I’m Lisa and welcome to Cabin in the City. It’s a pleasure to have you here.
A little story about this space and its name. A few years ago, I purchased my home, a house that belonged to my amazing and swanky great-aunt. The thing about this home is that it’s peculiar to say the least: set up sideways on its lot, cedar siding inside and out, green carpet everywhere, a wallpapered tree mural. In all the years I spent running around this house, I never really thought of it as being anything but extraordinarily and exquisitely bizarre – that is until friends, neighbors, contractors and the like began coming inside and all of them, every last one of them, had the same remark: this reminds me of a cabin. And as soon as it was uttered, I realized that I was sitting in a cabin in the middle of Milwaukee. And here we are: Cabin in the City.
As for me, I’m living the life in this funny old home along with my sweet husband Michael and our two tabbies Mukki and Zara. When I’m not rambling here, I’m rambling over at Taste of Home where I’m an associate editor. I fill the rest of my days stitching away for Kaminski Handicraft and trying my hand at any craft I can get my hands on.
So join me here for tales of this weird old home, Midwestern meanderings, cats, crafts and more.
