I just spent the last 3 days in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Didn't do much but hang out on the beach. The pic above is the only picture I even took of the beach while I was there and that isn't like me. It's from the hotel room. I did however bring with me a Cottages and Cabins magazine. I love this magazine because there aren't really any advertisements in it, the whole magazine is nothing but beautiful photos of adorable cottages that you can hardly stop looking at. I couldn't find the magazine online or anything to show a link for it, but I bought it at my local grocery store.
Here are just a few pictures from it.
This last kitchen is so cozy looking, something about it feels so familiar to me. Love the wallpaper on the ceiling. There are more than just kitchens in this magazine, but these were the ones I was drawn to the most. One of the houses I looked at when I was trying to find my house had red laminate counters just like in this 2nd photo. Every one cringed at the red counters and I remember thinking how cute they were and that I thought I could work with them. I would have probably tried to do something similar.
Ok, back from vacation and time to get back to real life again! I need to start working on some projects. I want to paint the cabinets in my kitchen because they are very dirty and dingy. I'm also going to try to focus on getting my patio area fixed up and revamping my guest room a little since I'm sleeping in the guest room now. Stay tuned!
