New House!


Well, things are crazy here, as always!  The good news?  ALL PAINTING IS DONE!  Phew!  :)  Would you like a little preview?  Sure why not.

I did a ton of packing over the Christmas weekend.

Then Sunday (yes, the day after Christmas) we began the daunting task of moving.  This is the outside of our new house… (I call it our Gingerbread House)  :D

This is the family room… well… most of it.  There is still a part that isn’t in the picture.

The kitchen….

walk in pantry…

Dining Room…

Stairs … (picture taken from the living room – which hasn’t been photographed)

Master Bathroom (double sinks/counter/cabinets not pictured) and walk in closet…

View from our girl’s bedroom window…

And, yes.  I said there was painting happening.  First I painted our girl’s room…

And then my friend helped me paint my office today… I LOVE IT!

Grey and Turquoise.  What’s not to love?  :)

I will share more pictures as the unpacking progresses and the rooms are all put together.  Right now it’s total chaos.

I did see that I was in Big Cartel’s Top 10 stores today!  Woot!

So, that’s it!  Christmas was awesome!  My break from sewing was totally awesome!  And life is rocking my world, because it’s so awesome!  :)

How are you doing?  I haven’t heard from you all in a while.  Let me know what’s new with you and how your Christmas was!

  10. Love the paint colors! My studio is painted khaki and orange, I love two-tone rooms. I’m dying to do something with turquoise and grey or chocolate brown. Your dining room is the same color as our library. I love it, beautiful “gingerbread” house.

    I had a wonderful Christmas! And since I’m replying to this on New Year’s Day, I’ve had a wonderful New Year’s, too! But we were supposed to go to Belize and had to cancel our trip, my town got 30″ of snow the day before we were flying!! Shut down NJ for quite a while. But we dug out and went to Philly instead. Such is life. ;)

  11. What a great Christmas gift! I think you might live in my friend’s neighborhood, it looks so familiar!
