We’re going away this weekend! I’m so excited. We’re renting a cabin (no, unfortunately not the one above.. More on that in a minute.) I have so many romantic ideas of cabin life. Vintage blankets, linens and quilts, flannel shirts, mismatched enamelware, an iron bed, an old fashioned stove, homemade pies, pottery vases filled with wildflowers. Oh, and yes, the outdoors.
Did you ever see the movie Always, with Richard Dreyfuss and Holly Hunter? I watched that movie 20 times, it seems, just to study the decor of their little cabin. So magical. (And remember when he bought her “girl clothes”? She looked like an angel.)
So you can imagine how delighted I was when the Los Angeles Time’ Home section ran this feature (and online slideshow) recently of Suzan Fellman’s wonderful cabin, pictured above and below, in Big Bear.

Here’s a little tour of Fellman’s mountain abode:
An adorable bathroom with a clawfoot tub (and I love the giant ball of yarn!). A cute little dog, an essential trip companion. And look at this kitchen…
…and cozy living room…
The cabin we’re renting is more basic. But I’m sure it will be charming. All you need is four walls, the wilderness, and a few (dozen) lovely vintage accessories. My husband assures me that there’s WIFI, but I’m not sure…So if you don’t hear from me until Monday, you’ll know I had a computer glitch — or an encounter with a California black bear.
UPDATE: Saturday. We’re at the cabin. It’s very cute! Getting tons of pictures. And we have wifi! Thank you everyone for your lovely comments! So happy! BBQing for dinner…
UPDATE: Sunday.. Hello everyone! Here sipping coffee and reading a stack of magazines. Can’t wait to show you my Polaroids. Will upload them as soon as we get home this evening..have lots to tell you!
