A Quick note to say...

Happy Monday darling ones.

ok, so it is officially 2 days until we move, well until we "really move" meaning when the bed and the computer will be there, along with my hair care products.

We had the mean cheese this weekend so most moving was put to a halt, we did a couple trips yesterday so are still making progress...slow progress, but like the polar ice caps we are moving, you just can;t see the results with a naked eye.

I have found myself during trips around town with bubs, looking at all the houses in the "bad"part of town and just thinking look at all these poor people don't have porch swings, or even porches for that matter.

Can you tell I am becoming spoiled and I don;t even live there yet?

Last night after packing up the kitchen stuff and setting it up in the new place we actually sat on our new porch in the swing and enjoyed a cocktail, it was divine.

We also went looking for a few much needed pieces of furniture....I NEED a folding screen (or partition, or room divider...they are all the same), It will be mandatory to separate the dining room and the living room, we also have decided we need a new couch, as the whole "dorm furniture/college kids" thing we have right now will just look so trashy, we also need book cases and a dnew dining room table....eeek, that's a lot....and a lot more than we can afford right now as the house is so expensive...

so I think it will be a room divider and a new couch and book cases and the dining room table will have to wait.

also if anyone knows where I can find a wonderful divider that is less than $200 please let me know...and don't say ikea as they do not have them for delivery and I don't want wicker.

so....I am going to brace you all, My etsy shop will be sorely lacking in new original pieces this week...maybe a couple art cards and a left over collage...but that's it...I will be updating with my wonderful new mirrors, please feel free to buy them.

Tuesday will be my last day with computer access...well technically all should be "fine" in the new place by Wednesday....but I am not reassured, "fine" (their words not mine) seems awfully vague....so, if I go missing that is why....also I might be trapped under a mountain of comic boxes, books, and art supplies...OR I might be sitting drunk and happy on my new porch swing.

either way.

OK, I am off, to read a few more blogs then package up orders to be mailed out and then to pack more house stuff.

thanks for putting up with long and boring post that is all about me and has no pictures...


oh, if you are hankering for something...make sure you read petite heights which was posted yesterday

ps- yesterday I went to check my po box and it was the official start of my favorite season, when all the fall fashion mags start coming in....this time it was Elle, the hillbilly sister to Vogue...it had Lindsay Lohan on the cover and I threw up in my mouth a little.

Do you have an Aaron Brothers Frame Shop near you? They often have "frame" screens which would be rockin' room dividers, def. under $200, more like 89, sometimes on sale, 59.
Okay, all I have is a STOOP on which to sit & drink & watch my street go by. I'm coming over to yours.

Aaah Jenn you will be there soon!! I cannot wait to see photos of your new place (ummm you will be posting photos won't you???) I bet my new home will seem tiny compared to yours - homes always seem so much bigger and spacious in the US compared to the UK. Anyway good luck with the move and don't stay away too long!!! xxx

old doors hinged together make good screens but then you have another project and more stuff to haul...

I hope you are drunk on your porch swing for days.....reading fashion mags as well....that is a fine excuse for no blogging. I can only image how absolutely lovely your autumn is going to be.

Well, jeez, if you don't want the Elle, don't throw it out! You know where to send it.

Good luck with the big time moving! And remember, when it's all done, you can kick back on the porch swing with a lemonade and a banjo!

I am soo happy for you with the big move!
My advice would be world market for a screen. wether they have them I can't be sure. You could also try to make one yourself with shutters you can purchase from the hardwars store. just buy some hinges and attach, you can paint them up to match your decor.
best of luck.

I love that the Elle cover story has gone from a gagworthy celeb interview to the height of irony.

I couldn't agree more about the best time of the year for fashion mags! Do you think we have papers from the days my girls are born? NOPE! Do you think we have the special Fall Vogue mag from the year they are born? But OfcOURSE!!!
I officially have porch swing envy!

I don't know if they deliver but World Market always has really pretty screens when I go in there. I heart most of them, actually. :)

Fall is my favorite time for EVERYTHING! It is my favorite season of all. I can't wait! ::: Squeals excitedly! :::
