The Likes of Which We've Never Seen!

Wednesday, August 16, 2017


Since purchasing our place in the mountains there have been many times I've felt like a little girl again, as time and time again I am filled with such wonder and excitement over the views, creeks, waterfalls, and nature surrounding us in our neck of the NC Smokey Mountains.

On this special day, we saw the likes of which we've never seen!

Mountain Fixer Upper Updates

Friday, August 11, 2017

We've been busy as bees so I wanted to share more updates on our mountain fixer upper.  The butterflies have been busy too.  They love the bee balm flowers that are still blooming.  I didn't think they would last so long but are still going strong.



Stuff for the Mountain Cabin Fixer Upper & Red Tole Lamp

Wednesday, August 9, 2017


Last December, after we closed on our place in the mountains, the search was on.  Knowing we had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living area, dining area, and a kitchen that would need to be furnished with everything from floor coverings to silverware...I got busy.  The last thing I wanted to do after the renovation is complete is to begin the search for furnishings, so I've been going to local antique shops, thrift stores and on FB yard sale sites, looking for everything from kitchen supplies to furniture that would go with the cabin feel I am going for and fit within my tiny budget.  I have learned that looking in advance ensures you find things you need for a much better price than having to make a quick purchase. 

Before we get to all the stuff, I want to show you the pink daylilies blooming just above the creek in the mountains.  I think they are beautiful with their bright yellow center and ruffly edges.
