This week’s happenings have been a whole lot of packing and moving.
I am sure you are not surprised!
Yesterday was our Anniversary.
I was surprised with a beautiful bouquet of flowers
that my hubby managed to sneak in without my knowledge
and surprised me with them when I walked into the kitchen early in the morning.
I posted it on Instagram/Housepitality Designs
We are two crazy people trying to move our things into the rental house
that going forward I shall call the Berry Patch House.
The above photo is the first photo you have seen of the Berry Patch House.
The kitchen has orange/coppery color accents tiles
so I brought my vintage copper tea kettle to the house to see how it would
blend in and it does blend nicely, so copper will be prevalent in the kitchen.
A kitchen I would classify as gourmet with items such a warming drawer (yes!)
and two full size sinks and two separate food prepping areas.
The original homeowners were chefs, so they needed their own prep stations.
There is also a full size kitchen in the lower level of the house.
My hubby is using our trusty Honda Odyssey that has 275,000 miles on it
to truck over (or van over) boxes etc to the Berry Patch house.
The professional movers (I think my hubby and I have become professional too)
will move the large/heavy pieces of furniture in a couple of weeks.
I have been giving away lots of things.
I gave the media room sofa and ottoman to my son.
It fit very nicely in his new home.
The rug is staying with the house per the buyers request
and the red 50’s high top table and stools in the kitchenette have been spoken for too.
Ahhh . . . my sunroom furniture . . .
I will not have room for it in the “new house” . . .
definitely have room for it in the Berry Patch house, as it is 5,000 square feet;
however, thought it best to let it go now.
So it will be gifted to my Sweetie’s mother so they can enjoy it.
My sweetie has known this furniture since the day she was a couple weeks old,
when she first came to my house.
Leaving this house with so many memories is truly bittersweet
and I think it is the same for my Sweetie too;
however, she is fully involved in the new house.
She is already looking forward to having a great window seat in her room.
Her bedroom will have its own bath as each bedroom will.
I am on the fence about selling the guest room furniture.
My sister really wants it, but they do not have a vehicle large enough
to travel up from Florida to get it.
I am a bit far behind on packing. But it will all get done.
We are meeting with our builder today on our final plans
and I will present a copy of our plan hopefully next week.
In the meantime, in the words and advice of my friend Mary
I shall KEEP CALM AND PACK ON!!!
And, will make sure that I have a great supply of Kleenex on hand too!
Have a most beautiful day everyone!
