Whimsy, Chippy, Vintage, Shabby, Rustic Oh My!!!!

Hello Sweet Blogging Friends.

I am still in the midst of packing up and getting ready to close on JCC #3 and moving on to JCC#4.  

Trying to keep my eye on the Prize as I stumble through the sea of boxes and having a few melt downs but all in all we are so close now.

I wanted to show you one of my favorite shops I frequent.

It is a huge Shop called Vintage Market and it has two floors of vendors. 

They have every taste and decor themes you could ever imagine.

I have lots of pics of the store.  

Just enjoy shopping along.  

If you want to see more I will give you the FB page of this shop at the end.

Almost There!!!!

Hi Sweet Blogging Friends.  

We have only a couple of more weeks to closing.  

Right now it the stress of trying to get the things fixed from the Home Inspections on time.  

So much stress on top of trying to pack and get things ready to move!!!!

It is sad to think about saying Good Bye to
Junk Chic Cottage #3.

I am excited to move to Junk Chic Cottage #4 in a few weeks.
 
I have visions of lovely things for this sweet home.
 
I see pretty flower boxes under those windows with some of my flowers from JCC #3 and some pretty decor for that front porch.
 
Those bushes and flower beds need some TLC too.

My flower boxes under the windows are growing beautifully. 
With it still June they are overflowing and growing faster than normal. 
I will miss them. 
I hope the new owner will keep them pretty.

The look on my cherub bird bath looks confused.  Not to worry sweet cherub I will find a perfect spot for you in JCC #4.

I am so happy everything looking nice and speaks of summer.

I wish all of you a new week full of summer fun.

I will be so glad when we can finally load up the moving truck and close the door on this wonderful home and begin a new chapter of life in JCC#4.

Have a great week.
Hugs,
Kris

Selling, Buying, Packing and Moving Oh My!!!

Hello Sweet Blogging Friends.

Well things are moving quickly to the new job for Terry and the move into our new 
Junk Chic Cottage #4.

Terry will be sworn in on June 24th as the New Fire Chief 
and we will close on this house and our new house on July 8th.

We are going to rent back for a week so we can go to the new house and paint, clean and re do the bathroom to get it ready to move in.  

Terry is also building me a new pantry for the kitchen. 

We would like to have all of this done before we move in officially.

This sweet guy is very confused and wondering why furniture is disappearing and all the decor has come down off the walls.
 
To be nice to the new buyer we decided to touch up all the walls after taking down the decor. 

This way she can move in and not have to paint a thing.

I have been getting all chippy decor I want to take to the new house down and getting it ready to move.
I have sold a lot of my pieces I know I cannot use in the new house.

Who ever invented this green bubble wrap that adheres to each other is genius. 
When you wrap up fragile's it clings automatically to the bubble wrap. 
The item does not unwrap. 
The white bubble wrap does not do this. 
 I am glad I found this green bubble wrap.


My hydrangea plant on the one side out front is finally blooming. 
They have been slow to open up with all the rain and lack of sunshine.



This is the one on the other side. 
It is getting a few buds but at this time last year this plant was three times it size now and full beautiful blooms. 
I really think this cooler weather and so much rain has hindered their growth.

On the other hand my annuals are going crazy with all the rain. 
My bike basket is almost down to the ground and so full. 
These usually are not this big until the middle of July. 
They are loving all the rain apparently.

My knockout rose bushes are going gang busters with the prettiest roses this year. 
Every day they seem to open more and more buds.


This is one of my deck boxes.  It is thriving too. 

I am taking the two of these to the new house to hang out front as window boxes on the new house.


My hanging geraniums are doing great.  I will be moving those to the new house too. 

I told the buyer anything that is not in the ground is being moved. 

I love my flowers too much to leave them all here.


I have my garden angel praying with me that I can make it through the packing, closing and moving and small renovations at the new house!!!!

I may be MIA for awhile in Blog Land with needing time to pack up JCC#3 and move on to JCC#4.
I promise I will show you before and afters as I put my touch on the new JCC#4 in the coming weeks.

Prayers I survive the purging, packing and moving once again.
Hugs,
Kris
