Big Girl Playhouse

Hi sweet friends! Sorry it's been so long since I last posted. It just seems like time is just flying by! I hope you are all staying cool this Summer. Here in Texas it has been so hot and windy! This kind of weather is not too good for my flowers. They look like they have been baked in the oven! Oh well...when it gets cold outside I will be wishing it was warm, so I might as well enjoy it while it lasts.

I am so excited!!! My sweet hubby is having me a big girl playhouse / storage building built. I have been wanting one for a long time. I really need a place to keep all of my treasures that I list on my website. Our house is overflowing with pretties! I guess there could be worse things to have your house overflowing with! LOL! Anyway... I wanted to share the building journey with ya'll, but I got a little behind. So now I am going to catch you all up.

This little building is going to serve multiple purposes. In the front part, I am going to fix it up like a cute little shabby chic cottage for me to play in. It has a loft in the top where I can store my totes full of holiday decorations and stuff. The back left hand corner is going to be my little greenhouse where I can keep my plants over the Winter. I will continue to share the building and decorating process with you.

I hope you all have are having a fun and safe Summer!

Until next time...
