Even though sister Judy is 5years younger than me we have great times together. She is an artist at decorating her home as well as her self! After Mother and Daddy passed away Judy and husband moved into the home rather than sell it. My husband had built for Mother a deluxe 10'X12' tool shed which was full of discarded flower pots, fencing and you get the idea   One day Judy had this vision of it becoming her little get away (but still close by) from handicap husband and grand kids.She knew exactly how she wanted to furnish it and we found a sofa that had to be moved in while the tool shed door was still on or it wouldn't fit in otherwise! We found an older handyman from church that would put in windows and door and electricity (that's and hilarious story for another time). She want big rose wallpaper which we ordered and put up. Everything we found to furnish it from thrift stores or family treasurers
It was a "Doll House" until about 2 or 3 years ago when she discovered  a SNAKE inside! That was it! Every once in a while she will get brave enough to open the door hurriedly  grab something else out and take to the house. Such a shame!

Little  precious Vignettes are still everywhere in this little "haunted cottage"

Reminders of it's "Glory Days"

Even has a Chandelier!   The next post will be a real treat! The inside of her house! A real "Vintage Delight"  By the way if you haven't stopped by my other blog: I hope you'll give it a visit too! An entirely different side of my personality!


  1. What a cute cottage and I'm sorry that a snake has ruined it for her as a get-a-way.

    I look forward to seeing pics of inside her house.


  2. Hi Marlynne,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. I love your other blog, but didn't know about this one, thank you for telling me about it! I was loving your sister's cottage getaway, right down to the pink flamingos at the door, until you said that five letter magic "S" word!! That would be me too, running in and grabbing something and running back out!! :-) I look forward to seeing her house, also.

  3. Thank you so much for visiting over at my place Marlynne.
    That´s a precious little cottage getaway your sister has - very pretty.

  4. Oh no!!! I wanted to move in until I heard about the snake!!! Oh I am afraid I would never be able to go in again either...Isn't that horrid and it is sooo adorable. I share that one HUGE fear with your sister. Thank you for the tour
