Well I will start with the new shop coming this Spring. Our old shop worked perfect but our 20 year old and his girlfriend were having a baby and I wanted things to be a bit easier for them starting out so we turned the shop into a 2 bedroom apartment. It turned out so cute - using alot of the items coming from our local Habitat for Humanity restore shop.
So with not having that shop I had to come up with a second option. That is when I found it scrolling thru Craigslist I saw a guy selling wide plank flooring, hmmm.... and on another post old windows. We called him asked what he was doing with the rest of the building and he said bulldozing it. Well now we cant have that can we? So I asked if we buy the windows and floor can we also buy the cabin? So at the end of Sept the guys went up and dismanteled it. Now from the pics it doesnt look like much but I have BIG plans. It will be placed in the back yard next to the pond, putting on a front porch and having a rusted metal roof! And nope not painting it, going to leave it all chippy. So want to see the beauty in its setting prior to us taking it down? Ok feast your eyes!
Well I guess not-I am driving thru the mountains of PA heading out to a furniture show and my photos will not upload. Hows that for a teaser.
But in other exciing news we have 2 grand babis now! Our grandson was born Aug 13 and our Granddaughter was just born Jan 6. Best things is they both live close - one in the old shop in the back yard and the other on the property right behind ours! Love it. Again pics to follow. Of course I have plenty.
Well since I am teasing yo with stories and no pics I will end. Oh and will show you the great antique finds from this summers adventures of autioning,

Forgot to post a picture of beautiful kitty cat -Liberty. She is enjoying a cat nap in the seldom used guest room. Oh the life of our cats ....
For you non cat people ... They really do sleep 23 hours a day.
First of all make sure you check in on me more often. I finally decided to get a ipad so I could blog more. I felt that I didn't blog much because of all the steps needed to get things done on the desktop computer. But now I can take the pictures and blog all at once so watch out you will be hearing from me a lot more.
This was the original family room we built in 2003. Then in 2012 we added the logs to make it feel like a old log cabin. The tv was in the big green cabinet.
Of course we never leave anything alone for long we added a fireplace with a big tv above. And what a difference this has made in the room. This is where the green tv cabinet was in the above picture. This room always felt cold with all the windows - not any longer ! It is a cozy warm place to enjoy a movie. The little drawers are faux and the entire row lifts up exposing the cable box, surround sound, and Xbox. The doors open to expose a 65" TV. But the greatest deal of all is that we found this 42" gas fireplace at our local habitat for humanity restore for only $225.
Here are a few photos of some little groupings I have thru out the house

These beautiful star gazers are the bright spot in this horribly cold winter. So pretty....
And then below is our high temperature of -11 notice the windchill high of -39 and low of -49!! It has been so cold here this winter that I think we are nuts for living in these conditions. Lol. Everyone keeps saying "but the summers are so nice". We'll yes they are but there is only 3 months of summer and then there's Mosquitos... I'm hoping not to freeze before I can enjoy those few months of summer!
