Remodeling Reminiscing...

Hello friends! Since it was a year ago this week that we downsized our life and moved into our remodeled mobile home cottage, and since I have a number of new blog followers, I thought I would do a little walk down memory lane and share some of my favorite before and after photos from our remodeling journey...

It was good for me to take a look back today, because sometimes all I can see are the things that are yet to be done (bathrooms, painting doors, etc), but I forget how far we've actually come. I hope as you look around your life and despair of the things left undone, that you'll take a moment and reflect on just how far you've actually come...

...and take comfort in this...

"And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished..."

  1. Beautiful makeover pictures. Now I know there is still hope for our bathroom that hubby still hasn't finished remodeling.

    Hello Becky! I've been following your blog for a while, and the entries about the remodeling of your adorable country cottage are by far my favorite entries. I am amazed at the progress and changes you have made, and it just feels so comfortable and homey. I look forward to reading about all of your future projects, as well as your journey as a full time freelancer. Many blessings!

    Your page is such eye candy. I love sitting here with a mug of coffee just scrolling down the page. It's always a special treat coming here.

  4. You certainly did a great job with your redecorating Becky! It doesn't look ike the same place! you really turneds it into a sweet and charming cottage home:>)

  5. I just joined Texas-Blogging-Gals and was going down the list of the ones in zone 2, and here you are! You don't know me, but I used to love visiting your site (absolutely loved the photos of what you've done with your mobile home). Then we had a computer crash and I lost all my bookmarks. I've got Just Bee'n Me saved in the A list - which are my favorite ones.

  6. Hello, I have just been introduced to your lovely blog by a mutual reader and would LOVE to feature your home on my blog Mobile Home Living ( Please get in contact with me there or via email If you go there you will see how I do the features and interviews. You cottage is just lovely!

  7. Becky, Did your guest room have a built in closet? we plan to remove ours and I was wondering if you did...Did you have any complications?....


I am deeply appreciative of the time you've taken to leave a comment - thank you!
