Have you ever visited the Graphic's Fairy??

Good morning sweet people!  Have you ever visited the Graphic's Fairy?

She is a wonderful source of vintage graphics to use in your crafting, cardmaking and any other way you choose to use them!  All are free.  I have been following her for years now and love the vintage seasonal graphics I find on her site and love seeing what other people have done with the graphics, too.  Anyhow, she has a contest going right now and if you make a comment on her "before" kitchen that she is updating you will have a chance to win a 1K gift certificate to Home Depot!  Make sure you pop over there!

I am getting settled into my new home and my new sofa and chair for the lvrm is being delivered this afternoon.  I am soooo excited!  I will post pictures soon.  Meanwhile I have been working in the yard with Lilly and still unpacking boxes-ha!  But I am so glad to be here!
I bought these cute cafe curtains (2 pr) to cover the huge kitchen window.  It really brightened up the room!

I added a bit of wallpaper border over the cupboards that are over the stove and it catches the light beautifully.
My new electric range is being installed tomorrow and a new over/under washer/dryer will also be hooked up tomorrow.  I am thankful for friends who are also electricians!!  The old range cannot be picked up until after the Labor Day Weekend so right now it is in the middle of the floor-ha!
The bathroom is where the W/D will be and after installation, it will fit snuggly back into the space.  I am so excited!  And at my age, I feel these will be one-time purchases-ha!

And my sweet Lilly just loves running up and down stairs and can get into all kinds of mischief in the front bedroom where things are still in disarray!  She got hold of a skein of yarn up there the other day and did a real number on it-ha!  So I put the baby gate up at the bottom of the stairs so she can't go up there without me. :)

Thanks so much for visiting and come again soon! Love to all, my heart to yours...

Does anyone know how to change your primary e-mail address?  In moving I no longer have the SC e-mail address but comments are going to that one.  I tried the "add author" to change the e-mail address but it does not give me that option of making it my primary address.  Thanks in advance for help.
Have a wonderful day!

Views of my back yard from the upstairs window, great size for me to maintain!

So pretty with large old Maples, Beech-nut and other trees.  Love it!  Foliage should be beautiful.  I moved just in time to enjoy the Fall!

Thanks for visiting!!  Come again soon!

My wild heart to yours...

The Wedding couple and Unpacking

I now have a photo to show you of my lovely daughter Christine and her wonderful hubby, Jim!  Charleston Weddings are the best, so romantic and beautiful!  They were married at the Pineapple Fountain.

I am so happy for them!  A Mother's dream, happiness for her children!  God Bless them always!

Making some progress with settling into my new house.  I love it here so much.  I am quite exhausted but am chilling out today with a cup of coffee and blogging. 

This was the dining room a few days ago.  I emptied a lot of these boxes yesterday.
 This is another of the dining room before I moved the China Closet to the corner, etc.  
 This is the kitchen yesterday. The pictures are dark but it is really bright with a double window over the sink.
This is the little sunroom/front porch-the only settled place-ha!  It has 6 windows and I love having coffee there in the mornings.

This is a corner of the living room where I have my piano. (Big Smile)

I cannot wait to be settled and will post the "after" photos soon.

Thank you for coming and I hope you will visit my other blogs (links in the sidebar).

Happy Tuesday to you all.

My heart to yours

I am so happy to be back in my hometown and back on line!  I just got hooked up to the internet this morning!  It was a hard road getting here and right now I am in a nightmare of un-packing but feel at peace already coming "home".

I have some pictures but have not down loaded them yet, just wanted to let you know I am back and living in my new home that I bought.  God Bless, come back soon.
This is a picture from last Christmas but wanted to share that my oldest Christine and Jim got married last Monday!!  Lots of happiness going around!!

My heart to yours...
