Some cuteness for your day

I really couldn't not adopt this cute face.  She came from The moonlit stitch's etsy shop.  She is a door hanger.
 
What is she sitting on?  I'm so glad that you asked.
A hand made journal from Karen.
 
 
And I won this amazing book.  I love paper crafts already.  I would have purchased this one anyway.  It says it's for child play but trust me there are many things that I will make.  Mabel and I are going to have fun with this.  On the cover is none other than a doll house.  Inside you can make an Airstream Camper and a VW bus.  Have I told you that both my mom and my brother used to work at Airstream.
 
 
 
 
I got this beautiful platter from Judy.  I have to find a good way to hang it.  It's just beautiful.
 
 
Are you shaking your head and asking yourself, "Isn't this house on the market and shouldn't it be staged."  Yep, it is.  My DIL says it doesn't looked staged enough.  I am so tired of the sterile look.  But I will keep it toned down.  If I was sure we were moving I would stage it more and box up things.  Speaking of the house.  We had those two showings on Wednesday.  We heard back from the second one and our house wasn't for them  But, we didn't hear back from the first one.  But, again, the same realtor made another appointment to show the house tomorrow.  I always feel I will jenx something by sounded positive.  Either it is the same people or someone else.  But, again another but, if not, the realtor must think it's worth showing.  So keep those fingers crossed. 
I should be doing all kinds of things today.  I feel like I have hit the wall emotionally and physically.  It didn't help that Izzy the little dog, got us up 5 times last night.  She is doing okay but those back legs collapse still from time to time.
The last picture is my kitchen table staged, he he.  The pictures are dark today.  It is so dark outside today as rain is on its way.

Congratulations on winning the paper craft book. I'm sure you'll use it and will get lots of pleasure from it.

Your house just listed and already you got 3 showing. I'm sure it will sell shortly. The right people have not seen it yet but it will happen.

So sorry about the little dog. After going through many pets when i raised my kids, I no longer keep pets but I still have animals at the farm. It ties you down and they get problems when they get old and I don't have enough time for that anymore.
They take a fair amount of time and years of care
Wishing you good luck of the Irish on selling your house.
Hugs,
JB

How cute is that face!Plus the excitement of winning!

That staging looks inviting to sit a spell and you did say coffee was on? Wish you luck with the sell of your house! Hugs!!

I hate the "staging" thing. I have bought and sold many a house, and I never staged it. They liked that it was homey!
Anyways, love that platter. It is beautiful

I found that decluttering twice and putting on low music and baking bread helped sell our last house in 10 days. Good Luck to you:)

I think you house looks great. A house that has love in it will show a lot better than a sterile one.
Best of luck with the showings.

Having a house on the market is so frustrating. Keeping the house tidy, hurrying to leave for appointments and then finding out that the people who looked at it were not impressed. Been there, bought that tshirt Debby! But it just takes the Right One and it will be sold. Love seeing all the crafts.

Winkel's Crazy Ideas said...

I know what you mean about the sterile look. Selling a house is an exhausting business. We have sold three over the years and juck, it's not much fun. I find it hard to understand why things have to look so perfect. None of the houses we bought looked perfect by any means, but we just looked past the clutter and saw our own possibilities. Oh well, guess people keep getting more picky. Sorry about your little dog, it is a worry when they are ill. Have a good Sunday, inspite of rain. Love your paper craft book by the way. Blessings, Pam xx
