I'm exhausted, but in a good way...

I worked all weekend on the house, emptying boxes and breaking them down, putting things where they belong, reorganising my spare bedroom/craft room (still need to hang stuff on the walls in there), cleaning out closets from stuff that was just "stuffed" in there, and fixing the garage so that I can park AND walk in there. Nice idea...

I even found my dining room table while I was at it.

I should iron the tablecloth (but I probably won't).  I did buy an iron and ironing board this weekend but I'm not ready to attempt ironing the tablecloth just yet.

Next on my agenda is to get pictures and stuff on the wall. I really need help in that area because I am seriously challenged in decorating. I want a sofa painting (or something) without spending a fortune and I need something over the bed, too. I have a ton of family photos that will go on one wall in the dining room. I'm not sure that's the best idea for them but it's the only idea I have.

Next weekend... maybe something will hit me between now and then. We shall see.

Hope you all have a fabulous week!

Oh Oh! How about some old windows hung on the wall? They look great and if you wish, you can put photos in the windows by attaching the clear photo corners put on backwards so they stick to the glass as seen at Cottage Instincts here: I mean, how cute is that and easy and cheap??? I keep seeing windows on trash day stacked by the trash can to be thrown away and there is a place here that will sell you all you want in any size you want for $5 each! Looking good!

Getting settled is a good thing. The rest of the decorating will come when the mood hits. Home Goods is a great place for good finds. Just try to relax some! Hugs.

What a relief to be getting settled in! I saw the pics of Anna's baptism and you guys look great! I'm so glad that you had a good move. It seems so cheerful in your new place!
