Train Caboose Guest House – An Unlikely 4-Word Phrase

25 Feb

One of the many selling points of our little city cabin is the backyard: narrow and deep with bilevel decking and two huge raised stone flower beds flanking either side of its expanse, a stone and pebble path winding its way down the half-grown grass leading to…*wait for it*…a train caboose. On tracks. In our backyard. It was retrofitted to be a guest house with a bedroom, living room, kitchenette and full bath. I KNOW, RIGHT? So without further adieu…a pictorial. I am going to have to add more to this because I realized I hardly captured it’s caboosey-ness the first go ’round.

Master Retreat a la Little House on the Prairie

24 Feb

Here’s our Master Bed & Bath all dolled up for the Sadie Hawkins dance. Actually, no…it looks like this every day. It’s Shabby Chic (although I kinda shudder at that term since it’s gone so mainstream and is oft used incorrectly) and also Flapper Chic and also Farmhouse Chic and also Granny Chic and Thrifty Chic and Upcycled Chic also Eclectic Alternative Chic. SO basically it’s just like totally chic, y’all. But what it is to me is a relaxing place where my eyes and mind can rest. With two monchichis underfoot all day e’ry day, a retreat is an important place to have. I would say this is the most “done” room in the house. Mainly because there is no more wall space.
