I am moving! Not too far but into another home. It's a long story I will try to condense.
My granddaughter Tiffany is raising her sister's three little precious girls. Long story that I won't go into. Her home is close to me but it only has two bedrooms and as the girls grow, they have definitely outgrown that house.
So, I took Tiffany out to look at this house that was for sale. She didn't like it at all - however, I fell in love with the possibilities of it.
So, I'm buying this house which is only about a mile away and Tiffany and the girls are moving into my home. I could never sell this house because of all of the memories here, but with Tiffany here - it'll be OK.
Now, I am taking on a new home at the age of 71. Crazy, eh? But I am looking forward to the prospect of getting to completely redecorate it and it will really keep me busy for the next year.
Now, on to the new house. By the way, the outside color on the first photo will definitely be changed in the Spring. The house was owned by an older couple and everything in the house is pink and aqua.
So, there will be lots of changes in the months to come. The good thing is I'm using the same contractor I used on my house, so I don't have a lot of decisions to make. I'm using alot of the same colors, etc.
The living and dining room have beautiful new hardwood floors. Really pretty windows also.
The kitchen has been redone with all new granite, backsplash and appliances. However, I can not handle the curly trim on the cabinets so we are trying to figure out how to make them go away!
This is the den. (Notice the pale pink walls) It has gorgeous original wood peg floors. Love them.
Would you believe another pink bathroom? I just got rid of pink in my bathroom. LOL This will be completely gutted and start all over.
The back yard is really pretty and has been professionally landscaped.
And yea!! It has a screened in back porch. It's not as pretty as the one I just did but will be when I get finished with it.
This is going to be my work room. As much as I don't like the pinkish ceramic tile, I think I'm going to leave it. It will be very practical to paint and sew on. There is so much storage in this home.
So, I will be closing on this new house in the next week or so and will start the redo. There are no window treatments in any room but the work room, so I will have lots of sewing to do.
The amazing thing is that I have no deadline to get the new house ready to live in. Tiffany has her house and so when I am ready she will move into this one. An extra plus is that the contractor wants to buy her home. So, it has just gone so smoothly that I am amazed. I know that this move is in God's and John's plans because every move has just be so smooth and quick that there were no roadblocks of any kind along the way.
So, am I crazy or what?
