If you've followed along with us, you're aware of our love for the outer Cape. When we'd visit, the drive home was spent daydreaming and brainstorming how we could live there, how we could make it happen.
With the moons and the stars on our side, it did.
We bought a little Cape and are busy making this old house a new home: tearing up flooring, ripping out the bathroom, cleaning and painting and getting our hands very, very dirty. It sat empty for quite some time. The roses have grown wild up and along the honey locusts, with catbirds and cardinals nesting amongst the land. It needs work. A lot. We're doing it all ourselves, on a budget, reusing and repurposing what we can. We don't come from money. We grew up with loving families, not wealthy families. This home, these 4 little rooms, will be brought back to life with our sweat, our hard work, and the devotional love in our hearts.
This home, these cedar shingled walls - we are enamored.
Things will temporarily quiet down in the Shop, but stay tuned for new goods inspired by kettle ponds, sandy shores, and the way the sun ebbs from the sky to make room for the moon.
