Going Offline For a Bit & Show & Tell Friday


I thought that this week I would share what has been keeping me busy and why I'll be offline for a couple of weeks----we're moving. Just down the road a few miles, but still lots of work.

I'm really looking forward to the new house, which is almost 100yrs old, but has had a lot of updates to it---and still needs a few more--like repainting the kitchen! You'll see that a bit later. Here's a picture of front of the house.............

...and a side view of the house as you drive up the driveway. It's a 4 bedroom, 2 bath with a very large sewing room in the finished basement, which I'm really looking forward to, so I can spread and out and create!


Follow this link to my Webshots album and you can see some inside shots as well. So I'm of to do a bit of moving and will be back about the first week of November or as soon as they get our internet hooked up at the new place. Do you think I'll get more done without internet? We'll see!

Don't forget to check out the other Show & Tell Fridays over at Kelli's Place .

Well, that is a shame--can't you go to the library and do internet stuff or are you out in the boonies!! I didn't look to see where you live! The house does not look that old--I will have to look at your webshot page ;-)

So very happy and thrilled for you. It is always so exciting to be moving into a new home.

I hope you'll take a few minutes to read my great news on my blog today before you take your break :o)

What??? No pix or mention of the buffalo? It sounds like a wonderful place! Don't forget to post pix of your sewing room and no fair cleaning it up first!

I know that no matter how close-by your moving that any move is a lot of work.

Your new place looks really neat. I love the wood! And nice size place too. I'd love to live in a place with a basement again. Basements are great. So cool that you'll have a sewing-room!

What a wonderful show and tell! Thanks for sharing.

Remember during all the physical part to take breaks and drink water! My father in law helped my husband and I with our last move and we ended up having to take him to the hospital because he needed water! Yikes, well, he had some other issues that came up to get him there, but he was scolded for dehydration.

We probably went through an entire case of Vitamin water during our last move, and I'm talking the Costco/Sam's Club size!

Praying all goes well.

Oh I love house tours!!!

I came here to say thank you for posting and giving us permission to use those precious Vintage Halloween cards! I've used them before and I give you credit, at the bottom of my entries.

But I thought today that I'd say thank you personally, and leave you a link to my today's entry. :-)

Happy moving! Happy Halloween!

Cathy ~ your home is beautiful! I love the glass front bookcases by the fireplace, and the wood in the kitchen, and the basement workroom, and the age of the home....

Dear Cathy, Are you all moved in yet? I bet you're hidden away in that new sewing/crafting room and forgotten all about us. Have a good weekend. Susan
