Sandra Foster found this, Victorian, 9 x 10 foot hunting shack just across the creek from where she and her husband reside in the Catskills.
And renovated it into her very own, tiny, shabby chic gone wild, playhouse. She replaced the tree trunks that had been used to hold up the roof and added a front porch.
The door, with it's original paint, swings out over a step made from salvaged wood {found in that thar crik} and used as a tool drawer - which is a very cool idea. Also pictured: those awesome pink boots, she likes to stomp around in.
It's wonderfully sugary, sticky, romantic and sort of *strange- all at once.
The posthumous tears of Victoria Magazine are raining with longing, upon this little cream puff.

She's created a total escape from trailer park guy. He can't even get up to the bed for chrissakes.
