FOR SALE! The Little Pink House

A little piece of heaven for sale.
It has felt like heaven to me to live here for 12 1/2 years. The process of selling your house and letting go is an emotional one. No surprise. My Realtor has done such a great job with the photos that I wanted to share them. Dennis Kellermeier with Keller Williams has the listing.
Dan & I are excited about having a home of our own. It just feels right. But selling this place is both good and bad and as one of my dear friends has told me just because you feel one emotion doesn't mean you don't feel the other. The job of packing up, sorting out is a big one as anyone knows who has done this. Having my business here adds another level of work and sort that seems huge. The Interior Design business has a lot of pieces and samples to it. Fabric, carpet, furniture catalogs, tile, design idea books, closed client files, current client files and note books, etc. Plus I am the kind of person who sees possibilities in so many cast off " things"! Oh boy...
So I have decided to blog about the process. Probably more for me than for you! If anyone out there has advise I stand ready to listen. At this point shoulder rubs from Dan & a glass of wine help!
So tell your friends the little pink house is for sale and they too could own a piece of heaven!

New Product @ Williamston

We just added a BUNCH of (new) OLD product to our antique booth at the mall in Williamston. Antique collecting/shopping is still such a popular activity. This is a great antique mall with a huge variety to choose from. January is always a fun time to rethink your decorating. All of the sparkle of Christmas is gone and you have the option of putting things back a different way leaving opportunities for change, something new and different. Color this time of year is also a crucial part of decorating. Add a splash of color with a painted table, a blanket or quilt as a throw, painted metal tole tray as art on the wall or as a vanity tray or bar. Try a whimsical collectible such as paint by number pictures to start a great conversation!
OK you've got the idea, now go have fun!
