The Hickory Cottage Sunroom Reveal (for now)

Hello Dear Readers!

I have been up to my eyeballs in boxes and

packing paper (still) and trying my best to work

with one room at a time; however, it has

been a bit difficult as there are still

many boxes that need to be unpacked.

I worked on the sunroom.

You could not see the floor as it was truly

covered with furniture, boxes, and orphaned

accessories. However, I got through it!

Hickory Cottage Update of Kitchen, Sunroom and Lighting

Hello Dear Readers!

I have a bit of an update for you.

I wish I had updates of the

exterior of the house; however,

it’s been raining so much

that we have not been able

to pour any concrete for the driveway;

thus also not being able

to get started on the landscaping.

So today I shall show you the

Hickory Cottage Update of Kitchen,

Sunroom and Lighting.

Blue and White and Boxwood

Last week we traveled to Florida to attend our Class Reunion.

On the way down we stopped at one of our fav restaurants on our route,  

to have lunch.

A bonus of this restaurant/inn is that it has a beautiful gift shop too!

So usually after I order my meal, I head to the gift shop!

It was there that I found a beautiful lamp that I could not leave behind.

I am not sure what spoke to me first . . . the design with birds

or the pretty finial. I just wish they had a pair.

When we returned from Florida and I set up the lamp in the Great Room,

of course it lead to the ripple or domino effect,

which truthfully, I enjoy!

The domino effect also led to creating new vignettes of:

The Re-Designed Sunroom

Hello Dear Readers!

Today I want to show you the re-designed sunroom at the Berry Patch House.

Re-designed? Yes . . . When the new furniture for the Great Room arrived,

we had to move the furniture that was in that room to the sunroom.

That meant a whole lot of shuffling going on!

So come on and see . . . THE RE-DESIGNED SUNROOM.

The Sunroom Reveal at the Berry Patch House

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s been a while since I promised a peek of the sunroom at the Berry Patch House.

When we were moving in, all things that were in the category of

“I do not know where I am going to put this” …. went into the sunroom.

This room is a collection of things that do not have it’s “own home,” however,

it will different once we move into the “right-sized” house.

Please come in and see the Sunroom Reveal at the Berry Patch House.

This Week’s Happenings

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.

Patriotic Fridays with Tree Classics

Yesterday, I gave you a sneak peek of what I have been working on this week.

It’s a Patriotic themed white Christmas tree.

I am partnering with Tree Classics to bring you the Patriotic Fridays with Tree Classics Blog Hop.

This Blog Hop features a white Christmas tree that we have decorated

in a patriotic theme, inspired by the bravery of our beloved soldiers.

Soldiers who fought, and those making the ultimate sacrifice,

to defend and fight to preserve our precious freedoms

that we hold dear in this great Country of ours.
