we're really going to do this all again

trucks will come with supplies

things will be built
you see, we've put in an offer on this place and it needs quite a lot of work:



don't mind the iffy bricks, they're part of the barn.

REALLY a lot of work.

waiting on pins and needles to hear whether our offer is accepted. and in the meantime, that slavedriver of a husband has gone to pick up boxes, so i guess i'll be packing this weekend. i wish i could just get some pretty shoes, click the heels three times and say, "there's no place like home..." and just be there. :-)

Wow!!!!

That means moving early summer to your own farm.

Congratulations.

Ofcourse the offer isn't accepted yet but it probably will be.

Enjoy maybe one of your last lazy weekends.

You'll have to wait until Spring to see what grows there. I hope the house is in better shape than the barn.

Where are you going to put the new studio? Will it be blue?

Tracy Golightly-Garcia said...

I hope you get the house you want and don't worry everything will work-out for you and your family.

Cannot wait to see the pictures once everything is done.

Have a great week-end!

Best
Tracy

You showed us this place during one of your explorations, with a picture of a horse at one end of the barn I think. This was the place I wanted for you. I hope you get it! You will make it beautiful as you have done with your other spaces.

I'm so excited for you. Congratulations. I am also looking forward to following along on this journey.

By the way, the photos are gorgeous. The land reminds me a lot of where I live.

Magpie said...

that place looks so peaceful... I don't know if it was the combination of the bricks, the snow, and the barn, but it looks so nice :)

and while I was scrolling down looking at the pictures, I happened to see that I was on the right side of your screen, under your "regular reads" section :) This flattered me more than I could express. You're one of my regular reads as well :) Thank you!
