they built this house when bob was 11. we've all grown up in this house, including me. bub is so excited because he will get his dad's room. it's a great house, not to mention 3 times the size of our current home. we have big plans for it. we can't wait to build our own family memories and i can't wait to decorate it and make it our own.
creamy yellow exterior, white trim, midnight blue accents and lots of white rose bushes. (all the tropical plants are comin' out...)
so, the explanation...
there was an old garage on the property in which they are building and i always said to those who asked about the progress, "when that garage comes down, you know something is happening". well the garage is down and that means progress.
progress, no matter how small, is good, very good. i'm actually ok with the slow progress because i'm going to really miss my house. we've lived here for 13 years and i've grown to love it. i'll miss the front yard parties, the back yard that is always under going change and the inside of the house that is forever being updated. i'll miss the memories of the neighborhood (we have a great neighborhood) and i'll cherish all the memories.
now that i've relived that, let's get to the rest of my fabulous treasures that the little princess and i found yesterday.
i found these baskets (the jars were from a previous find)
the fabric was from dianne's yard sale. i got it to re-upholster the leather chair that currently resides in my living room. it will get a make over when we move to go with the planned family room decor.
the books are also from dianne's. higdon camp from blackbird designs and an old jan patek book 'twixt garden gates'.
so there you have it. the weekends around near are never without some fun.
