Well, when we decided NOT to add a new Master Bedroom and Bath, I decided to use the clawfoot bathtub we had purchased anyway! So, one Thursday morning I built the enclosure, made countless visits to Lowe's for plumbing supplies and a shower fixture and created my outdoor bathing area. It looks even better when all my ferns and plants are there, but it's 25 degrees out and my plants are tucked safely away in my warm studio. There's nothing better than a fire in the chimenea, candles lit, a hot lavender bubble bath, a glass of red wine and the stars in the sky above you to unwind after a long day!
I'm Ann Marie, a wife and mother of 3 wonderful and beautiful daughters. I’ve been married since 1978. I’m a custom seamstress- I love the creativity of whipping together custom linens and window treatments for clients. We’ve recently moved to an older home half the size of the newer home we were living in. This little cottage was built in 1951 and we love her. This blog will document our journey over the last 2 years of what we started with and where we are now. It has truly been a labor of love. We have done almost all of the work on this house ourselves.
I hope you enjoy the journey as much as we do!
