Weeeelllll….keep your fingers crossed for us. We submitted an offer on this beauty today.

I know.
Pretty huh? I so hope this is the house for us. Hardwood floors, slate porches front and back, a barrel ceiling entry way that is calling out to be lined with reclaimed wood, a huge, beautiful kitchen… The list goes on and on.

But if this is our home, I have a problem. Some of my furniture is not going to fit and others just won’t make sense in this very rustic, Texas style, home. Remember that our City House was a 1979 Brady Bunch style home with soaring ceilings and funky angles. My bright rug and living room art won’t work, and my yellow night stands won’t fit the way the guest room is configured. Hardest of all, the mudroom bench may not fit in the entry way. It will be tough getting rid of things that I have an emotional attachment to, but more stressful for me is what to do with these beloved pieces. I will have to sell it in order to buy or make things that will fit. I have not sold any of my furniture before and I may have a hard time pricing it. I am going to need help on this part from those of you who do sell your work!

On the bright side, I will need a ton of new stuff that I look forward to collecting and creating…if we get the home.

Fingers crossed. There may be some thrifting, resale shopping and garage sales in my future!
