Home Cozy Home

 I rushed to get pictures before the sun went down and guess what?  My camera battery was almost dead.  Some of the pictures are blurry.  While I was taking pictures Little Hank wanted no part of his toys being in the basket under the television.  He was crying and trying to pull the basket down.  Then outside his brother Piper had dug himself under the porch.  He came crawling out all covered with dirt and leaves.  He is now all sound asleep on the white sofa.  I have a terrible time getting him to come inside.  He is on a lead that gives him access to a good piece of the yard.  He loves it.  Most of the time he just sits and sniffs.  He hardly ever barks here.
These pictures are all in the same room.  Do you see that really high shelf.  Strangest thing ever.  I wish I had a Christmas village to put up there.  There is no way I am going to start another collection.  It was a real ordeal to get the baskets up there.  Can you see the sign that says ,"  we are blessed?"  There is an outlet up there as well. 
Hubby put the Christmas items on the shelves above the cupboards.  Next year maybe I can figure out something more uniform.  Oh, I see I forgot to move the picture I wanted to hang.  Oh well.  My house isn't perfect and never will be.
 My tree this year.  Straight off the moving van.  I uncovered it and plugged it in.  Those big boxes are from the American Girl Doll Store.  Yes, my grands are spoiled.
The dining room.  My first attempt at any picture hanging.  Just a start of a wall grouping. 
And here he is.  Little Mr. Hank the Tank and his favorite toy his piggy. 
Welcome to my home.  Remember we just moved 2 weeks ago.  We love it and I hope you do too.

Just in case you wondered about some stats:
5 ceiling fans
14 doors
1,500 square feet
3 bedrooms
laundry room
2 car garage
8 miles from our other home

Debby, I truly wish you and your husband a long happy life there. You can take your time getting it in order now. I remember when you first were putting your old place up for sale..It was hectic at times. I am happy you can relax now. Sounds like a big place to me. Blessings to you, xoxo,Susie


Your new home is perfect! LOL about the puppy and his piggy toy. Looking good!

I love it! And it looks pretty grand already! My mom's condo had that same high shelf. She had a collection of clocks up there. It looks like you are getting things in order pretty quickly. Once the holidays are over, you can relax and decide if you want to change anything. The open floor plan seems very family friendly. There is going to be an American Girl box under the tree for my granddaughter, too. Love the new house!!!!

Hi Debby, It's so nice of you to give us a house tour since you've only moved two weeks ago. I love the open plan and that's what I have in our home. It's great when family comes over.
I love your kitchen and those shelves on top of cupboards. A perfect place for a village.
I haven't moved but I don't even have anyChristmas ornaments out yet. My first day of feeling better after a week of antibiotics. Maybe next week. I need to tidy the house first.

Stay safe

You've certainly gotten a great start to settling into your new home, Debby! It's so much work. I've lived in my home for more than 20 years, I can't imagine having to pack up and move. May you continue to enjoy getting things the way that feels comfortable to you! Blessings, Cindy xo

Your new home looks terrific, Debby! Sounds like you have plenty of room and lots of amenities. So happy your other house sold and you were able to move now and get settled in before Christmas! Enjoy your 1st Christmas in your new home!

Hi Debby, your new home looks perfect . . . and that puppy and his piggy . . . cute, extremely cute :)

Oh, Debby...I ADORE your home. It is just the right size. Oh, how I wish we could dump this place and move me into a small cottage. The way you are decorating it is lovely....very homey. Glad it is so close to your other place so you can continue with the children. I sent you an email last night to the clown email...hope you got it. I need your address because one of Santa’s elves has left a little house warming/Christmas present here. Love you lots. g

It does look cozy! Glad you are all happy there including your fur babies!
I am sure you will figure out the perfect thing for that high shelf!
Merry Christmas,

You've done so much since you've moved in! I love my high shelf--since there's an outlet on ours too, I put a string of white mini-lights up there and they make any decor look cute and are wonderful as a nightlight. Happy holidays in your new home!

I'm so impressed with everything you've done so far since the move. Enjoy your holidays with your grands and sweet pups!
