“Old Home is New Again”


Description from KarenDe-Challenge Chick: The moving truck isn't here with my stuff yet, but my 2 cats and I made it safely home last night. So for now, my old home town is my fresh new start - where the mountains meet the plains under the wide blue Montana sky!

    Nice pick. My daughter is in Montana now and loves the weather there. Good luck on making your new fresh start in your old home town.

    Oh Montana! That sounds so lovely Karen!
    I ‘hear’ contentment in your description.
    Glad your “home” again!!! Give the kitties a belly rub for me. ;-)

    Your pick is beautiful, just like Montana!

    So glad you made it home safe and sound. We had to give my daughter’s cat a prescription cat tranquilizer when they were moving to Kentucky (from West Texas).
    Your Pick looks relaxed and optimistic…Hope you -and the cats – are feeling that way! :-)

    Karen, I half-expected this pick to be all dark gray — as in a “clean slate” for your new beginning in Montana! LOL ;-)

    Actually, I like your idea for colors better — very lovely to represent the “Big Sky Country” you know and love, and some of us have only heard about! Now we can see it through your eyes, Karen! :D

    When I say “old home,” I mean it literally! :P I have moved in with my parents (hopefully for just a short time) while I transition from graduate school/teaching to a new career in ???? Until I find a job, I will be working on setting up a website for my jewelry, and making picks – of course!

    That sounds very exciting, Karen!!! I wish you all the Chick luck in the world!!! :D I know you are up to this newest challenge!

    KPJEWELS says:

    This sounds like contentment, Karen. Glad you have a safe place to stay while you get settled. The chickies are rooting for ya. Will you be posting anything in the Design Gallery. We’ll be looking for them. Hugs and good luck for your future.
