Sensational Stuff To Sort Through


And if you submitted a name to the “Name the Cottage” contest-

We’re having a ball reading through them all!

Diane is narrowing down her favorites (she likes so many, she’s decided to give each one of the bedrooms a name too, so there will be four winners now instead of just one!)


Yesterday, our day started with breakfast at the Sugar Shack

Then we went over to the Mess Hall to sort through all the great “stuff” Diane left for us…

The living room is literally FILLED with tons of Diane’s fab finds, so we’ll continue to sift our way through it all when we get over there today.

Here are a few shots of some of our most favorite things…





In addition to using all Diane’s killer “stuff”, some of our other plans for the place include cladding the focal wall in the living room with wood planks, creating a wall full of words in the master bedroom, and hanging a giant wood seahorse on the wall middle bath.

We’re planning to host an Open House “our side” of the Mess Hall on Saturday, June 26th, so swing by if you’d like to check out the new look in person!
(More details about the shindig coming soon.)

Lots of work to do in there in the meantime though, so I better skidaddle!


We’re also hoping to shoot some photos of Diane’s house, “Mermaid Manor”, while we’re here too…


The lovely and talented Miss Jane Coslick played a part in the design, and it was even featured in the 2009 issue of Southern Living magazine!

Here’s a sneak peek at a few shots of the inside…




Isn’t her chippy wood bar breakfast bar to die for?!
