The Three What's!

Haven't faced the three "WHAT'S" for 28 years!!!!!!
"What" to keep?
"What" to sell?
"What" to give away?

Everything is marked and today we will organize and spread out with more large tables!


 Friday and Saturday are the sale days, hope everything goes!

Hugs, Carolyn

Home sweet home ( past 28 years)

5309 Harwood Drive
Hurray, we've sold our home! Fortunately, on the market 16 days- sold to first couple who viewed it.  Then came home inspector, pest inspector, etc! etc! Oh, how things have changed during the past 28 years!!!  September 20th, a young family of 4 will be moving in.

Home Sweet Home ( temporary)

Home Sweet Home ( future) in February.
" The Vineyard Cottage"

Wonder if (door) trim can be removed with 18 years growth of six grandchildren recorded, with name, date and height- usually measured on Christmas eve.
How fortunate and blessed we have been, enjoying 28 years of family memories and much, much. More!

While all this has been going on, I was asked to be on a boutique committee  with the  "Holly and Ivy"  tour of historical homes decorated for Christmas, December 6th through the 8th. I have been making items to sell and will do more when we are settled in the apartment.


Kris, Lavender Quilts celebrated her 400th post! I commented on her blog congratulating her and won  Jan Pateks "Heart to Heart" pattern!
Sue, Simply Pieceful-quilting, had extra patterns in her closet and I chose " Tomorrow Scarlet".  
Thank you, Sue and Kris, I will have fun working on these two delightful projects this winter!

This is what we have been up to! Now we pack.
Moving September 1st by---
