We found a house on 10 Acres, yippie!

Hi everyone! Well, we are officially under contract, and due to close June 15th! We can't wait to be in Virginia...home, sweet home!
So this is the house we fell in love with.
This is our first resale home we've ever bought. We usually buy new to ensure things are under warranty and turn key, so this is new for us. 
 It's an all brick house, 3 levels, completely finished. 
 The house is surrounded by plenty of trees on rolling hills.
 It has a maintenance free deck. 
The grounds are beautiful. 
It even has a climate controlled wine cellar, and I barely drink, y'all! 
Come on in...
I wonder if the wine comes with the house, lol! Probably not! 
It was 56 degrees when we walked in.
This house has lots of heavy trim work, which we love and have always wanted.
Check out the huge Palladian windows in the living room.
The staircase splits the master bedroom from the rest of the rooms.
Here is the mudroom. I don't even know what to do with this space, but I'm sure once I'm in, the ideas will start coming.
Here is the staircase.
The family room is a step down and the whole main level is all hardwood flooring.
Here is the office.
This house needs some minor updating, which will lead to some fun projects.
So there you have it, our house to be. More pictures to come...
***Maybe I'll call my blog...the Colonial Home! :)

On a sad note, I lost my father two weeks ago, today. If you all wouldn't mind keeping my family in prayer, I would really appreciate it. We will have the funeral in 2-3 weeks, and then our move, it's a lot to handle all at once, sniff!

Thanks for visiting! xo, Liz

Big News

We are moving...
My husband is getting a new job, but with the same company, and we will be moving in 60 days. Guess where?
Virginia, home sweet home! We are so excited, we have missed Virginia more than you can imagine. So, we will be gearing up for the big move soon. I can't wait to go on our house hunting trip. 
I was just thinking about starting on my spring/Easter decorating, but may have to skip it...too much to do, in so little time. ;)  Anyway, I just want you all to know I'm still around, and will be sharing things here and there between now and the move, so stay tuned. :)
xoxo, Liz

Spring Decor

Hi everyone, is anyone still around? :) Sorry for not posting since Christmas, we've been super busy. My four daughters participate in *All Star Competitive Cheer* so between that and school, I've not had a lot of time to post.
Today, I will do a quick post of some of my spring decor.
I changed up the dining room area and added this vignette with lots of yellows and greens.
In the family room, I added this lemon wreath and decor accents, in yellow.
In the kitchen, I added faux lemons to my wire cloche.
In the family room, on other side of the fireplace, I added these little garden balls to my mirrored candle sconces.
On my Baker's Rack, I added a small plant to my cookbooks.
I love decorating with faux artichokes, so I placed some in a basket of greenery, on my Baker's Rack.
On my Hutch, I added this vignette. I bring this look out every spring.
On the kitchen table, I added green plates with large brown chargers and placemats. I have a lot of greens, yellows, golds, browns, and reds in this area.
In the kitchen, I added these cute glass jars and filled them with pasta.
Here on the Baker's Rack sits a cute Rooster and other decor items.
I found matching candle holders at Marshall's and on clearance. I added some decorative rock and a simple candle.
On the coffee table, I added this grass arrangement and two book boxes with a large decorative ball.
On the entertainment center, I added a yellow rustic pot with a garden ball, and a sign that says, family! :)
Also, on the coffee table, sits a very large oversized bowl, filled with garden balls.
I moved my black hutch from the formal dining room to the informal dining room.
So there you have it, our home decorated for spring. :)  Thanks for stopping by and for all the sweet comments that have been left since Christmas. ((Hugs and Love)) ~Liz
