Tiny house update.....

My bad, It has been months since I last posted but I am back. Thanks for your patience and for prodding me to post updates of my little retreat, my girl cave, my she-she shack. Simplicity is a word familiar to tiny house enthusiasts. Many tiny house residents are pleased to announce that they have become minimalists in their quest to simplify their life. I can not say that I would be excited about being a minimalist. When Slabtown Customs was building my home I saw that as a good reason to go shopping. I helped support the economy as well as small local businesses. Oh, and I helped clean up a few curbs from what others dis guarded as trash. I had fun collecting vintage items to re purpose and up cycle for my new tiny retreat.  Giving a vintage item a new life is recycling in it's purest form while preventing it from being tossed in the landfill.

 I will back track in future posts and show you some of the ways I up cycled my vintage finds. I will show you how I turned trash into treasures for my tiny house. Here is a partial list of my future posts.

OK, are you ready to see what I have been up to since the last time I posted?  Here are some pictures of the interior of my tiny home. I am an amateur blogger and have not figured out how to make the pictures larger. It could take till Jan for me to figure that out. Any tips from you pro's are welcome.  Sorry about that.


 And now, with great joy I present to you..."my menopause cave".
