Hello sweet friends!
In just a matter of 2 weeks, my life has changed.... and for the better I'll say first :) I've been so busy and not able to post as often as I'd like because last week I found out my Parents are going to be moving up to NY again. They did the "flying south" to retire thing almost 23 years ago this summer. And after years of traveling up north to us for special occasions and trips down the see them, they will now be living 2 minutes from me again. I could NOT be happier!
So.... I've been running around scouting out places for them and I found this wonderful 100+ year old house that has a fabulous backyard and just looks like it was transported right out of a time warp. I will be sharing pictures of the transformations to come! They are going to be renters for the first time in their lives ( they are "finished" doing anything complicated according to them lol ) and luckily for them ( and me lol ) the sweet Landlord has said we can do anything we want to the home and the yard. I see a beautiful garden for my Mother and peace and quiet for my Dad. And for me? Beautiful old rooms with fat moldings, an old fashioned looking kitchen with a big window over the sink, and all new rooms to decorate. Yippee!! The doors are all original and just ooze charm! I'll be keeping you all updated with before and afters :) But I might be slow to post for a few weeks, so bare with me :)
I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July and are enjoying gorgeous summer days!! The mosaic above is my inspiration for Mom and Dads new abode which I've been given the honor to decorate :) The pics are from Better Homes and Gardens, ( you can click on the picture to see it large ) so pretty! Plus perfect timing for some red, white and blue :)
Thank you so much for being such incredible friends and followers, I so appreciate all of you!! I'll be back as soon as I can and in the meantime, I wish you love and blessings always!!
With gratitude and friendship,
