Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Come On In

The entry kind of sets the mood for your home. We're still working on our entry. In fact we still have work to do on every single room in the house.
This is the inside of our front door, notice the unpainted trim. The little black furry thing is our sweet dog Betsy.

This is the chandelier that I got at the thrift store for $5.00. Love that thrift store...

This is a little cabinet I got at a yard sale, already painted. That was a gold mirror that I painted white. Other little nest and bird things from here and there.

This is a long blank wall that needs to make some kind of statement. I'm thinking beadboard, or tongue and groove painted something, or wallpaper, or....Well, I'll figure out some kind of project for the mister.

What thrift store do you go to? It CAN'T be DI...I'm hoping there are more options out there with better stuff. ;)
