There are always things that I like more and things that I like less when moving to a new place. Here are a few.
Well, for one, I had to leave my roses behind. Hopefully they will appreciate and care for them as much as I did. Also, there is a rose garden in this town if I ever have a yearning to see roses. : )
I just moved to the next town over. It's peaceful with lots of trees and a better place for me to take pictures.
I'm closer to great shops now. Well, that might not be such a good thing. ; )
My home is even smaller than the last one, but I don't mind. I'm all about simplicity as I get older. I used to have grey countertops, which were a bit too dark for me. Now, everything is white, which is a clean and fresh look.
I've always loved blue in the home, and since I now have white countertops, I thought blue accents would be pretty for Fall and Winter. I found this teapot at Home Goods and just had to get it.
I thought that I would not hear the sound of the train any more when I moved, but my first night here when I was lying in bed, I heard that wonderful sound of the train whistle blowing. I had no idea it was that close to us. The train runs through both towns, and when I hear it, it's like music to my ears.
I have lived in small homes, medium sized homes, a big home with a large pool, and I've always made each place a comfortable and safe haven for my family.
Every house where love abides
and friendship is a guest,
Is surely home,
and home sweet home
for there the heart can rest.
~Henry Van Dyke
Here is the first Halloween decoration I put out. I saw this porcelain figurine at Michaels, and since Jess just got married, I thought it was so funny.
I didn't have internet access for a few days and really missed you. Just a few days makes a difference in this caring and sharing world of blog land.
