Miranda Lambert's 15 rescue animals are living a pretty luxe life with the country diva and her husband, Blake Shelton, but as Lambert explains, the family's new home will afford her animals the ultimate in luxury. That is, if she can bring her Pinterest dreams to life.
"We're building a new house, and I've been saving inspiration on Pinterest,” Lambert, 31, told Country Living's June 2015 issue. The only problem? Animal lover Lambert has so far only pinned decor ideas for her pets' spaces! "A friend of mine recently said, 'I can see your Pinterest boards, and all you have on there are dog rooms.'" Lambert recalled. "My husband and I have 15 rescue animals, and I spend way too much time planning our pets' spaces. I'm like, okay, I probably need to move on to the laundry room!"
Having also just opened a boutique bed and breakfast in her hometown of Tishomingo, Okla., Lambert told Country Living she's anxious to set up her new home and just enjoy it. "Blake and I live in Tishomingo, which is roughly two hours from any major city. There's just a peace that comes with country life. There's something calming about looking out at wide-open spaces and trees as far as you can see. The country is perfect for letting your mind drift to a creative place."
This summer, Lambert and her husband of four years, 38, plan to bond over outdoor activities, including gardening — the Voice coach's passion. "I now have my own garden, but Blake is really the gardener. This year, we're planting tomatoes and strawberries to make jam. I have a little downtime this summer, so I'm looking forward to this task," the "Mama's Broken Heart" singer hinted.
Lambert also plans to continue work with her MuttNation charity, which raised more than $60,000 last year for shelter pets in need. "What I like about it is that I have control, my mom and I. It's a very small board," Lambert told Rolling Stone Country of MuttNation. "It's five girls and we have control over where every dime goes. We know every dollar, how it's spent . . . . We bought a beagle a wheelchair a couple of years ago whose back legs didn't work. We get to pick wherever it goes."
Providing a voice for her four-legged friends is cathartic for the singer. "They don't know who Miranda Lambert is or care," she says. "They just love me because I'm their mom."
