A few things to show you at the new house...

Finally I have a few pretty things to show you at our new house!  There is still lots of work going on and it will be awhile before everything is completed.  But, the painter put up my kitchen lights today and I just had to show you.

This pretty little chandelier was found at Lowes Home Improvement.  I will be adding all the extra crystals soon.
By the way pay no attention to that awful yellow wall it's all being painted a color called "Vanilla Custard" by Behr.
I'll be showing it to you soon.
This one is hanging over the soon to be new table that I ordered from Pottery Barn.  Can't wait to show you.
The deck is being painted and I'm feeling much better about the move and this house. 
Slowly, but surely it's turning into a "Sissie" house.
I can't wait to show you all the changes we've made.
In the meantime be sure and get out there and create, make,
paint, photograph, write, sew, cook, bake and find something wonderful and share it with us.

I love both chandys! Lowe's has some really nice things! I'm so glad that you are settling in, I think it would be fun to start from scratch decorating a new home. BTW, my dining table is from PB and I have had it for 25 years. They are made to LAST!

Looks like you are in the middle of making a Sissiefied nest and I know it will be beautiful. I'm sure it would be hard to pick up and move to a different state. I have lived in the same house for 43 years. Boring!!!!
