~Welcome to Our New Home~

Welcome to our new home that Gary and I have fondly named "Cottage #12" Please come in! This is our entry where Gary and I will greet you with a big bear hug. We have tried to re-use  everything from our other home into Cottage #12. The large white vintage mirror you might recognize, we had it hanging over our bed in our  last home and the antique side board used to be in the dinning room.

I just had to show you all the new photos for our two grandchildren! I just love the new pictures, we all love our grand kids and think they are the bestest kids in the would (and of course we should) because they are! and the cutest ever too!O.K so now onto the the kitchen. I have many more photos to show you, but blogger seems to be very slow tonight so I will try again tomorrow. I know I am up so late its 12.47 pm. but this is the first time I have had to post and I have missed not posting.
Thank you my sweet friends for leaving me a note while I have been unpacking. It means so much to me. You are the bestest friends and I really love you guys!.
 I am off now to bed and will try again tomorrow (I mean later today) to download photos.
Good night! sleep tight don't let the bed-bugs bite! hehehe

Hi Elizabeth (and Gary), Your new home is just beautiful! I love the entry way and the kitchen. It looks so inviting. I didn't realize you lived in CA. Twelve homes..on my gosh. Moving 12 times...we've had three houses and moved seven times in our marriage and that was enough for me. The last two were company moves so they paid for them. Congrats on your new home and I can't wait to see more of it.

Your new home is lovely! Have you really moved 12 times? I love that one of the first things you showed us was the photo of your grandchildren. I can tell how important those little ones are to you. It's so nice that you are able to use your existing furniture pieces. Can't wait to see more pics! Have a happy Monday my friend!

It looks great, you two! Cottage #12? Will there be Cottage #13? I'm impressed with all your organization skills to have everything looking so marvelous this soon. And, yes, your grands are beautiful.

Cottage # 12 looks like it is a beautiful place! Your foyer looks so warm and welcoming. I love that you are using pieces from your previous home in new places!

Your kitchen looks like a great place to gather with friends. I think I spy a little black toile shade and silver handle in the left corner on that pretty painted piece of furniture!
Hugs,
Penny

So far I'm impressed, sugar! I love the kitchen of course. Ours isn't as big but adequate since I try to NOT cook as much as I used to. Can't wait to see the rest!
