A lovely, productive weekend

We spent the weekend at a lovely cabin in the mountains at Mentone, AL. My father-in-law bought a house with property up there and built a few cabins and some "bunkhouse" rooms off the main house. One cabin looks like a barn, one looks like a church, and two are just cabins.



The first two pictures are in the main room of the main house. My darling daughter is sleeping on the sofa because there are no televisions in the "bunkhouse" rooms. There is a massive fireplace just out of view on the left of the first pic. The blanket on the floor is for our dog.














The third pic is the view from the bed I woke up in, in one of the "bunkhouse" rooms. You see why I keep putting "bunkhouse" in quotation marks. The rooms are furnished in a not-so -rustic style. The word bunkhouse doesn't really seem to fit.




Last is a pic of the true nature of our visit. We were loading up the old kitchen cabinets that were being torn out for the remodel of the main house kitchen. I am so looking forward to having cabinetry in my kitchen.
To be continued.........

Were the cabinets as cute as I remembered?

Oh wow -- I used to go to camp in Mentone. It's beautiful up there. What a wonderful place to retreat to a cabin.

Coming home with party favors--always a good thing! ;) Nice way to recycle.

Yoohoo! Anyone home? Do you have cabinetry yet in your kitchen?

Oh,sorry,I forgot to answer. No, cabinetry is a project on the "list",but not neccesarily imminent. A gal can dream can't she?
