We're home ~

Good morning everyone ~ It is a happy happy day indeed.  Mr. Vintage and I are home.  We are finally finished moving.  We still have some work to do, but the bulk of the work is done.  We are HOME.

Of course, I have been painting and you know, fluffing and gardening.

Here is a picture of our new home before we moved in.  It was very neglected and I felt so sad for this lovely old home ~

I fell in love with this home four years ago and it would not leave me.  Whenever we talked about downsizing, I would think about this house.

Well,  we are home ~

Mr. Vintage and I spend countless hours on this front porch, listening to the birds, watching bunnies and deer romp and play.  

I did bring some of my plants with us ~  I could not resist.

My old tractor seat had to come with us of course ;-)

Can you imagine the stories that this home could tell?  Well, I have a funny story for you.  

The Staddon sisters lived in the house.  One was nearly blind but she had a driver's licence, the other could see very well, but did not have a licence.  Yes, you guessed it, the blind sister would drive and the other sister would tell her where to go.  Oh my, can you just imagine?

I do believe that they are still here.  One evening Mr. Vintage and I went out for dinner.  When we returned, around 11:30, I could hear something in the living room.  Well, the television was on and we did not watch television that day.  We still chuckle that the sisters wanted to watch t.v.

 Well, that's it for today.

I will have more pictures for you soon.  

Have a wonderful day!
