~My Little Girlie Building~

I've been wanting to share pictures of my little building for so long. It's been a work in progress for several years now. It even was used as a chicken coop one winter a few years back. We didnt have anywhere to keep the chickens over the winter so we lined the floor and up the walls with plastic put there pens in and it worked pretty good!
As you can see my little building is very girlie, with pink trim, white painted floors with splatted paint in pink, yellow, light blue and light green, then polka dots speckled here and there in the same colors. The curtains were brand new vintage from the 60's and I had been holding on to them for quite some time, they worked perfect! The vintage hanging light was purchased at a garage sale for a whopping $5.00, the glass is about 1/4" thick its really pretty when lit up!


Here are a few treasures in one corner, the pink dress was mine as a little girl, my mom was going to get rid of several of my clothes from my childhood I took them home and this was in the bag. The hanger its on is so cute, made from wood, irmi style, I just purchased it in Pennsylvania at an antique store.


A close up of a few more treasures. The kitty pitcher is made in Japan by Lipper and Mann, I loved her face, so awesome. She was a recent purchase from Pennsylvania also!


This is another shelf on the wall with some sweet kitties and a puppy. My building is a work in progress, but theres lots more to show and I want to share it all with you. It's a peaceful pleasant spot for me to enjoy. I think I need a name for my building, I may have to have a contest to "name my building". I'll let you know when!

I love your little sanctuary. What a treasure. Hubby built me a backyard cabin 5 years ago and it's been my sanctuary, my sewing workshop, grandkids' playhouse, and my own little room. Thanks for sharing!......Kady (StoneyHillCabin)

OH MY, How awesome!!! Love all your goodies you have decorated with. My DH built me a cottage about 9 or 10 years ago. I have mine fixed up with old antiques and primitives. I'm in the process right now getting it cleaned up for the Summer and working on the gardens around it. DH also built me a covered porch last year for it. So we got to get the cottage and porch repainted. Thanks so much for sharing yours with us. Can't wait to see more.
