The unpacking and decorating continues...

We have been in our home for two weeks as of today.  Yes, you can sit on the couch now, heck you can even take a nap on the couch!  I have a good dent in the packing boxes but still have quite a way to go before we are rid of them. : )

Below is a picture from the living room.  I just love this old wing chair.  I found it and the mate at a thrift store in Alexandria, VA.  My girlfriend, Dale, really wanted one.  So me made a deal.  We would buy the pair for $60.00 and each take a chair.  When one of us passes our husbands know that the mates then have to be brought back together to the living friends home.  I know, I know kinda morbid, but my girlfriend is 4 years older than me!
The flower arrangement was made by a wonderful friend who is so talented, thank you Wendy. : )


Oops...please ignore the stack of pictures.

Also, I found these pictures taken in June while we still lived in AZ.  I had just returned from a shopping trip in Nogales, Mexico. (That's my wonderful Mexican shopping bag.)  Shih Tzu's are the nosiest little doggies.  Chui and Oliver were quite interested in my bag....

I'm linking up to Sue's fun meme, Rednesday.  Check out her blog, It's A Very Cherry World, and all the wonderful showings of red. : )

I'll be back soon with more postings, the boxes are still calling my name!

Hi Ann
I read a few of your posts to try to fill myself with some info about you. I am gathering that you just moved into a new home?
I see you are also a lover of Shih Tzu's! They are the greatest dogs! I have a black and white one.
He is the king of the house!

Hi Ann,
Thanks for stopping by. I should think that with the move you've just made you you wouldn't have time for even one blog much less all the 'sites' I I do appreciate you sharing your journey along the way. I recall first seeing your blog when you posted pics of your beautiful home in AZ.
I will confess to staying up until 2 a.m. or later updating and catching up on what others have to share. I don't have to update all of my sites everyday, some are just email locations, so it's pretty easy to handle. For me it's more about "Brand" development for my side business with the jewelry. Plus I can do all of it from the computer on my couch or in bed. Gotta love a laptop!
Best wishes on your new home. It's looks beautiful, too.
Question for you and not to sound 'morbid' but what happens if both you and your friend'go' together. Do you have a plan "B" for the chairs?? ;-)
Thanks for sharing with us.
