Summer fun and moving furniture.

First, the summer fun!! It's such a joy to have friends over. Especially when they have kids that truly enjoy a pool. I think the boys had every water toy we own in that pool yesterday. I didn't realize we had so many noodles!! Ha!
Ah, the colors of the summer garden. And all you thought I had in my garden was pink!!
The first part of the weekend was spent moving furniture. And moving furniture, and moving furniture. Even with a four car garage, we still have furniture and display pieces spilling out onto the driveway. What to do? We're stuffing the house like a sausage!! Ha!!
It's a good thing this room is so big! An armoire, chaise lounge, a bed, two nightstands, a drop leaf desk and three dressers. Hopefully it won't look like this for long.
There are two rooms in the house that I have to have everything in it's place. The livingroom and the diningroom. All the rest of the house can be packed to the gills but these rooms are my calm spot. Here the French cabinet is finally in it's place. It replaced the armoire that is now in that upstairs guestroom. It's going to be a game of musical chairs (and cabinets, and beds, and desks) for awhile. I see a whole house decorating makeover in my future!!

Today though, I'm concentrating on getting everything ready for the Barn House Flea Market this Saturday. My kitchen table runeth over with things that need to be priced and packed to go.

Have a fabulous Monday!! Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Oh Aleta...

Such a beautiful cabinet...and you are right...the room is beautiful and calming. You have such lovely pieces.

This move is going to give you a wonderful lift, albeit all the mess that goes with moving!

Have a terrific day!
Hugs, Nancy

Hi Aleta,
It's good to see you back in contol LOL! I have no doubt that your house will be back to normal by the fall, and you will indeed have transformed your entire house. Your pieces are exquisite. You go girl!

Hi Aleta -
It's good to see you are fluffing and moving and getting things into place again. You never know what fun things you'll come up with before this is finished! And redecorating. I always like that idea - when someone else does the work. Oh, if only I could afford to have someone just come in and do it. Can't wait to see what you're doing around your home. I loved the picture of the kids in the pool.

Hi Aleta, love the noodles! The pool picture is great!

Your French Cabinet is stunning.

Have a great time at the Barn House. Are you taking some big pieces with you?

You can never have too many noodles...or too much furniture. :)
