Small Space Living: Life on the "Movie Set"

I don't know if you have ever visited a place like Old Tucson Studios where many famous western movies were shot. If you have you will understand what I am talking about now. I live in a make-believe world too.

When you look behind the doors or inside the cabinets it is all just pretend.  Oh, I live here and put things in cupboards. I scrub and clean and hang pictures on the wall. But all the while I know I am putting lipstick on a pig! It is all very temporary.

My daughter and granddaughter are coming to visit next week so I have prepared a space for my granddaughter to sleep on a small twin bed. I put a TV tray by her bed and paper flowers are in a tin can. The wall was destroyed when we put our porch on last year. You can see styrofoam insulation and aluminum siding on the insidew. I put a screw in a small hole in a metal support so I could hang a string of made believe water jugs on it. A very old desk lamp will light her space.

Honestly, it doesn't look too bad! In fact, it is about as good as it gets.  When you live in a very small tin can that still has the wheels on underneath, living in a pretend movie world become the everyday reality.  And, believe it or not, I love it!

Have a wonderful day.

  1. LOL, I like your "style." Maybe your next step could be ... living on a boat.

  2. We really enjoyed our time with you last week. Your advice to buy the place we've been living? We took it!

  3. Tom,
    I loved your comment about the boat...this is as near to living like that as we are going to get. In fact, I think some boats have more room. There has to be a place of everything and everything has to be put in its place.

  4. Linda,

    We came home from the visit with you renewed...you and Art are doing what we did 7 years ago. We know that life is today and making that day come alive is what it is all about. Tic, toc, tic, toc!

  5. Our new home doesn't have wheels underneath, but we are learning how to live in 700 square feet. We have everything we need and overall, I am loving it. We retired and moved 3 months ago. Enjoy your visits!
