The Guest Room

 
Here's a little peak into the guest room... But it changes daily. I'm constantly changing and moving things about.

I changed the lamp and added the birds.  I need to get a longer bed skirt but haven't yet. Maybe I'll make one.

These vintage hound dogs are so cute to me. 

 
Thanks for stopping by...

Settling In

 
We are starting to settle into our new home. It has not been a bad adjustment. My husband has worked so hard!! He really did a great job!! He laid the wood floors. They are Cali Bamboo. This is the cottage  living room. 

We didn't buy any new furniture. We were out of funds by the end of the project. So we had to use what we already had. It's quite comfortable. We love spending time in here. 
 
 The master bedroom is a lot smaller than our last bedroom. We were really worried about it being to small but everything fit. It's just a little cozier. 
 
The chair I recovered still squeezed into the room.

 
 
The guest room is slowly coming along. I'm absolutely loving it! The bed is an old iron bed from the 1800's. I used Shabby Chic bedding and and old handmade quilt.
 
Pillows made from vintage chenille finish it off. My little lambie pie loves her new room. I will share more soon. 

Have a Blessed Day

Winona Cottage

 
Here is the new kitchen. Outfitted in pink appliances from Big Chill. I really love the appliances! The kitchen cabinets are Kraftmaid. 
 
With pink glass knobs of course.

 
We used an old screen door from a house that was to be torn down as the pantry door.
 
Retro beauty 
 
Praying Lady cookie jar.
 
Here's the toy version. The inspiration for the life size fridge. 
 
My friend Chrissy from @finallyafarmgirl on Instagram,  sent me this cute dish towel that she hand embroidered. It's perfect for the new kitchen. We should be moving in next week.!. Or so we think. The only thing I ever know for sure is nothing is for sure. Have a blessed week!

Pink Heaven

 
Last week was my birthday.... Another year gone. My husband's cousin took me to lunch and we stopped at a few thrift stores. I couldn't believe my luck. I entered pink dish heavenđź’• 

 
I found so many beautiful pink dishes. I'm totally in love with them. I'm guessing someone either passed away and they had a lot of pink or someone grew tired of them. But I got a whole set of these plates, salad plates and butter plates. No bowls but I will keep my eyes open.

 
I couldn't leave them behind! I was so happy. A little birthday blessing.

 
My daughter also went with me to the consignment shop on my birthday. We weren't as successful there. But it was fun.

 
In other news the house is in the last stages! I'm hoping by next week to be finished! 
 
My husband started on the door knob installation.

 
And half of the appliances were delivered! Yes I really bought pink appliances! I never grow tired of the color. While others are changing everything and getting rid of there pink I'm only loving it more.

I do hope you are all well. 
Blessings and Love,
