A BIT OF OUR NEW HOME;

Good afternoon;  As I a have been saying I finally have some proper photos of my new home.. Not remember it is not really finished yet, just a few pieces from back home,,, and a Sat. trip to the huge G. W. store... I was so excited, can't wait to show you all what I found!! buttttt  that is for another post...... sorry... :o]  I had such a fun time going through all the shelves full of wonderful things.....  poor hubby I had to have him go and get me another cart...... lol  Ok so on to the photos...

N.C. Home 001 This is my little corner of our little apt.....  since we did not have a lot of room in the back of our truck , we just brought back out patio set.. I just draped my quit over it to make it more comfy, and soft, oh and go with my light shabby chic look... I think I should have closed the blinds so you could have a better look at it,,, The Prints behind it I brought from home,, if you click the photo you might be able to see them better..

N.C. Home 004 I just could not get a good photo of my Favorite Picture, I love this one, it reminds me of  Italy. I found it on sale a few yrs ago at  Hancock Fabrics.. love it.. It is in a little hall way between our bed room and bath it just seemed the right place to hang it..

N.C. Home 005 Just another shot of it, I think it needs a creamy white table underneath it... don't you.....  oooo another trip to the Good Will...............  yeahhhhhhh

 

N.C. Home 009This is our bedroom, I really miss my four poster bed,,,, but we are going to get it over labor day weekend.... I  am happy to have my bedding with me again.. the wall are bare but I hope I can fill them up soon.....

N.C. Home 010 

N.C. Home 011 Close up of the bed,, have to show off my pillows......  

N.C. Home 015 This pillow my sweet Daughter Heather gave me for Christmas one year.. It will always be on my bed not matter what color my bedding or wall are... lol it is such  a treasure... 

N.C. Home 008 A thought I might do a different angle to my  little seating area.. I have the two chairs that go with the love seat, just forgot to get a photo of them.. They are a darker color then the love seat since I put my quilt over it.. I have curtains to put up, as soon as I find a step ladder,, they are very tall and I don't have any thing to stand on...

So ladies this is part of our new home. As time and my things back home arrive, I will be showing you more. 

The weather here is still very warm, but for some reason I can still feel when the fall days are soon to arrive. So I still have some pool time to get in so that is good... And  Isabella is loving the walks we take during the day and evening after we eat dinner...   Well that is about all for now, I want to thank you all for the very sweet comment's on Pink Saturday, I loved each and every one. So until next time; God Bless;

Hugs;

Alaura

How nice! We've been busy decorating our apartment too. I got a bunch of stuff from the Salvation Army too, to make our apartment more a home away from home. Will be posting soon!

Hello, Alaura,
Your home is so warm and inviting. I loved the tour you gave me. I am like you. When I move, I can hardly wait to get my nest all feathered and comfy. Thanks for sharing with us. I hope you have a very good week. Vicki p.s. The pillow your daughter gave you is wonderful, too.
