  3. Everyone has mentioned so many of the reclaimed and refurbished items used for this year's blog cabin that it makes us all marvel how inventive and hard working the remodeling team truly is! Today, the refurbished dresser in the guest bedroom caught my eye and I realize it is one of those pieces that will remind many of us of the homes and times we grew up in. It is a very welcoming piece of nostalgia and will welcome home every guest to the cabin. Thank you!

  5. I have three favorite things, but one is so small I'm not sure it counts ; ) The front door is beautiful, I love Craftsman style houses and this is one reason why. Next, I love the widow's walk and the detail of the railings. And lastly, so small, but darling, are the vintage fishing bobbers as pulls in the sunroom.

  10. Though give-away has ended, could you provide any info you may on Vintage Water Ski Print? Almost sure I watched performance 50+ yrs ago. Looking thru old family photos to locate "Glass Bottom Boat" with promo frame. One of many taken. I can't remember the FL location & all family members have passed. My Daughter is a licensed Interior Designer in FL. Would love to share the location. xxxxx Springs maybe?
