The best-laid plans of mice and men! Am I right?
Oh well, the mother/daughter beach trip didn’t happen.
When it was time for my daughter to join me at the beach, the bad weather was rolling in.
Rainy and cold was the forecast and since that eliminated our favorite thing, (reading on the beach for hours), we postponed our trip.
However, Brad was able to get the cedar shake shingles installed on the front of the cottage. YEAH!
Y’all this tiny cottage has been remodeled from top to bottom and inside and out. And we did it all by ourselves.
If you missed the inside check out Tiny House Ideas for Beach Cottage Before and After.
So should we paint them or leave them to age naturally?
I really need your help.
But don’t they look good?
He did such a great job.

Adventures at the end of the dirt road
This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
While Brad was adding shingles to the cottage, I was helping a friend with a screen printed canvas that just wasn’t working with her decor.
I can’t wait for you to see what I did to make it work for her. Stay turned and I’ll share the process next week here.
In Case You Missed It!

Why Didn’t I Think of That?
Each week there are so many wonderful blog posts and I’m sharing some of my favorites with you today.
