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

  1. Looking forward to reading about your journey. We had problems with our last house when we sold, so when we sell this one we are going to hire a home inspector first. That way it will take the pressure off of selling. We learned a lot from selling our last home.

  17. Though this has been fraught with anxiety, it was one of the fastest real estate turnarounds I've seen. I actually love the new cottage best of all. It looks more cottage-y and old fashioned to me. Looks like something I would have instantly chosen myself. Don't wear yourself down to a nub! Yeah, right, you're thinking!

  21. I'm back! I am so happy for you. I can't imagine they found much for you to fix with the home inspection...you have done so many upgrades to the place and Terry is certainly attentive to safety issues with his work. Always something, isn't it?

    Can't believe you will leave that sweet cottage before I see it one more time. I will miss that cute place but know your next one will be just as cute!

    Have a great week- try to relax a bit. xo Diana

    ps. Coming off I65 onto 80 yesterday and getting the roughly 10 miles to the 284 bypass took approximately 2 hours...on a Sunday afternoon- no less. LOL Gotta love Chicago traffic.

  23. I am praying that the closing goes well for you and that you have patience with it all. It's so much stress for the two of you and hope it will settle down for you once it's all done and you are moved into your new home. Take care and sending you a big virtual hug.

  27. Breath, just breath it will all continue to fall into place. The physical demands on top of feeling anxious will only be temporary and then you can go about the business of settling into your forever (I pray) home.
    Prayers for you to feel calm.

And of course the first poeple who saw Junk Chic Cottage #3 wanted it becuase It is so adorable! I can't wait to see Junk Chic Cottage #4. It looks cute even before you put your finishing touches on it. I love the wood floors, and I love the black and white kitchen! So pretty!!! Your summer mightbe even more busy than mine! ;P

  30. I wish you could take ALL of your flowers with you... and the deck.. and the garage!!!! Hard to have done all that work just to have to leave it... but I think you guys NEED projects! so you will have many more at the new place. Will be fun to see the inside as you go along, and what you do with it. Is it about the same size, minus a basement? The first pictures I think made it look a little bigger inside? I bet you are excited for closing. Sure has happened fast! xoxo Marilyn

  34. Wow, I think this is my favorite house of yours so far!! I'm in love with it. I can even see some kind of tiny gingerbread running trim along that gorgeous gable. You sure can transform ANY house!
