We’re on the threshold of our big move south. So, I won’t be posting here on the blog until September. Here’s wishing you a wonderful summer!
Now that our old house has sold, we’re busy with non-stop sorting, ridding and packing. Whew! I can’t believe we’ve amassed so much stuff. My advice is to get your home in order before a major move.
I’ve had lots of questions about where we’re going and about our next place. My husband and I are heading south. And this is a peek at our destination- a restored farm house c. 1870.

As my husband and I search for a new old home I realize how much the process resembles a funnel. The fullest part of the funnel holds our dream- all the things that we feel we can’t live without and the affordable price tag.
Then we start looking at places online and visiting properties. The dream gets squeezed and those things that we deemed important are being discarded in order to fit the narrowest part of the funnel called reality.
I found this old blueprint while sifting through paperwork. It’s from my very first commercial design job. I was hired to update an eat-in deli with new flooring, tile, furniture, etc. I didn’t sleep well for weeks working on this project. How did it turn out? Not too bad. The owners were happy and I got paid. :)
