I hardly know where to even begin...so much is going on in my life! And it is All Good!
First of all I won a prize in the Great Christmas Giveaway at Angelina's Trinkets...lookie at this
The picture does not begin to do the set justice....it is beautiful.....Thank you so much!
I am in a Valentine swap and have been receiving cards and notes from my secret admirer (i had some explaining to do..to my husband). I got this in the mail, ain't' it so purdee?
Now....I knew when this year began that change was in the air! We got a wonderful new President, I wanted to change my weight,my body....my health... and I am!!! But I had no idea!!!! Have you ever had something big happen in your life, that you knew...that you could feel God's hand all around it? That you have no doubts at all...it is a rare and wonderful feeling! For the past 5 years we have been renting this old farmhouse we live in now. We loved the look of it, all the land and the fact that the rent was so reasonable. We hoped that we might buy it, if he ever wanted to sell it. I am glad we didn't....because we have learned that we do not want this much yard to take care of and while old farmhouses are charming in many ways...cold air coming in every crack is not so charming. We have learned that in a big way lately because this winter has been soooooo cold (for NC standards).
We had just started to look around some when we came across a sweet deal......we closed on our house last Wednesday. It is smaller but very well built and it needs curve appeal ( but we can do that), so needless to say I have been very busy. We are gonna be moved in by the first of March! Just this week I have cleaned carpet, power washed windows and packed and moved boxes. We are having a big yard sale next Saturday so we are preparing for that also...but I am so happy! Yes this does meaning the closing of my little shop.....and that is bittersweet...but I know I can do it again if I want to...but right now I just want to focus on my house and my family. I will still have my online business of course and I have some great local customers that would buy from me if I sold stuff from the truck of my car!
I will have lots of before and afters to show you in the coming months...I will give you a little teaser of my house and one of the first projects I want to tackle.
My Kitchen....Love the black hardware on the cabinets, hate the 80's blue. I am thinking a distressed barn red. the counter tops are white with gold flecks....I really want to put in solid wood counter tops. You really can't hurt it and I have seen lots of folks use it.
And I am bringing my white farmhouse sink with me! The ceiling fan will be replaced with a nice primitive fixture I have.
I gotta get busy so much to do...if you did not know it GOD IS GOOD....ALL THE TIME!!!
