March 9, 2016. Our new home with completion in sight
For readers who wondered where Hubby and I are now calling home, in the past 16 months we have had a downsized home built on wooded property we bought 15 years ago.
It is less than a mile from our former residence. The downsizing is a major step toward our goal of living more simply.
February 20, 2016. Subway tile backsplash goes up in our all purpose room: kitchen, dining, hanging out.
After the months of decisions, decisions and more decisions, we moved in about two months ago. We are loving it, even though we still face many more decisions about disposition of possessions, photos and paper accumulated in nearly 49 years of marriage.
Hubby had an idea last month that we both embraced with a relieved sigh. We set a six-month moratorium for ourselves on any purchases for the house other than those absolutely, positively critical to our well being.
We are repurposing and using furnishings, linens and other necessities of living for six months. Hodgepodge décor it is! A little more than four months remain.
As new patterns are evolving in our new spaces, we are more confident that any future purchases will be in harmony with our home’s design and this season of our lives.
More details to come.
