We are finally in our new home, or at least new to us. We bought a short sale house that was not a short wait, but worth it in the end. This house was smaller than what we were looking for, but had many things we liked, especially location, location, location. But now that we have moved in, I just LOVE it, it's a great layout and feels like the perfect size after all.

We still have boxes to unpack and some organizing to do, but here is a little glimpse of some of my favorite things about this house. First, a little front porch to display my flowers and keep an eye on the kids.
An apple tree, with "the best apples ever", said the previous owners. Apple pies, apple sauce, yum, yum yum!!!

Windows and Light! I love a lot of natural light and this house feels bright, which was very important to me, especially here in the Pacific NW.

A kitchen with cabinets galore, a pantry, and an island. I'm loving it, but I see white cabinets in the future.

A nice white mantle around the gas fireplace.

A room to sew and craft in. I'm not finished yet but I did put up IKEA wall shelves.

An upstairs laundry room. My least favorite chore is laundry, but so far an upstairs laundry room seems to make this never ending chore easier.

Okay, now the real reason we bought this house. The master bathroom has it's own toilet room with a fan and a window that opens...double bonus!!!


  1. Congrats on the new house Christine! I love the photos!! :)

  2. Your new home really is lovely!

  3. I am so happy for you finally getting into your new home. I love, love, love that flower box, did you make that? So cute and I love the chrysanthimums (sp?) you have in it.

    What a nice big kitchen, you are going to need that.

    And your very own craft room...Yipee!!!!

    If you have anything you want to put in the bazaar this year you are certainly still welcome. Did I tell you that I am down to only one 10x10 booth this year? Elaine and Lynn will be on a table across from my booth.

  4. Love this pictures of your new place!
