Some progress, Lots of MESSES!


Grab a chair and a cup of tea!  Our son, Dan from MD made and brought this beautiful oak bookcase to us!  I love it!


Picture got hung over the fireplace.


The den with Bob's desk.  Messy yet.  TV goes in the bottom right hand corner.


Antique phone and sewing machine hung between garage door and coat closet door.




The rug is blue.  That is our S&H green stamp coffee table that we got years and years ago!  Sentimental.  The rug is blue.


This is for my friend Pat to see!  It looks like two toned blue but the pile needs to be swept all one way and it is one color blue.  I like it.


Bakers rack will hold plants and tea pots.  It will be minus the tools left on it and the junk in front!


Dan also made this shelf to set the TV on to watch from theM table while we eat or play Pandora music while I work in the kitchen.  Dog pen will probably not stay there but right now it is Coco's place of security when we go away.  Not sure where the plant and antique butter churn will go.


More antiques go on the shelf above the piano that Dan made plus one on the other side of the doorway in kitchen area.  My antique Zither will either go on the wall beside the piano or on the other side of the sliding glass doors.  


This is the quilt rack that Dan made for me some time ago.  It is hung in the hall way and I have quilts hung on it now.


A picture of Diana's Sweet Shop from Pt. Huron, MI hung in the
guest bathroom.


Master bedroom.  Lots more to do in here!


This will be my sewing and craft space with shelves above and a feminine desk beside it for my computer.  It is in the master bedroom.


I have a large master bedroom closet.  My clothes will go on one side and around the corner.  There is a little place back in there that holds a white chest of drawers with doilies, etc.   On the right hand side will be craft supplies on the first upper shelf and I think plastic drawer containers for material along that right hand wall.  Dan put up other shelves for us in there for storage also.  This gives you an idea of what we have been up to.  We appreciate our kids help so much and especially Dan who came for a few days from MD to help us move, make so many things for us including the beautiful bookcase and help get things organized.   We have great kids and will continue to work away at our senior citizen pace!  Thanks for visiting!

You've really been busy. It must feel so good to be getting settled in.
Good luck in the New Year and the new "digs". Looks like 2017 is gonna be a great year!

I love it! What a great closet to store all of your crafty stuff. The house looks like it will be perfect for you. Just what I want too. Our house is way too big now. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress.
Blessings,

You have made good progress. Moving in takes a lot of work but in the end it's so worth it. I can see that it's going to be lovely when you are all set up. Happy 2017!

You've already done so much to make your house into your home but the job's not finished yet!!! I love the oak bookcase that your son made. It is gorgeous. Your walk-in closet is so practical too. Good luck with all the organizing.

This is wonderful. I am so happy for you. The rug sounds pretty and the hutch is beautiful! Your son did a nice job. *smile* I hope your new house continues to feel like a home for both of you. Thank you for making the time to share with us the progress of your moving in. *smile* Remember to pray always. Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!

So happy you are moved in. It will take time to get things JUST RIGHT! You will change your mind a lot I bet.

So happy for you and your hubs in your forever home.
Have a great weekend.

Looks like you are making great progress. Moving has got to be harder during the winter season than any other time of the year. I love your rug . . . so pretty.
S&H green stamps . . . I haven't heard of them in so very many years. Do any stores still give them out?
Just a little note. I mentioned you in my post and sent a link to your blog. So, you might have a few new friends drop by.
Happy Moving!
Connie :)

Its really coming together, Nancy. What a cosy home it will be!
Gently does it, though. I know how draining those 'messy' times can be when moving house. You have done loads!

Henny Penny said...

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I accidentally deleted all my blog list and have little by little added the names back, from memory. I know there are still some missing. I've missed you and your family and Coco. Your new home is going to be just beautiful. Moving is such a job, but putting everything in place in a brand new home is so exciting. I 'll be back to visit. Henny
