A New Adventure

.I can't even believe I am writing this..........but we are moving! Yup! Our house went up for sale on Friday and the rush has began! My heavens you too! We have been in Texas less than a year!!
We moved in December 23, 2011. I am cleaning like crazy!!! I am ok with this move believe it or not. I know the trials ahead of me, but it's a new adventure! We are moving near Marissa, IL. It is very close to St. Louis, Mo.
Any bloggers from that area??? Let me know....I need my blogger friends to encourage me!!!!

Well, this got me thinking....I never shared alot of this house. So in the next few weeks I will be sharing a few rooms here and there!
By the way, my camera broke so I am using my old one.....when it rains at the zoo, it is always a hurricane!

Today I am sharing our bedroom. Chloe had to be in the picture!
A little info...I had my bed table and bought the other one at Goodwill. A perfect match! I painted them white and bought lamps at Penny's.

This is the other side. I was trying to create a sitting room.
The bench is all metal and would look pretty on a porch. I need to make new pillows for it. I bought it from a friend. The rocker I bought years ago for $5.00! I had it reupholstered.

This is looking out the window. A nice view!

The realtor told me to take off the Christmas decorations off my tapestry! LOL  So I did!
This was too much for me...I am still laughing!!!! I guess it tells me something about my decorating!

This is looking out towards the pool! A cedar chest that needs to be refinished.

This armoire holds our TV. It sits at the end of the bed. You can also see my free bench (white) that needs to be recovered. The realtor told me to put it in the garage! The hydrangea bench and angel cabinet I bought at a yard sale.

See the dried roses in the pitcher? Yup! The realtor told me to get rid of them!!!! LOL
I bought all of this at Goodwill. I bought the table runner at Tuesday Morning.

I hope you liked the little tour of our bedroom. I took at little break to share our news!  I will be thinking of all of you as I finish cleaning today. We are showing the house again tomorrow.

Just think in a few months I can share another bedroom with you! Looking forward to that!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Blessings My Friend,


  1. Dear One,
    God bless you each and every day. I pray all goes super well with this move, selling of house and taking care of all the details.

    Life is an adventure and you certainly know about this.

    I remember the day when i just grieved each move we made. It got easier as I went. Thank the good Lord.

    Will be stopping in to see how you're doing.

    God bless,

  2. Good luck on the pack and purging the house for sale. That's a ton of work. Hugs, Marty

  3. You have a very pretty bedroom. I remember what it was like selling a home and moving. Alot of stress, so take it easy and try to relax when you can.

  4. My goodness! It seems you've just settled in. Good luck with your move and selling your home.

  5. Deanna,
    Thank you so much for your sweet blessings. I am confident that God has a wonderful plan for us. We have been through alot in Texas but I do believe we have grown closer to God. I am hoping you will stop by to see how it is going.
    Blessings to you, my friend,

  6. Thank you, Marty!
    We are fortunate that our relocation package takes care of packing and moving our belongings.
    I am not sure I could do it otherwise!

  7. Willow, I may need you to remind me to rest!LOL Thank you for stopping by!
