LOG CABIN

Good Morning Prim Folk, Happy Friday to you all!!!!!!!!!!  I love log cabins, want to live in one some day, dreams are good.  I wanted a log cabin to decorate with, a small version to place on the fireplace mantle. Have been looking for one for sometime but  are costly and shipping from the States right now is crazy as is our Canadian Dollar, so that's out. Then one day I'm looking out the back door into the back yard and spy my log cabin birdhouse, well, my mind starts working,  sometimes it does ( giggles)  I venture outside and shake the snow off the cabin, there is a log missing on one side of the birdhouse hole, but might work in my favor.  Ask Cam if he can saw a door using the hole and maybe a window where the missing log is. Sweetheart Cam says let's see what I can do, goes downstairs with the cabin, I'm excited!!!! Christmas came and went, so I was busy and not thinking of my log cabin, until Cam came upstairs and handed me my wonderful log cabin a few days after the holidays . Happy dancing!!!!!!!  Thought about what I can use for chinking in
between the logs, I want it to look real, then a friend said to use chalking, went downstairs, put some into a plastic bag, cut a hole in the corner and away I worked, turned out great. Then some brown paint and voila, I have my log cabin I've been wanting, now to win a lottery to get a real log cabin in the woods....... Wishing you a cozy weekend,Warm Blessings Francine.

  6. Wonderful solution and I'm moving in with you when you get one. It's always been my dream as well but every time I show one to Mark he rains on my parade. I think Angel and Clarice could come to love each other and we could spend all day rearranging prims.

  8. That is one awesome log cabin. Would go perfect with my log cabin hooked rug. I may have to search for one myself now..but it probably would not be as sweet as yours! Happy New Year! Janice

  10. I lived in a tiny log cabin on an island way up in the Pacific near Canada! Along the back of the cabin was a huge, huge fireplace - you could cook in it. Oh, I loved that little cabin. And I could see the sea from the window. It was a magical place!
