The Garden Bell said...

Take your time sweetie... on everything. Picking colors, painting rooms, organizing shelves.... We will all wait patient. Not too worry, it's been very quite here in blogland and you will have no problamo jumping right back in the thick of things. Many of us are taking it slow now in the heat of the summer.

Toodles,
Kate

Hi Koralee!
You just know how much some of us LOVE vintage linens. Oh that tablecloth! There's nothing like the color and weight of the vintage tablecloths. Thinking of you enjoying your new home makes me smile!

How wonderful! I've been forever dying to add color around the house, but unsure how. Can't wait to see your ideas!

Hopefully, I will be there too with our new place. We had a hiccup with our final paper work but are optimistic all will work out so we can close next week. Saying a prayer it all works out. Hope you're settling in to the new home with ease and joy!

You are so right....color is wonderful and it influence is unlimited! I've started a new blog to focus on my crochet and sewing. I'd love to have you pop in for a visit. It's where all of my posting will take place. I'm using my Queen of Dreamsz blog for uploading my vintage pattern collection.

I like the way you have created a card that does not look flat despite the fact it is only one layer. It is so cute image with cup of coffee.

Good morning gorgeous! I BET YOU ARE SOOOOOOO BUSY! I am feeling 100% better thanks to that chiropractor and the exercises he prescribed! HOW ARE YOU? Sent off a little envelope for you yesterday...TONS OF LOVE TO YOU! Anita

Trisha Brink Design said...

Oh My....how exciting for you to have a new home to pick colors for! I can't wait to see what you come up with. I was just looking at my living space the other day and wanting to do something different myself...sadly no time right now....so I'll just live vicariously through you! Take your time and enjoy...but I double dog dare you to step out of your comfort zone and do something REALLY NEW! Tee hee hee... no pressure....really! ;D

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Sweet one!

I just got back from my therapy...another fabulous CRACK and electrical massage....WOW! Oh dearest, the amount of work you HAVE to do at this time...your poor back! I hope that once all is put in its place, you will be able to find some relief! It has really helped me to get this help. My garden however, is suffering from a lack of bending and pulling on my part!!!! I must get out there maybe next week.

SO HAPPY TO KNOW that you are working away getting your new cozy home in order!

MANY HUGS TO YOU ON THIS DAY, Anita

Hi Koralee,

Love your mug!

Just finished writing the last of your colourful postcards you sent to me with the cupcake liners. They were a great success with my family and friends receiving them! Oscar Wilde's quote is so true.

Happy weekend and good luck with unpacking!

Lieve groet, Madelief x
