Thank you all SO very much for your kind comments regarding our upcoming move to the Fort Worth area.
So many delightful Texas bloggers have already laid out the welcome mat.
Reality is setting in and I am purging cabinets and closets like crazy. A garage sale is planned for August 2nd. Whew~ so much to do!
It truly is an exciting and daunting process.
Of course I have already been looking at houses on the internet.
Would you like to see my favorite?
This home was built in 1920 and sits in the historical district of Fort Worth.
I would probably paint the upper walls of the formal dining room a soft, light color, but just look at those floors!!!
The kitchen is full of light. The bottom white cabinets are original to the home.
You just can’t recreate some of the delightful elements found in a historical home.
For those who were wondering “Yes, the Fashionista is moving with us.” The Dallas area is actually a prime player in the fashion industry and there are great opportunities awaiting her. She would sleep in this room until she found a place of her own.
There is even a little guest cottage in the back for Grandma Jingles to live in. She is currently being fitted for her 10 gallon hat. :) Grandma Joyce has opted to remain in the Jacksonville area. The cottage needs a bit of work but OH WOULDN’T THAT BE FUN!
I’ll just sit in the garden and scheme awhile as to how I can talk the present owners into lowering the price to half of what they are asking.
I am thinking that if I tell them that I REALLY love the house they will do it. :)
