Bargain shopping for the cabin

I love a good bargain, especially picking up cute items for our log cabin. I've been very fixated on my guest room (really, you'll enjoy being my guest!) and keep picking up odds and ends for it. I have a birds and blooms theme going on.

My recent store favorite has been the Christmas Tree Shop. Don't be fooled by the name - they have great home accents for indoors and outdoors. Take a look at this butterfly hanging I found - only $2.99? Can you believe it?

Here's a view of the guest room. (Really, it is a nice view from there, never mind my car that's parked too close!) That green mason glass candle holder on the table is from the Christmas Tree Shop - price - only $1.99!

Anyways, I'm still working on your room for when you come visit. I saw a cute dresser that has birds and flowers hand painted on it at Home Goods. I also want to pick up a nice headboard. Maybe I should put a wine cellar in there too...what do you think? (I bet a lot of you want to come visit me now!)

The girl who made our log cabin complete...

Today is Scout's birthday! She is one years old! From the time we got our log cabin, I knew we needed a dog to make it complete. (We had the log cabin cat, but of course I needed to add to my zoo!)

Here is Scout at 4 weeks old and the first time we got to see her. She gave Greg a kiss on the hand as soon as he picked her up. He was a goner!

Seriously, don't you think she could've been a model?

Okay, she's not acting like a model here.

The face of innocence...

Happy Birthday to my beautiful girl!

P.S. As long as I live, I will never click on another Facebook attachment, link, photo, nada, nothing! That virus reeked havoc on my computer and I had to have it "wiped" completely! I was having to go to school to use the computer but now I'm back! Thank you for your visits - I appreciate it!
