Hello dear readers
Here is a look at my mom's temporary room!!
Jim built a false wall for me...
and why would I need a false wall
(for the sake of this post, you asked!)
Well, without going into the "t-m-i" zone on the meter reader
(too much info)
let me just say that
we have been trying to move back home with our families in Ohio
for a while now
(almost 2 years!)
we've been here for 7 years,
and although it doesn't seem like a lot of time
look at your child
and zoom reeaallly fast in your mind
back to 7 years ago!
alot of life are in those 7 little years!
moving on ~
~ because the housing market in Nevada in like one of the worst,
early last year, we made the decision to sell our lovely, 3200sq. foot home
(complete with a guest bed and bath room!)
(important detail alert there, I promise!)
thinking that we would rent a home instead
kinda like a no strings attached thinking
and that we'd be ready to bounce
at a moments notice
are you still with me?
but I have a point
honest I do!
in a nut shell ~
we did sell,
less than half of what we bought it for
~ enough said!
through the kilning process of life!!
(curious though, am I at least bronze yet?! HA!!)
fast forward to now ~
we are temporarily in a rental home of 1800sq. foot!!
you read that right
do you see my dilema NOW??!!
we thought we"d only be here for 6 months
okay 8 months tops!
this was only supposed to be T-E-M-P-O-R-A-R-Y situation!
as in gone, baby, GONE!
living in a lovely farmhouse somewhere in the northeast
feeding a few chickens
(what?! I'm just thinking of Belinda here!)
with roses and peonies and lavender growing everywhere....
earth to Rosemary
needless to say
God OBVIOUSLY has other plans!
(and strangely, it is well with my soul!)
so here we are
in our very COZY rental home,
in need of a guest room
what's a girl to do?
look outside of the box of course
(which gets me in trouble most of the time!!)
and ask hubby of mine
to construct this false wall!!!
(by the way ~ awesome job honey!!
meatloaf and mashed potato's for you tonight
I know, but it's one of his favorites!!:)
now, where were we...
the false wall ~
not really a wall,
as in, it only appears to be a wall
can't attach it to anything
it's a rental, kinda wall!
If you're still with me
but I'm loving this false wall that
turned our dining room
a happy little cottage room for my dearest mom!!
(can't wait mom!! only 8 more days)
I made a ruffle slipcover shade light,
complete with sweet little wings ~
perfect for dreaming
and this lovely china cupboard armoire
that's been cleared out
for her pretty little self's stuff!!
I'd like to share that
I have learned
that we don't really own anything in this life
other than how and what we choose to fill our souls up with
and that anything outside of that is a gift
things and stuff come and go.
To just do the best that we can
to keep moving forward
and to graciously continue seeking up
every single day!
and know that this waiting time in our life
this too shall pass!
thanks for reading
your support means alot!
this now concludes the reason for
the false wall!!
If you haven't already put your name in for my giveback,
you may still do so,
I will announce the winner tomorrow afternoon
another little giveaway!!
can we say french lapin?!
until then ~
