I’m back:) Heartfelt thanks to those of you who have waited patiently for me to unpack my last box! Here’s a little snapshot of our journey to our Kentucky cabin…

july cabin map

We traveled 2800 miles by car and moving van across 9 states in mid-June. We were blessed with great weather, good health, and no breakdowns along the route. It was truly an incredible, memorable trip…

july cabin cat

Upon our arrival this charming creature greeted us. We were told the cat came with the cabin! Paul named him ‘Thomas’ since he’s a Tom but we’ve since learned his real name is ‘Alvin.’ He’s pretty sweet!

Here’s a view of our humble home below blue skies…

july cabin porch swing

One of my favorite places is out on the front porch. My dear Kentucky kin gifted us with this porch swing. Needless to say, I’m swinging every chance I get!

july cabin screen inside

Here’s looking out the screen door into the woods. There’s almost always a breeze and we’re surrounded by oaks and pecans and hickories, etc. Lael would definitely approve!

july cabin dresser

Our wonderful realtor and his wife told us about the Peddler’s Mall nearby and I found this lovely dresser and tucked it in a cabin corner…

july cabin key

Down the way in Paint Lick is Todd’s Antiques where I discovered my old desk. I’m quite smitten with the little key. Lots of cubbyholes within…

july cabin desk

It’s called a ‘plantation desk’ and is thought to be about 200 years old. I was able to bring it home for a very reasonable price. I believe the wood is walnut. Love the matching seat…

One of the biggest joys has been moving in family heirlooms like my great-granny’s china cabinet. She lived on a farm right down the road from our cabin…

A little logging and laundry off the back deck. The cabin is truly a work in progress and has many charms and eccentricities and flaws! But it’s a joy to wake up in every morning and call it home. Home at last!

Now, enough of me. What about YOU? I’ve missed reading friends here and need to know what’s happening in your neck of the woods. Please feel free to write a novella and catch me up…!
