It's Ours!

You might have seen some of the mosaic house number plaques I have made for different customers on my Lavender Hill Studio Blog, here.

See the one I am starting on below? It is for a VERY SPECIAL CUSTOMER....ME!! We closed on our house today!


So in the next month you can follow along as I sort, have a yard sale, pack.....paint, install, clean...and close one house and move into my new home. Want to come help?
Oh and during all of this, we have company coming Sunday for the night from out of town and company coming Labor Day weekend for a couple of nights.
I'm loving life!
Welcome Home,
Penny

Whoo Hoo!! Penny, I am so excited and happy for you. In spite of the hard work ahead, it is going to be so much fun moving in and making that house your home. BTW, how far is it from where you live now. And if you don't mind me asking, why are you moving??

Congratualtions! You know, the old saying is "the cobblers son always goes barefoot", meaning we never seem to get around to doing for ourselves what we do for others. I'm glad you are making beautiful house numbers for yourself to enjoy!
