Some News

Happy Spring!

I miss all of you.  As you know I have my hands full with selling our home, looking for another home and now moving my mom up from Florida to Illinois.  So not much time for blogging.  I do miss all of you very much.  Hope once life calms down and things begin to get in a better place,  I will be back to blogging and IG.

The good news is Junk Chic Cottage II is under contract.  We had two offers come in a couple of days ago and now it is under contract.  We are excited to have this home sold.

Now on to finding a new cottage in the desired area where it will be close for Terry to work and me to still watch my grand girls for my daughter.

Houses in the area we are looking come on quickly and sell within days.  So now that we have our home sold we are hoping when something great pops up for sale we will be in a good place to go in with an offer.


My mom has been moved up here with us and is doing well in rehab.  Hoping each day she will regain her strength and be able to come home soon.

Also:

I am selling my white slipcovered couch pictured above.  It is a great couch very comfy and in good shape and I had a custom slipcover made for it a few years.

So if you live near me or know of someone that does that would like this couch just let me know in an email and I can give you more details.

Hope all of you are doing well.  Miss all of you and look forward to coming back to blogging soon.

Hugs,
Kris

  1. How nice that you have your home under contract. I do hope you'll find something nice in the new Place that you will enjoy as much as your earlier homes.
    I do hope that your mother will get real well soon.
    Take care and have a lucky house hunting.
    Love Elzie

  2. UH-OH! Do I see a new couch in your future? I can't believe you are getting rid of that pretty sofa. If I needed one I would be there in a heartbeat! I have seen it in person and it is beautiful.

    Praying your mom adapts and does well in in rehab and that you can get a bit of relaxing in and not have any 'bumps in the road' as you all move forward. Can't wait to see your new 'choices'. Love to you- xo Diana

  6. That's great news about your house being sold, Kris! One less thing on your list. And also getting your mother moved up and starting in rehab here. I hope all the timing is just right in every aspect of this complicated time in your life. God will continue to lead you every step of the way, but then I know that you know that!

  13. Kris, So good to read the news of your mother doing better. I know your cottage will sell. I hope you get a nice home where it will accommodate your husband's job and your desire to help your daughter. I love that couch, but it would not be so white with us. :) It will sell and you will be looking for another before you know it. Blessings, take care, xoxo, Susie

  16. Congrats on the sale of your house! It's inspiring because we're just about to sign the contract to list our house! I hope it sells as quickly as yours! Hope your mom's health improves quickly.

  17. If only I lived close I would buy your couch in a heart beat. Hope you house hunting is both fun and successful. Remember, even fun things are stressors and with everything else you have going it is especially important that you have an outlet. I know first hand that when someone you love is ill and dependent on you for both physical and moral support, it can be difficult to take time for yourself. Accept help from those who offer it in what ever way is useful for you. Blessings sent all around for both your mother and you and Terry. Hugs
