It’s been a dream for a long time, to live in the Blue Ridge Mountains in a log cabin … and after 58 years, it finally came true! This morning I sat in the living room and drank coffee while I watched the birds warming themselves in the bright sunshine on my porch railing.
The tree looks so jolly and happy in the living room! The birds on the tree look as if they just flew through the front door to warm themselves! Once again, I have added the vintage ornaments inherited from family members!
The table has never looked more inviting with the stockings behind it going up the stairs. I’ll have eight people here Christmas and wanting a stocking for each person, the mantle seemed crowded no matter how I arranged them. It was Eric’s idea to run them up the stairs.
Yesterday, I made a quick drive up to Serenity Mountain to see the property in Plott Creek where the permanent house will be built. It was so peaceful and quiet that I didn’t exactly want to leave. I walked down by the creek and looked up to where the house will be and couldn’t believe it all was coming into fruition. In my imagination, I could almost see the house sitting there in the trees … the noisy creek babbling at my feet.
After I got back home, I had some homemade rustic soup and called it a day. ❤
House was rented from Select Homes in Waynesville, NC

THAT’S the rental house? Sheesh!!!! How crazy cool is the permanent one going to be? So how are you dealing with finally turning 38? 😉

You have decorated your cabin so nicely. I love your photos. Glad you are happy in the mountains.
Joe … if this house could be moved to the property on Plott Creek, I’d jump on it! It’s tiny, but I feel so at home here! I have an appointment with the eye doctor in Atlanta tomorrow and won’t be there for the 18 inch snowstorm this weekend, but I so wish I were. The permanent home is not a log cabin like this, but wow … I’d give it up in a heartbeat. I think I was meant for the simple life! 🙂
18 inches? Dang!!!!! The ski resort folks must be doing their snow dance. I hope you kids have acquired an appropriate vehicle for your new surroundings.
