Ikea, I thought they were so cute, the design on them is like hand sewn yarn, I don't know exactly how to describe it but they are really pretty. Of course I uploaded my pic's backwards again , I swear each time I think it uploads them the opposite way, LOL. I hope everyone has a good weekend!!(;

Our Bunkhouse

Well I don't think I have ever shown our bunkhouse or should I say our home for all my unwanted furniture, LOL. This is usually where alot of my furniture ends up when I don't want it in my house anymore. I really need to get in here and complete some unfinished projects, so for now I will just show some bits and pieces of our little bunkhouse. Oh and to my friend LeAnn, I AM on your side I just haven't posted about it yet, until now, LOL!!

A little nook near the kitchen. This is a corner cabinet that belonged to my Mom.

My Faux fireplace. Pssst...LeAnn did you notice the tree farm sign?? When I painted this room I wanted it to look like the Cottage Chic Store, I love the color of the living room they have on their site.
I will have to take some more pic's later. I hope you all enjoyed my very quick tour!

My Dream Cabin In The Mountains!

I was looking through my pic's from when I went to N.C. and forgot that I never showed you all these pic's. My Mom took me to this store in downtown Murphy where she lives , It's called Moosehollow, they actually have a two story cabin inside the store, it was like walking into a real life dollhouse, I just fell in love with this cabin! Look at the canoes on the roof, this is the actual cabin inside the store.
The family room, look at that fireplace, can't you just imagine curling up in front of this with a big cup of hot chocolate and watching the snow falling outside, ahhhh!

The cute little kitchen and to the right you can see the stairs that lead up to the bedroom.

I love the color on the walls and look at the cute curtains. I already bought paint and I'm going to paint my son Jake's room like this.

I have to have one of these stoves in my dream cabin!

The dining room table was hand painted with pinescones!

Another view from the family rm into the kitchen.

The bedroom~I could soooo sleep here! I asked them if I could move in.....Please!

Now this is my cabin I could buy at Home Depot(it's actually a two story shed~but who cares right?? It is about the size of the cabin in the store and it's around $16,000.00 built on your property you just have to finish the inside!! I thought it was so cute!! Well enough dreaming for now......

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year..........

I hope everyone enjoyed spending time with family and friends! I can't believe Thanksgiving is already over and now it's time for Christmas, where does the time go. I never want the holidays to be over, this time of year is just so magical, I enjoy every minute of it. This is a view from my couch, those candies on the table are so yummy and they remind me of my Nana's house when I was little, she always had them in her candy jar. I bought the little mouse in a jar and the elephant at Homegoods, the are Season's of Cannon Fall's, I love that company. Lulu(my bulldog) loved them also and thought I bought them for her, I had to put them up higher so she wouldn't eat them!
Update: Some people have left me messages about getting the ribbon candies and I just wanted to let you know I purchased the candies at CVS pharmacy.

This pink feather tree I have in my bedroom.

This is a little corner of my kitchen.

My sparkly sweet church on my coffee table

I bought this rose painting in NC for $20.00 thanks Bette(the artist). I also purchased the easel to display the painting on, it is also an antique.

My tree.......

I took this pic so you could see where I moved my snowmen, they are now on my buffet.

I loved the glow of the lights in this pic, I'm standing in my kitchen and looking into my dining room here. Well that's all for now, I hope you had fun on our little stroll, come back and visit again soon, wait you forgot your gift, I have these cute little bags of eggnog mix for you to take home and enjoy by the fire!!
