Happily Moved


It's been far too long (once again) since I have blogged.
So much has happened in these past few months.
These pictures are just a highlight of those things...




Hallo my friends!

Spring has sprung here in Northern Virginia!

Love blossoming!
(My son and new daughter-in-law)

Storage units have been cleared out completely!
(Yay, we finally have our new place and can see our 'stuff' thats
been stored for a year)

Me heading into work
all dolled up.
Yay, make-up!

Sweet heart giving me red roses!

Grand Babies growing-up too quickly!

Taking a nice walk during the Blizzard of 2016

A little bit of paper crafting to ease the chilly weather.

Pretty blue sky.
Freezing weather!

YAY!

New creative space on the first day!!!
Lots to do, lots to do...

My Summer 2015



So, here I post about moving 
and taking time away from blogging only to up
and stop blogging again!!!
I had intended to start blogging.

Then something happened...

But before I tell you my story please enjoy 
this picture
of a recent 
crochet project
I just learned how to make.




A crochet rag rug!
Made from old sheets.

                                  Now on with my story...

I hopped into my car and decided to drive from
the east coast to the west coast.
This was on day one

of my solo travels
 June 2015.

I visited loved ones in the very hot desert!

104 really is too hot for me!


Thank goodness for refreshing pool
and air conditioning!

I crossed bridges in the rain on my way to and from that hot desert!

I drove during the day, at night and everything in between!


I borrowed a bit of nature on my journey.


Sunrises mesmerized me!


Sunsets calmed me.

The smell of the Pacific ocean made my heart jump for joy!

Seeing palm trees made me giggle!

And the smell of rain comforted my weary gypsy soul.


                 Some may wonder why I took this solo drive from     
                                   one coast to the other... 

This is why!

My second grand baby needed her Nana there before
she made her big debut!


And I made it just six days before her arrival!!

Happy Birthday little lady!

And this too!!

My first grand baby needed his Nana too.


Little man spent many hours nestled with Nana!

                   Once home I returned to crocheting! 
                                                
                               Here are just a few items


                                                 
Minion creations for Little Man
and other little fellows...


                                                                         
Minion creations for Little Lady
and other frilly, girlie stuff!


Crocheting for my grand babies
brings me so much joy!


Love!

From Here to There...

Have you ever moved?
If so, you understand the stress (physical and emotional) it causes…

This post is about our move…

The fountain outside our loft.
It was cold for weeks
AND
we were indoors...

packing!
After three years here at the loft
we'd found a HUGE house to lease
just in time
for family to come and stay with us!
Or so we thought...

The snow fell and we continued to pack.
The snow cleared one day
and luckily it was the day our moving truck
and movers arrived.
Good-bye Fountain.
Good-bye city loft.

Hallo new place!

Blues skies and bitter cold day to move on!

New art studio
a.k.a. formal living room.

Formal dinning room filled with boxes.

Dining room...

The next day
after arriving here
at the huge house
it snowed!

While inside I had allot of work to do!


Studio took a back seat
so I could work on kitchen area first.



And it sat for one week.

So I got the kitchen done
and only began in the art studio
when the problems really got bigger…
Turns out this house had a few hidden features
that slowly began making me sick,
REALLY SICK.

Long story short,
after only 4 weeks in this house
we broke lease and moved again.

I decided to take a break from blog
and mostly everything else so I could deal with
belongings, moving, and stress that mounted over the course of
a two and a half month period
which started in February
and only really ended about two weeks ago.


I sold allot of furniture!
Most from my art studio collection.
Put ninety percent of what we own in storage
and moved into a small
five hundred and fifty sq ft flat.
I hung my bird mobile up
to remind me that home is
wherever we are!

Despite all the stress from moving
twice in under five weeks
(HUGE MOVES)
I do like the view outside our window now.


The girls like having their own
spots in the sun


However
they are not too keen
about bathing
but I like their new bathing area
(instead of stooping over a bath tub)
this is much easier.

The girls aren't so sure about that though.
Home Sweet Home
