My Retreat

I just sent this photo to Kari in response to her photo request on her blog. This is the inside of the little potting shed/garden house that my DH built me a few summers ago after I found a picture of one in an issue of Country Living Magazine. I ooohed and aaahed over that picture (and all the others I started to collect after that) so much that I think he built it for me so he wouldn't have to listen to me exclaim over the idea of a potting shed anymore. There is a funny story that happened when he was building it for me. All the neighborhood men would come over and check out the manly-sized shed he was building and my DH never once told them it was for me and all my pretties and not for him and his tools. Well, once the men saw us staining the floorboards a robin's egg blue color and the lace curtains being hung in the windows, they never came over again. It was their wives that started coming over to check it out then. Too funny!

LOL Cute story. So, is this where you do your crafting, or is it just a relaxing little place to hang out? Looks adorable! :)

This looks just like my kind of place!! I'm a regular reader of Country Living magazine so I too oggle at such pictures :-) Hard to believe this is a shed. You've made a beautiful and feminine creative space out of it!!
