Playing House


Happy Thursday, Y'all!

I made a run over to Fredericksburg today
to get our utilities set up at our new home,
so I also took the opportunity to run a few small pieces of furniture over, too.

Not much really, just our sweet little farmhouse table...





 my well loved French park chairs




and a few pretties just to give it more the look of home.


I used the existing nails/holes to hang my fabulous chalkboard
I acquired this past Summer.
Once we get settled, I'll re-hang it a little lower.
I'm OCD about stuff like that.





That's all.
Just playing.
:-)

I'll be making many, many more such runs over
to the new homestead in the days ahead, so check back often for my updates!

And a quick reminder, don't forget to visit my darling friend Debra at
Common Ground
for her new weekly get-together,
Vintage Inspiration Friday


Since I'm completely inspired by our new home,
I'm linking this post with Debra.

It's a party you don't want to miss!

And be sure to visit Cindy at My Romantic Home for
Show and Tell Friday, too!


Have a wonderful evening!

Anne, it is looking like home already. I love the chairs and table and the beadboard is awesome! You are going to have so much fun getting settled into your new home. Wish I lived closer to help you! Don't work too hard. You don't want to wear yourself out. Just remember, when moving, you can't get it all together in a day. It's just not possible! I know you are so anxious to move. Love & blessings from NC!

Precious house..we live close to you in Austin & we've restored an old home from the 1800's...I'm hoping in the next couple of weeks to put more photos of the ole house onto my blog. Hope you'll ck it out sometime....we can inspire each other w/our older home ideas!
I also love to read Hill Country House (blog) from Fred...one day we'll all have to meet up and shop at Red and Spruce! (and did you say NEW Homestead??) did they revamp the old store? Would love to know...used to be a fave....we actually got married in Fredericksburg (in the sweet small Catholic chapel) cuz we love it there so much!

I am so excited for you!!!! And that sweet little farm table and chairs looks right at home!

My hubby is on his way to Alabama...I can have him swing your way. He owes me BIG right now!:))) I am sure I could convince him to help a sister out!;)

Things are okay here. It has been a tough week but I am hanging in and hanging on! Thanks to all of your prayers! They are keeping me going, that is for sure! :)

Love to you, my friend!

With just these few pieces, I am already in love.

Anji Johnston said...

I feel like a kid in a toy shop waiting patiently to see how your house decorating comes together! Daily updates pleeezzzzeeeee....

Jaime Haney aka ArtsyFartsy.Me said...

oooo how fun! decorating a new house for me was always fun but a bit daunting cause I luckily had lots of movers to help but then everybody asked what goes where and I just didn't know yet! Time gets away and well... I just never had that ocd you're referring to so a lot of my wall stuff is still hung on nails that were already there!

eekk....

You may have inspired me to change that. With fall in the horizon... I'm feeling more nest-like :)

Sue said...

I TOTALLY understand the OCD thing. I seem to have the same issues! Love the simplicity of your pictures and looking at your blank canvas that is just waiting to be painted!

Take care, Sue
