My husband and I put our house on the market, it sold within 24 hours. Here is the 4 sale sign, last night we signed the papers and sealed the deal, we got asking price. I do hope my moms house gets remodeled in time. I did call my FIL to tell him, so hopefully things can get done by the 28th of March! this is when we have to be out.
Today is the day I go to moms to get her things she wants to keep out of the house. She will be moving in with us while her house is remodeled. My Pop starts the work on Wednesday. Our for sale sign goes up on Tuesday morning. That is the photo I will probably post next.
It will take Pop about 2 weeks to get my moms house done. After he is done we will all move into her house. Steve and and I will pack our house up a little at a time each day and bring the most essential things to my moms house after it is remodeled.
I chose Shaker Cabinets for the kitchen in off white. My moms house is 2000 square feet smaller then the house we live in with way less cabinets for storage. My Pop is taking care of that problem in the kitchen and throughout the house but Steve is going to build them in the garage like we have at our house here, we keep large kitchen things and holiday stuff in the cabinets. It's going to be hard to give up all this space, but it's for the best. This neighborhood has never been a good fit for us. We love it here the city the atmoshere and everything about this area, we just don't love the way our house is situated. When we bought this house it was brand new, we only had a map to look at, that is never a good idea if you cannot have a true visual view of what things will look like.
In any event my mom needs us and her house is situated perfectly, it just needs everything done to it!
It will be like a brand new house. Stay tuned I will have photos to share.
The next four days Steve and I will be going through moms house.
Here is a few things I made this week...earrings to go with my floral necklaces and a beautiful Fairy Sun catcher. I love Fairies.
I won't be able to get these posted to my Etsy or Artfire Shops until Wednesday if my body does not hurt to bad from working so hard.
These earrings go with the necklaces I made and are posted in the previous blog post. although I do show the matching earrings to one of the necklaces above with the same necklace from the last post. I still need to make a blue necklace and Rose Gold necklace.
Yes it will be spring soon... I know it's snowing and icy for many of you. How about some spring blooms?
We got our house going up for sale in about 1 1/2 weeks. They will be coming to take professional photos. We hired the best agent in our area. He gave us discount off his commission because I said to him. "I listen to your show on the radio and I want you to sell my house". Yay!
It's raining a lot today that is good we need the rain....now that the house will be for sale, will there be lots of rain? do I need to try to cover the carpet at the entrance into the house with something? have people wear shoe covers? I don't want my carpet and flooring dirtied. I had that happen at the last house I sold they left the floor completely muddy. You can imagine my anger! GRRRRR! I did complain the agent that was showing my house that day.
Please tell me who would walk into a muddy wet yard on a rainy day into someone's home?
Okay here are the Spring Bloom Flower Pendants I made today.
I used Swarovski Crystals as always.
On the left I used Rose Gold Swarovski Crystals for the petals and leaves, with a copper blank, copper ball chain necklace.
For the Silver Pendant I used Tanzanite petals and peridot green leaves on a silver flower blank with sterling silver ball chain.
