My new stuff

I thought I'd share the new things that I added in the house over the past couple of weeks.  I got the island cabinet set, and the gas cook top hooked up.
I ordered and installed the light fixture over the cook top and the counter stools. 

They turned out to be a little redder than they appeared, but I still love them.  They are very well made, comfortable, heavy and look really expensive, so I'm very pleased with my purchase.

I got the bakers rack moved in and decorated for now, I'm sure I will be changing it, but it's good for now.

So, I am continuing to get things done. I'm now starting to sell items that I will not be utilizing and hopefully by mid to the end of February I won't have storage, that is my goal!  We'll see how that goes.  I'll keep you posted.  This downsizing thing is hard, in case anyone wants to know.  By the time this is over, I'll be an expert, so contact me... LOL.

Have a wonderful evening and a happy Sunday.

Ice Ice Baby

Got up this morning to a solid sheet of ice.  Our street in front of the house looked like an ice skating rink.  We lucked out though, just over from us are still under a ice storm warning, but it sure is cold.

How's the weather where you are?  I hope everyone is warm and safe.

If it's not one thing then it's another...

Last week I was very excited because I was getting more and more settled. Box after box was emptied and hauled to the recycle bin.  I was beginning to have a little more free time to get on my computer that I had been deprived from for six months. I had to update everything and I renewed my Norton virus software.  I thought life was good.   I actually dug my camera out of the bottom of my bag and started taking a few pictures here and there.  I found the kitchen island light fixture of my dreams and got it ordered.  I found the bar stools that I really liked and got them ordered.  All of which arrived and was very pleased with my selections.  Then BAM!!  my computer went crazy, I scanned it, restarted it, and nothing helped.  I had to take it to the doctor and it was there for six days:/.  I finally got it hooked back up last night and got my email box cleaned out!!  So, I am almost afraid to say things are calming down again, so I won't. 

I will just say, it's been so cold here for the past week that I bought this little bouquet from the clearance bin at the grocery store yesterday to cheer me up!  We're suppose to get one to two inches of snow tomorrow morning and I'm suppose to leave this weekend for Atlanta to go to Apparel Mart for the store, so I guess we'll be playing it by ear.

I've also been trying to make a new header and that's not working too well either, so please ignore it.  I'll have to redo it later :D

Hope you all have had a better week than me,

I have been in the new house four weeks tomorrow, but I'm still getting settled in.  It's very time consuming due to the fact that I moved out of a 3400 sq. ft. house into a 1700 sq. ft. house.  When we moved out of the old house it was 105 degrees and everything had to go.  As most of you know my stuff was in storage for almost six months until the new house was built.  We started moving in December 13, just before the holidays!  The hard part of this move in is that everything cannot come in, so we have to bring every box to the house, open unpack choose what can be used and trust me it MUST be functional to come in.  Space is high dollar real estate and if it's not going to be utilized, then it's outta here!, thus time consuming.  I cannot tell you how many times I've decorated an area and then find something I like more.  I thought I'd share a few pictures so you can see my progress.  I've got a long way to go, but I've come a long way baby.  I've still got many more boxes to go through before I'll be finished, but it's really worth weeding out and getting rid of nonfunctional items.  The whole idea of this move was to downsize, right?  :/

Here is the front of my new little house.
My front door when I first arrived.
My foyer way back then...
Finally a new home for my painting from Ricki Jill from Art @ can find her mini paintings here. It makes me so happy...
Great room during the holidays.
My newly installed kitchen island with my gas cook top,  love it!
I hung my stained glass piece from when I had The Spicy Lemon Cafe several years ago...
The other side of the kitchen.
Well, it's a start.  Next pictures I'm sure will be different. A lot is actually already changed, lol.
Hope you are all having a great week.  I've been trying to carve out a little time to get back to my blog and visit you guys.  I've been reading a lot, but I apologize for not commenting to all.  I hope to be back to more blogging over the next few weeks.  I still work three days a week and I still have to find a few things for the house.  Bar stools, light fixture for the kitchen island and several other things.  Hoping to go shopping tomorrow.  Plus, I've got to work on a new header for this little blog of mine! 
Have a fabulous day, I'm so excited to be getting back a little bit....
