1940’s Beach Cottage Kitchen Remodel
Y’all, we are so close to having the Beach Cottage Small Kitchen back together.
Did you see this sneak preview I shared earlier in the week?
I can’t wait to finish!
However, we are home and expecting some serious winter weather today!
If it’s as bad as they are predicting, we could be without power and that may delay our return to the beach.
We were able to get all the kitchen shelving installed with the help of Ryobi Cordless Tools. This jigsaw go a work out for sure.
Here is a preview of what’s to come. This happened just before we left the cottage.

Adventures at the end of the dirt road
This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
Laughter is the best medicine
If this is true, we should be really healthy right now. Our kiddos took us to see Leanne Morgan at the Tangier Center in Greensboro, NC on Friday night. I laughed nonstop. If you don’t know Leanne, google her. You’ll be hooked.
I’ve also been on a mission to find a few things for the beach cottage but didn’t have a lot of luck while I was Thrifting with the Gals this week.

Coming this Week
Thrifting with the Gals will be sharing our monthly Blog Hop on Thursday this week. We have a new permanent host – Robyn at Robyn’s French Nest. Our guest host this month is Lora Bloomquiest.
I’m sharing what you should be looking for in Thrift Stores this year. Be sure to check back.
In addition, I’ll be sharing some winter “it’s so easy even I’ll make it” recipes.
I love a scented candle and have so many candles from Antique Candle Co., however when creating a cozy centerpiece such as this one, you should be cautious about a fire hazard.
These flameless, flickering candles are a perfect choice. Plus, they have a remote control, which is very important when you have arranged your candles to nestle together. If you had to remove them to switch them on, you would destroy your arrangement. See these great candles here.
Thanks so much for joining me today for Dirt Road Adventures. I’ll share snow pics if we get the storm.
