A new chapter for us!

We have finally moved into our new home!!
Yes, that was almost two months ago but at this age, I'm slow.
Moving is ROUGH STUFF!!!
It is one hour south of where we used to live but we all just LOVE IT!

I've been wanting to post but have gotten distracted.
There's been SO much to do.
With a bad back, legs and knees now I'm having to take my time.
It's okay though, it will all eventually get done!

I moved a few peony plants with us and one decided to bud out
while it was still in it's moving pot.
I salvaged one bloom...WOO HOO!
It was absolutely gorgeous and drying now.

I discovered this neat succulent on FB Marketplace!
It's call String of Pearls.
The seller sent me cuttings so I'm hoping they root!

My parents have a large living room on the front of the house
and our living space is a den on the back.
It features a fireplace and had a huge but ugly mirror over it.

Our son removed it and it was a piece of drywall that was stained.
Anyway, I had the idea to cut a piece of luan to cover the space.
I had saved a roll of wallpaper from Goodwill that looks like grasscloth
in a pretty shade of sage green.

I covered the wood and am SO please with how it turned out!
It's held up by three pieces of trim mold.
If I ever get crazy to change it, it will be super easy to wallpaper
over it again!!!

And here's the "after"!!!
I will dress the mantle soon and of course share with you!

Also, we added a precious member to our family this month!
A little female Chi-weenie named Mini!
She's only one year old and so very sweet.
If our dear Ellie had a baby sister
it would surely be Mini!

Our son Brent and his wife Emily came with the kids
a week or so ago and helped place furniture in my new studio!
I hope to start unpacking in the next week or so!!!
Of course I'll share photos too....

I hope all is good in your little corner of the world!!

Hugs and love,

BIG Changes are going on around here!!!

My precious 80 year old parents who have lived in Hiawassee, Georgia
for years now have finally decided that it is time to move back down south
to be near our family.
SO....we've have been searching for the perfect home
that my husband and I can share with them!

Well, we finally found it!
It's an hour south of where all of our boys live but
with the market being so hot and active
we had to look a little further out into the country.
The house is a rambling brick ranch waaaay down
in South Georgia!

BUT listen to this!
It has a living room for my parents and a den for us.
It has a large Master Bedroom and bath for my parents.
It has a large bedroom for us.
AND a guest room too!!!
The icing on the cake?
It has an in ground pool!!!
AND a pool house that will be my studio!

Yes, we need to make a few alterations and updates
but it will be just fine.
I'll share just a few photos but please stay tuned!!!
I'm so excited!
It needs a lot of love but we are all ready to give it!

My new studio!!! My dad is repairing a few pickets on the railing.

I promise to share more soon!
I'm finishing up packing for the next few days
and we will be moving in this coming weekend!

Thank you always for checking in on me here,
Hugs and love, Dawn

What a GREAT way to start the New Year!!!


I've got to share something SO special with you!

I was contacted by a company a few weeks back to see if
I would write a sponsored post about their products.
Well, I checked out their website and LOVED IT!!
Next, I checked out their reviews and they were WONDERFUL!
SOOO...of course I agreed!

The website is
Their products include wallpaper, murals,
canvas prints, framed prints and posters!

The neat thing can browse through their huge selection
of photos and images
OR you can upload your own image
to create any of their items.

As you all know, I adore beautiful images and
ended up ordering a GORGEOUS
wall mural for one wall of my new studio!!!
(Well, when we find the right house that is...)

This is it below!
It's called Cool Summer in the Woods.
I had several others picked out as well,
but ultimately chose this one.
Don't you just love it??

Here's another photo of more of the design.
Now, you know I'm not into modern furniture but
I still felt like the image would look beautiful with
antiques and older furniture as well!

There were a few other images that I loved as well.
Of course they are all botanically inspired!
This Floral Cream was beautiful and
this is what it would look like as a canvas...

This pattern is called Hydrangea in the Vintage section!

This one is so dreamy!
It is called October Morning:

Look at this gorgeous peony image!!!

A mural would be perfect in a baby's nursery or child's room!

How about something precious for a little girl's room?

Or for a little boy's room?

Or what about a cool antique map mural in a library room?

The possibilities are absolutely endless!

So now you can see why fell in love with this website!
The company is in Sweden and the shipping is ULTRA fast!
I was amazed how quickly my mural arrived.

The wonderful thing too?

Now, if we can find our new home with my new studio,
