The Lettered Cottage Magazine- Screened Inn Issue


Hey there! I hope all is well in your neck of the world this spendid Saturday afternoon. Everything is groovy over here at TLC. Well, except for the fact that I’m still hobbling around here due to the large-and-in-charge invisible shards of glass embedded in the ball of my foot and big toe. Yowza! But […]

Screened Inn: Sand & Sea Bedroom


Hola! In addition to stepping on what has to the worlds smallest glass factory, (Can you say embedded and invisible? Ouch!) I also added a few more pages to the Screened Inn e-zine today. Remember this room? When you enter the house it’s the first thing you see on the other side of the kitchen, […]

Happy weekend friend! We got a lot of work done around here last week (still trying to play catch up), but we did get to break away for a few hours yesterday for this little guy’s 1st birthday party… (This pic was taken last Halloween) And last night, I added a few more pages to […]

The "Lettered Love" Room at Screened Inn

Home Sweet Hairballs

We’re home! And, boy oh boy, do we have some cleaning/weeding/mowing/mail-sorting to do. It’s crazy what can happen to a place when you go away for three weeks!(How can one kitty cat, and one 9 pound dog shed SO much fur!?!?!) But before we even think about tackling any of that “fun stuff”, I thought […]

Meet the Cottage, Name the Cottage

After a pit stop for groceries at Walmart (and Publix!) in Savannah, we rolled onto Tybee Island around 6:00 Monday night. The weather was absolutely perfect, and the atmosphere was just as refreshing as I remember it being. And even though we were some three hundred miles away from our Lettered Cottage, we both felt […]

My Birthday, Band Boys & the Beach House!

Today I’m celebrating my 36th birthday with my 35 year old husband. And by “celebrating”, I mean looking at, and laughing with him all day! And doing his laundry for him while he tells me about his trip. Ya see, I haven’t seen my Mr. for an entire month. And man has it been one […]
