I realize that our 2013 Christmas post is a bit late and I apologize for that. But I’m excited to get to show you Tonita’s Pink Christmas in her beautifully decorated tiny house.
She owns an 8′ by 24′ tiny house on a trailer with an interior of 8′ by 18′ and has put forth great effort to show us all her little home. Tonita, thank you so much for sharing this with us and I hope you can forgive me for getting out to everyone the day after Christmas.
I was spending the day with friends and family away from home so I didn’t have a chance to publish this until now. In a moment I’ll pass it on to Tonita. I hope you had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones and I’m wishing you a happy new year. Thank you so much for your support and readership this year.
I’m Dreaming of a Very Pink Christmas (In a Tiny House)
Guest Post by Tonita of Shabby Chic Tiny Retreat
Here she is, my 8 x 24′ tiny house. The interior measures 8 x 18′. My little shabby chic tiny retreat. When I sit in my home it is like being wrapped in a hug. So cozy, so sweet. So perfect. I dressed her in pink and white for the holidays and the theme ” I’m dreaming of a pink Christmas” seems fitting.
Before I purchased my tiny house I had an idea of how I wanted to decorate it. I was hugely inspired by a stylist named Sandra Foster who has the most amazing tiny house in the world, at least to me. I prefer it over any tiny home that I have ever laid eyes on. It is by far my favorite tiny house and blog ever. Her talent and style has inspired women all over the world. Her tiny studio has been in tons of magazines books and on television shows.
I hung Christmas lights in my master loft and also used white fabric draped from the ceiling as a sort of ‘ knock-off’, style of Sandy’s adorable cottage in the Catskills. I want to take the time here to recognize her and hope that she sees my little knock off loft look, as a form of flattery and know that I acknowledge her as the queen of shabby cottage décor. Thanks for inspiring me, to try a similar look for my little shabby chic girl cave and retreat.
A very special THANKS to two special and talented lady’s who’s crafts and art work helped to make my little tiny house more festive this holiday season. Jill fromRose Cottage Chic painted the adorable pink sign with roses that says – I’m dreaming of a pink Christmas that I hung in my window above my table. She mixed her own milk paint recipe for my sign. She has an amazing website and also does custom orders.
I also want to thank Michelle, who made the little bunting (the hand made W-I-S-H letters) that are vintage style, which I hung against the mirror above my fireplace. She also made my sweet W-I-S-H vintage tree topper. It is a pleasure to do business with people that are so pleasant, who provide incredible personalized customer service. I also loved the thoughtful gift wrap (below picture) that my order arrived in. Michelle has an Etsy shop called Back through time with gifts for all seasons and for absolutely no reason. Both women have wonderful hand made crafts.
I also wanted to include some very interesting information about the color pink which I found on Debbie’s site. By the way, Debbie bought a 320 square foot home from Scott of Slabtown Customs, who is the same builder that built my tiny house. Look around her blog once you are there to see more of her sweet little family home.
May you be blessed this holiday season. Merry Christmas.
