A couple of weeks ago when I went up to our trailer/cabin, I shared some pictures of the deer blind my dad, brother and nephews were working so hard on (Post here).
Two of my nephews went back up to the cabin during Labor Day weekend and worked like crazy to get the staircase and landing built.
Now, I have to tell you, this is serious work and this blind is a serious project……to my nephews and brother. They are serious hunters. They have been working hard and spending every free couple of days they had heading up to the cabin (almost 300 miles from home) to try to get this done before bow season (Oct. 1st). It’s a total guy thing!
Well, I just couldn’t help myself! Wicked Diann needed to come out and play! I told my mom about my “plan” for the tree house….er… deer blind.
So, my mom and I decided that while the boys weren’t here, we would help add some touches!
One day while we were at the cabin, my mom and I headed to a local town to do some shopping and thrifting. We found some special things just for the deer blind. You know, just to make it special for the boys! (insert evil grin!)
My mom and I lugged a bunch of
We “Dolled it up”! It’s a Deer Blind Tea Party!
I bought some things at the thrift store just to set this up! Yes, that is how dedicated I was to doing this! LOL
My mom gathered some things from the cabin to add even more special touches.
These were the frilliest and girliest toss pillows I could find at the thrift store (they are now going right back to the thrift store! LOL).
Our tea is all set!
A perfect place to enjoy chatting, some tea and doing our nails!
One MUST be comfy when enjoying some girl time in a deer blind!
Thank you Zack, Blake, Chris, Dad and big Chris for giving us such a lovely place to enjoy some relaxation time!
And how sweet of you guys to provide a beautiful window to enjoy watching the deer come in!
I'm so glad my mom made a sign otherwise people would accidently think this is a place to hunt deer!
See, I even added a camo valance!
We tried to make it inviting even from the porch!
Mom and I can’t thank you boys enough for our lovely Girl’s Retreat!
What a charming getaway! You guys did such a great job! Thank you! (wink).
Doesn’t every girl dream of a “Girl’s Tea Room” in the middle of the woods?
When I got home from the cabin, I texted my brother and nephews a few of these pictures. My brother thought it was hilarious but, my nephew just kept saying to my brother, “I don’t get it”. LOL
I’ll tell you what, my mom and I worked our tails off hauling all this stuff out into the middle of the woods. Carrying it up the stairs into this deer blind, setting everything up and then taking everything down the stairs and back to the cabin! Not to mention, it was 94 degrees that day! We sweated like crazy! But, it was SOOOO worth it! LOL
I hope you enjoyed stopping by for tea today!
