In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

Merry Christmas to all! And it is most DEFINITELY winter, now...

The shed wore a festive wreath for its photo op!

...and here's hoping you all have a wonderful Christmas season, with friends, family, warmth and comfort; solace for those that need it, as well.  God's blessings on you, today and always, and best wishes from us to you.  May 2014 bring all the love and creativity you could wish for!

Joseph makes sure the little cousins are fed...

I get some sketching in...

You can tell this is a faux woodstove.  (Too bad I didn't leave it on overnight!)

And brrrr!  -8 when I got up this morning; just about zero, now.  Went out to the shed to bump up the heat with this little beauty this Christmas Eve morning, and it was 32 degrees in there WITH the tower heater set at 60+!  Cats' water is frozen on the floor; Belle went out, briefly, and right back in, crying and complaining LOUDLY.    So, time for more dependable heat, I think.

Thinking baseboard heat...the shed needs a Christmas present, too!

It's Winter!

First snow, the other day...and 10 degrees!

...and my old heater just wasn't cutting it any was 38 degrees in there that morning, so we are REALLY glad we bit the bullet and decided to go for the new faux woodstove, on sale at Plow and Hearth!
You may remember I'd been wishing for a stove like that for three years now (check out this post)...but why make any sudden moves, right?
