Thanksgiving is almost here. I can feel it in the air! Is there any better time of year?
My apologies for being away so long. Life showed up, claimed my time, and is only now easing up. But listen to this news: I'm happy to say that I am about 3 weeks away from beginning renovations on a cabin! The dream of my heart for so long is about to happen. You'll come with me, won't you? You'll help and advise from there as we take a shell of a cottage and turn it into a cozy, little home, right?
I hope so. It's about time we tackle another home together, isn't it?
You should know: I'm going all bargains and estate finds and creative on this venture. While a shopping spree at Restoration Hardware would be incredible, it's simply not in the budget. Matter of fact, this weekend I scored a heavy kitchen sink off Craigslist for $10. TEN DOLLARS! I'm using it, too. I'm a girl on a budget, so we're going to be putting in this cabin and starting the gardens off our sheer ingenuity, creativity, and elbow grease. Oh, I'm just so excited!
In the meantime, I have a few recipes to send your way shortly. And a how-to on my new paperless paper towels. And I'm looking to dip some candles. Does anyone know a great way to get started in that?
And oh yes. My shop, Balm and Honey, is updated with goodies from my latest knitting kick. Hurry to claim yours before the shop is picked clean! (I think my favorite is the Lemon Tea. Those I want to keep...) And thanks, as ever, for your support. Could not do this next phase of my life without your encouragement and help. :)
There are some interesting days ahead. Glad we have each other, aren't you?
Happy November. -Brin
