Sorry everyone but the renovation is put on hold. My husband thought he was going to be home for a while and had planned to begin tearing into it! But his job has taken him out of town again. I have thought about closing this blog and returning to only managing my 'home blog' Sea Cottage, but I will keep it open for now. I just may not post until we can begin renovating The Pearl and then continue to blog about her many travels. We do have a deadline for her renovation to be completed by...August 2013. We will be taking her to the coast for our 25th wedding anniversary!
Our surf shack on wheels is getting a partial renovation soon! The entire side that the door is on needs to be removed and rebuild due to dry rot. We also have to redo all electrical and gas pipes. I will be repainting the interior completely white and we will add new knobs on the drawers and a tin backsplash behind the kitchenette.
It has been over a year since we have been able to take 'The Pearl' anywhere because of fear that the side might fall off on the road!
I will also be taking down all the shabby chic decor and hanging all white sailcloth or natural linen curtains going with a more natural, neutral, nautical decor...think driftwood, white seashells, grey foggy skies, and a splash of sea blues. Using this clam shell photo as inspiration.
Of course I will share the details with you as we begin to tear her apart. The Pearl's Renovation Coming Soon! Hold on to your seatbelts. ox
So I decided to go shopping at Target...and while strolling through the aisles I came across the Summer issue of Romantic Country... and to my excitement opened the pages to find a sweet little feature of my Nora Pearl~ 'Sea Cottage on Wheels'!
I have to thank the lovely Editor Mary Forsell, whom contacted me months ago and really worked her magic to include me in this issue. I knew nothing about pixels or high resolution photos, which are a must for publishing. So 'thank you Mary', the feature is beautiful! I gently tossed the magazine in my cart, even though she is sending me a complimentary copy. She is so kind and I am thankful to have met her.
When you get your copy of the Summer issue of Romantic Country look for me(and Nora Pearl) in the blog spot section on Travel and Getaways.
It is Nora Pearl's first feature! and she is so cute. ox
