Last year I made these glitter houses which I posted about here, and this is about the extent of my Christmas decorating at the cabin. As I’m typing this, I’m not at the cabin, but our rental, and I’ve done such little decorating it’s not even worth mentioning. It’s cold and windy today, and the decorations are in the basement of the detached garage (yes, you read that right…our garage has a basement. How cool is that?) and I’m feeling warm and cozy and don’t want to go outside.
Isn’t it interesting how in the picture above the light looks white but below it’s yellow? That’s just from taking the picture at a different time of day. Either way, I love the glow!
Here’s a rogue glitter house that even though it isn’t white, I think it’s too cute to leave in a box. I kinda want to live there.
When the colder weather creeps in I start turning my attention to the inside and try to figure out what I can get Fisherman to fix up. Right now, I have a fairly ambitious list of things which I’m sure won’t all get done this winter, but that’s ok.
The last time we were at the cabin a few weeks ago we started organizing this space which as you can see desperately needs it. It’s the ugliest space at the cabin. Actually, I will venture to say it’s the ugliest space in the western hemisphere, and I don’t imagine you’re going to argue with me about that. It’s just used as a storage room, and that’s not going to change, but it needs to be more efficient, not to mention I don’t want my eyes to burn every time I look at it. I doubt the makeover will go viral :/. Just some basic changes like adding some shelves and maybe lightening up the space a little would be good enough.
I want to put up a curtain to cover the hideous burner and duct work, but Fisherman said it’s not a good idea because of the heat. Little does he know where there’s a will there’s a way…can you say ‘fire resistant fabric spray’?
This is my number one priority, then it’s either going to be my closet or most likely the pantry area which will get a makeover. I suppose when you have a house there’s always something to fix, something to make over or something to fiddle around with. Are you with me?
