Now to less stressful stuff....please! My mom brought over the current issue of Southern Living Magazine with a yellow sticky on it that said "The Land that Moved Us" attached to an article inside the magazine. The article she was referring to was "The house that moved them." A wonderful story of a family that fell in love with a old abandon house and moved the house to land they owned. If you have a chance to read their story it is wonderful. They have 11 photo's online, but let me share 3 with you.....
I love the colors they used in the family room!
This is their kitchen and through the door leads you to this room...
(when I show you our photo's you'll see why these are so inspirational)
I love the built in's and the use of the bench...great storage ideas!
It is a fun article to read if you have the time!
So, shall we move on to "The land that moved us?" It was the land that caught our eye first and fell in love with. Luckily the current owners re-wired, up dated the plumbing, roof, and siding.
We do have a long to do list when we move in. Again, I'll share that later...once we figure out which project gets tackled first!
Well start outside...since it is our favorite part of the property...
Sorry, not good quality...from the Real Estate web site.
This is looking at the garage. We are zoned that we could have 2 horses,
2 cows or one of each. The kids think that means we should, we don't think so!
Maybe a pot belly pig would be fun?
Here is the house. Imagine if you will, black shutters, they are leaving the original wooden front door (which we want to restain and put back on), new columns on the front porch, a side porch and screen in porch under the addition, and new landscaping....just a small to do list!! LOL!
The only photo's I have of the inside are from the Real Estate agency.
We hope to add an island and the kitchen table will go in the den....
(something like the inspiration photo above)
The den sits between the family room and the kitchen.
This is one of the two full baths...
The last two photo's are of the Master Bedroom. I did finally decided on a color scheme and bedding.
Going to go with the set from JC Penney's...Greens, purples and a touch of red!
Of course I have other ideas for paint (yes Deb, I said paint) and wainscoting, but if I share that now I just might push Tony over the edge!
So there you have it! We are getting packed, selling furniture, planning and dreaming! Thank you for stopping by and sharing in our excitement with us!!
6 Weeks and counting!!
