Seasons Change

It doesn't seem too long ago that this was our backyard landscape.

This is from the hallway looking out to the back yard. The barkcloth drapes came with the Love Shack. Lovely!

And now! The dogwood tree is blooming and the lilac hedge is so wonderful!

I am thankful that they planted 3 different shades of lilacs.
Our view from the back yard now that the trees have come in. So beautiful!

The end of another beautiful day.

So....I've Heard

Can't wait till we can plant something neat in that huge planter below!

The fence post caps are solar lights. Way cool!!

 We hope to some day put "real" bamboo in place of the "reed" but for now it will more than do!

OK, so to really appreciate the fence, you must be reminded of what once was...
See the lopped off arbor vitae on the side of the house? They were very old and had definitely seen better days.    

And now I will leave you with a glimpse of last night's splendor. Aaaah, we do love life here in the Love Shack!

Lovin' The Sunshine

Well, it is another stellar day here in beautiful Southern Oregon! While hubby is digging fence posts (he is putting a fence in where the ugly arbor vitaes were) I have been a busy bee. If you have never been to the Love Shack, it has a real "California" style entry. (One of the many reasons we fell in love with the house.) Along with the tiled entry steps, there are built in planters. I didn't want to put in bloomin' "cottage-y" plants, so we went with grasses.....perfect!

I bought a couple boxes of shells a while back at a yard sale. Just the right touch in the planters, don't you think?

OK, honey.....I'm all done with my project! Please pass the iced tea.......

Come Together......

This is our new groovy lamp.
And our new dresser. Hubby went to buy the lamp, and found this too! A $25 steal I say!

And check out this little gem. It goes perfectly with the new dresser! Got it the other day while picking up a desk from craigslist. The Love Shack is coming together quite nicely!

Love Finds

Look what Hubby brought home! Isn't it the cutest find? (craigslist of course!) I think this man is a keeper! (Well, and so is this little gem....:)

And while I'm at it, here are some super groovy pics of our original green bathroom.

 This toilet seat rocks! (Not literally, thank you.)

 The atomic tiles couldn't be cooler.
 Love the lighting too.
The original sad they covered it. I had to display a sample out of respect. And yes indeed, this is a pretty cool towel! :)

Before I go, check out the view this morning from the slider in the hall. Every day I find another reason to love the Love Shack!
