MIA, but Good News to Share

Good Morning Ladies.  Let me first of all apologize and say that I am sorry for not posting much lately.  This past week has been such a busy week.  I spent alot of time praying!!  Of course all of the news that I am about to share is absolutely wonderful news for not only me, but quite a few people.  So, are you ready to hear the exciting news?

My parents were FINALLY able to sell their condo after 3 years on the market.  Yep, you heard me correctly…..it is SOLD!!

They sold it on Friday of last week, came into town on Saturday and just left yesterday.  There is even more exciting news to share and that news is that they found a home just 5 houses down from me.  It is a beautiful home, big enough for them and the exciting news is that it has a basement.  I know…. not everyone would get excited about a basement, but my Mom told me that I could bring stuff down to their home and store it in the basement so our house wasn’t so cluttered.  I am so excited about that!!!!  To have a non-cluttered home will just be amazing!  It will seem bigger, lots bigger (lol).  So, would you like to see their new home?  Here it is ladies……


My Mom is going to have me re-finish her kitchen cabinets.  She wants me to paint them Olde Brick Red by Olde Century.  I am sure it will look amazing!  We were both on the internet drooling over light fixtures last night.  She wants things to look real prim so I am pretty sure that she is going to go with punched tin lighting.  Do you all ever check out the lighting fixtures on Irvin’s Country Tinware?  Well, let me tell you that they have some beautiful tin lighting fixtures!!  Check out the site by clicking on the shop name up above.  I am sure you won’t leave being disappointed.  If you are like me then you will leave just wishing you had more money to decorate your home with those beautiful light fixtures.  Enjoy looking!!!!

It is suppose to be in the high 60’s today which is a SUPER NICE CHANGE from the 40’s so I am going to plan on trying to get outside and do some sanding.  I have some signs that I need to get made plus a couple game boards too.  Yep, I need to take advantage of this warmer weather while I can.  Hope you all are doing well.  My little man is calling for me so I better run for now.  Hope you all have a blessed day!

I am so happy for all of you!! 5 houses down, what a dream!!
I can't wait to see how it looks when she is settled in.
Great choice with tin punched lights, as well as that company. We built our house 10 years ago and this is what I chose. It is probably the only thing I wouldn't change now ;)

Oh it is a 2 story.
We bought our empty nest home. All on 1 floor with
a huge basement. Half of which we had finished.
That is my husbands man cave/our media room
After living in a trilevel
for 20 years no more level houses for me.
That is great they finally
sold their condo after
3 years. Condos are hard to sell everywhere. And
they just keep building more.

Wow you mom's only 5 doors down from you. How nice. My mom lives a stones throw away from me and it works out perfectly for us. Wishing you many blessings and good times with your parents move. Can't wait to see the progress the two of you make in her new home.

WOW! I'm so happy for all of you! Answered prayer is wonderful, isn't it?!?
I also love Irvan's and browse there a lot. There are so many things I'd like to add to my home from there. I'd replace every light in the place if I could afford to! LOL!

What wonderful news! I wish I lived closer so I
could help with the move and the decorating, what fun that will be! Can't wait to see the pictures of the inside! Don't forget to take "before" pictures!
