House and Home

A corner of the little parlor like living room.

We have been trying to sell our house.  The market is so crazy right now, so it is taking a long time.  The house is in one of those typical subdivisions, with the four bedrooms 2 1/2 baths tradition style that everyone seems to want.   It is a nice home but since SA and the boys do a lot of the building and need real workshop this is not available in this location.  We also need to move closer to the studio in the final move.

The problem now as well as being a slow market is the fact of keeping a house in a perfect showing condition.  No one lives this way.  I just want to get my life back together.  I want to decorate and move things around and the boys want to cook, and it just makes me crazy.   Many things have been packed and taken to the studio and now we are always trying to remember what we need and where it is located.  I hope we find the right family for our house soon.

Dining room, the buffet is a little large for this room.
I am always drawn to big chunky pieces of furniture.
Everything is painted neutral, since we are moving, a little
boring for me.

This is a thrift-ed table that is so great.

    Good luck! The market is so crazy right now, but your house looks really cute.
    I love your dining table. It’s really beautiful.

    Wishing you a wonderful experience with your home sale! Here’s some encouragement: we sold our home 10 days after we listed it with 2 backup offers(a few months ago) and were closed and moved out in 7 weeks total! There were several other competing homes listed in our neighborhood at the same time, some of them nicer than ours (pools, upgraded windows, etc.) THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE READY, WILLING, AND ABLE TO BUY YOUR HOME. Trust that your buyer is out there. And I do sympathize with the keeping it clean part – that gets old on about, oh, the second day!

    I feel your selling pain. Hopefully it will only last a little while and soon you’ll have a buyer.
