“My Christmas Present To Me!”


Description from KPJEWELS: I just bought a "new to me" home and I am moving in tomorrow. It is white with black trim and inside on the walls is some of the oldest wallpaper designs that I have ever seen. It is an older home, nothing fancy but I love it. LOL

    Thanks, Gina and Alice. I never thought the day would ever come when I would have my own home again. Just me and my kitty. Can’t wait.

    Congrats on your new home! How exciting for you! We move into this house the week of Christmas 18 years ago. You will have nice memories and look at all the decorating you can do. There is no place like home (new home) for the holidays! Love the pick too!

    Congratulations on your new home! I love the quirkiness of older homes. My husband and I have an older house in Bucktown. It’s about 120 years old and I adore it. :D Best wishes to you in your new home!

    HAHAHA to Eeeka Mouse — I’m picturing Evelyn’s new house with a ribbon around it and a big red bow on the rooftop!!! ;)

    KPJEWELS says:

    Didn’t get to move in to the house today as we had a snowstorm all day. It is supposed to be sunny and warmer tomorrow and we will try again.

    Martha, my home is only about 70 years old but old enough for me, I guess. Thanks for the good wishes. I can see a lot of home improvements in the near future. LOL

    Eeka Mouse, I will try the giftwrapping tomorrow. LOL

    Dawn, I can’t wait to do my “own thing” when I get into my new home. Nobody to complain about what I do or don’t do to it.

    I came across the most incredible real estate agent and broker that lives in the area. Just two weeks from the time I contacted the real estate agent until I had the key in my pocket. Yahoo!

    Leave it to you, Lynn. Thanks for the laugh. I’ve missed your humour.

    I’m off to bed, ladies. Hopefully I’ll get moved tomorrow. Many thanks for all your kind wishes.

    If I lived nearby, I’d run over and put a sticky-bow on the front door for you Good luck with the move.

    Eeka — You would do it, too! LOL ;)

    KPJEWELS says:

    It was a beautiful day today and I got moved in but not much got organized.

    One doesn’t realize how much they have acummulated over the years until they have to move. LOL.

    Thanks Eeka and thanks for the offer of the sticky bow. I will place one on the door just for you. LOL

    I can’t wait for tomorrow so I can get some organizing done and start decorating for Christmas. Kristofer is coming on the weekend to help.

    Thanks Lynn, and I don’t doubt that Eeka would. LOL

    Thanks, Stormy. This is going to be one of my best Christmas’s in a long time.

    The temperature is supposed to go up to 13 degrees C tomorrow so I am aiming to get all of my houseplants moved while its warm.

    Thanks, everyone for all your kind wishes.

    Eeka Mouse, I placed that big red bow on my front door today just for you. Thanks for the idea.
