Log Cabin Updates

My carpenter (Hobby Lobby)cut me a deal. He said he would build my fireplace for half the price! Also, this fabulous little country shop I found along a little winding road (Hobby Lobby) was having a 1/2 price sale so I had to go check it out!

I was only able to purchase one chair as that is all they had left. Both the fireplace and chair came natural so I had to paint them.

I then took a much needed break and made myself a cup of coffee in this lovely cup and saucer set I purchased at the little shop. On my way home I found this stray kitty so she came home with me! She’s purrfectly content in her little basket. I have yet to name her.

The shop was also having a 1/2 price sale in the kitchen area so I purchased myself this little cook stove and some graniteware pots and pans. Someday I hoped to find me a dry sink  and a little table and chairs for my kitchen.

It’s coming together slowly. I’ll keep you updated as I go along. I have been spending an occasional night there. I’ve just been sleeping on the floor by the fireplace. It’s really rather cozy!
