  2. HEY ! ! ! It's mid-February 2013 in the midst of the winter's cccccoldest week, so who in their right mind would want to call southeast Michigan home, when, injust a month, that gorgeous Carolina coast will be calling my name? I'd move in a second and my grown family would be happy to call this lovely coastal getaway their permanent summer home any time they could get away. They love that coast and spend every get away day there anyway — while I stay home up north and dog sit for them all. Move over sunshine, sandy beaches and wild horses, I'm movin' on down . . .

    • Hi LuLu's mom I so love the cold air but not that cold. How about a house swap for a week in upstate SC?

  4. Talk about a diamond in the rough. What a beautiful location too! I cannot wait to see what my fellow bloggers help to design.

    • I'am with you on this Camry Capri. It is a diamond in the rough.but after the renovation it will be a light house shining from sea to sea. I so love the old world charm of the cabin, there is so much history to every room. I do hope they keep some of the details like the fireplace but of course some TLC , also refinish those hard word floors I can't believe they painted them. How in the world did they except to keep it white? I do eagerly wait to see how we all make this a dream come true for some body. Karen Smith

  6. I'm enjoying the voting on the style for the Blog Cabin retreat. Can't wait for another room.

  7. Having fun voting too! I love the rustic look and keeping it a cabin or 'cottage by the sea' makes it so much more appealing! It reminds me of what we had growing up in a cottage during the summer in Old Saybrook, CT!
