Well, "Hello Y'all!"
We sure have been busy bees rebuilding our "nest" and we actually managed to have it looking like home in only 2 1/2 weeks after our arrival. And we survived the ordeal of packing up a 22 ft. box truck, a 16 ft. van and my car, to the max, with the contents of our house and my two, little businesses. The help of eight, wonderful, very special people (two of whom came from 1 1/2 hours away) was what made it all happen and we thank them all from the bottom of our hearts!
It was early morning when our "lead driver" arrived to lead us on our, long, journey south.
Here we are getting really close to our destination.
Gucci guarding the "little" truck!
After a 13 1/2 hour drive we arrived, here, at our new little home. Surrounded by a forest of tall oak, elm and pine trees and tons of blooming azaleas it was a sight that made me take a deep breath and cry!
:( pics taken after their blooms were done.
"Gucci" sitting guard.
and laying watch!
An old, cobalt crock with some shade loving impatience...we have more of that here than sun!
and in my little wheel barrow...can't wait to get the three big ones that we left behind :(
A collection of stoneware jugs... including a favorite one from the street where my great grandmother lived.
Starting moonflower's...hope they flourish!
Deep red mandevilla sit on an old, cast iron, family chair.
Now, peek inside...this was our entry when we first opened the door.
Now, it feels like home with some of our favorite things.
A sentimental vignette in it's new home.
Hiding the temperature control was a no brainer.
Our shabby painted ladder that used to hang on the wall.
My precious, vintage mirror.
A gold venetian, vintage tray
"Honeyman" hung this, sweet, little chandy.
Even "Grandma's" vintage, kitten playing found a new place to play!
Well, this was my first post since we moved in and I told you, back in April, I'd have a lot of things to post about. So, keep watch, I'll be posting lots more of each room of our sweet, little cape in the south!
Love, Hugs and Kisses,
