Home sweet home


It's such a beautiful day out today. I've been trying to clean up some in the yard to get ready for planting and things. I opened the windows up in the cabin to let some fresh air in, so I took a picture while I was there. Unfurnished, we've not moved in yet but will very soon. I love my windows, I found them at an antique mall. I had them hinge them on the side with a wooden turn knob on one side so they will swing open. The door you see is actually the front door and I had a leather latch string lock on it. You just pull leather strap from outside to lift the wooden slat on the inside. At night, you just pull in the leather strap to lock the door. On the back door tho', I had a white porcelain door knob put on it, but door is fashioned the same as front. There is a small window in the loft. You can see a kerosene heater in this pic. But we've not used it. My wood burning cook stove has not been installed yet. I can't wait till we get that done! I better get back outside and see what else I can get done.
~~Blessings, Mikki

Yes, I will be carrying water from the creek, fun fun, lol. I'm going to use homespun material to make curtains, not sure what color yet. Or just plain muslin with handmade lace on the bottom. Not quite made my mind up. I think homespun would be best coz muslin would blend in with the wood color too much.
