Farmhouse Dining Room Updates & Plans

We've lived in our Connecticut farmhouse for four weeks now and, honestly, I feel like I have gotten very little accomplished.

I spent the month before we moved planning and planning and then when we got to the actual house, the color choices just seemed all wrong. Has that happened to you?

How to Create a Rustic Autumn Display

Hey everyone! The unpacking and cleaning is going well here at the new house. My patience is a little lacking because, as typical, I want things done like yesterday.

Actually, I'm kind of having like a I'm dying to paint because then the rooms will really start to come together coupled with a damn I really don't want to paint because it's such a chore and I need to do all the trim. I'm sure you've all felt that way.

My goal for earlier this week was to at least clear a path in the dining room so every four steps we didn't need to move a box to create a path. I mostly succeeded. There are still a couple of random boxes in a corner, but it no longer is the command station of moving that is was a week ago.

Since I got the room looking halfway civilized, I decided to decorate the table for fall.

The Selling of Number Fifty-Three

Well that was a longer blogging break than I had intended. Despite my attempts as steadily blogging over the last year or so, life and responsibility has gotten in the way. It's not a bad thing, just the reality of it. Then, there was that chunk of time when I had literally no time to share projects even if I had the projects to share.

This is why: I sold my house. My love, my boys and (soon to join us, Figgy) packed up last week and moved to Connecticut. Selling and moving to a less congested area (re: not being able to actually see my neighbor open his fridge and get a snack while I'm sitting on my very own couch) has been something I have wanted to do for a good decade. Once my divorce was final this was my cue to fully get out of a place that never made me happy and start over. And, it happened fast. The house was listed for more than I was comfortable with and I received two offers in two weeks. Glad I listed high.
